The Mackie My Fader™ app gives you pocketable control over your Mackie DL Series digital live sound mixer with Mackie Master Fader v3. My Fader 3 provides the perfect set of features for on-stage performers controlling their own monitor mix and is also great for the FOH engineer who needs quick wireless control from anywhere in the venue.

Mackie My Fader provides a great way to try out the functions of the DL32R, DL1608 or DL806 mixer before you buy. For actual audio functionality, a Mackie DL Series Mixer is required.

* Wireless control allows band members to dial in monitor mixes from stage
* Support for DL32R, DL1608, and DL806
* Intuitive touch control over key mixing functions
* Mixer view allows fast adjustment of main and monitor mix levels and mutes with full metering
* Customize each iOS device’s control with Access Limiting
* Support for up to 10 iOS devices connected wirelessly
* Recall snapshots for instant changes during the show
* Easy channel identification with channel naming, colors and built in icons or take pictures with the built-in camera
* View groups improve organization and ease navigation
* Mute groups provides customizable control of channel muting
* Input channel linking and aux send linking for better control over stereo sources
* Grow and Glow™ clearly shows controls being adjusted
* Pair with Mackie Master Fader app for complete system control

* My Fader 3.2 requires Mackie Master Fader v3.2.
* My Fader 3.2 requires iOS 7.1 or greater.
* My Fader 3.2 is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, or iPod touch (5th generation).
* For wireless control, a Wi-Fi router is required. See the DL Series Reference Guide for complete information.
* My Fader 3.2 does not mix audio on its own. It requires a DL32R, DL1608 or DL806 Mixer and Master Fader 3.0 for full functionality.

What’s New

Version 3.2.1

This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.

***Master Fader 4 is now available for iPhone and iPod touch. Please search the App Store and update to Master Fader 4 for the latest features and bug fixes. My Fader 3.2.1 is no longer supported and remains available for compatibility only.***

My Fader 3.2.1 requires Mackie Master Fader v3.2 or v3.2.1. Be sure to perform a full System Backup of Master Fader before updating the app from the Tools>Settings view. After updating the Master Fader, the mixer firmware will also need to be updated. This will happen when you next connect Master Fader to your DL Series mixer. Please ensure you have enough time for both before your next gig.

My Fader 3.2.1 adds the following enhancements and fixed the following bugs:
•Added Italian Localization to My Fader
•Fixed issue where mute and solo state of channels in a view group were not reflected when enabling mute or solo on VCA
•Fixed issue where My Fader could lose communication with DL Hardware when recalling snapshots with multiple iPad connected
•Fixed issue where My Fader could crash after pressing home after taking a photo
•Fixed issue where using Access Limit all shortcuts on My Fader would take a long time to complete
•Other small fixes

My Fader 3.2 adds the following New Features and Enhancements:
• Enhanced VCA display. Now, when a channel is assigned to a VCA, a semi-transparent fader cap is also shown so users can see level changes caused by VCAs on the input channel itself. Additionally, if a VCA is muted or soloed, assigned channels will now show that they are being remotely muted or soloed.
• Enhanced performance of recalling snapshots
• Reduced overall memory usage improving performance, especially for users with large number of shows or shows with lots of images
• Added quick select of All or None for access limits
• Switched to the latest iOS8 SDK and building for 64bit

My Fader 3.2 fixed the following bugs:
• Fixed issue where channel safes did not protect even numbered aux sends after they were unlinked
• Fixed issue where access limiting the even channel of a linked output didn't limit access to the pair
• Fixed issue where using My Fader on an iPad could show a black bar across the UI
• Fixed issue where switching between mixer's online and offline states could cause the meters to freeze showing signal when none is present
• Lots of other small fixes

Really? A simple feature over looked again

This app runs just great. Personally I love my DL32R. My problem with Master Fader is that the Show files get saved in the order that they are created. There really needs to be a way to reorder them or at least put them alphabetically. We use this as a house board at a casino where we do multiple shows a week with bands coming back on a 3-12 month rotation. Trying to find a Show file for a returning band is a lot harder than it should be. We've even recreated a second file a few times because we missed that there was already a file for that show. Mackie, is it really that hard to put these files in alphabetical order?


Locks up phone

Glad to see the update, but every time I use it, it locks up my iPhone 4. Have to reset the phone to kill the app.
No lock-ups last night at the gig. The mixer was doing some weird stuff, but the app worked. So maybe the problem is on the mixer side of things. I'm working on figuring it out.

Not quite there

Works but the meter readings are wrong. Everything shows louder than on the ipad.
