Ultra-Compact 12in / 8out Digital Mixer
CQ-12T is the smallest mixer in the CQ range and is ideal for home recording and streaming, band rehearsals, small gigs, and speech applications.
Mix Smarter. Work Faster. Sound Better.
Quick and Complete
Pick Your Mixing Style
Every input channel on CQ can be switched between two modes.
Quick Channels offer instrument and application specific processing with the ability to dial in a full channel of processing via a single knob.
Need more control? Switch to Complete Channels for advanced, in-depth tweaking of parameters.
Setting the correct amount of gain for each channel isn’t the most exciting task, and it quickly eats into your setup time with multiple channels to take care of.
CQ’s Gain Assistant quickly and accurately sets the optimal gain level for one or multiple input channels and continues to monitor levels during the performance to prevent any nasty peaks or surprises.
Say Goodbye to Feedback
CQ’s Feedback Assistant automatically detects and eliminates problem frequencies using up to 16 filters per output so you can mix with confidence – and forget about feedback.
A New Breed of Effects
CQ introduces a new suite of high-quality, user-friendly reverb, delay and modulation algorithms with instrument-specific presets for speedy setup.
Selected units feature our new FX Assist tool, automatically shaping the effects and dynamically responding to your input signal to ensure your mix is enhanced by FX, not engulfed.
You’re Always In Control
CQ-12T gives you all the tactile control you need to get around the interface quickly.
The 7″ touchscreen and rotary control make it simple to set up and get mixing, and 3 Custom SoftKeys let you access commonly used functions at the push of a button.
Connect a router or access point and the free CQ MixPad app also gives you full control of your mix from anywhere in the venue.
Get Yourself Connected
CQ-12T gives you all the connectivity you need to get going with 10 mic/line inputs split across 5 XLRs and 5 XLR/TRS combi sockets, plus a stereo input via a pair of 1/4″ jacks.
When it comes to outputs, there’s a pair of main mix outputs on XLR plus 6 TRS jack outputs for monitor mixes – enough for the whole band!
The integrated Automatic Mic Mixer (AMM) means you can instantly reduce background noise and improve clarity for speech applications without lifting a finger.
AMM is available on all input channels, making it the perfect portable mixer for conferences, podcasts, debates and small-scale theatre productions.
The official CQ-12T Soft Case is the perfect lightweight option for transportation of your mixer.
Rack ear kits are available for installation of your CQ-12T into a standard 19″ rack.
