Get Hands-on Control over Your DAW!The Mackie Control Universal Pro control surface completes your music production software to give you ultimate hands-on control of your mix. Nine motorized, touch-sensitive Alps faders, eight V-Pots and more than 50 master buttons let you tweak parameters to your heart's content. Unlike generic MIDI controllers, the MCU Pro employs a sophisticated communication protocol that delivers ultra-precise control, makes setup easy - no mapping required - and enables you to see your mix in action with real-time visual feedback via the huge backlit LCD and eight LED rings.
Mackie Control Universal Pro Expandable Workstation Control Surface at a Glance:
Expandable Touch-Sensitive Control Surface with 100mm Motorized Faders
The Mackie Control Universal Pro's 100mm touch-sensitive Alps motorized faders give you accurate, smooth, real-console feel, bringing the hands-on vibe of analog to your state-of-the-art DAW productions. The same fader set is also featured on the seamlessly-integrated Mackie Control Extender Pro and expansion module, which also shares the same channel strip functions.
Proprietary Mackie communication protocol for seamless music production software integration
Mackie's proprietary communication protocol lets you get the most out of your software, giving you precise control over setups and control surface assignments - no mapping required! In addition to the unit's versatile faders and 50 dedicated buttons, accurate V-Pot rotary encoders allow you to manipulate software, plug-in effects, and virtual instruments. And the backlit LCD screen lets you easily monitor your mixes in real time.
DAW- and MIDI-friendly
An onboard USB MIDI interface is included for direct connection to Mac or PC, as well as up to 3 additional pieces of external MIDI gear (with even more control capability when integrated with the Control C4 Pro expansion module). Software-specific Lexan overlays are also included, allowing the Control Universal Pro to be easily adapted to your DAW.

I have used the euphonix/avid artist mix series, they are made of plastic and the protocol is very unstable, and don't really look like a console. close [-]
Rocks My Socks
by MIDICancer from Portland, OR USAAfter having used the Behringer BCF2000 and dealing with the terrible issue of getting it set up with FL Studio I decided to bite the bullet and go for the model it was emulating.

FL Studio users, if you've been looking for a control surface for mixing and general use look no further. This is a beast.

The operation of the board is smooth, and intuitive, the jog wheel is weighted and has a great feel as you work your way around the song to multiple locations. I've used a few other DAW controllers, Tascam, Alesis, Avid and the MCU is a wonderful tool, I have a friend that uses an SSL mid-priced board and he was blown away of the operation of the MCU! Also the people at Sweetwater are great!! Very helpful professionals Overall very impressive DAW Controller.. close [-]

by Doug Allen from Houston, Tx USAAs I started my studies of music production at our local community college, my fellow students and I were taught signal flow, tracking and mixdown on a 24 track board. When I commenced building my hom... read more [+]e studio, funds were tight and I reasoned I could mix "in the box" for a while and see how things progressed. I produced about 80 tracks then was able to get the MCU Pro. What a paradigm shift! The "hands on" feel of working with a board plus the wonderful DAW control has boosted my production tremendously. This definitely was the missing link in my studio that ties it all together for me and facilitates a professional workflow. Most heartily recommended. close [-]
