    *Mackie’s R&D department:* “Let’s make a mixer you can control remotely
    with an iPad! It’ll be so cool!

    This is the strangest ad for anything I think I’ve ever seen.
    (but please, don’t try to top it)

  11. Stanley Rosenbaum says:

    This is one way to advertise a new product…

  12. Wesley Barnhart says:

    Give our latest spot a look!

  13. Jason Rigden says:

    maybe the greatest commercial ever

  14. Mike Mongo says:

    I saw this in action with the band The Doerfels…and they’re kids!
    (Brilliant kids.)

    It is the Mackie DL1608. And its controller is an iPad.

    And this video is spot-on because when you see this in action you’ll see
    how it is changing live shows as we know them. I mean, the soundperson is
    *anywhere* in the room now. Soundperson + interactivity = mind-blowing.

    Great video too.

    Funniest Ad/video I’ve seen in a long time.

    *Cooler Mixer trifft verpeiltes Video ;)*

    Best promotional video ever!!! Someone must have been whacked out of their
    mind to come up with this…

    too funny via +Marc LaGana

  19. Markus Michael says:

    i wish i was an audio engineer

  20. Craig Becker says:

    This is hilarious. I know Alesis also has a couple of similar upcoming
    products that use the iPad as an embedded controller / display / engine,
    and I think it’s something we can count on seeing more and more of, not
    just in the music business.

    (so you might want to hold onto that iPad 1 when / if you upgrade)

  21. Paul Sloman says:

    Amazingly weird advert for a really intriguing product!

  23. Shaun Cechner says:

    this is the best ad i’ve ever seen for a mixing desk

  24. Eddie Fu says:

    Watch this commercial and thank me later.
