Mackie has launched something called the AXIS Digital Mixing System. With full Dante integration, the modular AXIS system combines the power of the 32-channel DL32R digital mixer with the DC16 control surface. The combined system will be on display at the ISE Show, where Mackie is joining with Polar Audio UK at Stand 1-Q95.
With 32 remote-controllable Onyx+ mic preamps and 16 outputs paired with massive built-in DSP, the system is ideal for medium and large channel count applications. The system relies on Dante for communication between the DL32R mixer and DC16 control surface, enabling additional networking capability for professional applications.
Visual feedback is provided by a full-color channel displays and the ability to dock up to three iPads in the SmartBridge, with smart sensing that knows when your iPad is in place. This allows easy customization over each iPad view to meet specific workflow needs. Users can grab an iPad from the DC16 and head out to tune the room or dial in monitors and the Master Fader control app knows to switch it to the view that makes the most sense for the user.
