Coleman Audio QS8MKII - Master Monitor
Special Order

Adds Console Workflow to Your DAW

The Coleman Audio QS8MKII offers a console's worth of goodies in a 1U rackmount chassis. The QS8MKII is perfect for professionals who want to mix in the box, but who want the best features an analog console has to offer, such as a completely passive monitor controller with A/B switch that lets you monitor up to two sources through two sets of speakers. The QS8MKII acts as a zero-latency cue mixer to sum tracks from external sources and route to headphones, as well as an analog summing box to commit up to four sources to a single stereo track. And a remote talkback mic with momentary switch enables you to communicate with clients. If you're looking to enhance your DAW with real-deal analog workflow, Sweetwater can't say enough positive things about the Coleman Audio QS8MKII.

Coleman Audio: studio solutions that don't get in the way

Glenn Coleman's controllers, interfaces, and meters are the result of his 40+ years of technical experience in the audio industry, having worked for the likes of MCI, Atlantic Studios, and Martin Audio. Coleman Audio's dead-simple broadcasting and studio solutions are built with three objectives: to last, to be transparent, and to fill a need for end users. These solutions range from the off-the-line RED48 summing console and MS8A stereo monitor switcher to any number of made-to-order products for customers. If you're looking for quality audio solutions that won't stand in the way of your sound or creativity, think Coleman Audio.
