Serious Price Drop for the Mackie DL806™ Digital Mixer

July 21, 2014 by Mobile Beat

The power of digital wireless mixing is now more attainable than ever!

The popular Mackie DL806 is now the lowest-priced professional digital mixer on the market. Proven at millions of live shows worldwide, DL Series mixers have an incredible reputation of intuitive, powerful performance. Combining the power of a full-featured digital mixer mixer with the unmatched ease-of-use of an iPad, the DL806 is ready for nearly any application.

Perfect for an open mic night at the corner café, singer/songwriter performances or a corporate meeting, the 8-channel DL806 delivers a rich, digital feature set that is way more powerful than an analog mixer. Completely controlled using one or more iPad devices, the Mackie Master Fader™ control app provides intuitive control over tons of powerful processing and mixing tools that only a digital mixer can provide.

“Just because your application has a lower channel count, it shouldn’t mean you are stuck with an analog mixer with limited capabilities,” commented Ben Olswang, Mackie product manager. “From wireless mixing to tons of powerful processing, the DL806 delivers much more than you expect for the low price. It’s something only Mackie can do.”

The DL806 is loaded with features that are designed for ease-of-use and versatility. Control the DL806 from an iPad, iPhone® or iPod touch® so the I/O can be placed wherever is most convenient and the performer or engineer can make adjustments anywhere from right on the stage to racked away, out of site, at a corporate auditorium.

With tons of powerful DSP built in, the DL806 is packed with professional and easy-to-use features that will elevate the sound quality no matter what the application. Get instant access to compressors, FX for vocals, and graphic equalizers right through your iPad. All eight input channels feature a 4-band EQ, gate and compression.
A lush suite of reverbs and delays are included and each output features both a 4-band PEQ and 31-band graphic EQ, limiting to protect connected loudspeakers and alignment delay perfect for syncing mDL806-Mastheadultiple speakers throughout a larger venue. Adding these types of features to a traditional analog mixer system would cost hundreds of dollars.
“Mackie has a strong history of bringing incredible features down to amazing price points. With the new attainable price of the DL806, every basement rehearsal space, corner coffee shop and open mic night can benefit from the power of digital mixing,” concluded Olswang.

Another advantage you’ll want from digital mixing is recall. Get up and running right away with a great-sounding library of presets that cover virtually any application. Easily use snapshots to configure the entire mixer for a variety of uses with just the touch of a button. Customize your DL806 to show only the controls you need for the task using a combination of view groups and access limiting.
This is perfect for situations where the user might not have a lot of mixing experience. Small bars can place an iPad with the bartender for simple music level adjustment as ambient noise levels change throughout the night. For corporate applications, clearly labeled channels for a single mic and video playback volume offer simplicity and safety for novice users.

Get out of analog and into digital, at a price you can afford, with the Mackie DL806 Digtial Mixer with iPad Control.
