Is it legal?

Unless it is an agreement for a Pro Tools Mackie Powered, I see legal troubles for Mackie in the near feature...

This is indeed a good question. I would imagine not, but I would also think that a company the size of Mackie would let this information out without some basis for it.

I am assuming that the two companies are in discussion

They did it with M-Audio, so now they take over Mackie.

After all, the M in M-Powered could just as well be Mackie.

This, or they need a serious brandname that fits between M-Audio (not the best of reputations) and Digidesign.

Giving people choice and still make money of it!

I had not seen the video before my first post. Now that I saw the video, all I have to say is WOW!!!

definately Mackie is not directed by dumb people, así que Pro Tools M Powered now works with some mackie gear!!!! I am now convinced!

I am sure the dongle will be still required... wow great move by the 2 companies. And great publicity... cheap and functional! I puts something to say in people's mouth, with ultimately is the best publicity!

Wow great to see my old/colleague mate Woody's still up to his neck in Mackie lol!!! I would hope Mackie have an agreement, however they could be looking at the Apple/Psystar& itunes/Palm Pro cases and trying the same thing.... Good luck to 'em

Lol, now that is funny vid, AVID should end the propriety interface boll*x ASAP, PT LE is going down the toilet as users demand more flexibility these days. Free the DAW from the hardware!!

Mackie better starts to make their mackie controllers work with Logic 9.

It has nothing to do with Mackie. It is Logic/Apple that need to tweak THEIR software. It's like asking ACER to make their LCDs work with a given computer if that computer company changed from the standard connector.

Bout time!!! I hate Digi & M-audio hardware. I hope this becomes more of a trend & Avid drops their proprietary hardware philosophy!!!...or manufacturers just do it anyway. I don't really care. Good job Woody!

According to the Senior Sales engineer at Sweetwater, B. Lyons, this is NOT authorized and is reverse engineering.
