Mackie DL Series Digital Mixers

Mackie DL Series Digital Live Mixers

Mackie DL Series

digital live mixers are totally controlled by iPad. Much more than just regular docking stations, there is an entire digital mixer within the chassis of these bad boys. You get 16 inputs and 6 outputs on the DL1608 (or 8 in and 4 out on the DL806), and the iPad becomes the control surface. It's easy to adjust the levels on each input, EQ and more, just as you would on a regular mixer. Accessing compression, delay, limiting and more is as easy as a swipe of a finger.

Here's the coolest thing about the DL mixers: all of the processing is inside the mixer - so you get beautiful Mackie Onyx Preamps, aux outputs, etc. - but you can slide out the iPad and still operate the mixer wirelessly! You can also run up to 10 iPads on the system, so each musician can independently choose their own mix via an onstage wireless monitor mix system. Nobody else has a system like this, and the price point is incredible!

Mackie DL1608

Mackie DL1608 Digital Mixer for iPad

iPad-based digital mixer with 16 Onyx preamps, 24-bit AD/DA converters

Completely controlled by an iPad, the Mackie DL1608 is an unprecedented step forward in digital mixing. The DL1608 is seamlessly integrated with Apple's iPad - no computer required. Its hardware provides complete DSP processing and effects, all controlled by the Master Fader iPad app. Mixing is now a completely wireless affair. The DL1608 can support up to 10 wireless iPad connections at once. Imagine being able to set up the mix from the FOH position, then tweak the sound either on stage or from the back of the room. The DL1608 features 16 pristine Onyx preamps combined with the digital clarity of 24-bit AD/DA converters. Additionally, the DL1608 lets you record your mix directly onto your iPad from the L/R stereo outputs (when the iPad is in the DL1608's dock). With this intuitive combination of iPad control and powerful digital mixer, the Mackie DL1608 is a no-brainer.

The Mackie DL1608 Digital Mixer at a Glance:

  • Take advantage of the highly intuitive graphic interface of the iPad - no computer needed!
  • Wired or wireless, it's your choice
  • Take control with the Master Fader app
  • Record your mix directly to your iPad with high-quality 24-bit conversion

Highly intuitive graphic interface advantage
Unlike other digital mixers that offer iPad control, the DL1608 is in another class all together. The iPad is the control surface of the mixer, and the hardware portion is the "brain." Therefore, the DL1608 can handle all the inputs/outputs, DSP, and effects with no computer needed! This gives you, the user, smart and intuitive control.

Wired or wireless, it's your choice
The Mackie DL1608 supports up to 10 wireless iPad connections at once. That's right - 10 different iPads can control the DL1608's parameters at once! This is great for when performers want to adjust their monitors right from the stage. Additionally, the iPad can simply be set right into the DL1608's dock; and when taken out, it will automatically adjust accordingly.

Master Fader app
Designed specifically for the iPad, the DL1608's Master Fader app brings groundbreaking DAW mixing features and functionality to the live environment. With this breakthrough app, you can create mix snapshots, preset channels, and even record stereo tracks straight to your iPad. Plus, "Grow and Glow" gives you a visual indication of the function you're controlling. You can be confident that you're always in control.

Record your mix directly to your iPad
The Mackie DL1608 lets you record your mix from the L/R stereo outputs directly to your iPad, so you can upload it to your favorite application and share it with others. The high-end 24bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters offer a remarkable 114 db of dynamic range and impeccable digital clarity.

Mackie DL32R iPad-based Digital Mixer with 32 ONYX+ preamps, 14 fully-assignable XLR outputs

Complete control from your IPad. No set FOH position-mix from anywhere. Personal monitor mixing via IPad, IPhone, or IPod touch

The Mackie DL32R delivers 32-channels of powerful digital mixing that's completely controlled wirelessly from your iPad, freeing you to get in the mix like never before. With the Mackie DL32R, every control is iPad accessible so there is no need to even touch the hardware. This means you can tuck the DL32R back behind your stage, in a wiring room, or anywhere you have 3 rack units of space-- as long as WiFi can reach your engineer's iPad. The industry-proven Master Fader control app delivers extremely intuitive control over everything, including the ability to recall each and every setting for incredibly fast setup.

The DL32R comes equipped with 32 ONYX+ recallable microphone preamps. These pres are built on Mackie's legacy of award winning engineering and silently and smoothly move through your gain adjustments-- no volume jumps or noise artifacts to distract your audience or your performers.

Every input channel comes fully equipped with parametric EQ, gate and compression. You can switch between "Vintage" and "Modern" compression modes depending on the sound you're trying to achieve. As well, a handful of different reverb and delays are available to use via FX sends.

The 14 XLR outputs are fully routable via the output matrix and each mix is easily adjusted from within the Master Fader app. You can connect 10 other iPads to the system so everyone can tweak their mixes independently.

Direct to hard-drive recording is made possible through a USB port on the back of the mixer. Simply press the record button within the app, and you're recording! No need to connect a laptop.
