It took me some time to get behind it, also, but it's quite simple, if
you know, how to do it. (As always :) )

You can create a cue by simply drag and drop an audio file ShowQ
supports (flac, wav and ogg).
Right-klick on the cue and select "Edit".
Use "Wave" to check how many channels your audio-file has.
Use "Patch" to patch the channels. Normally, you would use "Input 1"
connected to "Output 1", "Input 2" connected to "Output 2", and so on...
(You can use up to 8-channel audio-files! If your soundcard supports
more 8 channels (or more) you can f.e. route some output to jack-rack
for realtime-effects or use an extra-ordinary speaker setup to make the
crowd go "wow, this sound comes from behind"...)
Last not least you must use "Levels" to make your sound audible at all!
"-inf" means "silence" - use f.e. -6 dB for testing. I didn't got behind
the buttons "1", "2", "3", and so on on the buttom, but I activate every
channel I changed before pressing "OK".
This should work.
