Compact digital mixer with spectacular GUI.

The QSC TouchMix is designed for musicians and production professionals who need the power and capability of a large mixing console in a compact, affordable and easy to use format. TouchMix offers enough power and functionality to satisfy demanding professionals as well as a range of features and functions that help less experienced users achieve great results. A fantastic design, sure to be a popular piece of equipment.

Twelve dedicated XLR ins, four XLR and 1/4" hybrid inouts, and a pair of TRS 1/4" make for a very capable ionput scheme. It has stereo AUX outs as well in addition to its XLR main outs. Cue and moniter out, six XLR AUX outs. WiFi dongle, dual USB ports and a dedicated talkback channel. Four professional effects engines and even one channel of pitch correct, assignable to any input.

The TouchMix-16 provides the user a choice of Advanced Mode operation, which has total control over all parameters or Simple Mode, which provides only the most essential controls. For many practical engagements, Simple Mode is all you’re likely to require. It offers everything you need and nothing you don’t.

The QSC TouchMix Series represents a breakthrough in innovation and digital mixer design - the result of collaboration between QSC and industry icons Greg Mackie and Peter Watts. TouchMix resets the bar for performance and value and redefines the user experience for professionals and novices alike.

    Comments about QSC TouchMix-16 16-Channel Compact Digital Mixer:

    This is by far the best compact digital mixer I have ever worked with. The people at QSC really know what's going on out there in the musician world and make products very user friendly. I highly recommend this new mixer from QSC to any performer or band. From factory presets, to on-board Advance Effects including reverb, delay, chorus, pitch shift & correct , saving your scenes from different venues, and having enough aux outputs to have your whole band on a personal monitor system with their own effects is just plain awesome! Plus controlling the whole mix from the iPad app is a great feature, especially if you don't have a sound person. Remember its good to invest your money in great quality gear to get a great quality sound and this mixer is beyond a winner for that!

      Comments about QSC TouchMix-16 16-Channel Compact Digital Mixer:

      We recently installed an outdoor sound system on our corporate campus. I'm a fan of QSC products and after reading about the new Touchmix mixers it was the natural choice. We ended up receiving our Touchmix 16 a couple of weeks before it officially ships and it has exceeded my expectations.

      The Touchmix 16 is part of a semi-installed outdoor sound system. It's rack mounted with an 8ch Yamaha amp, 2x sennheiser wirless mics, and a BT receiver. The speakers are permanently mounted QSC AD8T and ADS-52T speakers in the main pavilion and Yamaha VXS5 speakers in the side pavilions.

      With the Touchmix we have a mixer/speaker processor/HD recording system that can be operated with an iPad, but - unlike the uber-expensive systems spec'd out by installed sound contractors - does not REQUIRE a tablet or PC for setup and calibration. I can see why all three contractors bidding on the job poo poo'd the Touchmix: it eliminated a ton of expensive rack-mounted gear and was super easy to set up.

      I need to give a shout out to QSC's tech writers: the manual is superb. The writing is concise, user-friendly, and humorous. BUT... if you've spent much time with mixers you won't need to read it in order to use the Touchmix - the software is THAT well designed.

      In terms of truly useful features, the QSC engineers went berserk. The marketing literature and specs do a great job of describing what the unit can do but don't capture the subtle and useful ways many of the features are implemented.

      Some examples:

      If you notice that a channel has gone into clipping you can use the Gain Wizard to get it sorted. The Gain Wizard looks at how long and how often the channel has clipped and tells you how much to turn down the input gain. That's a really nice touch!

      You can save presets and apply them to individual input channels... Or to the entire mix (scenes).

      When you save a scene you have the option of not saving the fader levels. This lets you recall compression, EQ, Gating, Effects, Routing, etc. and just set the levels.

      Setting a time delay between speakers for a more cohesive sound is easy. There's one knob and three readouts: feet, meters, and time. Watch the readout you're most comfortable with and turn the knob. Simple.

      You can link mono channels to form a stereo pair... on the input channels and on the Aux outputs.

      DCA groups make it easy to raise/lower the level of several channels all at once. DCA groups can apply to individual channels as well as the Aux outputs. I've never used DCA groups before and the interface was so intuitive I grouped four Aux outputs into three groups and renamed them in about 10 minutes... Without the manual.

      Channels, Aux outputs and DCA groups can all be renamed. Just click in the name box and start typing.

      The folks at QSC obviously put a lot of thought into who would use the mixer, where they would use it, and how. I'm old school when it comes to mixers - I like faders and knobs that I can touch and feel. But after just a few minutes with this mixer I would feel very comfortable mixing a small gig or contemporary church worship service with it.
