The TouchMix Series offers musicians, production professionals and live
performance venues the power and capability of a large format console in a
highly portable, fully integrated, affordable and easy to use product.
Just as digital cameras offer advanced features to meet the needs of highly
skilled professional photographers with “point and shoot” features to assist
novice users in achieving optimum results, the TouchMix-8 (12 input
channels) and TouchMix-16 (20 input channels) provide the user a choice
of Advanced Mode operation that offers total control over all parameters or
Simple Mode that provides only the most essential controls.
“Big Mixer” Features and Specifications
TouchMix Series “no asterisk” specifications include 4-band, fully parametric
EQ with both variable hi-and lo-pass filters, as well as comprehensive dynamics
processing on each input channel. Four mix busses feed four internal,
professional, digital effects processors. Comprehensive dynamics, graphic EQ,
hi- pass, lo-pass and notch filters and delay are available on both the main and
aux outputs and there are 8 DCA groups with mutes as well as 8 mute groups.

TouchMix-8
With four (TouchMix-8) or ten (TouchMix-16) auxiliary output channels,
TouchMix also has ample stage monitor mixing capability. Both models have
the ability to drive multiple, wired stereo in-ear monitors directly.
Fast, Professional Results
TouchMix features a comprehensive library of Channel Presets,
created specifically for the unique requirements of live sound reinforcement.
Designed by veteran live sound engineers utilizing all types of instruments,
popular microphones and pickups as well as multiple types of speakers
systems, these presets help the user achieve great results quickly. The
mixers’ onboard Effects Wizard guides the user through the selection and
assignment of appropriate effects while the Gain Wizard continuously
monitors and displays input clipping. TouchMix also comes with a
comprehensive library of complete Mixer Scenes, and all user parameters of
any mix can be saved, both internally and via USB drive.
Compact and Complete
The TouchMix Series models are completely self-contained and require no
external PC or video display. The graphic, color touch-screen provides access
to all mix parameters along with a physical rotary encoder and hardware
buttons. The available Remote Control App for iOS devices controls all mixer
parameters and the included USB Wi-Fi adapter creates the network
connection between the mixer and the hand-held device. No external
network hardware is required. The mixer is also capable of direct recording to
an external USB hard drive in 32-bit broadcast wave format. Tracks can be
played back on the mixer or imported into most DAW software for over-dubs
and post-production. TouchMix Models also come complete with their own
padded carrying case, for transport and protection.

ISA amplifiers are an ideal, cost-effective solution for fixed installation
applications requiring distributed loudspeakers. There are seven models in
the line, four low impedance models (ISA 280, ISA 450, ISA 750, ISA 1350)
rated down to 2-ohm loads and three “Ti” versions (ISA 300Ti, ISA 500Ti,
ISA 800Ti) featuring isolated transformers for 25, 70 and 100 volt
distributed audio systems. The DataPort V2 Lite connection facilitates the
use of amplifier accessories (XC-3, LF-3 and SF-3.) providing economical
crossover and subwoofer filtering solutions.
•Up to 2400W total output power.
•3RU chassis with rear-mounted gain controls featuring
2 dB detents.
•Independent, defeatable clip limiters reduce distortion
and protect speakers.
•Selectable high-pass filters protect against transformer
saturation and driver overexcursion.
•Includes extensive DC, infrasonic, thermal overload,
and short circuit protection.
•XLR and 3-pin Block input connectors and touch-proof
barrier-strip outputs.
•DataPort V2 connector not compatible with Q-Sys,
BASIS or CM16a.

DSP-3 | DSP-4 | DSP-30
The DSP-3 and DSP-4 are compact, 2-channel signal processing modules
that can plug into the back of most DataPort-equipped QSC amps,
conserving rack space and simplifying interconnections. Featuring 24-bit/48
kHz A/D converters, balanced inputs, and presets, these powerful little
workhorses can also be mounted into a DPX-4 remote rack mounting
bracket for use as a standalone, rack-mounted processing unit.
•Crossover filters: Bessel, Butterworth, Linkwitz-Riley.
•Compressors and limiters.
•Multiple parametric EQs.
•Precision attenuation (0.1 dB steps).
•High and low-shelf filters.
•Mix post-crossover audio (2-to-1 mixer).
•Multiple delays (up to 910 ms).
•Variable-frequency tone generator.
•Pink and white noise generators.
•Signal mute, splitter, and polarity reversal.

XC-3 2-way Crossover | SF-3 Subwoofer Filter |
LF-3 Low-Frequency Filter
The XC-3 is an active, 2-way crossover module
that mounts to the rear panel DataPort of select
2-channel QSC amps (DCA,PL2, PL3, CX, ISA). A
3-way crossover can be implemented using the
XC-3’s low-frequency high-pass filter with the LF-3.
•4th order Linkwitz-Riley filters (24 dB/octave),
low frequencies routed to channel 1 and highs to channel 2.
•All-pass filter delay for time alignment of low- and high-frequency drivers
•Trim control (0-20 dB attenuation) to balance the frequency bands.
•High-frequency channel offers boosts up to 10 dB for equalizing constantdirectivity horns.
The SF-3 provides subwoofer signal processing
without the need for a conventional crossover.
To conserve cost and rack space, the unit mounts
to the rear panel DataPort of select 2-channel QSC
amps (DCA, PL2, PL3, CX, ISA).
•4th order Linkwitz-Riley low-pass filter may be set to 80, 150 or 250 Hz.
•Subsonic filter offers roll-off frequencies in the range 20-50 Hz to prevent
driver over-excursion.
•Trim control (0-20 dB of attenuation) allows balancing the various
frequency bands.
Amplifiers
The LF-3 low-frequency filter, when used with the XC-3
2-way crossover, creates a 3-way active crossover
system. Mounting to the rear panel of select, 2-channel
QSC amps (DCA, PL2, PL3, CX, ISA), the LF-3 is
comprised of two discrete channels with 4th order
Linkwitz-Riley low-pass filters (24 dB/octave slope).
•Delay on each channel for loudspeaker time-alignment
•Trim control (0-20 dB of attenuation) to match levels.
•One amp-mounted LF-3 can support up to three amplifiers (including in
stereo) with XC-3 installed accessories

The World’s Most Powerful Network Audio Solution
Core 1000 / 3000 / 4000
Q-Sys is the world’s most powerful yet simple network audio solution
available... period. With the bandwidth to handle even the most complex
configurations, Q-Sys is ready for any job, from boardrooms and clubs to
airports and stadiums.
Built from the ground up on a powerful, open, IT-friendly foundation, the
Q-Sys platform transcends the limitations in scope, performance, and
usability that keep other network audio control systems from reaching their
full potential.
Enterprise Cores
The Q-Sys Core is at the heart of the Q-Sys system and runs QSC-developed
DSP algorithms under a customized Linux operating system running on Intel®
microprocessors and motherboards. This Intel hardware already meets
industry-best reliability standards and is used in many of the world’s most
mission-critical projects.
There are five Q-Sys Core models tailored to the meet the varying
requirements of different facilities. For large scale installations, the Core 1000
(supports 128 flex channels), Core 3000 (supports 128 x128 channels) and
Core 4000 (supports 512 x 512 channels) are designed to work with one or
more remote I/O Frames.
Digital | Network
77
Core 250i / 500i
Integrated Cores
The Core 250i/500i Integrated Cores bring the power of the larger Q-Sys
Cores to applications requiring lower channel count. Integrated Cores can
accommodate up to eight internal Q-Sys input and/or output cards for a total
onboard channel capacity of 32 channels (more if AES or CobraNet™ cards
are used). Channel count may be further expanded by the addition of Q-Sys
I/O Frames and other peripheral devices.
•Layer 3 networking ensures Q-Sys can run on the backbone of existing IT
infrastructure eliminating the need for a dedicated audio network.
•Simple flexible architecture — Centralized processing allows the routing of
any input to any output without variable-latency signal paths.
•Hardware-independent processing — advances in processing power are
driven by advances in the global IT industry.
•Fewer potential failure points — digitally wired and routed signal paths
within the processing Core maximizes system reliability and minimizes the
number of required interconnections.
•System redundancy — all Cores can serve as a backup and upon sensing
failure of the primary Core immediately assume all system functions
ensuring fail-safe redundancy dependability for mission-critical applications.
