Master Fader - Three Main Views

Intuitive Navigation

Workflow is Everything

Fast, fluid navigation to all mixing functions is extremely important. That's why all of the powerful mixing of your DL mixer is centered around three main views: Mixer View, Channel View and Overview. Quickly swipe your way around the mixer, tap on an input or output for instant access to processing or get to any critical function instantly from the overview. It's digital mixing made simple. 

Master Fader - Access Limiting


Design Your Own Mix Experience

Every appliation and every user are different. Sometimes you need to constantly adjust every parameter and sometimes you just need a fader or two to get the job done. With Master Fader you get total control over it all. Show only the channels you want to see, create custom view groups and mute groups for quick control and even assign what parameters can be adjusted. It's like having a custom-designed mixer for your application.

Master Fader - Split Screen

The Benefits of iOS

Better Mixing with Integrated Tools

Master Fader features tight integration with Apple's iOS platform to deliver an unmatched mixing experience. And, with each iOS update, Master Fader gets better. For instance, just take a photo of the band members with your iPad and assign it to their channel for instant recognition on a busy night. Use split screen multitasking so you can see your sheet music and adjust your controls without switching apps. Instantly import/export shows and backups using the integrate share center or even view Master Fader in your native language. Master Fader is tightly integrated so you can work smarter and faster.
