Ratings and Reviews
I love this set up My dads been in a band as long as I can remember n I’ve always help them wit setting up n stuff n I’ve recently began sound after apprenticing under the old sound guy n he recently lost the position n I took over but for a new sound guy this system is really user friendly n I’m learning very quickly once u figure out how to navigate threw the system, which isn’t hard at all, u can figure everything else out wit ease. Especially if ur someone who has been doin sound for awhile it will all look familiar n after learning navigation to know where all ur options r u should know exactly how to use the program I’m still learning the program jus cuz I’m still learning sound but like I said anyone who’s been doing sound will have no problem at all wit this program n will find that it will make life easier
Most underrated mixer in its segment
I run audio all over and on many nice mixers. The DL32r is a runaway success. Show after show, people ask what mixer we are using and are shocked it’s “only a Mackie”. I tell them to listen to their ears and they have to agree it is an amazing mixer.
Flexible routing and applications make it a winner for sure. It’s equally at home in the studio as it is live. I love using both subgroups and DCA’s in live shows. And bands love it when I record multitrack and they have an option to buy their tracks. I even will play some live mixes as post show playback right after the event. The musicians can’t believe they sounded that good.
Get this mixer... best option under $5k, and it costs less than $2k!
Support smaller screen devices
The iPhone screens are now much more useful than they were when this app originally launched. Really hoping the developers can consider adding more or full functionality to iPhones especially plus and max sizes. Current navigation on phone is really cumbersome. Would be great to have quicker access to mute group. Please add record/playback controls and EQ screen even if it’s just parameters and not dragging the graph. Finally if I connect constantly to just one device please automatically connect when it’s found on the network. Save me a frequent step.
