    Absolutely Everything I Wanted
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I spent about a year researching digital mixers. I started with the TouchMix 16, and ended with it. I almost went with several other options but the TouchMix 16 had a built-in touch screen, which saved me money on an external monitor (ie. Ipad or other). Built-in WiFi, touchscreen, and every effect I'll ever need made this unit exactly what I needed. I play in an acoustic duo so I don't need too many channels, but with AMS' easy payment, I bought the 16 just in case I need to mic a full band in the future.

    Easy Peezy (sorta)
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Okay, I'm definitely not an audiophile. But...I know I wanted the best and QSC has the best products on the market, imo. I wanted a mixer that was just as capable of firing up my whole band as it was simple for me to plug and play my solo and duo gigs. Sure 'nuff does! I wasn't very acclimated to analog mixers, so a few people thought I was cray-cray for making a substantial purchase into the digital world. Well, I'm definitely happy that I went digital and will argue my case as often as necessary. With the built-in instruction manual and the pure ease of features such as the "Simple" mode and the wide variety of built in effects, this mixer had me sounding like I'd been using it for years...by the 3rd time I used it (might've had something to do with the kick-ass K10's I bought too). I was on the fence about purchasing the Bose thing, but I've never been "wowed" by it when I hear it and I wanted a system with balls that a good sized audience could feel in their bones. That it does!

    Smart and Practical Mixer!
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Truly a versatile mixer, the smart comes from the fact that you can program "scenes" into the mixer memory that save your exact labels and settings for each channel perfectly. This application is truly a life-saver when gigging with different acts or at different venues. Say for example you play several large rooms that require less reverb and one really small one that you need to drench the channels to give it some depth. Well, the TouchMix16 (or 8) has the ability to save your settings for each room and label it so you can recall each scene every time you go back to the venue. I also love it because I play in an acoustic duo and a 3 piece band. The labels are all different as are the instruments, so when I recall a scene, it brings back all the according labels and settings. This is a HUGE improvement over older mixers. FX can be programmed individually to each channel so if you want delay on vocals, DONE, reverb on guitar, DONE, compressor on drums, DONE.

    Excellent couldn't be happier
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I did a lot of review about this before buying it. I was a lil skeptical, it is truly packed with a ton of features. It does phase and delay also which was something I didnt know it could do. I used it for the first time with my processor. Now I don't even bring my processors with me lol absolutely love it.

    "Well worth the money"
    What is your opinion of this product?
    This is a great product! A very affordable option to enter the world of digital mixing. You can't get 16 channels of analog mixing with 8 aux, all with separate compression, EQ and effects for $1300, let along 16 channels of digital with dynamics for that price. I'm also extremely impressed by the quality of the sound. I can go pretty loud, much louder than I ever could with my analog rig, without feedback or distortion. The sound remains crisp and clear. Being able to have different settings of EQ, compression and effect in every channel and aux without needing separate processors for each channel is priceless. The one thing I'm not impressed by is the reach and quality of the wireless dongle. I can't get more than 15 ft before the connection to my iPad starts going on and off and beyond 25 ft I can't even connect anymore. Something has to be done about that.

    Touchscreen UI could use a little refinement.
    What is your opinion of this product?
    Very nice first attempt a touchscreen mixer by QSC. I can see a few refinements that could be made. Tabs and functions that could be made a bit more obvious with a few changes to the graphics on the screen. The output calibration presets are decidedly geared toward QSC powered speakers and that's understandable but a f"lat" or generic speaker preset would have been nice. I like the sound of this mixer. It sounds very open and less pinched sounding than say a Mackie or Behringer mixer. I know that Greg Mackie was involved in this mixer's design but it doesn't sound like a Mackie product to me. Not quite as "Grab And Go" as an analog mixer but that's to be expected with a mixer like this and I'm sure that a few firmware updates down the road and it'll be even better.
