EDIROL by Roland Product Marketing Manager Michael Barrett relates, “This new update allows the M-16DX digital mixer to become a true all-in-one recording solution for our customers. Users will find easier to edit and save Scenes, and the added ability to control popular DAW software applications and plug-ins from the M-16DX mixer surface. With several knobs and buttons at their fingertips rather than just a single mouse, users will enjoy a smooth and productive workflow with greater control in their favorite Mac or Windows recording software.”
The M-16DX operates not only as a powerful 16 channel digital mixer and a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 audio interface (that allows 18 channel simultaneous recording for Mac & PC), but with a single push of a button, it can quickly change to control surface mode offering 52 physical knobs and 41 physical switches to control functions in most popular digital audio workstations, such as Cakewalk SONAR Series, Apple Logic Pro, Ableton Live, and other software.
A new Alternative Mode setting allows users to operate the M-16DX mixer and a DAW software at the same time while the Exclusive Mode allows nearly every knob and button on the M-16DX to send controller information to the DAW software with a quick button switch. Four unique template sheets are included in the box for easy reference of the controller functions.
For existing M-16DX users, the new v.2.0 update firmware with instructions can be downloaded from the web links below. Other M-16DX resources available for download at the Roland website include the M-16DX .pdf manual, product brochure, TurboStart document, controller template sheets, and helpful workshop booklets that focus on real world applications and using the unique features of the M-16DX.
The M-16DX is a powerful, all-inclusive, desktop media production solution—for musicians everywhere.
