Master Fader v3.2 Now Available


Master Fader v3.2, now available for free download, brings powerful new features to DL32R in addition to performance and workflow enhancements for DL1608 and DL806 users. With Master Fader v3.2, the DL32R now allows a full 32-channels of both recording and playback via USB hard drive giving users the ability to wirelessly control 32-channel recordings and virtual sound checks from anywhere in the venue. With a choice of 32x32 direct-to-drive recording, the ability to connect to Mac/PC and even networked recording via Dante Virtual Soundcard (DL Dante Expansion Card sold separately), DL32R delivers unmatched 32x32 recording flexibility.


Also added is a new mic pre view, allowing access to all input gain controls, phantom power and metering for all 32 mic pres in a single view. In addition to streamlining initial setup, mic pre view makes the DL32R an even more powerful digital snake when paired with the DL Dante Expansion Card. Master Fader and My Fader v3.2 also deliver VCA enhancements to DL32R, DL1608 and DL806 users. Now, when a channel is assigned to a VCA, a semi-transparent fader cap is also shown so users can see level changes caused by VCAs on the input channel itself. Additionally, if a VCA is muted or soloed, assigned channels will now show that they are being remotely muted or soloed. With numerous under-the-hood performance improvements and bug fixes, Mackie continues its commitment to making Master Fader the best control app on the market.
