Mackie has announced the release of the DL1608 live sound mixer.
Though iPad control is the sexy attraction, the DL1608 may thrive for its feature set and price/performance attributes. A 16-channel digital console that clocks in at a light 7.9lbs, this unit tucks under your arm and can be had for under a grand on the street. It features 16 of the Mackie Onyx mic pre-amps that have been established as high quality and an excellent value for years.
Six aux sends, internal plug-ins (you can choose from a suite of available plug-ins) that can be accessed through the iPad, which docks neatly into the DL1608, and a host of other features you can learn about on the Mackie site, make the DL1608 an intriguing addition to the live sound marketplace.
