Allen & Heath has released CQ firmware v1.2 for its CQ series of untra-compact digital mixers, adding features including DCAs, Mute Groups and a freely configurable Custom Layer that promise ‘a new level of user control’.

Allen & Heath CQ v1.2 firmware‘Since launch, CQ has quickly become the smart choice for bands, engineers, venues, and A/V installers looking for a small, easy-to-use mixer packed with our renowned processing and effects,’ says Senior Product Manager, Keith Johnson. ‘For v1.2, we set out to incorporate the most commonly requested features from our fantastic digital community forums, with this user feedback driving a new level of control for CQ mixers.’

At the top of the v1.2 feature list is the addition of four DCAs, each capable of controlling the level of any combination of inputs, outputs and FX, for simple single-fader control of multiple channels, such as a drum kit, without affecting their relative levels. User demand has resulted in four Mute Groups, enabling operators to mute and unmute multiple channels at once using a single button for muting all stage mics or monitor speakers.

The new configurable Custom Layer allows users to set up the four channel tabs with any combination of channel strips for a personalised mixing experience and accelerated workflow.

Additional features include a two-band EQ on FX, remote Midi control, custom colours for outputs in the GUI, and several other improvements.

CQ v1.2 is available now from the Allen & Heath website.
