Your tutorial is the exact thing I needed to jump start my "hands-on" training with an A&H SQ7 console. I'm an "old analog guy" too, with over 20 years in live sound reinforcement (small local bands and church applications), and after an 8-year hiatus am getting back into volunteering my time with a new church. The SQ7 is a bit intimidating at first glance, but your tutorial has shown me tips and best practices to use that I know will have me regaining my confidence in a short time. Definitely worth the cost, and I recommend it to anyone needing first-time instruction or a refresher course on this equipment. Thanks for making this available.

Just what I needed

I learned how to handle my church's SQ-5 from YouTube videos, but there was a lot missing, and I spent a lot of time watching videos that repeated the same concepts. Now in this one DVD I have all that I need both for me, and to help teach others how to use the board. This will assure my obsolescence down the road, which is the whole idea, to raise up others that can free you to lead in other areas!

Simple, easy-to-follow course

This course was very easy to follow and shows the power of this board by taking you through step-by-step instructions on where to make your adjustments, how to reorganize controls and pre-sets, as well as save new settings for different users (musicians/inputs).

Highly recommend this course if you're an SQ owner and looking forward to checking out other courses

Best £22 quid I’ve ever spent!!

Amazing step by step tutoring for the SQ7!
I needed to quickly learn as I bought fir a job and had no idea how to even use the basics! I’m now instantly proficient and couldn’t do without this!

Very Helpful!

This video series really speeds up familiarization of the SQ5 mixer. My application was bringing this amazing mixer into my studio solely to handle digital, analog, and CV synths. I would definitely recommend this series given the professional production and the content. If I have one niggle, it would be I have issues with certain accents and it would be wonderful if this video had sub-titles to keep me focused. With all that said, this is a beautifully produced learning aid and highly recommended. G’day. Ted Nashville TN

SQ Series Video Tutorial

This video takes a user through a series of tasks on using the SQ series mixing consoles. These console have many feature & functions which can over whelm a beginner, but the instructor takes you through step by step on each process to help you gain thorough understanding of how to accomplish tasks and gain understanding of the processes involved. I like the hands on approach to learning and you can quick go back and review if needed with this video training. Covers a lot of areas so good for beginners or more advanced users.
