QSC TouchMix-16 Compact Digital Mixer

The QSC TouchMix Series offers musicians, production professionals and live performance venues the power and capability of a large format console in a highly portable, fully integrated, affordable and easy to use product.

Just as digital cameras offer advanced features to meet the needs of highly skilled professional photographers with "point and shoot" features to assist novice users in achieving optimum results, the TouchMix-16 (20 input channels) provides the user a choice of Advanced Mode operation that offers total control over all parameters or Simple Mode that provides only the most essential controls.

See what our Battle of the Bands winners Creature Camp were able to do with the TouchMix:


"Big Mixer"

TouchMix Series "no asterisk" specifications include 4-band, fully parametric EQ with both variable hi-and lo-pass filters, as well as comprehensive dynamics processing on each input channel. Four mix busses feed four internal, professional, digital effects processors. Comprehensive dynamics, graphic EQ, hi- pass, lo-pass and notch filters and delay are available on both the main and aux outputs and there are 8 DCA groups with mutes as well as 8 mute groups. With four (TouchMix-8) or ten (TouchMix-16) auxiliary output channels, TouchMix also has ample stage monitor mixing capability. Both models have the ability to drive multiple, wired stereo in-ear monitors directly.

Fast, Professional Results

TouchMix features a comprehensive library of Channel Presets, created specifically for the unique requirements of live sound reinforcement. Designed by veteran live sound engineers utilizing all types of instruments, popular microphones and pickups as well as multiple types of speakers systems, these presets help the user achieve great results quickly. The mixers' onboard Effects Wizard guides the user through the selection and assignment of appropriate effects while the Gain Wizard continuously monitors and displays input clipping. TouchMix also comes with a comprehensive library of complete Mixer Scenes, and all user parameters of any mix can be saved, both internally and via USB drive.

QSC's Product Manager discusses how the TouchMix's presets let you easily dial in quality sound:


Compact and Complete

The TouchMix Series models are completely self-contained and require no external PC or video display. The graphic, color touch-screen provides access to all mix parameters along with a physical rotary encoder and hardware buttons. The available Remote Control App for iOS devices controls all mixer parameters and the included USB Wi-Fi adapter creates the network connection between the mixer and the hand-held device. No external network hardware is required. The mixer is also capable of direct recording to an external USB hard drive in 32-bit broadcast wave format. Tracks can be played back on the mixer or imported into most DAW software for over-dubs and post-production. TouchMix Models also come complete with their own padded carrying case, for transport and protection.

zZounds Expert Review
The zZounds crew was lucky enough to get our hands on one of the first production models of QSC's TouchMix-16 touchscreen digital mixer. One gigging guitarist explained how his band was beta-testing this bad boy: "We put the TouchMix-16 on stage with us and plug in all our mics and instruments. Then, we recall a scene we saved with all our dynamics and effects dialed in, so the TouchMix can feed our 5 pairs of in-ear monitors. After that, we just run the TouchMix's main outs to the front-of-house PA, and hand an iPad to the sound engineer so he can remote-control the mix from the house. It sounds great, and everyone's happy." Not bad for a mixer that's about the size of a laptop!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (19 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Are you Experienced? You don't need to be! QSC makes it EASY!"
Overall: To start, I have some working knowledge of a mixer and how this relates to getting and overall sound, some. I studied this mixer for a few months prior to purchase, Mostly QSC directed and released YouTube videos. This is what really helped me to understand how to mix and setup for sound in any venue. Setup: Easy turn it on and wait for it to initialize. Go to the INFO button just north of the jog wheel. This is your On-Device manual; it will walk you through and or explain all about every facet of the mixer and its capabilities. Versatility: Are you kidding? This could be the Swiss army knife of stage and studio mixers/recorders (yes it records too) you can assign any track up to four FX settings. If you are a singer, your vocals can be sent to every monitor, and or just the one that you are using. It is actually so crazy easy to use once you understand the basics. Every input can be configured for the overall amount of Gain\Volume to the MAINS, FX added, and where the actual input can be sent to the AUX outputs. There are basic and advanced controls. If you are a tweaker you can spend hours drilling down and refining or defining a "scene" or setup for any Venue you may play, and save these settings to recall later. To save you time QSC has literally done hundreds of presets for you that will abbreviate the FX setup and overall sound for each input. For example you can select from the effects a preset for Vocals - Male - Live and this preset will give you FX settings that have been optimized to sound great. Once you recall (bring up the preset) you can tweak if to your ears. Once you get this down subsequent inputs are faster. Features: Too many to mention, I would suggest looking at the QSC YouTube videos for a little briefing and detail as to what this can don and the best way to the task you want. I would say the favorite for me was recalling the vocal presets, they have allowed me to have a good sound without feedback. It is not 100% but with good speaker placement and some knowledge about how feedback occurs you can really make it a thing of the past. My singer loves this! IPHONE and IPAD integration make this even easier to use. The unit has a WIFI dongle that gives this it is own WIFI to be used to link your phone or pad to the unit to allow you the option of actually moving to each Speaker, Mains or monitor, microphone and or instrument that you want to setup in your Mains or AUX. You do not have to ask anyone to do a MIC check, you can just walk up and check it....adjust to your ear and move on. The IPAD will allow you full control to the mixer as if you were standing in front of it. If you have a high speed USB HARD Drive (SSD) you can record all inputs at one time if you like and import the data to any software. There are multiple wizards to assist you and don't forget you always have your product guide and complete manual with you at all times. I could just go on and on. Ease of Use: Like I said, I have a limited understanding of sound and sound engineering. this closes the gap and allows me to have a consistent sound every time we go out. I can say this, it just took a few attempts to learn my way around it, and the layout is very intuitive. To be able to get to any setting so easily is amazing. I cannot say enough about this. It comes with a nice case too! They literally thought of everything. Go here for QSC reference Videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=02BgtqrNb_c&feature=player_embedded CJWII

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great right out of the box"
Sound: Very clear the microphone pre amps are transparent. The recording quality is also very clear. Feature: The I pad app is the best of any on the market. Navigation of the mixer is intuitive and is without excessive layers. Recording is easy and is straight ahead. Great sound quality Ease of Use: One of the easiest mixers I have ever worked with out of the box. If your afraid to go digital don't hesitate its the bomb. The online tutorials, videos and the instructions built into the mixer make the process seamless Quality: Sturdy build quality and it comes in its own case. Value: Great price for a great mixer. Manufacturer Support: We own lots of QSC equipment they are exceptional about being available for our questions. The Wow Factor: Its as close to a ten as possible. Its the Salma Hayak of mixers Overall: On the strength of our past experience with QSC we purchased two of these mixers. I pulled the first one out of the box and mixed a live show. All I can say is wow. It took me a couple of minutes to get the mixer to tether to the I pad (my fault) but after I did I was impressed We own a sound company www.thesoundmanonline.com so we mix on a lot of different formats. This is now my go to mixer.
Style of Music: we mix and play everything we dj announce all different types of events

What Our Customers Are Saying About zZounds "zZounds.com is a music store for musicians run by musicians who understand the needs of the working player or the hobbyist. zZounds carries most of the products that larger, more well-known online stores carry. And if they don't carry it, they have often gone the extra mile by trying to find an item for me from another source. They are honest and helpful when I need help, and I received credit from them that other music stores would not grant me." - customer on December 22
