The SQ-7 is the 33-fader flagship console in the SQ series powered by Allen & Heath’s 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine. Created to excel in demanding scenarios such as AV, corporate events, live productions and houses of worship, the SQ-7 offers pristine high-resolution audio quality and an ultra-low latency of <0.7ms.
The console features 32 onboard mic preamps, plus 8 stereo FX engines with dedicated stereo return channels and access to the renowned RackExtra FX library. SQ is a natural choice for in-ear monitor setups, providing 12 stereo mixes (configurable as groups or auxes), and the Automatic Mic Mixing makes it an excellent choice for conferences, panel talks and more.
There are 32 pristine XLR mic or line inputs, along with a talkback input that can serve as an extra input when needed. There are also 3 stereo line inputs that can be used as mono inputs, two using ¼” TRS jacks, and one on a 3.5mm mini jack for convenience. Any combination of direct outs, FX or Mix outputs can then be routed at will to the SQ-7’s 16 XLR, 2 TRS jack and stereo AES digital outputs.
Thanks to its SLink intelligent port, SQ-7 can be expanded up to a total of 48 mic inputs via a family of 96kHz and 48kHz rack and stage box expanders (e.g. AB168, AR2412, AR84 and DX168), making it a flexible solution for owners of other Allen & Heath digital systems. You can even connect to another SQ, Qu or dLive system for two way audio patching.
SQ is the centerpiece of a growing ecosystem of apps, expanders, audio networking, personal mixers and more, allowing you to connect, adapt and expand to your heart’s content. It’s compatible with leading audio networking standards too – add an audio networking card such as Dante or Waves to SQ’s I/O port and you’re ready to integrate with installed systems, provide a digital FoH / Monitor split and more.
The integrated SQ-Drive makes it quick and easy to capture a 96kHz multitrack or stereo recording of the show direct to a USB key or drive. No software setup, no soundcard driver issues and no extra laptop to bring to the performance. SQ-Drive is also a smart way to manage walk-in music.
