By PSW Staff • September 26, 2013 Mackie DL1608 (above) and DL806 mixers are now available with an Apple Lightning Connector Mackie has introduced two new versions of the DL1608 and DL806 digital mixers that include the Apple Lightning connector, enabling direct docking of the iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini (using the new iPad mini tray kit). While both of these iPad devices currently work with DL mixers wirelessly via Mackie’s Master Fader app, physical docking offers advantages. In addition to device charging, users will have access to 2-channel recording straight to the iPad and the ability to playback audio from nearly any iPad app straight to the DL mixer. The new DL1608 and DL806 featuring the Apple Lightning connector are currently in production and are shipping to dealers and distributors worldwide. The Master Fader Control App is available for free from the App Store on iPad or at www.AppStore.com/MackieMasterFaderControl, while the My Fader Control App for iPhone and iPod touch is available for free download from the App Store at www.AppStore.com/MackieMyFaderControl.
