The AR84 is an expander audio interface rack for the Allen & Heath GLD, SQ and Qu digital mixing systems

It provides 8 remote controlled mic/line preamps and 4 XLR line outputs.  Up to two AR84 AudioRacks can be added to a GLD system. The AR84 can connect directly to the mixer or to the AR2412 AudioRack to expand the number of system inputs and outputs.  The AR84 is simply an audio interface. It cannot be used by itself. It must connect to the GLD, SQ or Qu mixer which is where the audio is processed.

  • The AR84 is not compatible with Allen & Heath iLive Series components or ACE connection


  • 8 balanced XLR inputs for microphone and line level sources.  The preamps are built into the AR84 rack and their Gain, Pad and 48V phantom power is remote controlled from the mixer via the digital link.  The outputs of the analogue preamps are converted to digital format and transported via a Cat5 cable to be processed and mixed at the mixer. The sockets are numbered 1-8, and can be freely patched in the GLD or SQ I/O screen or in the Qu Setup / I/O Patch / dSNAKE In screen.
  • 4 balanced XLR outputs operating at nominal +4dBu line level.  Any signal can be patched to any socket using the GLD or SQ I/O screen or Qu Setup / I/O Patch / dSNAKE Out menu. The mixer defaults to a logical mapping of these sockets to get you started. The sockets are numbered 1-4.
