You'll get your music sounding right quickly and easily with QSC's TouchMix-8 8-channel digital mixer. This compact and intuitive audio workstation features a bright touchscreen control surface that displays all the knobs, sliders, and meters you'll need to dial in perfect sound for your band, club, or house of worship. Every input channel has access to a 4-band parametric equalizer, high- and low-cut filters, a noise gate, and a compressor all brought instantly onscreen with the touch of a finger. You can view most functions and effects in Advanced Mode for total parameter control, or in Simple Mode for easier operation with fewer control options.
The TouchMix-8 features eight XLR microphone inputs, four of which can also be used as 1/4" line inputs, and two stereo pair TRS 1/4" line inputs for a grand total of twelve inputs. In addition to the main left and right outputs, you'll find four XLR balanced auxiliary outs that can be used for different monitor mixes or for recording.
You can use up to four effects at the same time, choosing from six available types of effects including reverb, delay, and chorusing. You can even sweeten up a vocal track with a pitch-correction processor that you can assign to any input channel. The main and auxiliary outputs each have access to a 28-band 1/3 octave graphic equalizer, a dynamic limiter, 4 notch filters (that'll help eliminate feedback), and variable low- and high-cut filters, so you'll have complete control over the sound as it goes out to the speakers.
QSC hired experienced concert sound engineers to creats over 100 presets specifically custom-tailored for different instruments and venue types. In addition, you can save all the mixer's settings to a “scene” for recalling that perfect mix for your next appearance at the venue. Gain and FX Wizards help you set up your mixes for the best and most consistent sound quality. The Anti-Feedback Wizard, Room-Tuning Wizard, and real-time analyzer (RTA) all help you set the equalization correctly. You can copy and paste settings from one control to another for faster setups.
The TouchMix-8 comes with a padded carrying case
You can form up to eight DCA (digitally-controlled attenuator) Groups, so you can control a handful of channels with one fader. You can also create up to eight Mute Groups, so you can turn off groups of microphones when they're not needed.
You plug the included Wi-Fi adapter into one of the TouchMix-8's USB ports to create your own wireless network. Download QSC's iOS TouchMix App to your iPad and you can control your TouchMix-8 wirelessly from virtually any position in the room. You can use the second USB port for digital recording and playback.
You can record up to 14 tracks simultaneously from the TouchMix-8 to an external hard drive. (See the Digital Connections Highlights below for requirements.) You can also play your recordings back and mix them to 2-track stereo, and record that on your hard drive as well. The TouchMix-8 gives you a choice of sampling rates for your recordings — 44.1 KHz, recommended for CD-quality recordings, and 48 KHz, for video projects.

Perfect sound quality..!
I travel and present to large groups. This year I rented the TouchMix-16 for several events. After seeing how easy it is to use and hearing quality sound plus wizard support for common sound issues I bought the TouchMix-8. Actually I bought 2 as my department has several groups that travel. The TouchMix boards are definitely reliable easy to use quality products.
