QSC TouchMix-16 - Touch-Screen Digital Audio Mixer
The QSC TouchMix-8 is a compact digital mixer with a 6.1" × 3.5" touchscreen. There are 20 inputs with 16 built-in mic preamplifiers which can be controlled by its integrated touchscreen or wirelessly via an iPad connected to the same wireless network. The mixer features a DSP-based 4-band parametric EQ with variable high- and low-pass filters, a gate, and compressor on each input channel. The TouchMix-8's DSP also provides reverb, echo, delay, and chorus effects in addition to assignable pitch correction.
The mixer is also capable of multi-track recording with sampling frequencies up to 48kHz to an optional external USB hard drive. A USB Wi-Fi adapter and carrying case are included.
