Comparing the Default Drum Scene in QSC Touchmix

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: Apple Podcasts | Android | RSSThe QSC TouchMix 16 is a powerful mixer for bands, conferencing and more. When I saw the mixer at NAMM, I was definitely impressed. And looking for a good replacement to my mixer of 8 years, I found it in this product. I wanted to see how easy this was to set up and go. Therefore, I miced up my drums in the basement and plugged the QSC Touchmix in. The only thing I did was set levels to each drum. By plugging in a USB drive, I could record tracks easily.
