I’m now a lot smarter about recording with my equipment, and the processing.

I’m now a lot smarter about recording with my equipment, and the processing. Just when I thought I knew what I was doing this course really helped me understand the fundamentals and the proper ways to use the equipment.

Excellent resources from beginners through to advanced

I recently purchased the tutorials on the Allen and Heath SQ series after using the console for a couple of years in a high school setting. I wanted to hone my skills on the advanced functions and settings to use in school productions and have found the tutorials invaluable. I can refer back to specific sections and topics as they are well organised. Some of the basics videos could potentially be shown to the students I am teaching to operate the console in their year 11-12 course. Great to have this complete resource in one place.

Great presentation and easy to follow

This is an excellent walk-through of the SQ boards. David is a great teacher, and he makes you feel at ease while learning by distilling the important points down into actionable information. He does so with a smile as well, which helps :)

SQ6 training review

After watching it seems like every single video ever made about the SQ-6 mixer on youtube and working with my board for over two years, I still had some questions that I just could not find any answers for. Until I landed on David's SQ training video. I was pretty experienced with my board and knew quite a bit going into the training but I finally put the last pieces together and was able to configure some pretty complex routing, recording and monitoring setup thanks to David's excellent teachings. Definitively the best $30 I've spent since the day I got my SQ-6 back in March of 2019. If David were to come out with an "advanced / expert" version showing more complex setups and configurations, especially recording a large concert to a DAW I would be all over that in a minute without question.
If you own an Allen and Heath SQ mixer, BUY this course NOW. You will not regret it, I just wished I would have found it 2 years ago as opposed to last month !.

Allen and Heath SQ Series Video Tutorial

Great training course! David is very knowledgeable and easy to understand. He does a great job with each little detail and lays it out so it makes sense. I am a visual learner. I have watched this course in full once and plan to watch it several more times. This is by far the best training I have found on the Allen & Heath SQ technology. Thank you David!

A&H SQ7 training

Hi, I purchased your A&H SQ7 training are are very glad I did. The traning was spot on for a newbie like me. I have been watching som other trainings online, but your course is absolutely the best I have seen when it comes to simplicity and how to use this mixer in a structured way. I will absolutely recomend this, specialy for anyone like me that are fairly new to this game. Thx a lot for making this course.

Fantastic start to learning SQ6

We just swapped out our soundboard from a 24 channel Mackie analog mixer to the SQ6. And, I had a day to basically learn how to use the SQ6 to support FOH and streaming at our church. David's training was the lifesaver I needed to get up and running quickly. The feedback (the good kind) was great! People commented how good the audio sounded in the room compared to what we had been able to do with our previous board. There is much more to learn on this board, but without David's tutorial I would have been lost.

Learning the SQ7

This tutorial was just what I needed to get me started and than made it possible to use this complex piece of equipment. Your teaching method matches my learning style. Thank you for the way you patiently explained each part of the SQ7.
