Mackie Control Extenders Get Steinberg Support
Unversal Control + 2 Extenders

The Mackie Universal Control system has been a real eye opener to many DAW users. The level of hardware control was until recently only available to real high-end systems. Mackie have changed all this with their widely adopted Mackie Control protocol. The basic 9-fader unit can be enhanced with additional Extender modules enabling large control surfaces to be built up for ultimate dedicated control. Sadly, not all software has been instantly compatible with the Extenders but Version 2.2 has just of both Cubase SX/XL and Nuendo now support them. "Steinberg users will now be able to add more faders to their existing Mackie Control Universal setups, which gives them the ability to build a large-scale console interface to control the same great workstation they already know and love," commented Dan Moore, Product Manager for the Mackie Control Universal. "Adding Extenders to the Mackie Control Universal provides and even greater level of immediate accessibility to parameters previously available only by using the "Bank" and "Channel" buttons with a single controller." The Mackie Control Universal is a nine-fader master control surface with nine touch-sensitive Penny and Giles motorized faders and extensive software integration for a growing family of DAWs that includes Emagic Logic Audio, Digidesign Pro Tools, Steinberg Nuendo and Cubase SX/SL, MOTU Digital Performer, RML Labs SAW Studio, Adobe Audition, and many others. The Mackie Control Universal Extender is a channel extension for Mackie Control Universal that offers all the channel strip features of the Mackie Control Universal - only without the master section. So, all we need now is for Apple to build-in support for Logic and we're all happy.. For information about the Mackie Control Universal and Mackie Control Universal Extender visit:
