Ratings and Reviews
Great app except for 3 critical issues
I’m a fan of Mackie products. I own a DL32R, a DL1608, 2 DLM8, and 2 DLM12S. I am a fan of MasterFader 4, and I like the added effects built into Master Fader 5, BUT Master Fader 5 has three critical issues that despite the numerous complaints has not been corrected. Jumping Faders. How can this simple issue be allowed to remain uncorrected on MF5? It makes running your one monitor mix from a phone next to impossible while trying to perform and it leads to volume spikes in FOH as the faders jump when you touch them. The second major issue for me has been that the iPad docked in my DL1608 which worked flawlessly with MF4 now disconnects regularly with MF5. This is another major issue that just shouldn’t be happening. The third issue is related to musicians controlling their mix with iPhones. Despite setting the appropriate access limits to show only their monitor; when they start the app, MF5 defaults to the Main mix. I’ve had musicians inadvertently controlling the Main mix until I taught them all to select their monitor mix. Once they hit “Main”, only then does their monitor aux mix show up. After that, the only mix available to them is theirs, but when they start the App next gig, the app defaults to main. None of these issues occurred with the excellent MF4
Good mixer but mid show connection issues
I like the DL32S mixer and app, but in the middle of my 5th show with the mixer, all the meters go dead and the app has no connection for 5 secs, then reconnects and works for a few seconds, then freezes again, over and over. I’m mixing every few seconds then have no control. Once the show was over I re-powered the mixer and it worked fine, but it’s hard to tell without the entire band player through the mixer. Not sure if it’s a wifi issue. But I would hope Mackie would begin to build redundant control streams or a more solid wifi system. This is very disappointing during a show, especially considering I was sitting 8 feet from the mixer. Hoping for an stability update soon!
Terrible technical support
I noted their technical support hours were from 8-5 PST and organized my day around my DL32R not able to extract drivers for brand new laptop running Reaper. I called ar 7:59 am and the machine said they were closed. I called two minutes later and I was allowed to try and connect to technical support....which went directly to VM. I called again....and again....and again...for more than 15 minutes, leaving multiple messages. I waited for 35 minutes and called again.....this time I was seemingly routed to tech support but was bounced into VM again, after 15 minutes on hold. I left a message and called back.....same deal; routed, seemingly, to tech support.....which went to VM after another 15 minute hold. The third time got me connected to Dave that told me the tech support hours are from 8-5, M-F. I asked about the best way to optimize the tech-support experience. It’s impossible. He offered no solutions. He did suggest I update to version 5....after reading the reviews, I’m afraid I’ll have to look for a new mixer....not a Mackie, this time ( I have owned and sold more of this product than any other.....just gets worse).
Good luck, be safe out there!
