QSC in Costa Mesa, Calif., introduces the TouchMix-30 Pro ($2,359.99 MSRP; $1,899.99 street), a 32-channel digital mixer (24 Mic/Line, 6 Line, Stereo USB, plus 16 outputs) for production professionals, musicians and bands as well as live performance venues.
TouchMix-30 Pro offers a 10-inch multi-touch touchscreen; Anti-Feedback and Room Tuning Wizards for equalization tasks; two real-time analyzers (RTA) for instantaneous analysis of channel tonal balance and room response; touch-and-route patch matrix for easy “multing” and rearrangement of inputs; eight subgroups with 6-band full parametric EQ, variable highpass and lowpass filters, and limiter (may be linked for stereo); 32-channel direct-to-hard drive record/playback; a 32-channel DAW interface that, with Apple computers, allows for bidirectional I/O with selected workstation software; and MP3 playback direct from USB.
Additionally, TouchMix-30 Pro offers 24 Class-A microphone preamps, and more than 120 live instrument, microphone and other audio source presets created in live environments for mix-ready channel settings. All outputs feature 1/3-octave graphic equalization and 6-band parametric EQ plus limiters, delay and 12-band notch filters. Fourteen mono mixes may be paired for stereo while two pairs of Auxes can drive wired in-ear monitors (IEMs) directly. Six stereo effects processors plus pitch-correct offer studio-grade signal enhancements, without sacrificing Auxes or additional channels.
