Mackie DL16S Overview

The Mackie DL16S is a 16-channel wireless digital live sound mixer with integrated Wi-Fi, well suited for musicians, engineers, clubs, bars, coffee shops, and more. The mixer features 16 Onyx+ recallable preamps available on 8 XLR inputs and 8 combo XLR-1/4" inputs, while 8 fully-assignable outputs are available on XLR connectors, plus there is a dedicated 1/4" headphone output.

The DL16S offers sophisticated signal processing with a 4-band PEQ, HPF, gate, compression, and an RTA/spectrograph for each of the 16 input channels. Each of the 13 output busses offer a 4-band PEQ, HPF/LPF, a 31-band GEQ, compressor/limiter, alignment delay, and RTA/spectrograph. Additionally, there are six VCAs, six mute groups, and four stereo FX processors with professional-quality reverb, delay, chorus, flange, and more.

The steel construction and large rubber corners ensure the DL16S can handle the rigors of on-the-road wear and tear. The integrated handle provides an easy carry option for quick deployment, while the built-in Wi-Fi antenna allows you to connect to the DL16's network for seamless wireless control. For greater range, an Ethernet connector allows you to connect directly to a wireless router or network switch.

The Mackie DL16S utilizes the Master Fader control app, which operates on an iOS or Android device, as well as Mac and Windows computers (with the soon-to-be released Master Fader 5.1). Navigate quickly with the overview and view groups, and quickly set up channels with factory and user presets, plus recall Onyx+ mic preamp settings. Up to 20 devices can be connected, allowing musicians to create their own headphone mix, while the Access Limiting setting prevent unwanted adjustments for the FOH engineer.

The integrated 16x16 USB 2.0 audio interface allows you to record the show for a later mixdown or perform a virtual sound check, plus you can play intermission music, backing tracks, and more directly into a dedicated stereo return channel. With a low cost and a high channel and feature count, the Mackie DL16S makes for a budget-friendly yet professional studio recording environment.
