Product Description

With an iPad-controlled digital mixer like the Mackie DL1608, you have the freedom to control your mixes as well as your plugins in real time from anywhere in the venue, whether it's the front of house or the back of the bar. Redefining live mixing, the 16-channel, 8-bus DL1608 combines the power and functionality of a full-featured digital mixer with the mobility and convenience of an iPad.

Use Superior Live Mixing Tools on Anything, Anywhere

The small-format Mackie DL1608 features 16 studio-quality Onyx mic preamps, 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters with 114 dB dynamic range, 12 XLR and 4 combo mic/line inputs, 8 balanced outputs, a useful Master Fader app for iPad, and more for first-rate dynamic range, transparency, and fidelity.

The mixer's Master Fader app, designed specifically for the iPad, brings DAW mixing features and functionality to the live environment, helping you to create mix snapshots, channel presets, and record stereo tracks directly to an iPad. Visual indicators allow you to see which function you're controlling, so there is never any question of what's going on.

Powerful Plug-ins on Every Channel

With this digital mixer, you won't have to haul additional racks of outboard gear to your gig, since Mackie's DL1608 packs your choice of plugins on every channel. Stroke your iPad's touch screen to get complete control over 4-band EQ, compression, and gate plugins; take your sound to the next level with a full-featured reverb and tap delay; or customize your mix to suit the room with the 31-band graphic EQ and limiter on the main and aux outputs.

Supports Multiple iPads for Multiple Uses

The DL1608 supports up to 10 iPads simultaneously, allowing multiple people to control and adjust a mix from different parts of the venue. Moreover, band members can adjust their own monitors instantly, without having to consult with anyone else on or off stage. You can also take advantage of the iPad's camera and assign pictures of band members or gear to certain channels, so that you always know who or what is associated with each channel.

Product Description

The Mackie DL1608 iPad Controlled Digital Mixer redeems live mixing by combining the proven power of a full-featured digital mixer with the unmatched ease and mobility of an iPad. With 16 boutique-quality Onyx mic preamps and the performance of 24bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, the DL1608 has unparalleled sound quality.

Seamlessly wired to wireless iPad control means you can mix from anywhere in the venue with the DL1608 mixer. This gives you the mobile freedom to control not only the mix, but also powerful plug-ins like EQ, dynamics, effects and more. The sleek Mackie DL1608 even supports up to 10 iPads. Forget bulky consoles and racks of gear. The power is at your fingertips!

Control your mix from anywhere

With the Mackie DL1608 mixer's seamless wired to wireless mixing capabilities, you can mix in real time from anywhere in the venue on your iPad*. The bar, the bathroom, the back closet. Instantly adjust mix functions from tuning front of house trouble spots to ringing out stage monitors.

*An additional Wi-Fi router is required and must be connected to the DL1608. The iPad must be within range of the Wi-Fi router to enable wireless mixing functionality. Wi-Fi router not included.

Control the Mix from your iPad

Designed specifically for the iPad, the Mackie DL1608's Master Fader app brings groundbreaking DAW mixing features and functionality to the live environment. With this intuitive breakthrough app, you can create mix snapshots, 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 you're always in control.

Proven Hardware that Sounds Great

By combining 16 of Mackie's flagship Onyx mic preamps with the performance of 24bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, the Mackie DL1608 iPad controlled mixer delivers unparalleled sound quality. Add to that 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.

Tons of Built In Processing

The DL1608 mixer is loaded with a choice of powerful plug-ins on every channel, so you won't need to set up additional racks of outboard gear. With just the touch of a finger, you have total control over 4-band EQ, compression and gate plug-ins. Plus, sweeten your sound with a full-featured reverb and tap delay or adjust your mix to the room with the 31-band graphic EQ and limiter on the main and aux outs.

Multiple iPad Support

Supporting up to 10 iPads simultaneously, the Mackie DL1608 allows multiple engineers to control the mix. Plus, it gives band members the ability to adjust their own monitors. We're looking at you, lead guitarist. Now, the band can dial in the mix they want to hear in real time right on stage.

Channel Images

Put the Sharpie away and use your iPad camera to snap quick pics of the band members or their gear for customized channel ID. Face it, that's pretty cool.

Forward Looking Design

The sleek and low profile 16-channel Mackie DL1608 iPad controlled mixer is rooted in design innovation. Its powerfully small format destroys the industry's notion that 'bigger is better' by allowing modern technology to eliminate the need for bulky boards and racks of gear.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (13 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Surprisingly Awesome!"
Overall: I was skeptical because I'm a "musician who can run sound" as opposed to a "musician who DOES run sound." I must say, however, that after toying around with the product for a while, and a brief 30-minute crash course from a local friend, I feel completely at-one with the DL1608. Obviously, having the gains separate from the iPad itself can be a drag, but if you set your levels properly at the very beginning of sound check, you shouldn't have to touch them again! I've had this system for a few weeks now, and I can't stop talking about it. The price is steep(roughly $1,500 for controller and iPad), and there's only room for four 1/4" inputs, but don't let that deter you. Between the size, weight, and awesomeness of 6 aux sends, I can't imagine why you wouldn't like this board as much as I have!
