Using the QuPac with the AR 84 expansion.
I maintain that the A&H QuPac is almost perfect. After using a DJ mixer for a while, I am now back to the QuPac for mixing in live setup. For each pattern or scene (song) on the Elektrons one can have a dedicated scene on the QuPac, which means that EQing, compression, effects etc could be, with all setting, recalled with the press of a button. I don’t think there is any other mixer with that small size and yet amazing flexibility.
I now ordered the AR 0804 / AR84 expansion, which gives eight additional inputs. Unfortunately, the device has to go back right away - unusable in a studio due to the loud fan
The fan is unfortunately not low noise, and starts right away, not just in heated situations.
That does not spoil it but in case someone was considering the expansion, I wanted to share my experience.
