Allen & Heath Qu-32 used to manage Korean concert

Renowned pianists, Kevin Kern and Daydream, recently held a joint concert at KEPCO Art Centre in Seoul, Korea. Audio for the event was managed by an Allen & Heath Qu-32 compact digital mixer with AB168 remote IO audio rack.

The focus of the concert was to capture a live recording for TV broadcast, and also use the recording to mix down a live album, as well as provide live sound reinforcement. The project was managed by director, Jaehoon Um, who has a distinguished career in recording and mixing more than 6,000 pieces of K-POP, and Film and TV drama sound tracks.

Each microphone was connected to the AB168, which was installed on stage and connected to the Qu-32 with single CAT5e. All sources were processed and mixed on the Qu-32, which provided FOH mixes and broadcast feeds. The multi-track recording system used a Nuendo Live 24bit/48kHz broadcast wav format as the DAW. An iMac was connected to the Qu-32 via USB for multi-track signal transmission.

Um said: "The performance of the Qu-32 and AB168 was outstanding. At first, I was concerned about achieving a studio quality mix but the system provided a flawless and clean sound and really surprised me! I will definitely use this console again. Also, the DSP quality of the Qu-32 is great. I think this console is amongst the best consoles I've operated recently."
