Mackie DL1608

Mackie has redefined the pro audio world once again by introducing the DL1608 mixer.

Mackie has included their Onyx mic preamps to give you superior quality for your inputs. You will also get 8 balanced outputs for a wide range of options. Each channel is filled with great plug-ins so you don't need to break your back carrying and adding extra racks of additional gear to get what you want. You will have total control of a 4-band EQ, compression and gate plug-ins for you inputs. Your outputs give you a full 31-band EQ and limiterm reverb, and tap delay.

We are not even to the coolest features yet! The DL1608 allows up to 10 iPad devices to be linked simultaneously! This allows the sound man to mix the house mic and allows the other members to adjust the monitors to their liking with their own device. The iPad controls allow you to walk around and hear what your mix sounds like so you can tune to the room. Mackie had made this mixer take up very little space. So you can save space and it has a very sleek, low profile look. If you are looking to move in to the next level of mixing, then this Mackie DL1608 is ready to take you there!
You can also add a dust cover to protect when not in use. A mixer carrying bag for when you are moving from gig to gig, and rack ears to mount the main body of the mixer in a rack system.
