Mackie’s DL32R delivers 32-channels of digital mixing with convenient direct-to-drive multi-track recording/playback, new Onyx+ recallable microphone pre-amps, in an ultra-compact 3U rackmount design. The DL32R is controlled wirelessly with the Master Fader control app for iPad, freeing sound engineers to mix from any location in a venue.
Now, the DL Dante Expansion Card adds 32×32 channels of network audio I/O, allowing the DL32R to be connected to any Dante-powered AV network. Dante features include: automatic discovery of devices; simple graphical audio routing; incredibly low latency; and flawless interoperation with hundreds of Dante-enabled products. With the flexible IO patching in the DL32R, you can route Dante signals to any channel input, and send any of the mixer’s outputs to the Dante network.
According to Ben Olswang, Mackie Senior Product Manager. “Dante allows the DL32R to connect to hundreds of Dante-enabled audio devices with the seamless interoperability and ease of use that are hallmarks of Mackie products. Dante software is simple and complete, and takes the mystery out of networking while delivering incredible performance.”
“The Mackie DL32R has had amazing market response, and we are incredibly pleased to add Mackie to the list of our 190 plus manufacturers using Dante,” adds Lee Ellison, CEO of Audinate. ” The DL32R with Dante brings Mackie sound and usability to AV networking, allowing users to easily deliver audio where they need it, when they need it, with no compromises.”
The DL Dante Expansion Card ships with a license for Dante Virtual Soundcard software, allowing direct recording/playback of up to 64 channels of audio from any Dante network to a PC or Mac computer.
