"Your pictures are super-low resolution, so difficult to see the details, but if I see this correctly, you have the source A set to "None" for your channel. You'll need to assign channel 10 to a physical input (routing page), then you should get a gain slider.

Thanks Torsten, that makes perfect sense.  I'll check the I/O routing, but I'm sure you've hit the nail on the head.
Thanks
Rob

DL1608/DL806/DL32R/ProDX Mixers / Missing gain slider

Hi all

I came across an issue last night whilst mixing my band's in-ears that I haven't come across before and wondered if anyone could shed any light on the explanation.
The gain slider on one of the channels disappeared and I just couldn't figure out how to retrieve it.  I had all the channel inputs set to A (mic pre), so that wasn't the explanation.
I've tried to attach a couple of photos to show the problem; if I've been successful, it's channel 10, acoustic guitar.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance.

What Mackie make a mistake!....It's in their DNA. Let me give some examples starting with yours:
DL32R -------> DL32S
DL1608 -------> DL16S
FreePlay Personal ------> Freeplay Live, Thunp GO 8, Thump12BST.
If I checked further there would be more.
Introduce a winner and follow through with loser's is Mackie's way.
Time to stock up on spare DL32R's or find a replacement John.
Cheers

You have no idea how sad this makes me.....   It's going to be impossible for me to find another mixer that meets my needs.

3 Rack spaces with all 32 inputs on the front and all those glorious outputs (also on the front) for my IEMs...
Not to mention the matrix being so easy to reroute anything I want.

And finally - direct-to-disk recording multitrack that has worked so well for hundreds of shows for me....

What the heck else can a guy do to get all that? 

It's been a fun ride.... And I believe Mackie has made a huge mistake.

Hi WK,

    Good to hear you found a solution, and good to know about the higher-powered D-cells.

    Another option may be one of the Li battery rebuilders online.
Several are replacing older tech with newer, with more capacity, longer life, etc.
Just watch out for cheap, un-regulated fire starters!    : -O

Thanks and good health,  Weogo

The Mixing Station app allows full phone control of DL16s, DL32S,  X/M32,  X/MAir,  A&H QU, SQ, GLD, Avantis,  Soundcraft SI, VI .
Behr Flow-8 will run on a phone.
Some mixers have a full-featured computer/tablet app and a 'lite' app for basic controls on a small phone screen.
The 01V96 and some others could be controlled with screen mirroring.

« Last post by WK154 on May 20, 2022, 07:53:02 PM »
Back in 2015 Mackie introduced Freeplay Personal a very useful small venue sound system. I purchased one and after four years it needed a new battery. A simple solution was to order a new replacement Li-Ion  battery. Not so. Original it had options for AC power, D cell batteries or a custom Mackie Li-Ion battery. I opted for the Li-Ion power source. Although the claim was 10 hrs it only lasted about 7 hrs. After about 4 yrs it needed a replacement since it only lasted 1.5 hrs. Simple solution was to replace this, not so. The search provided replacements for 6800mAh and the original 5200mAh from an distributor called  Cameron Sino. ShenZen HENZENS Technology Co. Limited is listed as the manufacturer. The results was clear and repeated several times. The 6800mAh lasted 1.5 hrs and the 5200mAh lasted all of 1 hrs. I'm going to open up both units to find the truth but the results are clear. The Cameron Sino product is a SCAM. The original Mackie product is claimed to be available at Sweetwater but if the label shows CS send it back. I have since replaced this with a much better solution that has given me 18 hrs of usage and is rechargeable. EBL "D" batteries made from LD-NIMH (Low Discharge) rated at 10,000mAh. Caution previous "D" cells were AA cells in a "D" cell enclosure and a capacity of about 2200-2800mAh you don't want these. The cost is also lower at around $45 at Amazon vs $70 Li-Ion at Sweetwater. A  no-brainier.
Cheers

I downloaded mixing station last night on my iPad, and even in demo mode looks interesting.

On the sound craft, I know several years ago they were having numerous issues; not sure if they were ever addressed but seems to be a concern.

A good used MR18 or XR18 might be a good bet, and Mixing Station works on it as well. And no line lump...

Why not future-proof yourself and go with Dave Schumanns Mixing Station. It works for the DL32S. If you then change equipment you may not have to learn a new software package. As to a new version of MF good luck it hit the magic V5 in Mackie's world its the end of life. For more info see:
