DL mixers are 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 anger, 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

With the proven performance of Mackie Onyx mic preamps, the uncompromising quality of Cirrus Logic® AD/DA converters and all the right I/O, DL Series mixers deliver rock-solid results professionals demand.

All new DL Series mixers now feature the Apple Lightning connector. This will allow docking of both the iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini*, allowing both of these devices to access the iPad playback and recording functions. All current iPad devices can function wirelessly with DL mixers. Want to convert from a 30-pin connector over to Lightning? Click here.

DL Series mixers are big on security. The PadLock™ feature locks down your iPad for permanent installs, while the Kensington lock – the industry standard in protecting technological equipment – secures the mixer to guard it from theft.

DL Series mixer feature high-end 24-bit Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters, offering a remarkable 114dB dynamic range. We align our Onyx preamps precisely with the converters to provide you with the most headroom and the lowest noise and distortion possible – resulting in brilliant sound quality from a vocal whisper to a wailing guitar solo.

There are plenty of 1/4″ aux outputs available, each perfect for driving a monitor wedge. There’s a pair of main outputs for your system and a decidated headphone output for listening to soloed tracks or getting a close-up view of your mix.

Each and every channel features a choice of powerful plug-ins to dial in the perfect sound for whatever you’ve got plugged in. You can even link adjoining channels for fast control of stereo sources.
