Choice of Vintage or Modern Dynamics and Improved Snapshot Operation Lead Feature Updates


ANAHEIM, CA – January 24, 2013 – Mackie today announces another update to the powerful Master Fader control application for the DL1608 and new DL806 digital live sound mixers. Master Fader v1.4 launches today for iPad, with a host of new features sure to please DL mixer user including a new selection of channel plug-ins and improved snapshot operation driven by customer interaction.

“Try adding an entirely new EQ or dynamics section to your average mixer,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie Product Manager. “You’re going to need more than a screwdriver. With a Mackie DL series mixer, it’s as easy as updating the app from your iPad. ”

Master Fader v1.4 features an entirely new selection of vintage processing. After extensive analysis, development and testing, the new vintage EQ, compressor and gate deliver the sought-after musical characteristics of your favorite industry-standard processors. The vintage compressor and gate provide a lightning-fast attack, non-linear attack/release and program dependent release making them great for drums and other transient sources. The vintage EQ captures the unique interactions between the shelving bands and the gain and frequency-dependent Q structure of the parametric band to deliver the clarity and sheen of classic EQ designs. This EQ is great for getting vocals, guitars and other instruments to sit perfectly in a mix. Now, DL users can choose between clean, surgical modern processing and the new range of classic vintage plug-ins for more flexibility in use.

In addition, a huge update to the show management and overall snapshot operation makes DL mixers even better for users with complex shows and multiple wireless devices. With DL series mixers the users can snap a photo of the band with their iPad camera or choose from a selection of handy icons and use this as channel ID. With v1.4 these images are now synched between all wireless devices connected to the mixer. The snapshot system will also store and recall these images across devices and the user can add an image to each show to help with identification. Plus, shows now load in the background, keeping all wireless devices online when a show is changed. And, of course, shows will seamlessly transfer between the DL1608 and new DL806.

Master Fader v1.4 will be available soon for free download from the App Store (Existing users will be able to update directly on their iPad) - https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mackie-master-fader/id511500747?mt=8
