Announced earlier this year and easily one of the most anticipated compact live consoles with complete iPad control ever, the Mackie DL1608 16-Channel Digital Live Sound Mixer is now shipping. To meet unprecedented demand, Mackie has increased production capabilities and shipments are now leaving their North American manufacturing facility to eager customers worldwide.
“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 redeﬁnes live mixing by combining the proven power of a full-featured digital mixer with the unmatched ease and mobility of iPad. With 16 boutique-quality Onyx mic preamps and the performance of 24-bit Cirrus Logic™ AD/DA converters, the DL1608 delivers unparalleled sound quality. Seamless wired to wireless iPad control allows a user to mixfrom anywhere in the venue, providing the mobile freedom to control not only the mix, but also powerful plug-ins like EQ, dynamics, effects and more. The sleek DL1608 even supports up to 10 iPad devices so musicians can control their own monitor mix on stage.
The Mackie DL1608 16-Channel Digital Live Sound Mixer has a UK list price of $1249.99. Due to the large volume of orders, it may take a few shipments before your local dealer will have it in stock. Contact your local dealer for detailed information regarding availability.
The Mackie Master Fader Control App is available for free from the App Store on iPad.
