Introducing Master Fader Classic for Mackie DL Series Mixers









We are taking a big step towards providing solutions for all Mackie DL1608 and DL806 customers with the introduction of Master Fader Classic. Master Fader Classic is essentially the v2.1 build and is available as a completely separate download from the App Store.

Many of you have been asking for this for various reasons. Are you an installer who just finished an install with Master Fader v2.1. If so, you spent a great deal of time training the staff, ensuring system stability and are done with the job. Having the option to keep that system on the version of Master Fader originally installed gives you the flexibility to control when and how to best upgrade.

It also means that if Master Fader 2.1 does the job for this customer, they can continue to use it as long as they like. Or maybe you are a contractor that visits various customers. You can now have both versions installed on your iPad. This allows you to more easily support different installs, some with Master Fader 3.0 and others with Master Fader Classic in use. This will provide the flexibility that many of you have been asking for and we hope you are excited as we are to have this choice. Click here to download Master Fader Classic from the App Store.
