QSC TouchMix-8 Compact Digital Mixer
QSC TouchMix compact digital mixers address the necessity of an easy-to-use and easy-to-transport mixer that can simultaneously offer the features, functionality, and performance of high-end professional consoles. In order to solve this quandary, QSC enlisted a panel of eight professional audio veterans, whose backgrounds include using a wide variety of analogue and digital mixing consoles in live performance settings at the highest levels, electrical and mechanical engineering, and proven successful mixer product development. This team designed a mixer that will exceed the needs and expectations of amateurs and professionals alike.
While this mixer can be used in either a "simple" mode for quick easy mixes, or to delve deeply into functionality that satisfies its creators 30 years of live sound, performance, and studio engineering experience, peripheral technologies have also garnered a share of attention during development. TouchMix mixers include a Wi-Fi interface that allows remote control via available iOS mixing app for iPad, making it easy to move through a room while mixing to ensure the best balance for everyone in attendance. It also features direct to hard-drive recording and playback of multi-track wave files, with the ability to record all input channels, plus a user selected stereo output pair, making it ideal for recording live or studio performances.
All of this technology is housed in a lightweight, easily portable frame. This is accomplished in part by its touch sensing 6.1" by 3.5" screen, which allows access to an impressive library of functions and effects, despite its tiny footprint. With this combination of portability and performance, at a modest price point, the QSC's TouchMix is a surefire solution to your audio needs.
