So what came out @ NAMM 2014?

Well NAMM has rolled around again and as always they is a whole lot of new equipment being released to make us droll. So what should we see coming out?

Well Allen and Heath have released the QU – 24, building on the success of the QU-16. In fact in my eyes this does make more sense than the QU – 16. It should hit our shores in the next month or two and maybe a pricepoint around $5000. It is another exciting release with some great features, such as :

With its responsive touchscreen, 25 motor faders and acclaimed AnalogiQTM recallable preamps, Qu-24 combines exceptional ease of use with class-leading audio performance. Drawing on the technologies and workflow pioneered on our GLD and iLive touring systems, Qu makes Allen & Heath digital mixing more accessible and more compact than ever.
