Outputs on this unit include Main Left/Right, six mono and two stereo auxiliary mixes. And if that ain't enough there is a headphone out as well as monitor outputs. And to further blow your mind, this mixer makes it incredibly easy to make a multi-track recording as well. All you need is a USB disc drive and you can grab all twenty inputs plus a stereo mix. Mix these tracks on your TouchMix, use them for a "virtual sound check" or import them into your favorite DAW for over-dubs and post-production.

Fast, Professional Results for Everyone
Many TouchMix functions such as EQ, compressors, gates and limiters offer you a choice of Advanced Mode operation that offers total control over all parameters or Simple Mode that provides only the most essential controls. There's also a comprehensive library of Channel Presets. These are not typical, generic, one-size-fits-all settings developed in a recording studio. Experienced, live sound engineers spent months working with musicians, all manner of instruments, popular microphones and pickups and multiple speaker systems to develop a library of settings that are specifically designed for live sound reinforcement. In addition, the onboard Effects Wizard guides you through the selection and assignment of appropriate effects while the Gain Wizard continuously monitors and displays input clipping, allowing you to focus on your performance. The TouchMix also comes with a comprehensive library of complete Mixer Scenes to get you started. User scenes may be stored or recalled from either internal or USB memory and at the user's option, scenes may include or omit main and auxiliary mix levels.
One of the more innovative and user-friendly aspects of the TouchMix-16 is the ability to control the mixer from the touch-screen or by selecting parameters on screen and using the physical controls. For those seeking greater precision, the Master Control knob lets you select course or fine resolution by simply pushing it down (or not) while turning.
The TouchMix comes complete with its own padded carrying case, for transport and protection. Wherever your music takes you, the TouchMix will be there, ready to take the stage to help you achieve the most ideal sound for your audience.
