Announced at NAMM, the Mackie DL1608 16-Channel Digital Live Sound Mixer is now shipping.
The firm says it has increased production capabilities and shipments are now leaving its North American manufacturing facility.
“We are extremely excited to get the DL1608 into the hands of musicians and engineers,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie product manager. “We’ve been addressing customer interest with a series of video podcasts that go over all the cool features. Plus, the Master Fader Control App has been fully updated with great new features that weren’t available in the preview version.”
The Mackie DL1608 combines the power of a full-featured digital mixer with the unmatched ease and mobility of iPad. Wired to wireless iPad control allows a user to mix from anywhere in the venue, controlling not only the mix, but also powerful plug-ins like EQ, dynamics, effects and more. It can also support up to 10 iPad devices so musicians can control their own monitor mix on stage.
The mixer is expected to cost around £1,260 inc vat in the UK.
