MCU PRO

Online

Without Mackie Control Universal Pro, your music production software just isn't complete. MCU Pro rounds out your softwares functionality to deliver the ultimate in hands-on command. In fact, your software was designed with MCU Pro in mind. Developers access the MCU Pro via its unique communication protocol - pioneered by Mackie - and determine precisely how MCU Pro works for you. That means MCU Pro integrates with your software like no other hardware controller. Say goodbye to sub-par responsiveness to your mix adjustments, trying to remember which knobs are assigned to which parameter, and the tedious process of MIDI mapping. With MCU Pro, you get deep, intuitive control of mix and plug-in parameters, real-time visual feedback and set up is plug and play - without any MIDI mapping whatsoever!

And MCU Pro goes far beyond simple faders and transport controls - it gives you the most comprehensive feature set on the market. With nine 100mm Penny + Giles optical touch-sensitive faders, a full-sized backlit LCD and V-Pots for fast tweaking, MCU Pro is the only desktop control surface that can truly make your music production experience complete.

With optional expandability via Mackie Control Extender Pro and Mackie Control C4 Pro, MCU Pro is also the only software control surface that can grow with your studio.

The problem has and has always been the LCD display within a year it will dim to 25%. Wish they'd fix that.

The MCU Pro is the best addition I have made to the studio for workflow. It is plug and play with any DAW software. It is a beautiful thing. I only gave it 9's since everything can be improved.
