Mackie has announced a powerful new control app for the DL1608 and new DL806 digital live mixers – My Fader.
Based on the user interface and workflow of the Master Fader control app for iPad, My Fader provides a set of features for on-stage performers controlling their own monitor mix, and allows pocketable wireless control from anywhere in the venue.
My Fader enables control of DL Series mixers via Wi-Fi from an iPhone or iPod touch. Version 1.0 lets users work with multiple input channels at once, and provides an output selector for quick access to any mix. The app also offers channel muting, detailed channel ID and metering, and includes a master fader. An access control feature limits users to controlling only their assigned aux, keeping them away from other outputs.
“Technology is nothing short of amazing,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie Product Manager. “With a DL mixer, My Fader app and an iPhone, you’ve got a powerful digital mixer in hand that you can control from anywhere. This was not even a dream just a few years ago and now we’ve brought this power to a price point attainable by more users than ever possible before.”
My Fader v1.0 will be available soon as a free download. Like the Master Fader control app for the iPad, My Fader will see frequent updates to increase the feature set further.
