QSC has announced a new 2.1 firmware upgrade for its TouchMix-8 and TouchMix-16 digital mixers that retains all of the previous features and performance while providing updates that improve mixer stability and add new capabilities.
“We are strongly urging every TouchMix user to upgrade to 2.1,” says Gerry Tschetter, vice president, professional product development at QSC. “This release not only offers improved stability but adds a few new features as well including support for MIDI-over-USB footswitches.”
A new feature of special interest around the world is the a 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,” notes 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, available for download here, is compatible with the newly updated TouchMix iOS App version 2.1, which is available for download here from the Apple App Store. It provides wireless remote control of the TouchMix hardware via iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch.
