Computers are nothing new to today's DJ, but as more and more laptops turn up in the DJ booth, the one thing missing is an easy digital connection between the DJ mixer and computer. Now that is a thing of the past. With the Mackie d.Series FireWire option card, the d.2 mixer becomes the world's first DJ mixer to offer direct streaming of 24-bit/96kHz audio files to and from your Mac or PC.
The FireWire card for Mackie's d.Series mixers lets you drop media from an amazing array of applications: Traktor, Live, iTunes, Windows Media Player, and more with incredibly high sound quality--all through a single FireWire connection. Plus, Mackie throws in Mix Vibes Pro 6 and Mackie Tracktion 2 Music Production Software, making the d.2 one powerhouse DJ workstation.
Easy Installation and Operation
It only takes a few seconds to install the FireWire Card, turning your Mackie d.Series DJ Mixer into a powerful 24-bit/96kHz digital audio interface. Now you can send and receive computer-based audio without any additional converter boxes or hardware, just a single FireWire cable. Not only does FireWire provide excellent monitoring via audio software and plug-ins, the sound is awesome.
Mix Vibes Pro 6
Specially-marked boxes of the d.Series FireWire Card include Mix Vibes Pro 6 as an added bonus. Mix Vibes Pro 6 is a supercharged DJ software suite that allows the operation of up to four virtual vinyl/CD turntables at the same time--and it has a killer 16-pattern sampler. Mix Vibes Pro 6 can also handle all your VST and DirectX effects and supports the largest range of controllers available on the market--you can even run multiple controllers at the same time.
Podcasts, Live Sets, and More
The d. Series FireWire card allows you to record sets from the audio mixer directly to your computer without any additional hardware. This enables you to control mics, turntables, CD devices, drum machines, sound modules, etc., all from a single location. You can create your own mix-CDs, produce podcasts, or work on one of countless other projects you will think of for the FireWire-equipped d.Series DJ Mixer--it's that versatile. Mackie even throws in their popular Tracktion 2 Music Production Software package which makes it easy for even beginners to crank out one masterpiece after another.
The Mackie d.Series Premium VCA Mixers with FireWire Option is the next step in the evolution of the DJ mixer.
