Q-SYS Designer Software:  Support Policy

QSC strives to bring new software solutions and feature updates to better service our customers. To maximize business performance, you are encouraged to transition systems to the latest Q-SYS Designer Software release.

To ease the transition period from the most recent prior to the current version, QSC will provide technical support, on a best-effort basis, on the most recent prior release of Q-SYS Designer Software (annotated as “End of Life – Supported”) for a period up to twelve (12) months.  After twelve months, the prior software version will no longer be supported by QSC.


This version of Q-SYS Designer Software is no longer available for download.  

We highly recommend that you update your system to the latest Q-SYS software version to take advantage of newer features and improvements.

  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where updating a large number of peripherals might lock up the Core.
  • BUG FIX: The I/O Monitor now works properly with AES, CobraNet, and Dante cards
  • BUG FIX: Fixed the Flow and Label controls for cards in I/O Frames
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where the wrong I/O Card Type was reported

  • BUG FIX: Loop Player now works property with LTC
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where the CXD-Q amplifier would fail if a load, lower than the rated amplifier configuration, was connected. A new impedance limiter now prevents amplifier failure in these cases.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Improved the CXD-Q output short detection.
  • BUG FIX: Added 10 Hz highpass filter to further protect the amp when connected to low impedance loads.  Also added 50 Hz highpass, only when connecting generic 70V/100V speakers.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Core 250i is no longer limited to 16 channels of Q-LAN transmitters and receivers. It now supports 64 flex channels, the maximum number for Q-LAN.

  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where designs with a large number of UCIs would not always show all UCIs in the UCI Viewer.
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where the meter performance for DataPort-connected amplifiers was poor when used with a Custom Voicing.
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where the UCI Viewer would not automatically reconnect to a UCI unless the list of UCIs was showing.
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where the Loudspeaker Monitor did not work in the Core 250/500i
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where the copy/paste of line array loudspeakers caused Q-SYS Designer to exit unexpectedly.
  • BUG FIX: Improved reliability of DataPort-connected amplifier detection.
  • BUG FIX: Synchronization of time to an NTP server deals better with large time jumps.
  • BUG FIX: Fixed an issue where occasionally the CXDQ amplifier would not shut down from the power switch.
  • BUG FIX: Restored the number of active UCI instances supported in a design by raising the total number of Change Groups allowed in a design to 512. Following is the current requirements for Change Groups. Q-SYS Designer running on a PC, External Control Systems, and UCIs are all considered clients to the Core. The maximum number of simultaneous Change Groups is 512.
    • Each Q-SYS Designer instance requires one Change Group

    • Each active iOS UCI requires one Change Group

    • Each active UCI instance (TSC, UCI Viewer), requires two Change Groups each

    • Each CXD-Q / DPA-Q amplifier requires two Change Groups

    • Cores 1100 and 3100 require two Change Groups each

    • Redundant Cores require two Change Groups for control synchronization when redundant networking is used,  or one change group if the network is not redundant.

    • External control systems can have zero to four Change Groups.

  • FIX: Fixed an issue where the Softphone would hang up after 5 minutes when the far end was muted.
  • FIX: Fixed an issue where a large number of Cores on a network caused devices in Q-SYS Configurator to disappear and reappear.

  • FIX: Fixed an issue where Dante cards would not work in the I/O Frame and the I/O Frame 8S.
  • FIX: Fixed an issue where the Dante card sample-rate setting would allow only 48kHz.
