Comfortable working

Michael K. 542, 17.03.2013
I use the MCU Pro together with the free DAW software "Ardour 3.0" (for Linux) and would not want to miss this enrichment of my work.

The MCU Pro - seamlessly programming its functions - automatically adjusts itself to the DAW range with its mixer controller controls (level controller, pan controller, solo, mute switch, etc.), the counter, the drive buttons and the large scroll wheel, Software. MIDI-compatible (via MIDI or via USB cable), it can be explained by means of instructions on the net. As soon as the connections are established, you can start directly. Fine.
In addition, the MCU Pro brings in comfortable numeric buttons, which can then be assigned freely in the case of "Ardour" to the functions of the software. The mouse and especially the computer keyboard can then be left out for many work steps.

The processing is very good: the case is made of solid metal, and to find more saturated mixer controllers, one would have to spend according to my impression much more money.
Maybe Mackie has some time a budget to translate the instruction manual into German - but also the English is, if synonymous fairly narrow, content in order. In addition to the inscriptions on the housing, there is a collection of templates, which already carry the label for different DAW software programs - simply place the appropriate template on the MCU housing.

An iTüpfelchen might have been, the blue LCD display above the control trains somewhat larger area to put - in order to show the track names, functions of the rotary knobs etc. not only in abbreviations. Also, instead of the multifunctional rotary knobs (below this blue display), the functions could be divided into several rotary knobs. But that would have been only (cost-relevant and consequently non-compulsory) luxury icing.

In general, this device can be used very well - it is not cheap, but it also offers something for money; And if you use anyway free software, you have automatically money for as beautiful things as for the Mackie MCU Pro.

Top part!

Rolf aus G., 15.03.2012
What to say to the controller? The part is top. I use it with Cubase 6.5 under Win7 / 64bit and once it is registered as a controller, the control folds perfectly. I used to use a Yamaha 01X, from which I had to separate severely, since I have not gotten it running under Win7. The change to the Mackie Control is no problem, frankly, it is almost the same! :-) The operation is even much easier, it is more an analogous feeling, since each controller has only one function, with the Shift key synonymous times two. Nice is also the Midi peripherals, 3 couples in and out, completely independent of it goes via USB into the PC. For Cubase / Nuendo and 4 additional sequencers is a template for sticking, on which one then finds the Cubase or other specific labels. Class!

All controls, fader (100 mm motor fader) and knobs are super-processed like the whole device. I can only recommend it!
