new QSC digital mixer @ NAMM 2011!
« on: November 15, 2010, 12:24:45 pm »

Hi there,
have anyone hear about a new digital mixing desk from QSC?
Is this just a buzz? Anyone know more information about it?
Some people talked me about a small size mixer in a very very cheap range price.
Listen, the tecnology probably issue from a QSC Matrix called Q-Sys system, the most powerful matrix gear now in the marketplace, finally this mixer have a lot of chancee to be a real competitive.

Bye
Aldo

I'd have much preferred them release a DSP amplifier, but apparently the legendary amplifier manufacturer really doesn't care about amps anymore. Rolling Eyes

Ahahah, that's true!
First they try to come in a loudspeaker bizz and now they launch a digital mixer.
So, the good news is the price...perhaps very very challenging.

Ops, just to get it light I'm not form QSC company...Wink

If anyone knew anything solid about it they probably couldn't talk about it.

I'm sure QSC is still worried about amplifiers but A) they already have a healthy market share in conventional amps, and B) they needed to protect their flanks from amplifier business lost to powered speakers. What better way to do that than be the one selling powered speakers?

The move into digital consoles is less obvious to me... perhaps just opportunistic, where some guys with a design(?) and some name recognition(?) needed a deep pockets partner with distribution.  The digital console business has been difficult to master since it began, and it will not be any easier now. (I am still predicting that mixers will become obsolete with all electronics integrated into powered speakers using wireless microphones that will communicate directly onto a digital network... but probably not in my lifetime.)

EDIT/ this may also be a way to acquire access to more DSP technology, and position themselves for a future when systems are more integrated. Not just a collection of best of breed parts thrown together. /edit

This was reported a couple of months ago;
a co-development with Greg Mackie & Peter Watts (both ex-Mackie, but Greg is actually still Mackie   Rolling Eyes ).

QSC Audio Products has announced a co-development partnership with M&W Pro Audio to create a series of digital audio mixing consoles.

Greg Mackie and Peter Watts are, respectively, the M and the W in the organizations’ name..

Here's the PSW link:

I'm sure that Mark Levinson would agree with that

I actually attended his bankruptcy auction, and bought one of his Sound technology distortion analyzers, but somebody ended up buying the whole corporate remains intact with a single higher bid than the entire auction raised.

I got a clue that it was a bad idea to name my company Roberts after seeing an old Roberts tape recorder and thinking ew... The music industry is full of examples of people losing control of their own name.  Often they don't leave the industry, or make the same mistake twice, (mainly because they can't).  Rolling Eyes  I won't bother to list examples.

PS: That said I've been known to nickname stuff Johnny____, like my world famous Johnny Beer.
