Qu-Pad is an engineer’s live mixing tool providing wireless, mobile control for the Qu series digital mixing consoles and controls the mixer remotely via the Wi-Fi connection of a router or access point linked to the mixer’s Network port
With instant access to all live mixing parameters and settings, it gives you the freedom to control the sound right where it is needed; adjust the monitors on stage, roam the venue whilst tweaking the PA, and then mix the show from the heart of the audience.
Qu-Pad and the Qu mixing console can work together to provide simultaneous control of independent functions, for example one engineer can mix front-of-house sound using faders on the console, and another can mix monitors on stage using the iPad!
Number of Connections
The Qu mixer supports a maximum of 8 iOS device connections, including up to two iPads running Qu-Pad, with the other devices running the Qu-You Personal Monitor app or Qu-Control Customisable App for Install which are also available free from the App Store.
Any Allen & Heath Qu series digital mixing console running firmware version 1.9n (n=0-9), with a suitable wireless router (wireless access point) connected to its Network port. Qu-Pad is only compatible with iPad and requires iOS 7.1 or later. The Qu mixer firmware and Qu-Pad app maintenance version numbers ‘n’ do not need to be identical, for example Qu-Pad V1.90 would run with Qu mixer V1.91.
