I'm not certain what their motivation might be but I contacted support with my serial number and they passed my info on to their authorized repair facility. They sent me a form to fill out and today they sent me an RMA number along with a shipping label. It left this afternoon. Not sure when I'll get it back but they said it's a simple fix.

Good to know they have handled this well. I am pleased I bought the QU16....the high level of customer support is well documented...

Some Questions for Qu-16 users
« Reply #191 on: March 14, 2014, 11:06:32 am »

I'm looking at adding a new small digital console to my inventory soon, and at the moment, the QU-16 looks like the most likely candidate.

I've read through all 20 pages of this thread, as well as downloading and skimming the relevant parts of the owners manual and the block diagram.  It appears that the most recent firmware (1.3) may have addressed some of the early concerns expressed in this thread.  Can anybody using the current firmware confirm any of these points?

1. Is Tap Tempo now available on the iPad app?  The manual indicates that it is, but apparently it wasn't available earlier in the product's life.

2. Are FX1 and FX2 the only buses that can be assigned to a mute group?  I like to be able to mute the sends going to FX rather than the returns (gated reverb is sooo '80s).  That will work for two FX (which is probably fine), but not the other two.

3. Can mono channels be stereo linked?  I found a reference to that in the pan pot section (6.7), but it's unclear whether than refers to channels that are already stereo pairs, or channels that you have paired yourself.

4. Is there a way to apply a HPF to output buses?  They have PEQ and GEQ, but you appear to only have the option of peaking or shelving for the outside bands' shapes.  A HPF in the GEQ would work too, but if it's there, I couldn't find it.  This is useful for outputs which are basically copies of the main mix, but need reduced low end (front fill, delay speakers, etc.).

Thanks,

GTD

Hi Geoff,
1. Don't know for sure but I think you can access tap tempo from the iPad.
2. You can mute all 4 returns, but at this point not the sends.
3. Yes they can be linked, in the processing section for each channel.
4. not a proper high pass but you can create a high pass of sorts in the PEQ

This is a great sounding, powerful little mixer with a great future (software upgrades)

cheers,
Mike

No tap tempo in the Qu-pad app yet.

Hi folks.  Sorry for the newbie method of posting, but I found no other way. 

Any of you Qu users in the southern Illinois or St. Louis area?  If so, please contact happydogaudio@gmail.com

Thanks!

Does anybody use a gooseneck talkback mic with their Qu-16?

Right now I use a extra mic with a cable, but find it slows down my mixing because I need to hold it plus hold the talkback button, which makes it difficult to adjust while talking back.

I'm worried that because the input is in the back, a 18" gooseneck wouldn't be long enough (and some might not be flexible enough).

Thanks,
Michael

Hi folks.
Where is the best place to post for discussions with other QU owners/users?  Not wanna be's or off topic/thread, just fellow QU owners?

Either a short heavy weighted stand with boom or a headset.  Get an IPad and you won't need talkback, cause you'll be standing right next to the musicians on stage when you would have been using talkback.

Michael...

Do you use your Qu free-standing or in a case?

I have used a gooseneck mic with a double-articulation ( AKG  gN50) and it's fine.  If you're using yours in a case, consider adding an XLR connector to the case in a spot which will work with the mic you want to use.
