Mackie’s modular Axis digital mixing combines the company’s 32-channel DL32R digital mixer and DC16 control surface with full Dante integration in a new a live sound solution.

Mackie Axis Digital MixingThe combination of the DL32R digital mixer and DC16 control surface delivers wireless mixing – integrated from the ground up – with 32 remote-controllable Onyx+ mic preamps and 16 outputs paired with built-in DSP. The system is suited to medium and large channel count live sound production and system integration applications. The system relies on Dante for communication between the DL32R mixer and DC16 control surface, enabling additional networking capability for professional applications.

Visual feedback is provided by large, full-colour channel displays. Each screen delivers critical channel information with clear functional colour differentiation, crisp icons and ultra large, highly-legible fonts. This is in addition to the high-resolution screens of the host iPad, which is at the heart of the Axis system.

The Axis design provides a unique surface-to-wireless workflow, allowing users to switch between DC16’s hardware controls and wireless mixing. This is possible via the integrated SmartBridge, which can house up to three iPad devices, delivering simultaneous control over multiple channels and innovative smart sensing that knows when an iPad is in place. SmartBridge provides customisation over each iPad view with both a fixed and history mode that creates workflow flexibility.

The Mackie Axis system includes the DL32R Rackmount Digital Mixer, the DL Dante Expansion Card and the DC16 Digital Control Surface. Touring and install packages are available, including accessories like an 80m Cat5e reel, DC16 road case and more, depending on the package.

‘Axis is an incredibly forward-thinking, professional digital mixing solution,’ says Mackie Senior Product Manager, Ben Olswang. ‘The workflow is amazingly fast, with tremendous visual feedback and customisation. With a completely modular design, flexible multitrack recording and a focus on smart workflow, this system is clearly ahead of the curve. Better workflow through innovation. This is the goal of Axis.’
