Mackie DL1608

I like many others once owned a Mackie 1604 mixer. At the time it offered major bang for your buck and it was built like a tank. Mackie thinks they have their next big hit on their hands with the DL1608. All I can say is they have created the best mixer commercial of all time (not that I know of any others…but). Please do watch.

“The Mackie DL1608 redefines 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, you have unparalleled sound quality. Seamless wired to wireless iPad control means you can mix from anywhere in the venue. 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 DL1608 even supports up to 10 iPads. Forget bulky consoles and racks of gear. The power is at your fingertips.” – Mackie

  2. And what about the PreSonous StudioLive? Not quite like these but the board and computer can be controlled by iPad from anywhere in the room.

    1. Not realy. The Studiolive needs to be plug to a computer to be controled by an Ipad. Mackie, Behringer and Line6 allow to control without computer. For me, it’s a big difference.

      1. So with these other boards… can the board be used without the iPad? It may come down to price points too… I have a laptop I can use already. With these new boards It sounds like I would have to buy another iPad (if I wanted to continue to use my iPad for what I am using it for during performances).

        Any word on price of these new boards?
