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 powerful plug-ins like EQ, dynamics, effects and more. The sleek DL1608 even supports up to 10 iPad devices. Forget bulky consoles and racks of gear. The power is at your fingertips.
16 Onyx Preamps - The Mackie DL1608 comes loaded with 16 studio-quality Onyx mic preamps that deliver depth, headroom and immense detail to your live mix. Plus, with 12 XLR and four combo mic/line inputs, connecting mics and instruments is quick and easy.
24Bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA Converters - The Mackie DL1608's high-end 24bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters offer a remarkable 114 db dynamic range. Mackie align their Onyx pre-amps precisely with the converters to provide you with the most headroom and the lowest noise and distortion possible - resulting in brilliant sound quality from a vocal whisper to a wailing guitar solo.
Tons of Built-In Processing (DSP) - The DL1608 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 iPad devices simultaneously, the Mackie DL1608 allows multiple engineers to control the mix. Plus, it gives band members the ability to adjust their own monitors. Now, the band can dial in the mix they want to hear in real time right on stage. And the DL1608 works great with all versions of the iPad, whether wireless or wired via our ingenious Patent Pending tray design.
Total Snapshot Recall - The Mackie DL1608 allows you to recall mix functions with just the touch of a finger. With Total Snapshot Recall, you can now easily save and access sound check settings for multiple bands, complex song mixes, previous mixes from challenging venues, recall scenes for theater productions and more. You can even pre-set the mixing board and be ready to go the moment you arrive.
Channel Presets - Quickly set up a new mix with the DL1608's Channel Presets. With simple touch screen control, you can immediately assign a factory or your own custom channel preset for kick drum, bass, guitar, keyboard and more to any channel you choose. And when you've made the perfect settings, easily save them for later use and share them with your friends.
Record for Easy Sharing - The Mackie DL1608 lets you record your mix from the L/R stereo outputs directly to your iPad, allowing you to upload it to your favourite application and share it with others.
Install Friendly Features - The Mackie DL1608 is perfect for installing in venues. With its easy to use Master Fader iPad application it has never been easier to train up new sound engineers. Plus, forget the bulky racks of outboard gear, the powerfully small, low profile design lets you install it just about anywhere.
Big On Security - The DL1608 is big on security. The PadLock feature locks down your iPad for permanent installs, while the Kensington lock - the industry standard in protecting technological equipment - secures the mixer to guard it from theft.
"It's an absolute rethinking of what a mixer should be."
