QSC Premieres New TouchMix-30 Pro Compact Digital Mixer
QSC has today unveiled the new TouchMix-30 Pro, a 32-channel model expanding its innovative digital mixer line. Perfect for mobile DJs who also offer audio production services or live sound mixing, the TouchMix-30 Pro sets a new standard for performance in a compact digital mixer.
With 32 mixing channels (24 Mic/Line, 6 Line & Stereo USB) and 16 outputs, the TouchMix-30 Pro offers tremendous signal management flexibility for a wide range of applications. It also offers features and functionality that will satisfy the most demanding professional, while also providing an intuitive workflow that delivers great results, quickly and easily, to users at every level of experience.
Beyond offering a higher channel count than its predecessors, a host of additional, new ‘Pro’ features set the TouchMix-30 Pro apart from its smaller TouchMix Series siblings. These include a larger (10-inch) multi-touch touchscreen, offering more on-screen information while also providing greater hands-on control, as well as two new wizards - Anti-Feedback and Room Tuning – that simplify complex equalization tasks.
Two real-time analyzers (RTA) provide instantaneous analysis of channel tonal balance and room response, while a Touch-and-route Patch Matrix makes for easy ‘multing’ and rearrangement of inputs. The new mixer also allows for 32-channel direct-to-hard-drive recording and playback, allowing the capture and recall of performances without the need for an external computer. It can also act as a 32-Channel DAW interface with Apple computers, allowing for bidirectional I/O when connected with popular workstation software.
Additionally, the TouchMix-30 Pro offers all of the features that have proved popular with users of the existing TouchMix Series mixers. These include class-A microphone preamps that deliver pristine, studio-quality audio and over 120 live instrument, microphone and other audio source presets created in live environments that provide mix-ready channel settings. What’s more, all outputs feature 1/3 octave graphic equalization and 6-band parametric EQ, plus limiters, delay and 12-band notch filters.
The TouchMix-30 Pro also offers 14 mono mixes that can be paired for stereo, while two pairs of Auxes can drive wired in-ear monitors (IEM) directly. Meanwhile, six stereo effects processors, plus pitch-correct, offer studio-grade signal enhancements, without sacrificing Auxes or additional channels.
“The TouchMix-30 Pro builds on the stellar reputation of its predecessors, offering more of the results-oriented capabilities that set the TouchMix Series apart from other mixer alternatives adding new, advanced capabilities typically found in products at a far higher price,” says QSC Professional Director of Marketing, Ray van Straten. “Customer response from our extensive global field-testing and as measured by pre-release orders has been incredible. Clearly, this is the right product at the right time for the market and we’re quite confident that the TouchMix-30 Pro will exceed customer expectations in every way.”
The TouchMix-30 Pro is available immediately with a UK street price around £1,699.00.
