The combination of the DL32R digital mixer and DC16 control surface delivers all
the benefits of digital and industry-leading wireless mixing designed from the
ground up as an integrated system. With 32 remote-controllable Onyx+™ mic
preamps and 16 outputs paired with massive built-in DSP, the system is ideal for

AXIS delivers an innovative tactile mixing experience with the DC16 control surface,
with features that set it apart from mixers costing twice as much or more.
“AXIS is designed with fast-paced, professional applications in mind,” commented
Olswang. “And visual feedback is critical when you need to work fast. The sheer
amount of screen space built into AXIS is amazing.”
Unmatched visual feedback is provided by large, full-colour channel displays that
are nearly double the size of competitive designs. Each screen delivers critical
channel information with clear functional colour differentiation, crisp icons and ultra
large, highly-legible fonts that are easy to read at all times. This is all in addition to
the high-resolution screens of the iPad, which is at the heart of the AXIS system.
The AXIS design provides a unique surface-to-wireless workflow, allowing users to
seamlessly switch between DC16’s hardware controls and comprehensive wireless
mixing. This is possible via the integrated SmartBridge™, which can house up to
three iPad devices, delivering simultaneous control over multiple channels and
innovative smart sensing that knows when an iPad is in place. SmartBridge™
provides customization over each iPad view with both a fixed and history mode that
creates tremendous workflow flexibility.
“With a completely modular design, flexible multi-track recording and a focus on
smart workflow, this system is clearly ahead of the curve,” concluded Olswang.
“Better workflow through innovation. This is the goal of AXIS.”
