Allen & Heath introduced the Que line of digital mixers a while back, and now they’ve added the Que 32. As the name suggests, it has 32 mic preamps, with 32 faders (plus master), so there are no layers. Well, sort of. Auxes, DCAs and FX are on another layer. It has a 7″ touchscreen and some other cool recording/playback features. It looks like a square shot at the X32 from where we sit.
Ever had to install a video screen somewhere you couldn’t easily get power? Now, all you have to do is pull in Cat5 and you can get HDMI, IR, RS232 and up to 140 watts of 120V power!

Most of us are familiar with Dante, the flexible audio network and transport protocol. They have now introduced Via. Via removes the dedicated hardware limitation of Dante and lets any input, output or even software on your computer become a transmitter or receiver for Dante.
