Mackie Control is a nine-fader (eight channels and master) MIDI controller that provides in-depth mixing, editing, automation, and navigational control for any supported digital audio workstation. The Mackie Control adheres to a compact, desktop-style design and offers a full range of professional-grade features and controls.
Mackie Control has eight channel strips, each of which includes a 100mm touch-sensitive motorized fader, mute, solo, and record arming buttons, Signal LED, a Channel Select button, and a V-Pot' that can be used to control panning, send levels, EQ, dynamics, and other DSP plug-in modules. Mackie Control also supports a full automation assignment section, edit buttons, Undo, Redo, and Save buttons, and a Shift Modifier that offers dual functionality for specific commands. Complete navigational control is provided in a tape-style transport with Jog/Shuttle wheel, Loop In/Out points, and timeline quick jump buttons. All controls live within a small, tabletop, analog-style control surface with a backlit LCD display that is comfortable and enjoyable to use.
The Mackie Control works seamlessly with Soundscape 32, Mackie's new 32-track DAW. In addition, mission-specific software "hooks" (or specialized commands) have already been written by Mark of the Unicorn (MOTU) and Steinberg to support the Mackie Control. DAW-specific Lexan overlays, that fit right over the master section, can be used to "personalize" the Control for Digital Performer, Nuendo or Cubase SX. Additional support and overlays will soon be available for software companies like Cakewalk, Syntrillium and others as announced.
