Powerful, intuitive processing and routing
The Mackie DL16S is equipped with 16 stereo-linkable input channels, each featuring a 4-band parametric equaliser, high-pass filter, gate, compression, and RTA/Spectrograph. On top of these are 13 output busses consisting of 6 stereo-linkable aux sends, 6 stereo-linkable subgroups, and a main L/R bus.
The DL16S's 4 stereo FX processors provide you with incredible built-in effects including reverbs, delays, choruses, flangers, and much more. The mixer allows you to take full advantage of its in-depth I/O routing with A/B sources for each channel, as well as assignable oscillators including pink/white noise and sine waves.
The DL16S's comp/gate and EQs feature both Modern and Vintage options, enabling you to achieve the sound you desire. On top of all of this, the Mackie DL16S also features 6 VCAs, and 6 mute groups.
Efficient wireless mixing
Equipped with 16 high-quality Onyx+™ re-callable mic preamps, the DL16S allows you to capture exceptional-quality audio in an enormous variety of applications and environments. Thanks to its built-in Wi-Fi networking and Master Fader™ multi-platform support, the DL16S does away with having a set FOH position - you can mix from absolutely anywhere.
Place the mixer anywhere on stage or in a rack, and take advantage of Mackie's industry-leading Master Fader™ control app to digitally recall each and every one of your settings, utilise the fully-loaded DSP on each of the Onyx+™ mic preamps, and intuitively control every aspect of up to 20 connected devices simultaneously. With this powerful hardware and software combination, multiple engineers can work from a single mixer to achieve truly astounding results.
Master Fader™ control app
The industry-leading Master Fader™ control application offers complete in-depth control over any DL series setup. Boasting rapid navigation with view groups and overview, as well as quick setup options with a plethora of factory and user-definable presets, the Master Fader™ app allows you to access channel processing, signal routing, and a huge range of incredible effects on the fly.
Master Fader™ allows you to export presets, shows, and even complete system backups via a selection of platforms, as well as offering complete offline operation. The application is available on iOS, Android, MacOS, and Windows, and receives easy and frequent updates to ensure the best possible user-experience.
Multi-track recording and playback
The DL16S is equipped with a powerful 16x16 USB 2.0 audio interface for use with MacOS and Windows PCs. This versatile addition allows you to easily record a show to mix-down later, as well as play-back intermission music, backing tracks, and plenty more straight into a dedicated stereo return channel.
Another unique benefit of the 16x16 interface is the ability to perform a virtual sound check with ease. This high-channel count recording solution is perfect for both live and studio applications, allowing you to utilize Mac or PC audio plug-ins no matter what situation you may be working with.
