OVERVIEW

Digital mixing from your iPad through the Lightning connector.

The DL806L is an 8-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 8 high-quality Onyx microphone preamps, 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, and powerful internal DSP processing, the DL806 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 its 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 DL806's 8 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 DL806L 8-channel Digital Live Sound Mixer w/ iPad Control (Lightning):

    Great little mixer. When used with the Master Fader app the features and options are very nice. I ended up going back to my Mackie ProFX12 though because it is too hard to make adjustments on the fly when mixing your own sound and performing. Great mixer for a sound tech that has the freedom to move about during the show. The wifi interface, once set up is seamless.

      Comments about Mackie DL806L 8-channel Digital Live Sound Mixer w/ iPad Control (Lightning):

      First, I bought Soundcraft 8 channel mixer but I have to return because its wifi get trouble so mixer could not be controled by ipad on the second day. And I buy this one to replace Soundcraft mixer. So far this Mackie mixer is good because it connected directly to ipad so I don't worry about wifi problem when I use this one outside.

        Comments about Mackie DL806L 8-channel Digital Live Sound Mixer w/ iPad Control (Lightning):

        Had this unit for a few days only and I'm pleased with it. Preamps are better than expected and it is so easy to use. Ideal for playing along, small gigs, recording covers, etc. It easier to use than a compter interface and you don't need to carry your computer along. A bit expensive considering you need an iPad. Bought a restock unit and it is working fine.
