Mixer Becomes a DAW Controller


Buying Choices
EDIROL’s M-16DX is a powerful combination of digital mixer, multi-i/o computer interface and production console packed with effects and features. But with its latest v2 software the unit has now become a software control surface as well.
The free v2 software includes Cakewalk SONAR and Apple Logic modes that enable these powerful DAWs to be controlled out of the box with the knobs on the hardware assigning to their equivalent software controllers, all at the touch of a button. In Logic, for example, the hardware M-16DX appears in the software’s list of compatible controllers and the equivalent controls are tied together automatically once it’s selected. In both SONAR and Logic the controls are assigned in an incredibly logical way so that users will quickly be able to navigate around their chosen software with the EDIROL hardware.
The new v2 software can also be used to control all other software that has a MIDI learn facility such as Reason, Ableton Live and many soft synths. This enables any user to make full use of the 54 hardware knobs and numerous assignable buttons on the mixer surface.
The software update also includes expansion of the Scene Memory function with the number of memories doubling from 8 to 16 and now each memory is editable whilst loaded. Pricing and Availability:
