The Mackie AXIS Digital Mixing System speeds up your workflow with the immense visual feedback of the DC-16 Control Surface. Its low-profile, robust design offers ample working space and incredible tactile control. There are 16-channel strips across the surface, each with motorized, touch-sensitive faders. Each channel strip offers a 6-segment level meter and 3-segment gain reduction meters, showing gate and compressor activity. You’ll also find solo, mute and channel select buttons.
26 high-resolution, full-colored TFT screens on the surface of the DC-16 are both eye-catching and functional, giving you access to the information you need, in an intuitive way, letting you work faster. With all the highly-legible screens, you can label everything digitally, completely removing the need for board tape. This starts with channel screens, creating the ideal scribble strip to display the channel name, color and icon. You can even take a photo with your iPad and use it as a custom icon for the board.
Like any console, you can view all the channels in order and use the bank buttons to see more channels but with the DC-16, you can significantly optimize your workflow since it completely eliminates the need for fixed banking with its 6 customizable view groups. View groups can contain any combination of input channels, returns, subgroups and VCAs. Navigating with view groups is much faster than traditional banking. You don't have to have layers of board tape or remember what was on which channel; view groups work to eliminate these manual processes.
The right screens feature the mix selector to control the main left/right bus, 14 aux sends, 6 subgroups, 6 VCAs and the 6 matrix mixes. When one is selected, the mix is shown across the faders. This allows you to always mix on real faders. Access all of your mix masters by pressing the Masters button for fast overall level control.
With integral support for up to three iPad devices, you get more high-resolution visual workspac
