Without Mackie Control Universal Pro, your music production software just isnt complete. MCU Pro rounds out your softwares 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.

DISPLAY FOR DAYS
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. 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 assigning I/O, sends, EQ, dynamics, and plug-ins to name a few.

MASTER OF YOUR APPLICATION
We know it doesnt 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 softwares parameters in the master section and you can get right down to action. We even supply pre-labeled Lexan overlays for your application so it not only functions like the MCU Pro was designed for your software alone, it looks that way, too.

MORE OF A GOOD THING: MACKIE CONTROL EXTENDER PRO
The Mackie Control Extender Pro is an eight-channel control surface extender Pro ension for MCU Pro. Slightly narrower than a MCU Pro, the Extender Pro ender Pro has all the channel strip features of the MCU Pro without the master section. Depending on your music production software support, multiple EExtender Pro ender Pro units can be used together with a MCU Pro to emulate a large-scale control surface with as many faders and pots as desired.

C4 Pro operates in standalone mode, or you can easily connect to the MCU Pro via the master modules onboard USB MIDI interface for complete command of all your software parameters.
