David Strachan (Decatur, Ga.) and Kate Slaney (Birmingham, Ala.) were the grand-prize winners of Mackie's summer-long Mackie Makeover contest.

Strachan won the Mackie Recording Studio Makeover package, comprising a D8B Digital Mixer, an HDR24/96 Hard Disk Recorder/Editor and a pair of HR824 Studio Monitors. A recent new owner of a Mackie DFX·12 Compact Live Sound Effects Mixer, Strachan first learned about the contest when he went to register his mixer online. "The first thing I'll do is replace my existing equipment and make music with Mackie," he said after learning that he won. "I was totally surprised. I've never won anything like this until now."

Slaney, a self-described "dreaming artist," takes home the Mackie Rehearsal Space Makeover package with an SR32·4-VLZ Pro Live Sound Mixer, two C300 Loudspeakers and two M·800 Power Amplifiers. Once she gets it set up, "I'll probably get arrested for noise violation," she said.
