    Allen & Heath Allen & Heath CQ-12T Ultra-Compact Digital Audio Mixer


    Product Description

    Ultra-Compact 12in / 8out Digital Mixer

    CQ-12T is the smallest mixer in the CQ range and is ideal for home recording and streaming, band rehearsals, small gigs, and speech applications.

    Mix Smarter. Work Faster. Sound Better.

    CQ takes our renowned processing and effects, adds exciting new assistive mixing tools, and packages it all up into our smallest, and most affordable, digital mixer series yet.


    Quick and Complete. Pick Your Mixing Style.

    Every input channel on CQ can be switched between two modes.

    Quick Channels offer instrument and application specific processing with the ability to dial in a full channel of processing via a single knob.

    Need more control? Switch to Complete Channels for advanced, in-depth tweaking of parameters.

    Gain Assistant. Faster Setups.

    Setting the correct amount of gain for each channel isn’t the most exciting task, and it quickly eats into your setup time with multiple channels to take care of.

    CQ’s Gain Assistant quickly and accurately sets the optimal gain level for one or multiple input channels and continues to monitor levels during the performance to prevent any nasty peaks or surprises.

    Feedback Assistant. Say Goodbye to Feedback.

    CQ’s Feedback Assistant automatically detects and eliminates problem frequencies using up to 16 filters per output so you can mix with confidence – and forget about feedback.

    Pristine Sound. You Won’t Believe Your Ears.

    CQ draws on technology from our latest generation of live sound consoles to deliver audio quality previously unimaginable at this level of mixer.

    Pristine 96kHz audio is partnered with studio-grade onboard processing and an optimised suite of FX to set a new standard for what’s possible with ultra-compact digital mixers.

    Built-In FX. A New Breed of Effects.

    CQ introduces a new suite of high-quality, user-friendly reverb, delay and modulation algorithms with instrument-specific presets for speedy setup.

    Selected units feature our new FX Assist tool, automatically shaping the effects and dynamically responding to your input signal to ensure your mix is enhanced by FX, not engulfed.

    User Friendly. You’re Always In Control.

    CQ-12T gives you all the tactile control you need to get around the interface quickly.

    The 7″ touchscreen and rotary control make it simple to set up and get mixing, and 3 Custom SoftKeys let you access commonly used functions at the push of a button.

    Connect a router or access point and the free CQ MixPad app also gives you full control of your mix from anywhere in the venue.

    Recording & Playback. Capture the Performance, Wherever You Are.

    CQ packs in multiple recording and playback options to ensure you’re always ready to capture the performance.

    An integrated USB audio interface enables easy multitrack recording, playback and streaming via your DAW, and an SD card slot is provided for reliable multitrack recording and playback on the go.

    You can record and playback stereo files via USB key, and you can even playback from your phone via the built-in Bluetooth functionality.

    I/O. Get Yourself Connected.

    CQ-12T gives you all the connectivity you need to get going with 10 mic/line inputs split across 5 XLRs and 5 XLR/TRS combi sockets, plus a stereo input via a pair of 1/4″ jacks.

    When it comes to outputs, there’s a pair of main mix outputs on XLR plus 6 TRS jack outputs for monitor mixes – enough for the whole band!

    AMM. Simplify Speech.

    The integrated Automatic Mic Mixer (AMM) means you can instantly reduce background noise and improve clarity for speech applications without lifting a finger.

    AMM is available on all input channels, making it the perfect portable mixer for conferences, podcasts, debates and small-scale theatre productions.
