What's most obvious about the dXb is its dual touch-screens. These screens are really the heart of the mixer and its main interface. They display all the things you'd expect from a top-of-the-line digital desk, like levels, routing, dynamics processing, surround panning and effects. But what's not evident until you use the dXb is how well they do so.
Everything about the dXbfrom its touchscreen user interface to its 100mm Penny + Giles optical fadershas been designed for the precise response and intuitive operation more commonly associated with analog buttons and switches, not "virtual" ones. So this may be the first digital desk that doesn't require an owner's manual to use (we still include one, mind you). Everything works just as you'd expect, with no function that isn't completely natural and logical as you get to work. And both the touchscreens and the mouse can be used simultaneously, so you can use the control that works best for the task at hand.
What's so different about the dXb? Plenty. Like selectable 192k operation. Streaming audio via FireWire I/O cards. The ability to route any input to any output. Dynamics and EQ processing on every channel. Powerful surround mixing. The ability to run select VST plug-ins internally. A full card cage on the rear panel for massive expandability. Integrated Mackie Control Universal mode for seamless control of Pro Tools, Logic and many other DAW applications. And that's just scratching the surface. We designed the dXb to not only meet your needs now, but for years into the future.
