We’ve received a few questions about Mackie DL Series mixers and the new lightning connector Apple is using on the iPad (4th generation), iPhone 5 and iPad mini.
Mackie DL Series mixers currently support full wireless control using the new iPad (4th generation) and iPad mini. Additionally, you can use Apple’s 30-pin to Lightning adapter cable to dock these newer devices. The iPad 2 is still sold new directly from Apple and is fully supported for use with DL mixers. That being said, we are working hard on a comprehensive solution for converting a DL mixer over to the Lightning connector and will release it as soon as possible. However, due to licensing restrictions, this is all we can say right now. Rest assured that all DL mixers will soon be able to support wired connection using Lightning without an adapter.
As more details become available, we will be sure to update you here and also on Mackie’s Facebook page.
Thanks for your support!
