QSC Audio Products announces a co-development partnership with the M&W Pro Audio (Greg Mackie and Peter Watts) to create a series of digital audio mixing consoles. Greg Mackie retired from Mackie Designs (now Loud Technologies) in 2003, while Peter Watts is also an experienced pro-audio veteran who has spent 35 years designing analog and digital recording consoles, including the Trident DiAn digitally controlled console.

“We needed a pro-audio partner with established sales, marketing and distribution," says Mackie. "A partner with a solid reputation for quality and reliability—one that had the technical capabilities to develop advanced digital mixing consoles and the manufacturing know-how to produce the products. I had a long time personal friendship with John and Barry Andrews, and knew I could trust QSC to be exactly the right partner."

“We are delighted to be working with Greg and Peter," says QSC VP of Marketing Gerry Tschetter. "Their passion for creating fine audio products mirrors our own. Our efforts to create value and performance on the ‘B-chain’ [processing, power and loudspeaker] side have yielded a number of highly successful product lines. It’s great fun to be working on the ‘A-chain’ [mixing] side, as well.”

QSC states that it will design the products working with M&W while handling all of the manufacturing, distribution, sales, marketing and technical support. QSC says that it expects to announce the first products during the first half of 2011.
