Mackie is redefining live mixing with the DL1608 by combining the power of a digital mixer with the ease and portability of an iPad. Nearly 25 years ago, Mackie revolutionized the pro audio world by unleashing the CR1604 16 ch mixer. The DL1608 is the CR1604 of today, but digital and unplugged.
With DL1608's Master Fader app, you can mix from anywhere in the venue on your iPad. You can adjust everything from tuning front of house, to ringing out monitors.
Master Fader brings ground breaking DAW mixing features and functionality to the live environment. With this intuitive breakthrough app, you can create mix snap shots, channel presets and even record stereo tracks straight to your iPad. Plus, with "Grow and Glow" giving you visual indication of the function you're controlling, you can be confident that your always in control.
The DL1608 comes equipped with 16 of Mackie's flagship Onyx mic preamps with performance of 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters which deliver unparallelled sound quality. Combine that with eight balanced outputs, and you have a mixer that not only provides incredible dynamic range, fidelity, and transparency, but also great versatility and outstanding value.
You wont need additional racks of outboard gear with this mixer. The DL1608 is loaded with a choice of powerful plug-ins on every channel. With just the touch of a finger, you have total control over 4-band EQ , compression, and gate plugins. An added bonus is a a full featured reverb and tap delay plus the ability to adjust your mix to the room with the 31-band graphic EQ and limiter on the main and aux outs.
Multiple iPad support lets you simultaneously use up to 10 iPads to adjust the mix.. This allows for multiple engineers to control the mix, or gives the band members the ability to adjust their own monitors. Now you can dial in the mix you want to hear in real time on stage!
