PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT

Round out your C4 Pro with this Mackie product:


MCU Pro + XT


     

The Ultimate Controller for Logic, Reason, SONAR, Tracktion and more

FINGERS & SOFTWARE, TOGETHER AT LAST
Logic Pro, Reason, SONAR and Tracktion users are blessed with an abundance of fantastic virtual instruments and plug-ins. But as these plug-in effects and instruments become more powerful and complex, utilizing them to their fullest with a mouse and keyboard alone can be frustrating and time consuming. And cheap, one-size-fits-all controllers have their own set of problems—like sub-par components, painful MIDI mapping, and little if any visual feedback.

To truly tweak those sounds, you need premium hardware knobs... lots of them. Not to mention multiple LCDs to let you know exactly what you're tweaking as you tweak it. And you certainly don’t want messy MIDI mapping to trip you up. That's why we developed the Mackie Control C4 Pro: the ultimate plug-in controller that tightly integrates with Logic Pro, Logic Express, Reason, SONAR and Tracktion.

V-POTS: MORE THAN YOUR AVERAGE KNOBS
With its 32 V-Pots and four giant virtual "scribble strip" displays, the Mackie Control C4 Pro can simultaneously access and display up to 32 plug-in parameters without switching banks. The 32 push-button V-Pots are arranged in groups of eight directly below the four 55x2 backlit LCD displays, and surrounded by LED rings that display current knob positions. So you can actually see, in plain English, the software functions you are modifying. Function buttons beneath the displays and knobs allow you to select the arrangement of software parameters exactly how they show up on screen. This lets you set up the C4 Pro to tweak your software precisely the way you want—both on screen and on the control surface itself. This level of tight software/hardware integration and feedback simply isn't available on any other control surface, at any price.

READY FOR LOGIC 7 RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX
With full built-in Logic Pro 7 and Logic Express 7 support, the Mackie Control C4 Pro can display and control multi-channel parameters and act as a "quick fix" tool for fader and pan settings across 32 channels. In Channel Strip mode, the C4 Pro gives detailed input and feedback on a single channel's parameters, including EQ, plug-ins, sends, pan, output select, track mode, and surround diversity, to name just a few. Channel Strip mode also allows the entire control surface to be dedicated to all available parameters of plug-ins and virtual instruments, giving Logic Pro users superb control and visual feedback.

COMPLETE COMMAND OF REASON
Leave it to the Propellerheads to take control to this extreme—each instrument in Reason has a corresponding C4 Pro configuration dialed in, so you can easily learn the lay of the land and get right down to tweaking. Use C4 Pro to adjust effects parameters, control sequencers and take full command of mixers. Quickly switch between patches, and turn effects on or off with the touch of a button. And with the Reason Lexan overlay, you’ll always know what’s what.

LORD POWER OVER EXTERNAL MIDI GEAR, TOO
The C4 Pro and Mackie’s free C4 Commander Pro software are the ultimate combination for control of all your external MIDI instruments / effects. C4 Commander Pro and C4  Pro bring rotary command to your new or vintage MIDI hardware—opening up control possibilities once buried in layers of hard to navigate menus. Finally, keyboardists can adjust all the parameters of their favorite synths and sound modules, guitarists can tweak their guitar processors, and audio engineers can unleash the power of their rackmount reverbs, delays and MIDI modules, without ever leaving the mixing "sweet spot."

PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
The Mackie Control C4 Pro can greatly speed up your production environment, and can be used independently as a stand-alone module, or in concert with Mackie Control Universal Pro and Mackie Control Extender Pro.
