The newest version of Mackie’s Master Fader app, v4.5, is now available. The app lets users control the Mackie DL32R, DL1608 and DL806 mixers—and now has support for the Mackie AXIS Digital Mixing System. Master Fader v4.5 is packed with new features and enhancements, including a new advanced control section and the number one request from users: all-new reverbs. Adding another great tool for live sound mixing, a Spectrograph is now available alongside the RTA. A spectrograph is a great visual tool to help balance volume across the audible spectrum. In addition, the upgraded RTA/Spectrograph tool is now also visible on every input channel for added accuracy when dialing in a channel EQ.

Other feature additions include new factory presets for all EQ, dynamics and FX, offering a starting point for users of any level. New metering ballistics choices are now available, including the ability to choose how long the meter holds an RTA peak level. And, rounding out the major feature upgrades is the inclusion of the FX return EQ when saving an FX preset. This is just one of the many time-saving features that Master Fader offers.

Master Fader v4.5 is available for immediate download from the App Store at
