The QSC TouchMix-16 mixer is ideal for professionals as well as less experienced users. Tactile hardware controls and a touch screen allow fast, intuitive operation. Play back from or record to a USB hard-drive without a PC.

TouchMix is quite simply the most powerful, compact mixer ever created.
QSC's TouchMix 16 offers the features, capabilities and sound quality of the world’s most esteemed large format consoles in a highly compact and portable package that’s small enough to be carry-on luggage. Perfect for solo and duo musicians, small bands and AV production professionals, the TouchMix 16 goes “Beyond Mixing” by offering Wizards, Presets and other beneficial tools that help both seasoned audio professionals and novices alike get great results quickly and easily.

Taking small-format mixing to the next level for both professional and novice users alike, QSC is pleased to introduce Version 3.0 for theTouchMix 8 and TouchMix-16 Series (and Version 1.2 for the TouchMix-30 Pro). The new firmware is available as a free download for current users and will be factory-installed in new production units going forward. Version 3.0 for TouchMix-8 and -16 includes twenty significant enhancements, making these models far and away the most powerful and comprehensive, yet easy-to-use compact mixers available.

New Features Included
Many features previously available exclusivey on the Series’ flagship TouchMix-30 Pro are now implemented, including Anti-Feedback and Room-Tuning Wizards, Real-Time Analyzer (RTA), Copy-and-Paste, playback of MP3 files on a USB drive, Input Delay, Output PEQ, 15 dB Digital Gain, Channel Overview, USB Drive Formatting and improved graphics and screen layout.

A number of additional, all-new enhancements to the mixer are also provided including Channel Safe, Tap Tempo, Tablet Follows Mixer, additional User Buttons (on connected tablet) and the ability to configure Aux 7/8 and Aux 9/10 as balanced, mono outputs (TouchMix-16). QSC loudspeaker tunings are also present in Version 3.0, including presets for the company’s new K.2 Series.

The TM-16 has 16 mic/line inputs, two stereo inputs and 8 monitor mixes (6 mono, 2 stereo), with enough functionality to satisfy demanding professionals, yet still providing enough features that allows even less-experienced users to get quality sound and flexibility. It offers ample signal management while advanced features such as class-A microphone preamps, Anti-Feedback and Room Tuning Wizards, real-time analyzer (RTA) and direct-to-external-drive recording make it equally competent as both a professional live sound or recording tool.

The TouchMix-16 also comes complete with Wi-Fi dongle and a soft carrying case.

        Holy cow! This is a top of the line product from a tier 1 company! Astonishing pre-amps and an effortless touch screen that give you perfect control over whatever you need!

        16 channels of excellent pre amps, fantastic internal efx engine, and touch screen. QSC is a top of the line company and this is a mixer that blows comparable ios software for Ipads and the like, away.

          This live digital mixer is ideal for the sound-man who needs a lot of versatility in a mixer that is compact enough to fit in a suitcase.16 high quality mic-pres and input channels that include compressors, gates and four-band parametric EQ. A full assortment of sound processing is including reverbs and delays make this a great value for a pro quality mixer.

          I've never seen a full 16 channel mixer with this many features be this small. I mean, this thing is smaller than your laptop, but you can run a full club on it. Technology has really come a long way.

                  The Touch Mix is designed for spaces and venues where you don't know who the live sound engineer will be - with it's dummy-proof design, beyond simplistic controls and effects and the self-teaching manual built into the unit itself, you could plop a 6th grader down behind one of these and get a better sound than you do at most bars!
