Allen & Heath has released a new firmware update for its Qu Series of compact digital mixers. Downloadable from the website, v1.4 introduces several new features, including multiple access user permissions, Windows drivers for multitrack streaming, per scene recall filters, and FX user libraries.
V1.4 includes the Windows drivers, enabling bit-perfect, ASIO and WDM compliant multitrack playback and recording.
New user permissions enable three types of user – admin, standard, and basic – with different levels of access, for example, for volunteer operators in houses of worship, or guest engineers visiting venues. The admin user has access to all functions and can protect selected functions and allocate passwords if required for the other users.
Other new additions include per scene recall filters, FX user libraries, RTA peak band indication, and Qu-Drive transport soft key functions, alongside a number of improvements to the user interface such as 0dB markers and PEQ band fill colours.
