Mackie also announced their Mackie Control C4 extender for the Mackie Control™. The new Control C4 is different than the current Mackie Control Extender™ in that it is designed specifically to gives hands on control of software effect plugins and virtual instruments. It features four backlit LED strips with eight V-knobs below each strip. It also has four shortcut buttons.
Little information was available about the C4 and the UAD-8 I/O at the NAMM show, so keep your eyes peeled for further developments in the coming months.
