I twice fixed missing channels in my DL32R by pulling the ribbon cables and treating the connectors with Deoxit.  Be aware that there are two connection points at each end of a ribbon.  One is the connector pin that mates to the connector pinon the board (that one's obvious), and the other is where the cable connector has been crimped onto the cable.  The invisible end of the pin is shaped like a V and pierces the plastic ribbon to contact its conductor inside the ribbon.  So check that the ribbon cable is well-seated into its connector, and pushing the ribbon firmly against the connector can help.

I am very disappointed that Mackie would use a ribbon cable for sensitive analog signals.  A ribbon cable is designed to convey discrete 5V/0V digital levels for computer bus applications.   Sure it may work, but clearly it is not reliable.  I lost a lot of confidence in Mackie when I saw that.  But otherwise the DL32R is a great unit, so I'll keep it until I discover a functionally equivalent competitor.

Well another month gone by. I guess we all got a trick instead of a treat. A sad state of affairs.

I'm not aware of any external plugins that work in any DL mixer.  Pretty sure this is a recording tool.

I talked to Mackie support.  They were very helpful.  The Avid/Protools bundle is available here:

https://my.avid.com/get/pro-tools-first?cprcde=aBk5A000000k9c6SAA

You need to the have the serial number of your mixer and he said it was free.

Not sure if any of this will be helpful with my DL1608 as the tech said it was mostly for recording. I was hoping there would be in plugins that I could load into the mixer.  But I'm thinking that's not the case. I'll look into it this evening.

I found the following information on the Mackie DL website, "Did you purchase a DL1608 on or after September 12, 2019? Get your free AvidŽ software here."   The link takes you to a AVID page where you can create an account.  And it asks for the serial number of your DL mixer.  I haven't had time to try it.  But I didn't find anything on the Mackie website for those of us that bought our DL before September 12, 2019.

On Sept. 12 Mackie announced a joint project with Avid to provide 23 plug-ins to most of their mixer line including the DL series. Is this more marketing BS? Nothing since the announcement is available on their Website. Anyone here find the mystery vaporware or will it take the next two years for it to arrive if ever? Here is their Blog.  https://mackie.com/blog/mackie-partners-pro-tools-first

Analog Mixers / 1202vlz recording setup
« Last post by ZipSnipe on October 29, 2019, 01:48:28 PM »
Hello all, was wondering if someone could help me set up my mixer for recording into a computer. What I really want is the ability to play through monitors and hit a switch and listen through my headphones. I am also will have a sampler that will need to be able to record(sample) and play back through the mixer. I do not mind recording 2 tracks at a time which is all i can do with my interface.

Here is my gear setup now.

pc (running FLStudio, Ableton and Pro Tools)

Focusrite 2i4 interface

1202vlz

Roland mc505

Roland sp808

Korg Electribe

two headsets one with microphone and a handheld mic

Is this possible with the 1202 vlz ?  Would love to see some diagrams

I too have had a number of times when I attempted to move a fader and it glowed but immediately quit glowing,
so I had to click on the fader 4-6 times then finally I could move it. Rare, but that has happened to me.
