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.

Best bang for the buck!


I've owned the TM8 for 5 years and love it. Bought a TM16 to have more channels... still kept the TM8! ;)



Great mixer so far


TouchMix 16 has a great pricepoint and has lots of features. Great value and quality.

This is actually my second one! I love this mixer.


I use this mixer 1 to 5 times a week. It is a reliable workhorse. I purchased a second one as a back-up and also for use during my band practices. It is light and easy to transport. It comes with a well padded travel bag so stays safe. My other one is rack mounted in a case.

This is such an amazing piece of equipment!


1st use is always on performances but recording is also a use. My only thing for improvement would be FX control available on my tablet which I can live with easily. Love this thing!!

Touchmix 16 is the best mixer EVER!!


I had very little pro audio knowledge when I started working with this mixer. I was terrified of using it at the first gig. QSC has created such an easy to use mixer, after watching the tutorial videos a couple times, we hit the ground running. We sound better than ever, and I've learned so much about FOH sound than I ever thought possible, thanks to this little gem! Do yourself a favor!

QSC did a killer job of creating an easy to use, compact, and intuitive mixer. The controls are extremely easy to use and respond gradually like any good mixer does. if your looking for a great mixer that is portable and that anyone can use then this is the mixer for you.

Nice touch!


Nice accurate controls. Compact, and has a nice sound. Great for someone who needs a good quality mixer but is limited for space. Good for studio or live sound. This is a real hands-on product review from Brooks @ Sam Ash Indianapolis.

BEST of the Best


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! Despite it's vast array of uses and it's precise 16-channel preamps, it is incredibly easy to use for professional or amateur recording or mixing! This is a real hands-on review from Kris @ Sam Ash Cincinnati

Cutting edge tech


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 is a real hands-on product review from Z @ Sam Ash Torrance."
