Mackie DLZ Creator XS Adaptive Digital Streaming Mixer

$ 499.99

Featuring the same DSP processing power and features of its larger sibling, the DLZ Creator XS from Mackie delivers in-depth control, versatility, and the convenience of automatic mixing for content creators. Ideal for producing podcasts, YouTube content, and live streams, the DLZ Creator XS gives you three creator modes for a rapid workflow: Easy, Enhanced, and Pro.

Like the larger version, adaptive technology is built in for painless, perfect mixes, including the MixAgent audio assistant and a button-activated Auto-Mix function. Despite its compact size, the DLZ Creator XS sports plenty of hands-on control including a bright 7" color touchscreen, four Quick Control knobs for essential parameters, five rotary encoders, and six backlit pads for loading preset sounds and samples. New to the DLZ Creator system, the XS introduces Ethernet audio via the NDI protocol for supporting up to two streaming setups. When it's time to record, you can utilize USB for flash or computer connection or the built-in microSD card reader.

Fully NDI Compatible
Full NDI integration means fast and powerful bidirectional audio and video workflows across Ethernet networks. The NDI standard enables broadcast-quality, low-latency, and frame accurate audio and video communication between multiple machines in real time on a simple, secure, and dependable IP network.

The NDI standard is also increasingly relevant in streaming and Cloud Mixing, allowing for direct connection into music creation software and connection to outside networks. With support from Twitch and OBS, the NDI protocol has also been embraced by online gamers, live streamers, and podcast professionals.

Create on Your Terms
Choose the mode that fits your creative style and needs, and DLZ Creator XS tailors the display and controls to match.
