The easily expandable Mackie Control Universal Pro control surface completes your music production software to give you ultimate hands-on control of your mix. Without Mackie Control Universal Pro, your music production software just isn’t complete. MCU Pro rounds out your software’s functionality to deliver the ultimate in hands-on command. In fact, your software was designed with MCU Pro in mind. Developers access the MCU Pro via its unique communication protocol — pioneered by Mackie — and determine precisely how MCU Pro works for you. That means MCU Pro integrates with your software like no other hardware controller. Say goodbye to sub-par responsiveness to your mix adjustments, trying to remember which knobs are assigned to which parameter, and the tedious process of MIDI mapping. With MCU Pro, you get deep, intuitive control of mix and plug-in parameters, real-time visual feedback and set up is plug and play — without any MIDI mapping whatsoever! And MCU Pro goes far beyond simple faders and transport controls — it gives you the most comprehensive feature set on the market. With nine 100mm Penny + Giles optical touch-sensitive faders, a full-sized backlit LCD and V-Pots for fast tweaking, MCU Pro is the only desktop control surface that can truly make your music production experience complete. With optional expandability via Mackie Control Extender Pro ender Pro and Mackie Control C4 Pro, MCU Pro is also the only software control surface that can grow with your studio.

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. Without dividing your attention between control surface and computer monitor, your mixing speed, efficiency and creative control are all distraction-free. And since it's always a good idea to know where you are in your program material, MCU Pro also sports a big, seven-segment LED timecode display bright enough to jam enemy radar. CHANNELS, FADERS AND BANKS Every Mackie Control Universal Pro comes equipped with nine 100mm motorized touch-sensitive faders from Penny + Giles — one for each channel, plus a master fader — for that pro console look and feel. With support for an unlimited number of banks, MCU Pro can handle as many channels as your music production software can throw at it. Each fader channel also has a genuine Mackie rotary V-Pot, surrounded by an LED collar to indicate the current value, and dedicated buttons for record ready, solo, mute, channel select, and signal present LED. In addition, the master section includes buttons for navigating channels — individually or in banks of eight — as well as for software specific controls like a...
Don't you love it when one little box can solve 1,000 headaches? The PreSonus Monitor Station is just that kind of gadget. In the studio, you've got audio you need to hear — and it's coming from different places and going to different places. For example, you want to send the output of your DAW to your monitors, but be able to A/B/C between your different sets without any fuss. You want to jam along with your iPod going through your nice speakers, without having to go find your laptop or power up your audio interface. Same sort of thing, you want to have your keyboard plugged right in so you can play it when you feel like playing, no cable attaching/detaching necessary. The Monitor Station easily handles all of that, and more.
