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.
