Comments about Mackie DL806 8-Channel Digital Live Sound Mixer with iPad Control:

Most of the reviews already point out the great things that this board does... clean inputs, great sound, ease of use, excellent pre-sets, etc. but I would like to comment on the one item where it is sadly lacking. Wireless functionality. Why would you create such a fine piece of equipment and make it so that you have to buy another piece of gear in order to have the wireless functionality? Yes, I know this is written in the write up, but you had to look close. What jumped out to me was "wireless", just like the competition's board. I had to assume that Mackie would have (at the least) the same wireless capabliltiy but it was not until after I got it in my house and tried to set it up that it became apparent that this would not work out of the box. Could have been great and five star. Just sad and easily remedied in the initial design stage.

Absolutely Perfect for Our Needs!

Comments about Mackie DL806 8-Channel Digital Live Sound Mixer with iPad Control:

I bought this for a small church. We had a Peavey combo amp / mixer that worked just fine, except it was up in the choir loft at the front of the church. No matter how I set it up before the service, either the preacher would be too loud or too soft. I heard no end of complaints. I found the Mackie at GC and thought it might be just what we needed so I bought it. I used it this past Sunday, and it was AWESOME! The unit is up front, and I sat on the back row with my iPad using the app. If the preacher got loud, I pulled the sound level slider down some. When he put on his "Batman voice", I pushed it back up. All the little old deaf ladies were happy! There seems to be a whole lot of capability in the unit, but I'm not a sound board expert so I'll leave that to someone else to write about. I AM going to figure out how to add reverb to the mix when the preacher is quoting God in the Bible during the scripture lesson!
