DL16S/DL32S First adopters experiences
« on: October 12, 2018, 08:31:47 PM »
Since no information was given regarding Beta testing of these products Welcome to the Beta testing program by Mackie. The yet to be posted V5.0 version for Master Fader is then in fact a Beta version just like V1.0 for the DL1608. Since it covers a totally new approach by also dealing with Android it is clearly a  new version of Master Fader. Hopefully Mackie will be on top of fixing the bugs promptly not as in the past. For those of you that have the hardware you might inquire when the Warranty period will start since you only received a partial product..

Copied and then removed from the other thread -

I fretted with myself over going with the "better value" from Behringer or the "better product" from Soundcraft, but given my usage model (playing bass and running sound from the stage 10-20 times per year) I didn't want to have to relearn an iOS mixing platform from scratch in the heat of battle so I went with what I knew.   Because of this, I'm both anxious and eager to see how MF5.0 works.   I've also been using a DL1608 for several years now, but have never ever used it with the iPad docked - it's only ever been a stage box.   To now have that functionality in a smaller form factor, with a more rugged build and a built-in power supply makes me quite happy.  No more TRS/XLR adapter cables for my monitors, either!  I'm eager to see how it works as a recording interface, as well - I have a spare laptop that I can load up with Reaper (or they include a license for Tracktion) and do live capture and pre-recorded sound check; I know that users of the rest of the brands have done this for several years, but it's nice to finally have that as well.
