SQ5 Hire

Allen and Heath SQ5 Digital Mixing Desk

Allen and Heath SQ5 hire

Powered by Allen & Heath’s revolutionary XCVI 96kHz FPGA engine, SQ-5 is built for professionals in demanding live sound, recording and streaming applications. Delivering class-leading high-resolution audio with an ultra-low <0.7ms latency, the SQ-5 gives you unrivalled power and audio fidelity. Allen and Heath SQ5 hire from Innovation Productions.


With each new design, the Allen & Heath team strives to get closer to the ultimate mixing experience.

SQ’s dashboard is centred around a high-res 7” capacitive touchscreen, framed by an array of high-grip, illuminating encoders to create an intuitive, integrated blend of clear visual feedback and immediate, hands-on control.

Channels and mixes can be dragged and dropped to any strip, with custom naming and colour coding on the colour strip displays, allowing you to build a mixing environment that works for you.

Each strip features our patented Chromatic channel metering system, giving you at-a-glance level indication thanks to LEDs with variable brightness and colour.

The SQ MixPad app is available free on iOS, Android, Windows and macOS platforms, providing offline editing and online wired or wireless control of the main mixing functions. More on Mixpad App
