Allen & Heath has released a mixing app for its SQ series of personal mixers.

Available for both Android and iOS, the SQ4You app allows up to eight phones or tablets to be simultaneously connected – offering time savings to the audio engineer mixing a whole show single-handed. ‘Most performers will tell you how off-putting bad monitors can be, but in the real world there isn’t always a dedicated monitor engineer on hand to craft that perfect mix,’ says SQ Product Manager, Keith Johnson.

SQ4You’s main ‘Four Wheel Drive’ view is designed to be big, bold and easy to use, providing straightforward level controls over four groups, a master level and mute. Double tapping on a group gives access to more granular controls, including individual channel metering, send levels and stereo pan. Groups can be custom named for quick recognition and channels can be assigned to groups via simple checkboxes, allowing the user to create their ideal custom mix.

‘SQ4You is free, unobtrusive and incredibly easy to teach and learn – most performers will be up and running in a few minutes,’ Johnson adds. ‘Performers will love being able to control their own mix and busy audio engineers will appreciate the time and space to focus on the front-of-house sound. It’s a win-win.’
