Available next month in the U.S., the Mackie Control Universal (MSRP: $1,299) combines the functionality of Mackie Control, Emagic Logic Control and Mackie’s HUI protocol into a universal controller.

The Mackie Control Universal features full implementation of Emagic’s Logic Audio, as well as the entire family of DAW software currently supporting the Mackie Control, including Digidesign Pro Tools, Cakewalk Sonar, Magix Samplitude and Sequoia, MOTU Digital Performer, RML Labs Saw Studio, Steinberg Cubase SX/SL and Nuendo, Syntrillium Cool Edit Pro and APB Tools TH-S software.

Design and layout for the new Mackie Control Universal is nearly identical to the previous Mackie Control and Logic Control. It features eight channel strips each with 100mm Penny + Giles optical touch fader and V-Pot for fast tweaking of effects and plug-ins. Also included is a full-size backlit LCD, and shortcut navigation and editing for all major software functions. The stock silk screen will now correspond to Logic Audio functions, while software-specific master section overlays will continue to be available to customize the unit to other supporting DAWs.

With this product announcement, Mackie is offering several upgrade packages that will allow existing Mackie Control or Logic Control owners to retrofit their current system with cross-platform compatibility. Mackie has also made the recently announced HUI/Pro Tools upgrade available for existing Logic Control owners.
