Mackie starts shipping new DL Series live sound mixers

Mackie has announced that its latest DL Series digital live sound mixers, the 16-channel DL16S and 32-channel DL32S, are now available.

The DL16S and DL32S offer a new ‘Built-Like-A-Tank’ stagebox form factor with built-in Wi-Fi for multi-platform control.

Both models offer Onyx+ mic preamps, fully loaded DSP on each input and output plus four FX processors, as well as a whole new suite of FX like chorus, flanger, rotary, auto-filter, and more. Like the company’s DL32R, the DL16S and DL32S both feature full multi-track recording and playback via USB.

Mackie has also unveiled the next major update to the control app for its DL Series digital mixers, Master Fader 5.0. In this update, a heavily requested feature by DL users, Android support, is now available. Master Fader 5.0 will be available for iOS and Android with support for DL16S and DL32S. Support for other DL Series models, as well as Mac and PC control, is coming in Master Fader 5.1.

The Mackie DL16S and DL32S are available worldwide now. Sold individually, the US MSRP pricing is $999.99 for the DL16S, and $1819.99 for the DL32S. The Master Fader 5.0 app is available as a free download on iOS and Android devices.
