Smart and Simple for Anyone to Use

While the QSC TouchMix series packs the connectivity and processing capabilities of much more complicated mixers, its simple interface and built-in help make it easy to use, even for novices. Whether or not you’re experienced with setting up a mixing board, the TouchMix series is designed to help you get great sound fast. In Simple Mode, your TouchMix mixer will optimize channel and effects settings for the best results in a variety of settings, similar to the "Auto" function on a DSLR camera. An index of presets helps you find the best sound possible for vocals, guitars, drums, or any other sound source. And if you ever need some extra help navigating the TouchMix interface, there’s a handy "Info" button that will explain any feature or parameter for you right on the touchscreen display.

Power and Sound Quality Any Pro Will Appreciate

Even though the TouchMix series is designed to be easy to use, it has everything any experienced professional needs. While beginners may use the Simple Mode, Effects Wizard, and Gain Wizard to get a great sound, there’s nothing keeping you from tweaking everything yourself in the Advanced Mode to fine-tune the sound of your production. All input channels have a 4-band parametric EQ, as a well as a gate and compressor. All aux outputs, DCAs, mute groups, and main outputs have a 1/3 octave graphic EQ, notch filters, limiters, and delay. You have all the tools you need to mix any show with confidence.

Monitor Any Way You Like with Versatile Aux Sends

Unlike many compact mixers in this class, the QSC TouchMix-16 gives you six aux sends for comprehensive monitoring options (four aux sends on the TouchMix-8). And while you can set up individual monitor mixes and send them to typical stage monitors, the TouchMix’s aux sends also let you drive in-ear monitors or headphones directly. So if the TouchMix is on-stage with the performers, you can connect IEMs without having to connect a separate headphone amplifier/distributor.

Record and Play Back Tracks from a Hard Drive

Recording your live shows is easy with the QSC TouchMix series - you don’t even need a computer or separate recorder. Just connect an external USB hard drive to your TouchMix mixer and you’re good to go. You’ll be able to record all inputs, as well as a combined stereo mix, in 32-bit Broadcast Wave format. You can play back recorded tracks through the mixer as backing tracks or import them into your DAW software later for mixing.

Manage Your Mix Anywhere in the Room via Built-in Wi-Fi

With your tablet or smartphone, you can adjust virtually every parameter on the TouchMix mixer from anywhere in the room. The free remote control app controls all mixer parameters, making it easy to walk the room or tweak monitor mixes from the stage. Best of all, you don’t need any additional hardware to connect wirelessly! Your TouchMix series mixer comes with a Wi-Fi adapter that creates the network connection between your mixer and your device.

Touchmix 16

Outstanding company and great advice. Love my touchmix. Thanks for being a fantastic company!

The little digital board that does great things!

After playing with this mixer I finally got to test its chops at a dance party with 3 different bands. All I can say is, "Where has this little mixer been my whole life?!?" Not only did I get all three banks mixed but was able to stand in the back of the room with my iPad and have complete control of the stage 30' away. The quality is great and the amount of outputs make monitor mixing a breeze. I did find it more difficult at first to get fine mixes as fast as a analog board simply because there are no physical faders, but once I got use to how it responds to my touch (and using the jot knob) it became easier. I also found the ability to set up the whole gig prior to me even arriving to the event an amazing advantage (#GoodByeAnalog). The case it comes with was a lot better quality than I expected but still upgraded to a hard case. If you need an easy to use, flexible, and light travel mixer, you can't beat this one.

One word is all you need: Incredible

I actually own this (the Touch Mix 16)I was afraid that the touch interface may be too complicated but nope, turns out its right up my alley. Im coming from a Presonus 16.0.2 so granted I have a little experience with digital mixers - but really just a little.Everything was so easy to get going. I spent the first couple hours learning the controls and functions and was able to setup all my different venue scenes without hooking anything up. Granted I could not hear the final mix but I was able to set the Main EQ and ready my inputs by custom naming them and adding all the presets for each instrument. Plugged everything up today to do a dry run to hear the results of my efforts and sans a bit of tweaking I am VERY impressed! On the fence? Don't be. Its the best board I've used. It is also whisper quiet. I was already a HUGE fan of QSC but this should make them legendary!

Tremendous Experience !!!

Let's not kid ourselves, it's not a Midas Pro 2, but for me a Midas Pro 2 would be a waste of money. I need something simple and usable as I'm new to digital mixing. This product completely exceeded my expectations. Great sound quality, easy to navigate, great defaults preprogrammed in from QSC. This works great when I do my solo performances on stage, (Used in conjunction with the QSC K12's and K Subs). And to my surprise has opened a whole new recording experience for me in my music room at home. A few comments here though, If your a solo or small group, this product is wonderful. If I were doing audio for a band or permanent install such as a House of Worship, I'd prefer to step up just a little, maybe the Behringer X32 Compact, Presonus 16:4:2 AI or larger. But for what QSC intended this to be, they hit the nail on the head. I own it, love it, and look forward to more exciting products from QSC in the future !!!

This mixer is THE BOMB! The instrument/mic presets alone are worth the money! I had the whole band loaded into the mixer and ready to go before I even brought it to it's first gig!!! Just set the input gain, bring up the slider volume into the mix and PRESTO-instant GREAT sound!!!!!
