QSC Announces 2.1 Upgrade for TouchMix Mixers

WebsiteArticle_600.jpgCosta Mesa, CA, (May 19, 2015)- QSC is pleased to announce a new firmware upgrade for the TouchMix-8 and TouchMix-16 digital mixers. TouchMix mixers have received critical acclaim for their sound quality, ease of use, and impressive results from experienced professionals and audio novices alike. The 2.1 firmware release retains all the features and performance and includes critical updates that will improve mixer stability while providing significant, powerful new capabilities.

“We are strongly urging every TouchMix user to upgrade to 2.1,” says Vice President, Professional Product Development, Gerry Tschetter. “This release not only offers improved stability but adds a few new features as well including support for MIDI-over-USB footswitches.”
Among the new features, one that will be of special interest around the world, is the new multi-language Info system. The mixer’s built-in Info system and demo screens now include user-selectable options for Chinese (Mandarin), French, German, Russian and Spanish. In addition, 2.1 users will find support for MIDI-over-USB footswitches, more flexible scene recall functions, along with the ability to use auxiliary mixes as sub-groups and improved Wi-Fi connectivity.

“Since the release of TouchMix we’ve received lots of suggestions for additional features and improvements.” states Product Manager, Jon Graves. “The 2.1 release implements the best of these, as well as a few of our own. If you’re still using an earlier firmware version on your mixer, you really owe it to yourself to load up 2.1.”

The new TouchMix 2.1 firmware is compatible with the also newly updated TouchMix iOS App version 2.1. TouchMix iOS App version 2.1 is available for download from the Apple App Store enabling wireless remote control of the TouchMix hardware via iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
Both the TouchMix firmware and iOS app are available at no charge.
