SAE in Mexico recently opened a new live audio engineering degree course, installing Allen & Heath’s new Qu-24 compact digital mixer as the teaching console.
Supplied by Allen & Heath’s Mexican distributor, Audyson, students will learn to mix using Allen & Heath digital mixers, starting with the Qu-24 and progressing onto larger consoles, such as the GLD-80. The course will also include practical sessions, placing students in real situations with live bands, where they will also mix using A&H consoles. One such session has already taken place with a Qu-24 at FOH, with additional IO provided by an AR2412 audio rack, and a ME personal monitoring system for the musicians.
“We are using the Qu-24 and GLD-80 with SAE students because we want the new generation of sound engineers to know about the excellent sound quality and ease of use, and way to mix of the Allen & Heath range,” comments Audyson’s audio specialist, Marco Acevedo Mena.
