Mackie Master Fader

By Mackie

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


The Mackie Master Fader™ app gives you total control over your Mackie DL1608 or DL806 digital live sound mixer. With a user interface designed from the ground up for touch, all mix functions* are controllable using Master Fader via the wired dock connection in the DL Series Mixer or with a Wi-Fi network allowing you to control the mix from anywhere.

Mackie Master Fader v2.1 provides the perfect way to try out the functions of the DL1608 or DL806 mixer before you buy. For actual audio functionality, a Mackie DL Series Mixer is required.

• Intuitive touch control over every major mix function
• Grow and Glow™ clearly shows controls being adjusted
• Mixer view allows fast adjustment of channel controls* including solo, mute, pan and level with full metering
• Channel view gives control over a choice of powerful DSP-based plug-ins
-- Inputs: Choice of Vintage or Modern 4-band EQ, HPF, compression, gate
-- Master and Aux Sends: 4-band parametric EQ, 31-band GEQ, alignment delay, comp/limiter
-- FX: Reverb and Delay with dedicated channel sends and returns to each output
• Easy channel identification with channel naming and built in icons or images from your iPad camera
• Input channel linking for simple control of stereo sources
• Aux send linking perfect when using in-ear-monitors

• Lightning Compatibility – Master Fader allows docked operation with the DL1608 and DL806 mixers with Lightning Connector with the iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini (using optional iPad mini Tray Kit). Wireless operation is also supported with the iPad, iPad 2, iPad (3rd generation) and iPad Air.
• DL1608 or DL806 Mixer - The Mackie Master Fader application does not mix audio on its own. It requires the DL Series Mixer hardware to fully function.
• Wi-Fi Router – For wireless control of a DL Series Mixer, a Wi-Fi router is required. See the DL Series Reference Guide for complete information.

And be sure to try Mackie My Fader for iPhone and iPod touch giving you powerful pocket sized control over your mix. Available now in the App Store.
