The whole point Richard is that it can be done vs. statements it can not be done. For the right amount of money anything can be done, but that negates the cost value factor of an entry level board.

There are many board manufactures who make attempts to accommodate older legacy option boards. Soundcraft is one of those manufacturers.

I agree with your statement concerning the 96k interface, however, the logic is in the adapter, and it is the speed of the bus as it relates to the CPU which determines the highest rate of compatibility. In a nutshell, the bus could run at 192k and be downwardly compatible to 48k or lower. I would put my money on available space as part of the design being the determining factor.

Not really.

Nothing we didn't really already know.

None of my questions from the chat were answered live, so not sure what that feature was about...?

Nice looking board and very well thought out.

Still not loving on the single level LED :(

Very nice looking console though!

So they did answer my questions :) Just via email.

Quote
Q: Is this being recorded and will this go public?
A: Yes, you can view it here:  https://youtu.be/nC4Ac1k3Owk
Q: When using 48kHz stage boxes, does the console run at 48kHz? Can the direct recordings or USB output be set to 48kHz even if the console is running at 96kHz?
The SQ will continue to run at 96kHz, as the SLink port does the clever upsampling. SQ-Drive and USB-B is currently fixed at 96kHz, although we are looking into the possibility of lower sample rate options too.
Q: Depth/Height of rackmount?
A: The rack mounting kit requires 12U of space. When mounted, the top of the SQ-5 is 140mm from the rack rails.
Q: 24x MONO AUX Sends!!!!
A: The mix buses can be configured to act in either mono or stereo modes. So you can have all 12 as stereo or a mixture of mono and stereo, but they are not divisible.

Thanks again!

Meh, they COULD do the mix busses mono... :/ Not that I need it, but for all of y'all out there.

Still don't understand the 8FX but only 4 sends?

I can easily get by with 4FX sends. What all is considered and FX unit, I can think of some stuff I would insert onto a channel so wouldn't need a send.

You can probably run an normal mix send as fx send id you need more then 4. This is possible on gld, soni guessnthisnis an option.

While all true, it's not how the block diagram reads. I'm unclear how the routing works at this point. I should have one by 30 Dec. So we shall see?

Well now ... no activity for a week.  Looks like the fever has broken.

Has anyone stateside touched one yet ?

My rep said he would bring a demo unit mid November ... that's now come and gone.

I'm thinking that we'll be finished with the turkey leftovers long before an SQ appears.

They're out doing gigs in some countries  :)
