Mackie has introduced the DL32R, a powerful new 32-channel digital mixing system completely controlled wirelessly from Mackie’s intuitive Master Fader iPad app.
The DL32R features complete wireless control over everything, including fully-loaded DSP and multi-track recording/playback.
“Early on, Mackie believed that we can bring the user incredible benefits if we just let go of old conventions,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie Senior Product Manager. “By ensuring that each and every feature can be controlled wirelessly without compromise, we are delivering benefits to users that were simply not possible before now.”
The Mackie DL32R features a mix of flexible, professional I/O in an ultra-compact 3U rackmount design. Each of the 32 inputs (24 XLR, 8 XLR/TRS combo) feature Mackie’s all-new Onyx+™ recallable mic preamps, with remote control over preamp gain and phantom power. The new Onyx+ preamps outperform the industry-proven Onyx design, which has garnered rave reviews for its boutique-quality sound and performance.
The DL32R 32-channel wireless digital mixer with iPad control will be available worldwide in Q4, 2014, priced at a MSRP of $2499.99 USD.

Mackie has announced the launch of its new Mix Series of compact mixers.
Mix Series mixers are the most affordable mixer produced by Mackie. Designed to maintain great sounding audio from any source, the new line of compact mixers offer a feature set perfect for smaller applications. Building on Mackie’s impressive 25-year history of designing reliably rugged mixers, the new Mix Series delivers proven sound quality and straightforward features that don’t compromise in performance.
“Not every application is complex. Sometimes you just need to get the audio from point A to point B, but that doesn’t mean you should have to sacrifice on quality,” commented Matt Redmon, Mackie Sr. Product Manager. “That’s why we’ve given users a new choice – an affordable mixer series with the Mackie stamp of approval, so users on a budget never have to compromise.”
The Mix5, Mix8 and Mix12FX compact mixers feature the right mix of I/O, EQ and routing for applications that don’t require a lot of inputs or multiple racks of output. Ideal for singer/songwriters, small band rehearsals or instrumentalists on the go, Mix Series mixers deliver high-quality Mackie preamps and electronics in proven high headroom, low-noise designs. Additionally, Mix12FX offers a selection of 12 integrated effects including reverbs, choruses and delays to easily create mixes that sound great. Each model features an all-metal chassis, high-quality components and a sleek rugged design that’s built to last.
“And if your application requires a little more, you can simply step up to our bestselling ProFX, our flagship VLZ4 or Onyx lines,” Redmon concluded. “Either way, wouldn’t you rather mix on a Mackie?”
The Mackie Mix Series compact mixers will be available beginning October 2014, priced at MSRP $69.99 USD for the Mix5, $109.99 USD for Mix8, and $159.99 USD for Mix12FX.
