The Mackie Master Fader App is now available, giving you a preview of what the upcoming Mackie DL1608 Mixer can do.
This app is Mackie's teaser, letting us peak into the iPad control application that will come with the the DL-1608 Mixer hardware. It is also a great opportunity for prospective buyers to virtually "try" the digital mixer before they actually buy.
Ben Olswang, Mackie product manager, said: "There’s been a tremendous amount of interest in the DL1608… especially surrounding the user interface. That’s why we wanted to release the Master Fader control app as soon as possible. Anybody interested in the Mackie DL1608 can get their hands on the intuitive touch control app before the mixer hits the shelves."
The Mackie Master Fader App is designed to provide you with full control over the Mackie DL1608 Digital Live Sound Mixer. It is designed to prioritize efficiency and the use of apps. It eliminates unnecessary screens and avoids redundancies, the Master Fader control app offers simple navigation, wired or wirelessly, in conjunction with the Mackie DL1608 hardware.
Since this is just a preview version, the operational version will also be available via iTunes App Store, along with future updates. Some features are still unavailable, but will be working as soon as the DL1608 mixer is available.
