At Musikmesse, Mackie Designs Inc. announced the newest member to the Mackie Control family, the Mackie Control C4. The Mackie Control C4 is a sophisticated plug-in and virtual instrument controller that provides four banks of eight V-Pots each, and four full-size displays for instant access to as many as 32 separate software parameters without the need for scrolling or bank switching.
"The C4 is the perfect addition to the Mackie Control family," said Mike Newman, director of product development at Mackie Designs Inc. "It's the perfect time-saving tool that plays on the same ideals as the Mackie Control by providing musicians, producers and audio engineers a tangible, analog-style interface for sophisticated plug-ins and virtual instruments."
The C4 also acts as a "quick-fix" tool for fader and pan settings across 32 channels, and can be used independently or with additional Mackie Control and/or Mackie Control Extenders.
The Mackie Control C4 ($1,099 MSRP) will be available at U.S. dealers in Q2, 2003, with European availability beginning in Summer 2003. At the time of release, C4 will be supported by MOTU Digital Performer and Emagic Logic Audio. Support from other Mackie Control software partners will follow soon after.
