As you don't have an audio interface anyway, the free version's two channel only output won't affect you. However, you should note that QLab is happiest with WAV and AIFF files and that long MP3 files may get truncated. This is an Apple bug, which they seem to be taking an inordinately long time to fix.

I'm still confused by your description of the speaker layout, though: what are the 'four monitors on the wall' doing and what walls are they on? Is there actually a stage? Could you post a picture of the space and the control position? It's difficult trying to fault-find a system from your initial description, I'm afraid.
Thanks for the info. I'm semi familiar with Q labs, the director showed it to me but I won't have to time to jump that learning curve.
There are two monitors on the left wall spaced apart and then two on the right wall going into two amps. I'll try and take a pic as soon as I go back. The four on the wall are another set and then there is the bigger monitors hanging overhead and on the front sides on a balcony.
Yes there is a stage. I've gotten the four on the wall setup using the main out of the mixer and then an aux send through the other two. Now I need to connect the 6 main monitors with the sub (with the poorly labeled snake)
