Now available and shipping worldwide, the modular Mackie AXIS Digital Mixing System combines the power of the 32-channel DL32R digital mixer with a DC16 control surface. With 32 remote-controllable Onyx+ mic preamps and 16 outputs paired with a built-in DSP, the system is aimed at medium and large channel count live sound production and system integration applications. The system relies on Dante for communication between the DL32R mixer and DC16 control surface, enabling additional networking capability for professional applications.
AXIS delivers a tactile mixing experience with the DC16 control surface, with features, according to Mackie, that set it apart from mixers costing twice as much or more. The AXIS design provides a unique surface-to-wireless workflow, allowing users to seamlessly switch between DC16’s hardware controls and comprehensive wireless mixing. This is possible via the integrated SmartBridge, which can house up to three iPad devices, delivering simultaneous control over multiple channels and innovative smart sensing that knows when an iPad is in place. SmartBridge provides customization over each iPad view with both a fixed and history mode that creates workflow flexibility.
The Mackie AXIS system includes the DL32R Rackmount Digital Mixer, the DL Dante Expansion Card and the DC16 Digital Control Surface. Touring and install packages are available, including accessories like an 80m Cat5e reel, DC16 road case and more, depending on the package.
