Mix on the Fly, with an iPad!

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.
