32-channel Wireless Digital Mixer with iPad Control

The Mackie DL32R is a 32-channel rackmounted digital mixer that lets you work from anywhere in any venue, using your iPad and Mackie's intuitive Master Fader control app. Packed with DSP, the DL32R has phenomenal-sounding EQ, gating, and compression/limiting onboard, as well as delay and reverb, giving you a tight, spectacular-sounding performance. In addition to its extensive live mixing capabilities, the DL32R also features direct-to-disk multitrack recording and playback, and functions as a USB 2.0 interface for your Mac or PC, so you can record the show and then mix it later in the studio. Make no mistake, the innovative DL32R lets you get into your mix like never before.

Ditch the Snake

Wireless mixing lets you control everything from anywhere

Leave that bulky snake at home! Because you can control the Mackie DL32R with your iPad, you can place it anywhere. Even if you put the DL32R onstage, you'll still be free to walk around the venue to fine-tune your mix, ensuring that every member of your audience experiences optimal sound quality regardless of where they're sitting. Also, because the DL32R supports up to 10 separate iOS devices at once, multiple engineers can work together from a single DL32R, making tweaks from their various vantage points. You can even set up personal monitor mixes for each performer that they can tweak via any iOS-compatible device. Back in the day, you would've needed miles of cable and a pile of submixers to pull off this much signal routing. Thankfully, with the DL32R in your rack, all you need is an iPad and your fingers!

  • Complete control from your iPad
  • Use 10 separate iOS devices at once
  • Set up personal monitor mixes

Plenty of I/O

All your connections are covered

With the Mackie DL32R in your live rig, you'll never run short of I/O. Providing you with 32 clean, full-sounding Onyx+ mic preamps, 14 fully assignable XLR outputs, a pair of TRS monitor outputs, and a stereo AES digital output, the DL32R has all of your I/O needs covered. On top of that, you also get 28 buses, 14 stereo-linkable aux sends, a headphone output, and a slot for a Dante Expansion Card. And best of all, the revolutionary DL32R gives you total recall of all your settings!

  • 32 recallable Onyx+ mic preamps
  • 14 fully-assignable XLR outputs
  • TRS monitor outputs and stereo AES output

Multitrack Recording and Playback

Direct-to-disk recording and USB 2.0 connectivity

One of the Mackie DL32R's most useful features is its multitrack recording and playback capabilities. You can either record wirelessly to a USB 2.0 hard drive or use the DL32R as an audio interface for your Mac or PC, giving you the ability to record straight to your DAW of choice.

  • Record directly to an external hard drive
  • Use as a USB 2.0 audio interface

Loaded with Onboard DSP

Create polished, professional-sounding mixes

Packed with DSP, the Mackie DL32R gives you 36 input channels with a 4-band parametric EQ, highpass filter, noise gate, and compression, as well as 28 output buses with a 4-band parametric EQ, highpass and lowpass filters, 31-band graphic EQ, compressor/limiter, and alignment delay. On top of that, you also get onboard delay and reverb! With three stereo FX processors with dedicated sends and returns, full I/O routing with A/B sources per channel, and modern and vintage options for each processor, you'll be churning out mixes that sound remarkably polished and professional.

  • Onboard EQ, filters, compression, delay, and reverb
  • Modern and vintage options for each effect

Powerful Digital Mixing

A large-format console in the palm of your hand

The Mackie DL32R gives you 32 channels of powerful digital mixing controlled wirelessly from the extremely intuitive Master Fader iPad app. With total wireless control over everything, including fully-loaded DSP and direct-to-disk multitrack recording and playback, the DL32R is designed for live sound engineers who demand professional quality and want the flexibility of wireless mixing. So, whether you work in a theater, house of worship, or concert hall — if you're serious about live sound, you owe it to yourself to check out the innovative DL32R by Mackie!

Game Changer

I have been working with this mixer for about a year. I use an Apple AirPort Extreme to connect. Once you learn the MasterFader App, this mixer will change your life. No exaggeration! It is a game changer. You will be able to differential yourself from the "old school" way of mixing an event. Working with the band on-stage -or- getting the front-of-house mix right is easier than ever. No more snakes, no more mixing tents, no more chatting on the PA with the musicians. On-Stage monitor mixing standing right next to the musician! Front-of-House mixing roaming the venue! Hear all of what the audience hears This mixer is reliable and the iPad App is easy to use. With the Apple WiFi Router, the connection is very stable. Yes, you are going to have to change your ways! Analog mixing with knobs and sliders with a wired mixer is not the future. If you are going to invest in digital - this is the mixer to get. GigAudio

great so far

I want to start by telling you all we have only used the DL32r for two gigs now so any problems we have in the future I will update it. We got this board on a Tuesday and our gig was on a Thursday and like a lot of bands out there we where very nervous about the switch from analog to digital. I was able to download the app a few days before I even got the board so I was up to date on how it should work and that helped a lot. We had a few problems with the hard drive playing music but with a call into Mackie they helped us out right away and we were up and running. We haven't had it long enough to run through everything this board can do so I can't comment on everything. In about 6 months after we have used it a bunch I will write another review. I know when I bought this thing I was really worried about the big switch to digital and I just wanted to say it went great. Just the fact that we can adjust our own monitor mixes and we don't need to run a snake or set up a board in the middle of the room is huge for our band. We save about a half hour every setup and sound check. And if your a band you know setup and sound check sucks. I always tell people that we don't charge to play music we charge to setup and tear down. Anyways this thing is awesome so far and I will update with any problems I run into. FYI I never write reviews but I really want people and bands to know what there getting on this one.

Most Flexible

I have owned the Behringer X32 prior to my DL32r and the immediate benefits are: I can place the Dl32r on stage and work it remotely from FOH or on the side. All 32 channels and 14 aux outputs are on stage meaning you don't need a snake. The software is amazing with a fiull view of all I/O ports as you slide the strip left or right however, you can set up several small views of selected channels. I have small views as: Active channel, Vocals, instruments, drums. As for muting, you can setup multiple mute groups that are always in view on my iPad. So I'm not sure what the user is complaining about. Best of all, if I turn off my iPad, the Fader App takes 2 second to re sync to the DL32r. I use not the cheapest wifi unit and have never suffered a drop in the wifi link yet. I'll add more later...


Our House of Worship sound has been tamed at last! The DL32R gives us incredibly clear, pristine performance on everything from vocals and instruments, to background and entry music. No chasing bad sound anymore from someone bumping the sound board. A huge plus to this system is no one without authorization can mess with the sound. Being a small church; we had quite a problem with children getting into the sound booth (I know right?) and messing with stuff, but no more! We are very excited and pleased with the performance of the DL32R!!!

Incredible flexibility

Our Church has bought it and have been using it for the last 3 months. Its been night and day, from darkness to the light!! We enjoy the flexibility it offers, having the capacity of having 32 digital inputs at our disposal but still have a small band feel to it. The system is just wonderful it has made a huge difference in our worship. I highly recommend this system to any church wether big or small, its worth the investment. Thank God for Mackie and for Sweetwater.
