OVERVIEW

Digital mixing from your iPad through the Lightning connector.

The DL1608L is a 16-channel mixer with revolutionary wireless iPad control that makes any live sound engineer's job and workflow much more enjoyable and exciting. This latest version of the series features a Lightning connector, replacing the 30-pin version. The Lightning connection is smaller and faster than 30-pin. The "L" delineation in the model name indicates the Lightning connector.

With 16 high-quality Onyx microphone preamps, 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, and powerful internal DSP processing, the DL1608L has plenty of unmatched hardware power to support the extremely intuitive user interface of the iPad. There is an iPad dock built-into the unit should you choose to use it in it's standard mixing form, or you can simply pop the iPad out of the dock to freely move about the venue to adjust your mix at will with the use of an additional Wi-Fi router. You'll have Full hands-on control of audio level, 4-band EQ, compression, gate, delay, reverb, and more for each of the DL1608's 16 channels and master fader. Perfect for a wide variety of smaller applications and venues, the DL806 is the most modern, powerful utility mixer available. Forget bulky consoles and racks of gear. The power is at your fingertips.

      Comments about Mackie DL1608L Lightning 16-channel Digital Live Sound Mixer w/ iPad Control:

      The Onyx mic preamps are nice and warm. Digital can be harsh but these sound great. The ability to mix each monitor, built in effects, wireless iPad control, snapshots of settings for every room we play, it's just awesome. This will not disappoint. FOH sound is stellar and the clubs we play are lathering on the compliments. If you are a gigging band with some talent then I highly recommend this set up. The Mackie DL1608, a couple killer powered subs and tops and you I promise you the clubs and other bands will take notice! Well done Mackie.
