Mackie has released Master Fader v2.0, the primary control app for Mackie DL Series Digital Live Sound Mixers. Master Fader v2.0, which is now available as a free download, delivers new features that are a direct result of customer feedback. Mackie DL series mixers are completely software controlled from your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch.
“Master Fader v2.0 is all about increased control and workflow improvement,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie product manager. “We are very excited to add many of the great features you have been requesting, all at zero cost to the user.”
New features like input channel and aux send linking are perfect for easily controlling stereo inputs sources like keyboard or when using in-ear monitors. The addition of mute groups and view groups are perfect for anyone that desires customisable control of their work surface. And the new Quick Access Panel gives instant access to important controls without taking up precious screen real estate.
Workflow updates like channel/aux linking and access to mute/view groups also apply to a new version of Mackie’s My Fader control app, built specifically for iPhone and iPod touch. This ensures that on-stage performers mixing their own monitors benefit from these updates and provides a greater level of control for the front of house engineer looking for pocketable control while roaming the venue.
