Mackie Releases Master Fader 4 for DL Series Mixers

I did tell you that there would continue to be content about audio stuff, didn't i?

At any rate, Mackie have released a new version of Master Fader, the iOS control app for their DL-series digital mixers. This is a huge upgrade, and the result is a very mature, and even more usable mixer. Here's Mackie's new features video (click image to play video):
