The Heart of Your Mix

Master Fader is the main user interface for your DL Series mixer. Rather than knobs, faders and buttons on a large piece of hardware, you get powerful mixing tools on your tablet, Mac, or PC and at up to 20 different devices simultaneously. The intuitive design of the Master Fader app makes managing your mix, large or small, easy and efficient. Organize your channels with view and mute groups, utilize subgroups with full bus processing, control levels of channel groups simply with VCAs, and even lock out devices from specific capabilities within the app. And when you get a mix you like, you can save it all into a snapshot.

 

Powerful Processing

From EQ to compression, every bit of signal processing is implemented with the highest quality possible maintaining the fidelity of each source. Every channel and output bus gets it's own dedicated processing.

The 4-band parametric EQ on each channel and output features a dedicated high-pass filter, modern and vintage modes, and built-in RTA for maximum versatility and detailed analysis of each source. The clear UI makes it easy to make adjustments, view settings, and choose presets.

Each FX processor features tons of studio-quality reverbs and delays plus effects like chorus, tremolo, flanger, and sweep filter. Fine tune each effect with advanced parameters and EQ.

 

Total Freedom

Complete wireless control via iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows devices means you can mix from anywhere in the venue on up to 20 devices. Wireless control also means you can put the mixer itself where it makes the most sense for application.
