We can mix if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
Because your friends don't mix
And if they don't mix
They're no friends of mine.

Safety mix....

Okay, now back to the current decade.... 8)

I have my hat on.

The comment about the X32 made me LOL...  :)

Seriously, who would have thought that that would be anyone's 'safety mixer'...  :)
Yea .... pretty crazy eh?  Even crazier is that I didn't even think about how ironic my statement was until you pointed it out!

You guys have missed your calling.  Comedy is your thing ;)

I'm actually listening to Randy Newman as I'm reading this! :o

And after all these years the competition still has not achieved feature parity.
Which X32 "features" are those? The audio dropouts/explosions due to Ethernet cable sensitivity?  The lack of a touch screen? The inflexible routing?  :)

The X32 was the first digital mixer to not suck too much at a <$4000 price point.  Other than that, I'm unaware of any features the X32 has on the current Soundcrafts and A&H desks.  The SQ series has been out for 5 minutes.  They'll fix the IPad control bug soon, I'm sure.

Granted, the finicky nature of the console needing specific ethernet cable configurations is a little annoying, but most other mixers in this price range do not have:

1)  Android remote support
2)  Decent off-line editor (Soundcrafts is particularly bad IMO)
3)  Off-line editor that runs on PC, OSx, and Linux
4)  Side chain triggers for gate and compressor
5)  Adjustable filters on trigger for gate and compressor
6)  Multi-band compressor
7)  Flexible insert points
8)  RTA on all PEQ's and EQ's
9)  2 modes of RTA
10)  6 segment full meter bridge (compared to 1, 3, etc)
11)  Snipits within scenes (much more powerful scene management)
12)  LCD Scribble Strips

I may have miss-stated one or two, or missed one or two as well. 

It isn't really a feature, but it should be stated that the support of the product has been excellent (yea, I'm talking about Behringer here ;) ). 

Another point is that the infrastructure surrounding the mixer is half the cost of the competition (stage boxes, IEM remote mixers, etc).

I agree that it feels strange that someone would consider their Behringer X32 the solid backup solution though ;)

Mixing Station Pro QU adds all of these to the A&H QU series.
For me, it makes these mixers usable.
One hopes David will be porting in the SQ series, as well.

Is anyone using Midi over TCP/IP using the Ethernet connection using a Windows computer? If you are doing Midi over Ethernet did you have to load an Ethernet Midi driver for a PC? If you did what Midi  TCP/IP driver are you using? I am on Win7pro 64. I am aware that I can do Midi over USB on the SQ6.


I want to learn how to do Midi over Ethernet on anSQ6 because I will have access to one and I will have more limited access to a dLive and on that mixer it looks like Midi over Ethernet is the only choice there isnt a USB connector for that on the dLive. So if I can get it working on a Windows PC over the Ethernet on an SQ6 then I assume the same will work for the dLive.

Sorry Kevin, I can't help you (yet)

But my valentines gift to myself came in  ;D

I guess Santa didn't forget about me  8)

I'll do some review type stuff as I 'play' with it.

There's been some troubleshooting type posts over at the A&H forums so while I'd love to take it out to this gig on Friday, I'm not sure I should without some testing.

---

Anyone have anything specific they want me to checkout for them, or does most of y'all already have your SQ's?
