One of the highlight new releases of 2013. Our first glance was "looks like a digital Wizard 16" however a closer look shows this one is more like a small footprint GLD series console.
With 16 microphone (or line) inputs on the rear, it's simple to plug-and-play, however if you'd prefer to go remote for your preamps, simply plug your Cat5 cable in the dSNAKE port, and connect to AR2412 or AR84.
Moving faders at this price? Of course they're included. USB Audio Streaming: Qu-16's built-in interface streams multitrack audio to your Mac - channels 1 to 16, the Main LR mix and 3 selectable stereo pairs.
