New stuff coming
« on: June 10, 2018, 04:06:41 PM »
I wonít be specific. I donít want to get anyone in trouble. Letís just say Mackie is finally going to give us what a lot of people have asked for.

Without getting anyone into trouble do you have a guess on the time frame?

The reason I asked is that Mackie and most other companies usually announce product at one of the major shows. Nothing major until NAMM 2019. This would break with tradition.

The usual carrot routine for product announcement by Mackie.

If we can throw around conjecture, based on the top voted things on the Mackie Uservoice - probably MF will finally port over to systems other than iOS.    New DL products - I would say Mackie is sorely missing a "stage-box" type device in the DL family.   I use my 1608 solely as an interface, the iPad has never been docked.  I'd love to see a 16-channel rackmount or compact box style setup with an internal power supply!!!

That will only happen if Uli lets the X-Air series be re-branded by Mackie. ;D

They've had some pretty lackluster rollouts the past year. I'll tell you one thing. If any of the new DL line don't have recallable preamps and fall into a price point near the Behringer XR or Midas ML18, forget it. It's a non-starter. I have to say, that XR18 is the best $600 investment I've made. I use the thing all the time and have had zero problems with it.

Sounds like a MF software release only. Maybe a hint on the next DL series like the DL32 intro.

I missed that tidbit. It's not on their official site AFAIK. Maybe the Android is for their ProDX16  ;D
