QSC has introduced Version 3.0 firmware for the TouchMix-8 and TouchMix-16 consoles and Version 1.2 for the TouchMix-30 Pro – available as a free download for current users and installed in new production units going forward.
Version 3.0 for TouchMix-8 and -16 includes 20 significant enhancements. Many features previously available exclusively on the flagship TouchMix-30 Pro are now available, including Anti-Feedback and Room-Tuning Wizards, Real-Time Analyzer (RTA), Copy-and-Paste, playback of MP3 files on a USB drive, Input Delay, Output PEQ, 15 dB Digital Gain, Channel Overview, USB Drive Formatting and improved graphics and screen layout.
A number of additional, all-new improvements to the mixers have also been implemented, including Channel Safe, Tap Tempo, Tablet Follows Mixer, additional User Buttons (on connected tablet) and the ability to configure Aux 7/8 and Aux 9/10 as balanced, mono outputs (TouchMix-16). QSC loudspeaker tunings are also present in Version 3.0, including presets for the company’s new K.2 Series.
To ensure that customers maintain the most current operating system for their mixers, Version 3.0 also comes with a system check, offering direct download of updates when the mixer is connected to the internet.
Advancing the capabilities of the TouchMix-30 Pro, Version 1.2 delivers the all-new features found in the smaller channel-count models along with a number of additional system and operation enhancements.
“The TouchMix Series, from the beginning, was uniquely designed to deliver great results for its users, whether novice or professional – and we delivered on that promise,” stated Ray van Straten, senior director of marketing for QSC Professional. “With these new enhancements, particularly with Version 3.0, any user can now enjoy the features and capabilities of the world’s largest and most-esteemed consoles in a package that’s right-sized for their own application. It’s an amazing time to be in the market for a new mixer!”
