Control the Mix from your iPad
Designed specifically for the iPad, the Mackie DL1608’s Master Fader app brings groundbreaking DAW mixing features and functionality to the live environment. With this intuitive breakthrough app, you can create mix snapshots, channel presets and even record stereo tracks straight to your iPad. Plus, with ‘Grow and Glow’ giving you visual indication of the function you’re controlling, you can be confident that you’re always in control.

Proven Hardware that Sounds Great
By combining 16 of Mackie’s flagship Onyx mic preamps with the performance of 24bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, the Mackie DL1608 iPad controlled mixer delivers unparalleled sound quality. Add to that eight balanced outputs, and you have a mixer that not only provides incredible dynamic range, fidelity and transparency, but also great versatility and outstanding value.

Tons of Built In Processing
The DL1608 mixer is loaded with a choice of powerful plug-ins on every channel, so you won’t need to set up additional racks of outboard gear. With just the touch of a finger, you have total control over 4-band EQ, compression and gate plug-ins. Plus, sweeten your sound with a full-featured reverb and tap delay or adjust your mix to the room with the 31-band graphic EQ and limiter on the main and aux outs.

Multiple iPad Support
Supporting up to 10 iPads simultaneously, the Mackie DL1608 allows multiple engineers to control the mix. Plus, it gives band members the ability to adjust their own monitors. We’re looking at you, lead guitarist. Now, the band can dial in the mix they want to hear in real time right on stage.

Channel Images
Put the Sharpie away and use your iPad camera to snap quick pics of the band members or their gear for customized channel ID. Face it, that’s pretty cool.

Forward Looking Design
The sleek and low profile 16-channel Mackie DL1608 iPad controlled mixer is rooted in design innovation. Its powerfully small format destroys the industry’s notion that ‘bigger is better’ by allowing modern technology to eliminate the need for bulky boards and racks of gear.

Footnote: iPad is sold separately.

Ease of Use
A lot of punch in a small package.
Your general opinion of this product.
Very impressed with it so far. Very intuitive interface through the app. I was able to set up shows, snapshots, and groups very quickly and easily.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Typical Mackie sound, which is excellent. The one thing I was disappointed with was the amount of plastic used in this mixer. It does not have the 'built like a tank' feel that Mackie mixers typically have. I would have like to seen more metal in the chassis, but to hit the price points they were able to hit, I'm sure they had to make compromises.
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
Very easy to setup and use. New features and functions added essentially for free with app updates is a plus. The software does have a few quirks and shortcomings, but they are things that could be fixed with a software upgrade. Mixing on the mixer is a joy, and very responsive.
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
Best features include the quiet preamps, and the app to control it. There are a few features missing, but many can be added with a software upgrade. A built in power supply would be much better than the power brick that is included with the mixer.
How is the tone?
Typical excellent Mackie sound.
How has it stood up over time?
