[01:52] A quick overview of the Mackie AXIS system


AXIS is a flexible, modular digital mixing system with unmatched speed, visibility and customization. 

Mackie AXIS Delivers Speed


AXIS delivers a workflow that is built around speed. Built around the innovative workflow of Master Fader, DC16 control surface provides instant access to everything. Every control and every channel is instantly accessible with just the push of a button. Adjust your selected channel's key controls or dive in to the deepest parameter. Navigate like never before with view groups and a mix selector that provide faster navigation compared to traditional "banking" approaches. 

Mackie AXIS Delivers Visibility


AXIS is focused on incredible visual feedback at all levels. Large, high-resolution channel screens let you see it all at a glance, improving workflow unlike any other console in this category. DC16 uses full-color, backlit TFT screens with variable brightness control to deliver more critical channel information, more functional differentiation and large, extremely legible fonts sizes and icons. Add in the immense screen, touch-sensitive screen space of up to three iPads and it's clear that only AXIS can provide this level of visual feedback to improve your workflow.

Mackie AXIS Delivers Customization


All applications (and users) are different. System integrators and production companies need ultimate flexibilty to create the right workflow for their applications. With AXIS, the level of customization allows you to create the perfect mix environment for any install or production. View only the channels you want to see. Choose which controls get immediate access. Limit controls for volunteer engineers. Create the ideal workspace for the application with AXIS.
