Mackie MCU PRO
Each of the eight channel strips includes a touch-sensitive 100mm Alps motorized fader in addition to mute, solo, and record arming buttons. Also included is a signal LED, a channel select button, and a V-Pot that can be used to control panning, send levels, EQ, dynamics, and other DSP plug-in modules. The control surface also contains a full automation assignment section, edit buttons, undo, redo, and save buttons, and a Shift modifier that offers dual functionality for specific commands.
Navigational control is provided in a tape-style transport with a jog/shuttle wheel, loop in/out points, and timeline quick jump buttons. The unit works seamlessly with most music software programs, and DAW-specific Lexan overlays that fit right over the master section can be used to personalize the control surface.
