Product Description

Six-fader, two-bus Axia DESQ console is a cost-effective, small-footprint console option perfect for small production studios, remote vehicles, content ingest stations, etc. DESQ has two stereo mixing buses and a Preview (cue) bus, six high-quality 100mm conductive-plastic faders for silky-smooth operation and long life, razor-sharp OLED channel options displays, an OLED meter display with switchable VU / PPM ballistics, and monitor / headphone controls for auditioning of Program buses or two assignable External monitor source selections.

There’s also an OLED time-of-day clock + timer display, with auto / manual reset option. As with all Axia consoles, aircraft-quality switches feature all-LED lighting; the anodized work surface has rub- proof etched markings that can’t rub off. Additional features include automatic mix-minus for phone callers and codec sources, EQ for voice sources, and Show Profile instant recall of up to four pre-defined console “snapshots”.

DESQ requires no countertop cutout and takes only 16” square of desk space; it connects to the QOR.16 integrated console engine with a single power/control cable. DESQ is ideal for standalone installation, but works with larger Axia networks too. A DESQ control surface and a QOR.16 integrated console engine constitute a complete RAQ system, but two DESQ consoles, or one RAQ and one DESQ console, may be paired with a single QOR.16 for cost-effective multi-console deployment.
