Back at Winter NAMM, Mackie turned a lot of heads with the release of its DL 1608 Digital Live Sound Mixer. Since then, musicians and engineers alike have waited with bated breath for the mixer’s release. That day has now come. In mid-August, Mackie announced that it would begin shipping the product worldwide.
“We are extremely excited to get the DL1608 into the hands of musicians and engineers,” said Ben Olswang, Mackie product manager. “We’ve been addressing customer interest with a series of video podcasts that go over all the cool features.”
The DL1608 comes equipped with 16 boutique-quality Onyx mic preamps and the performance of 24-bit Cirrus Logic™ AD/DA converters. With wireless iPad control, users can mix from anywhere in the venue, giving them complete mobile freedom. The DL1608 actually can support up to 10 iPad devices. Mackie has released a series of video podcasts to educate users about the product.
The Mackie Master Fader Control App is available for free from the App Store. For more information about the DL1608 or to find a dealer, visit www.mackie.com/DL1608.
