Everyone who is in the production game knows the name Mackie. They have been around for years now and they have announced their new type of studio mixer controller that can be built upon to add as many channels as the user likes or gives newbies an option to expand their channel count as money and time goes on...Introducing the Mackie MCU Pro and MCU Pro XT. The Mackie MCU Pro can be used with virtually any MIDI production software (such as Pro-Tools and Logic) and has all the functionality of an analog style studio mixer. You can map several buttons and knobs for the functionality you need. The best part of all is that when you need more than the 8-channel control functions at a time, you can purchase another block of 8-channels by purchasing the MCU Pro XT (or extension). You can add as many of these MCU Pro XT units as the producer desires. Read the official press release and link for more information...
