Mackie has released two new consoles for the DJ and music production market. The d.Pro series comes in two- and four-channel models.
The d.2 Pro and d.4 Pro both come with FireWire and a variety of rear-panel connections including balanced XLR main outputs. The d.4 pro adds onboard analog filtering effects and genuine Onyx microphone preamps with 48v phantom power.
Mackie says the d.Pro’s most notable feature is their built-in 13x6 FireWire interface at 24 bit/96kHz — enabling these mixers to function as a multitrack recording source and a multi-input performance mixer when connected to any FireWire-equipped Mac or PC.
When plugged into you Mac you can start playing music from iTunes or use more sophisticated applications like Native Instruments Traktor Scratch.
The d.2 Pro costs $899.99 and the d.4 Pro costs 149.99.
