Mackie DL32R 32 Channel Wireless Digital Mixer

Last night I was out at a local bar and grill for the weekly Wednesday Night Jam. The bar is small but, it has a new Mackie DL32R Wireless Digital Mixer installed along with some Mackie SRM450 V3 Powered Loudspeakers installed too.

Last night the owner and my friend Steve, gave me his iPad and told me to have fun with the mix! I am an old school, analog sound guy but, I have been trying out mixing on digital mixers whenever I get a chance. I had never mixed on an iPad until yesterday. After I figured out where everything is located on the pad, I got reasonably comfortable with the process of mixing without a console in front of me.

Mackie has done a wonderful job of designing the Master Fader app for the iPad device! I only scratched the surface of the mixer but, I plan on going back again next week for the jam and perfect my technique!

I visited the Mackie web site to get more information on the Mackie DL32R mixer. I found a number of videos pertaining to the features and operations of the system.

Here is an overall view of the system in this video along with well respected sound engineer, Martin Frey.
