Mackie MCU Pro 8 Channel Control Surface with USB - Box Opened


The Mackie MCU Pro is the perfect match for your music production software. You can have the ultimate hands-on control of your mix with nine motorized, touch-sensitive Alps faders, along with eight V-Pots and more than 50 master buttons. An onboard USB MIDI interface is included for direct connection to Mac or PC, as well as up to 3 additional pieces of external MIDI gear. With the USB connection, the MCU Pro might just be the most widely compatible DAW controllers, working with every major digital audio workstation software package -- Pro Tools, Logic, Cubase, Nuendo, Ableton Live, Reason, Digital Performer, Adobe Audition, Cakewalk Sonar -- plus several not-so-major DAWs.

Please note, the box has been opened as part of our quality control inspections and as such all the seals have been broken. The item itself is brand new and has never been used.

This is a great opportunity to buy a fully functioning product at a discounted price, supplied with a one year warranty.

The Mackie Control Universal Pro offers sophisticated Mackie Control communications protocol, which offers ten times the precision of ordinary 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! Your software was designed with MCU Pro in mind, meaning the MCU Pro integrates with your software like no other hardware controller.

Complete your music production experience with the easy-to-use MCU Pro, with nine Alps touch-sensitive faders, a full-sized backlit LCD and V-Ports for fast tweaking, your creative flow will not be interrupted. The MCU Pro is also the only software control surface that can grow with your studio, with optional Mackie Control Extender Pro.

The two-line, 55-character backlit LCD displays paqrameters like track name, channel metering, I/O assignments, plug-ins, EQ, dynamics and more, saving you time by not having to look up at your computer to see the parameters you're tweaking. Without dividing your attention between control surface and computer monitor, your mixing speed, efficiency and creative control are all distraction-free.

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. 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. 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.

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.
