Does the EQ on FR4X go to line output?
#1
Recently I purchased a QSC Touchmix 8.

I have found this mixer for the extremely small size (of a laptop) to be quite complex. I think Behringer has similar type at lower cost? Like on the FR4x, EQ is critical aspect to make the accordion sound sweet through powered speakers. I am not truly convinced the Accordion EQ settings go to the line outputs? Have to EQ on the Touchmix.
When I first got the FR4x, all editing was done listening to the internal speakers, not headphones. I am happy with the sound when strolling.
Any techs that may have a service manual showing the power flow chart on the accordion? I would be interested in seeing the EQ section.
One more thing, when I play on stage, I have the accordion internal speakers off. Gives me a better feel of the mixdown.

Hey Larry, I've been looking at the TouchMix 8 and 16 for a while now... I recently missed a deal for a 3-day old demo unit TM16 that was priced $150 lower than the 8... drats.  Smile

I am not sure if the line outs on the 4X go through the outputs, but that is not necessarily a bad thing if it doesn't.  By having you dial in the accordion at the TouchMix to optimize it leaves you the option of being able to optimize the internal speakers and your PA speakers separately giving you more control.

To really find out, do something really drastic with the 4X EQ like super boost the bass and kill everything else.  Do a quick recording of before and after the drastic EQ changes on the TouchMix and compare the recordings and if the drastic EQ changes are heard or not, either way you have an answer.  Smile

I found mine as a demo too. 8 is enough but if a deal on 16 (a larger unit, I think) go for it. I really will test this out. But I hear a difference when through speakers. You are probably right on the EQ. The FR4x manual does state Internal speaker EQ!

    The cool thing about this mixer is records each channel separate. Pre or post EQ. Which pre EQ is a better choice, then you can EQ on DAW each channel...as mentioned a good thing for live video recording...something I will try soon. Recorded some audio on USB shows up on DAW each channel...! Think the 16 or 32 has some additional feature?
