(Full feature list at the bottom of this post)

Check out the release notes

The Control App For Everyone

Master Fader is incredibly powerful, fast, and customizable – all while being easy enough to open it up for the first time and feel at home. And with each free update, it is only getting better with new features, capabilities, refinements, and more. 


Control Your Way - Multi-platform Support

With upcoming releases of Master Fader, users will have more choices than ever on how they can control their DL Series mixer on up to 20 devices simultaneously. Adding Android™ support means virtually anyone can download the Master Fader app on devices they already own. Coming soon in version 5.1, we will be adding support for MacOS™ and Windows™ which opens up the control possibilities for engineers, installations, and more. 


Expanded Suite of FX

A whole new suite of FX plus a refreshed interface makes it easier to choose the type and see what is currently assigned. Add more depth to your mix and performances with chorus, flanger, rotary, auto-filter, and much more. DL32R is getting a major upgrade with the addition of another FX processor for a total of 4 different FX running simultaneously. 


The DC16 Just Got a Whole Lot Smarter

DC16 is getting the ability to create 8 fully user-assignable buttons plus an assignable encoder per channel. To keep settings and mixes from accidental changes, the entire console can now be locked, perfect for multi-user applications. Snapshots are one of the best benefits of a digital mixer and are a great way to instantly change your mix on the fly, and now you can switch with the single push of a button, perfect for theatres that require multiple changes throughout a show.
