Allen and Heath’s SQ-6 is a 48 channel Digital Mixer with 25 faders that is compact, yet powerful. At the center of its performance is a XCVI 96kHz FPGA engine that allows for high fidelity and an ultra-low latency of less then 0.7ms. It includes 24 amazing sounding preamps, 8 stereo FX, and access to the best RackExtra FX library. Also provided are 12 stereo mixes for in-ear monitoring.
Designed with an easy to use workflow, it allows great hands on control. A 7” capacitive touchscreen integrates clear visual feedback, and allows you to drag and drop channels and mixes to build a custom mixing environment. The SQ-6 can be expanded up to 48 mic inputs via stage box expanders. It features Deep Processing ability for hand-picking boutique compressor and preamp emulations to match your style and needs.
Ideal for conferences, and churches!

The Ultimate IEM Mixer
With no less than 12 stereo mixes and super-low latency, and both parametric and graphic EQ on every mix, SQ is the perfect companion for in-ear monitoring setups. SQ’s airline-friendly compactness and rugged build quality mean there’s no reason to gamble on house monitor consoles again.
Expandable up to 48 mics
SQ-6 has all the onboard I/O you need for standalone operation. Thanks to its SLink intelligent port, SQ can also be expanded up to a total of 48 mic inputs via a family of 96kHz and 48kHz rack and stage box expanders (e.g. AB168, AR2412, AR84 and DX168), making it a flexible, mix ‘n’ match solution for owners of other Allen & Heath digital systems. You can also link your SQ directly to another SQ or even a dLive system.
Flexible multitrack recording
The integrated SQ-Drive makes it quick and easy to capture a 96kHz multitrack or stereo recording of the show direct to a USB key or drive. No software setup, no soundcard driver issues and no extra laptop to bring to the performance. SQ-Drive is also a smart way to manage walk-in music.
ME Personal Mixing System
SQ is fully compatible with the ME Personal Mixing System, allowing the performers to take control of their own monitor mixes. Any number of ME-1 and ME-500 personal mixers can be daisy-chained from the mixer’s SLink port, or from a connected remote expander.
