Mackie TT24 Officially Discontinued
« on: September 28, 2009, 12:18:51 am »

As a user and owner of this board, I have been waiting for the official word from Mackie. It appeared today in a very subtle manner, by moving the TT24 info page from the products page to the discontinued products technical support page.

see:
http://www.mackie.com/support/downloads/discontinued.html

I this is unfortunate... it just crashed this morning on me during live use.  ugh...a very long 10 second reboot.

Aside from a few hiccups, my TT24 has performed pretty well for me. It's very hard to beat at its price point.  I'm disappointed by this news as well, I think Mackie had a decent product if they would just keep refining it.  Loud probably lost their shirt on the deal after just investing in the System 32 enhancements...

Apparently someone screwed up on the Mackie site and moved the TT to the discontinued section. Here's a post from Ben at Mackie on their forums:


FYI, the TT24 was mistakenly moved to our disconitnued products section by our new webmaster. We didn't realize it until you all spotted it. It's back now. We are definitely still supporting the console and are in fact working on a release to fix a bug with card slot B that appears to have been introduced with beta build 109.

Personally I think it's about time they discontinue it and come out with something newer and more solid. It's been 5 years and they still haven't worked out all the bugs.

I suspect that's how they shot themselves in the foot aside from manufacturing & supply problems - they moved the TT team to the UMX project. UMX failed and nothing significant was done to improve the TT durning that time which was the real potential cash cow. Just bad decisions all around.

When the only digital mixer you've ever managed to ship in any quantity, briefly the darling of the weekend warrior and regional soundco, is mistakenly listed as discontinued and everyone says "finally", perhaps it's time to give up the ghost. Loud had a brief window before the introduction of Yamaha's LS9-32 during which Mackie could have taken a large share of the low end digital market, but that time has come and gone. Hell, I've seen more of the Roland product at this point than the TT-24.

What will really hurt?  The UMX96 project scraped at s/n 004.

That's gotta be expensive.

Yeah but … "finally" mines works perfectly … despite Loud Technologies.
