Allen & Heath Collaborates with Audix on New Microphone Presets

by | Jul 22, 2021 | Audio, Gear, News, Production

Allen & Heath and Audix have announced the release of a new collection of ProFactory microphone presets for Qu, SQ and Avantis digital mixers.

Building on Audix’s original ProFactory presets for the Qu Series in 2018, the new collection spans a wider range of microphones and applications as well as marking the first time ProFactory presets have been available for SQ and Avantis mixers. The 30 presets cover 18 microphones from the Oregon-based manufacturer, including the D2, D4, D6, i5, and OM range of vocal microphones, and provide optimized EQ starting points for engineers of all abilities in live and recording/streaming applications.

“Audix microphones and Allen & Heath digital mixers have proven to be a very popular combination, even before we released the original Qu presets three years ago,” says Keith Johnson, Qu/SQ Product Manager at Allen & Heath. “With both Audix and Allen & Heath expanding their product ranges since then, it seems like the perfect time to revisit our collaboration and bring the benefits to more users than ever before.”

Steve Young, Director of US Sales at Audix, adds, “In high-stress environments like festivals or corporate events, having these presets will save an engineer valuable time by simply having predetermined starting points for typical adjustments like HPFs and EQ. For professional engineers, these settings will likely be close to what you dial in for every show, but for beginners, they will eliminate a ton of guesswork.”

The microphone presets are available here as a free download.
