    Mackie Unveils the DL32R Mixer Today

    As we previously teased this week, Mackie will be unveiling its latest iPad powered digital mixer today, the DL32R. During an online event, Mackie will be taking the wraps off its latest digital mixer with product manager Ben Olswang and a slew of special guests who will show you the mixer in action whilst revealing all of the features we are expecting, including a new version of its popular Master Fader app (thanks to some early site releases, we have some great shots of the new mixer complete with the updated Master Fader app). No word on whether the app will be customized solely for the new DL32R or will be available as a general version update for the DL1608 and DL806 digital mixers. We love this kind of gear and will be bringing you the latest as it is announced. Check out the official hardware description: “The DL32R delivers […]

    Mackie to Unveil the DL32R Digital Mixer on Wednesday

    If you’re an audio enthusiast, this week is going to rock your world… We brought you our hands on review and videos of the Mackie DL1608 iPad-powered mixer when it was released just a few years ago. Having used the mixer hands-on for all this time (complete with every version update of their Master Fader app), it’s not surprising that we’re excited to hear all the news about the upcoming DL32R completely remotely controlled mixer. The DL32R is a 32-channel mixer with what looks like 14 independent outputs, monitor and headphone control, as well as a brand new Master Fader app to control it all. The new mixer is a complete departure from its DL1608 and DL806 predecessors; how, you ask? It’s completely disconnected in its own rack-mounted design. You can position the core on stage with a band, or in the front of your house, (anywhere really) while you […]

    Mackie Updates Master Fader App for DL-Series Mixers

    The whole concept of apps is fantastic–especially when a simple update can bring new features that would have otherwise required a new piece of hardware. Enter Mackie’s Master Fader version 2.1. The new update brings a wealth of new features including a 4-band parametric EQ plus HPF/LPF on all outputs, as well as alignment delay to adjust to room temperature and multi language support. The Master Fader app update is free to those with the app and a compatible DL-series mixer from Mackie. Man, I love technology!

    Feenix Aria: The Gaming Headset for the Audiophile with Taste

    Despite becoming more and more common amongst gamers, headsets for gaming remain a market that is oversaturated with expensive, yet low-quality, products. Feenix, a specialist in gaming peripherals, is looking to change that with the release of their top-of-the-line headset, the Aria. Boasting studio-level audio quality, the Aria is a luxury gaming headset that is hoping to blow its competition out of the water with a sleek design and incredible sound quality. As an added bonus, the microphone is a separate clip-on device, allowing the Aria to double as regular headphones that you can use on-the-go or at home. The Aria is available for pre-order at FeenixCollection.com for $349, and for more information you can check the full release after the jump.

    One of the very first iPhone apps I can recall is Shazam – and the company is still going strong. Its latest app not only makes it easier to buy or stream content, it also gives you even faster access to lyrics and music videos, making the service way more useful and interactive than simply trying to figure out the name of the Metallica song that’s playing on SiriusXM. iOS users get the love right now, while Android users can expect the update shortly. Stay tuned…
