Sneak previewed early in 2014, the eagerly awaited QSC TouchMix is now shipping to Australia.
TouchMix combines the huge functionality of a powerful digital mixer in a pre-configured and easy to use package with touchscreen replacing the majority of controls. With this very powerful yet simple to use combination it is expected to find application within a wide range of applications from musicians and bands to production professionals and live performance venues.
The two mixers in the range, TouchMix-8 and TouchMix-16, are both laptop size and weight and include on-board set-up wizard, preset libraries and help menus to assist users with channel configuration, proper gain adjustment, effects selection and more. The capacitive touch screen combined with a rotary encoder and function and user programmable buttons provides fast and intuitive operation.
TouchMix-8 offers eight quality microphone preamps (4 with XLR/TRS combos) plus two stereo inputs along with L/R outs and 4 mono aux outs. For TouchMix-16 the complement is 16 mic (4 with XLR/TRS) along with 8 auxiliaries (2 for IEM feeds).
All input channels include full function gates, compressors, four-band parametric EQ and channel selectable phantom power. Four multi-effects processors offer reverbs, delay, chorus and pitch change plus a pitch corrector. Output processing includes 1/3 octave graphic EQ, delay, limiter and notch filters.
All presets and custom settings and mixer scenes can be saved to internal memory or USB. Up to 22 tracks (all inputs plus a stereo mix) can be recorded directly to USB hard-drive and mixed down on TouchMix or exported to your favourite DAW.
TouchMix is fully controllable by iOS device and a USB Wi-Fi adapter is included. A zip-up padded carrying case is included for protection and easy transport.
TouchMix-8 and TouchMix-16 will retail for $1,499 and $2,199 respectively.
QSC is distributed in Australia by Technical Audio Group, 43-53 Bridge Road, STANMORE NSW 2048.
