Allen & Heath - SQ6 48 Channel Mixer

SQ-6 desk

Mix a masterpiece Driven by Allen & Heath’s game changing XCVI 96kHz FPGA engine, the SQ-6 has been designed for professionals who are in the most demanding live sound situations. The SQ-6 brings world class high res audio fidelity with super low 0.7ms latency, ensuring unmatched power and audio fidelity. The mixer has 24 onboard preamps and 8 stereo effects engines, each with dedicated return channels and access to the lauded RackExtra FX library. 12 stereo mixes make the SQ-5 the perfect partner for in-ear monitoring, whilst Automatic mic mixing takes the strain in multi-mic situations. The SQ-6 is a tool for professional engineers in any live sound environment.

Tailored to Suit Your Workflow

Work the way you want to work Each new design from Allen & Heath aims to take another step towards creating the perfect mixing experience. At the heart of the SQ-6 is a high-res 7” capacitive touchscreen, surrounded by a variety of illuminated encoders to give an intuitive, user friendly and integrated blend of easy to see visual feedback and instant hands on control. SQ-6 desk Each channel and each mix is able to be moved with a simple ‘drag and drop’ process to any strip, alongside customised naming and colour coding, allowing you to tailor a mixing environment which lets you work how you want to work. Each strip features Allen & Heath’s patented chromatic channel metering system, allowing you an at-a-glance indicator of levels, thanks to the LED’s featuring adjustable brightness and colours.

Tough as Nails, Easy on the Eye

rigorously Tested The touring and live show world is inevitably tough on gear. Fortunately, Allen & Heath understand this and have factored this in when designing the rock solid SQ series. Allen & Heath devised their most rigorous testing procedure to ensure the new series could withstand the live environment. From the 3-tier, full metal housing, to the extruded aluminium bar, the SQ is tough as nails, whilst at the same time remaining a beautiful desk to work with.

Expand - Grow - Network

sq-6 desk

Dante, Waves and more The SQ series is at the heart of an increasing family of apps, expanders, audio networking, personal mixers and more, which allows you to connect, adapt and expand as much as you could want. The SQ series is compatible with the industry’s leading audio networking standards too, simply add an audio networking card such as Dante or Waves to the SQ’s I/O port and the SQ is set to integrate with installed systems, provide a digital Front of House/Monitor split and much more.

The ME Personal Mixing System


limitless potential The SQ series is compatible with the ‘ME Personal Mixing System’, a system devised to allow performers to have complete control of their own monitor mixes. The amount of ME-1 and ME-500 personal mixers you can add is completely up to you, any number can be daisy-chained from the SQ’s SLink port.

Total Control Over Your Mix

4K Recording

...And for the artists Allen & Heath have developed 2 utterly essential apps for the SQ range. The ‘SQ MixPad’ for engineers, and ‘SQ4You’ for artists. SQ MixPad is a free to download app, for iOS, Android, Windows and macOS platforms, which provides handy suite for editing offline, and online wired or wireless control of the SQ’s main mixing functionalities. ‘SQ4You’ on the other hand is a personal mixing app to work alongside the SQ series mixers, which allows as many as 8 artists to have complete control over their mix in the monitors from Android or iOS devices, leaving the engineer to have total focus on the FOH sound.

Immense Processing Power

sq5 desk

Create the perfect mix Allen & Heath’s new SQ-6 desk holds all the processing power you could need to produce the perfect mix, and more. Each of the 48 inputs has HPF, a high-speed gate with sidechain and filter, a musical 4-band parametric EQ and Peak/RMS compressor to give you maximum control and shaping of levels and transients. Mixes have parametric and 28 bands graphic EQ alongside compressor as standard, each of these ready to switch in when you need.
