Mackie DC16 Axis Digital Mixing Control Surface


Mackie DC16 Axis Digital Mixing Control Surface


The Mackie DC16 Axis Digital Mixing Control Surface is a Dante-connected control surface that, when combined with the DL32R digital mixer and Master Fader iOS control app, completes the AXIS Digital Mixing System. The DC16 features 17 full channel strips with Alps 100mm motorized touch-sensitive faders and per-channel encoders. The ergonomic layout provides a generous working space with a dedicated selected channel section with controls for quick access to the most important parameters. Large, full-color back-lit channel ID screens provide flexible channel labeling which includes name, color, and icon. There are 6-segment LED channel meters and 3-segment GR meters per channel, while the dedicated show display offers snapshot control.

The DC16 uses SmartBridge, a surface to wireless mixing function that automatically senses the presence of up to three iPad devices to deliver tight integration and customized functionality. The central iPad follows the dedicated hardware controls for the selected channel and can be connected via a wired connection, which affords direct recording and playback.

The control surface provides additional I/O for the AXIS system and includes 4×4 Dante via dual locking etherCON, an XLR talkback mic input, 1/8″ stereo input, and 1/4″ control room and headphone outputs. The DC16 ships with a power cord and dust cover.
