Mackie MCU Pro

ULTIMATE CONTROL FOR A COMPLETE EXPERIENCE
The Mackie Control Universal Pro control surface completes your music production software to give you ultimate hands-on control of your mix. Nine motorized, touch-sensitive Penny + Giles faders, eight V-Pots and more than 50 master buttons let you tweak parameters to your heart’s content. Unlike generic MIDI controllers, the MCU Pro employs a sophisticated communication protocol that delivers ultra-precise control, makes setup easy – no mapping required – and enables you to see your mix in action with real-time visual feedback via the huge backlit LCD and eight LED rings. Easily expand your command with the Mackie Control Extender Pro and Mackie Control C4 Pro.

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 Alps — 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 doesn’t 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 software’s 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 extension for MCU Pro. Slightly narrower than a MCU Pro, the Extender Pro has all the channel strip features of the MCU Pro — without the master section. Depending on your music production software support, multiple Extender units can be used together with a MCU Pro to emulate a large-scale control surface with as many faders and pots as desired.

EASY SETUP
Connect just a single USB cable and you are up and running wtih MCU Pro. And the built-in MIDI interfaces lets you add up to three MCU XT Pros without the need for external hardware. Or use the MIDI I/O to hook up your classic MIDI gear and work on your ELO covers.

    5 of 5 Great Control Surface November 2, 2018
    Reviewer: Steve from CA United States  
    I have the old (but there's nothing wrong with it) Pro Tools HD TDM V7.4.

    When we moved I gave up my C24 Control Surface.  Also in the move I can't find the box (buried somewhere in the garage) with my Pro Tools software so I can't load any Pro Tools control surface drivers.

    When I spoke with the knowledgeable MIDI Store technician he assured me that  the Mackie MCU Pro was the best control surface for me.

    He was right, I plugged it in and within minutes it was working perfectly.

    I like the design on the Mackie and layout.  I don't miss my C24 anymore...
