Mackie has been empowering musicians, DJs, and multimedia producers with top-notch tools for more than 30 years. Recently, the company has expanded its reach to the podcasting and streaming market with the release of DLZ Creator―an adaptive digital audio mixer that allows creators of all skill levels to achieve professional-level results for their podcasts, YouTube channels, and live streams. This portable and versatile production studio can accommodate up to four microphones, facilitate remote guest interviews via phone calls, and capture high-quality audio for streaming or recording to a computer via USB-C. Alternatively, you can record full multitrack audio to an SD card for a completely self-contained setup.
A Digital Recorder for All Experience Levels
The DLZ Creator can be adjusted to fit your personal style or level of expertise with its three Control Modes: Easy, Enhanced, and Pro. These modes offer a faster way to achieve exceptional outcomes with no compromise in processing or sound quality.
If you prefer a straightforward approach and do not want to navigate through menus, then Easy Mode is the right choice for you. Enhanced Mode is suitable for those who desire some customization but not an excessive number of options. Finally, Pro Mode is perfect for those who possess the knowledge and skills to attain their desired outcomes.
Built-In Smarts―More than a Digital Mixer
Generating content requires a great deal of effort and technical know-how. Fortunately, DLZ Creator is equipped with a suite of powerful tools that can aid you in becoming a more effective content producer. With its proprietary Mix Agent Technology, you’ll have your own personal audio assistant to lead you through the setup process (including gain level adjustments) and automate procedures for a hassle-free and efficient workflow. The AutoMix function automatically adjusts levels for up to four microphones, ensuring that everyone's voice is heard clearly, even when multiple people are speaking at the same time. Additionally, by employing Mix Minus with your Bluetooth-linked smartphone, you can add a caller to your content seamlessly without any noticeable echo when they speak.
The Ins and Outs of Producing
The DLZ Creator leverages Mackie's extensive expertise to bring a professional-grade audio mixer to your desktop. With its Onyx80 preamps, even low-output microphones such as the Shure SM7B can sound both loud and crystal clear. Additionally, DLZ Creator offers tailored headphone mixes for each of your guests, allowing you to enjoy the perks of a studio mixer without the steep learning curve.
