Amazing unit!

Benni D., 30.08.2014
As a person who runs a studio using both digital and analogue equipment, I really enjoy the hands on feeling of physical equipment, rather than digital plugins etc.

The one thing missing from my set up was a way to mix my tracks within my DAW, with the same hands on approach that much of my hardware has. I hate having to stare at a screen and use a mouse to make big changes to my mix through levels or inserts - so the Mackie Control Universal Pro seemed like an ideal piece of equipment to put the control of my mix sessions into my hands!

The MCU Pro is great, I absolutely love it and would consider it one of the best pieces of equipment that I own! Everything is able to be controlled easily in front of you and you rarely even have to look at your computer screen. It drastically increases and improves your work flow, allowing you to control a huge amount of features with fades, knobs and button combinations.

The MCU Pro is really well built - strong and tough, and is very pleasing to look at! It's extremely easy to set up with your DAW - I set up the MCU Pro and two extender units with Logic Pro 9, Logic Pro X and Pro Tools 11 in under half an hour, and had it working perfectly!

Cannot recommend this unit enough!

Great piece of luxury

07.07.2016
This controller is great, the first one I have owned, I have the extender too, and considering an extra extender!

It is a luxury really, not a necessary piece of equipment, but great to mix with.
I use about 30-40 tracks in Pro Tools, then put them into sub groups to mix on to 16 tracks with the controller.
But I think I will opt for 24 soon.
Though not cheap!

So, I kept it for 2 weeks and realised it was a waste of space, Once I even forgot to turn it on when I was recording/mixing!
So I sent it back.

Thomas kindly face me a refund, excellent service, thank you.
Advice if you are thinking of this or ANY DAW controller, forget it, learn the computer keyboard shortcuts, theres no need for a DAW controller, whats next? A DAW controller controller!?
