Mackie has updated their Master Fader app to version 4.0. The control app for their DL32R, DL1608 and DL806 digital mixers now sport several new features and enhancements. Leading the new feature list is the addition of an RTA on each output. Users can now view a real time RTA beneath any output’s PEQ or GEQ.
Master Fader 4.0 also marks the integration of iPad, iPhone and iPod touch support within a single app, doing away with the need for the separate My Fader app for personal monitor mixing. Now, Master Fader recognizes which device type being used and sets the features accordingly. Using a single app for all supported devices offers easier management and updating for users. Master Fader v4.0 also adds support for the new, larger iPad Pro. With more visual real estate, users can see more faders, bigger controls and even finer resolution.
DL1608 and DL806 users will benefit from a completely updated take on recording and playback. Now, users can install, see and access all of their recordings direct from Master Fader. This also allows for direct playback from Master Fader so users can audition their recordings or use them immediately for intermission music, room tuning and more. Exporting these tracks is also now simpler, taking advantage of Master Fader’s integration with the iOS share sheet. DL32R users will see the addition of a built-in oscillator, perfect for testing system functionality, ensuring hookups are correct and general diagnosis. Route the oscillator’s signal (pink noise, white noise or sine wave with selectable frequency) to any channel or physical output.
New to Master Fader is the ability to easily copy and paste channels and mixes. This provides flexibility sure to save time and improve organization. Master Fader now also has a completely scalable UI, including the ability to use the new Split View in iOS 9. Perfect for onstage musician’s controlling their own mix, users can easily see both Master Fader and things like a set list, lyrics or music sheets without having to switch apps. There’s a new quick assign function to make assigning channel ID easier than ever. There’s an update to access limiting that completely hides limited features, so installers can create a custom workflow for their customers. And, with tighter integration with iOS, things like importing and exporting get better, allowing easy export to a huge range of locations including the iCloud Drive, Microsoft One Drive, Dropbox and more.
Master Fader v4.0 is available now for immediate download from the App Store.
