QSC TouchMix-16 Compact Digital Mixer with Bag
The QSC TouchMix 16 digital mixer is only the size and weight of a small laptop computer, but that doesn’t mean that this piece of gear can’t compete with some of its bigger brothers. Its portability is definitely a big selling point, so much so that the unit also comes with a padded carrying case as if to drive the point home that this truly is the best tool for mixing on the go. But the actual mechanics of this mixer are really where it shines.
The unit features a Simple Mode which operates in a way that is not unlike the Auto function on a DSLR camera, going with quick and generalized settings to get you on your feet and moving instantly. The Advanced Mode relinquishes all control to the user and gives them the ability to truly tweak the sound to their liking. And there’s plenty of tweaking to do, thanks in no small part to four stereo DSPs containing a full selection of professional digital effects, a gate and compressor on all input channels, and a 1/3 octave graphic EQ, amongst other cool amenities.
