The console features 12 stereo mixes—configurable as groups or auxiliaries—making it an ideal choice for in-ear monitor setups. Pick up the SQ-7 Digital Mixer at Guitar Center for your next demanding live sound event.

Revolutionary FPGA Engine Provides Pristine Sound

The SQ-7 is driven by Allen & Heath's 96kHz XCVI FPGA engine, which delivers high-resolution audio quality, latency of less than 0.7ms and optimized dynamic range. The XCVI engine powers the SQ-7 to handle high channel counts at 96kHz with massive mix headroom, thanks to a 96bit accumulator. Embedded DEEP plugins on all 48 inputs and mixes provide boutique compressor and preamp emulations without added latency or setup hassles.

12 Stereo Mixes for Powerful IEM Control

With 12 stereo mixes and both parametric and graphic EQ on each mix, the SQ-7 is an ideal in-ear monitor mixer. The SQ-7's compact, rugged build makes it suitable for touring, providing flexibility and reliability over unpredictable house monitor systems.

High I/O Count for Demanding Productions

As the largest model in the SQ Series, the SQ-7 provides 32 premium mic preamps and 16 XLR outputs for ample I/O. Using the SLink port, the SQ-7 can expand up to 48 mic inputs by connecting to rack and stage boxes like the AB168, AR2412, AR84 and DX168. The SQ-7 is also compatible with Dante and Waves audio networking cards, providing digital splits and integration into installed systems.

Advanced Features for Professional Use

The SQ-7 includes professional features like advanced automatic mic mixing for conferences, multitrack recording to USB and a free iOS/Android app for wireless control. With a rugged, all-metal chassis, the SQ-7 is built to withstand the demanding conditions of live sound. Fully customizable channel layouts, soft keys and soft rotaries provide intuitive control over your workflow.
