Mackie Control Extender Pro
The Mackie Control Extender Pro is an eight-channel control surface extension for MCU Pro. Slightly narrower than a MCU Pro, the Extender Pro has all the channel strip features of the MCU Pro - without the master section. Depending on your music production software support, multiple Extender units can be used together with a MCU Pro to emulate a large-scale control surface with as many faders and pots as desired.
The Mackie Control Extender Pro comes with free software to help you get the most of your purchase. Included from September 12 2019 is Avid's Pro Tools First DAW with the exclusive Musician Collection which feature 23 Avid plug-ins, including the 304C Compressor and 304E EQ bundle. Pro Tools is widely used by professionals in the recording industry and you can get a slice of the quality with the entry-level Pro Tools First. Also included is Waveform OEM DAW and the DAW Essentials Collection from Tracktion which features 16 professional plug-ins for use with any DAW.
Here's what Mackie have to say about this extender
A control surface isn't much good if you have to keep looking up at your computer monitor to see the parameters you're tweaking. That's why we equipped the Mackie Control Universal Pro with a generous two-line, 55-character backlit LCD to display parameters like track name, channel metering, I/O assignments, plug-ins, EQ, dynamics or anything our various software partners want you to see.
MASTER OF YOUR APPLICATION
We know it doesn’t matter to you how many applications the Mackie Control Universal Pro works with — what matters is that it works with yours. While MCU Pro is compatible with all major music production software, it is also designed to specifically work with your application — just access your software’s parameters in the master section and you can get right down to action.
