    mackie blackbird/tracktion

    I got my son a mackie blackbird for Xmas. The mackie site is not working for log in, downloads etc. which basically makes the interface useless until I can get drivers, tracktion software etc. After looking around I read somewhere that someone else back in November was having similar problems. Is anyone familiar with an ongoing problem with the Mackie site?

    I have the Mackie Blackbird and have also noticed that the Mackie site did have some issues early in 2011. I thought it was not available for an extended period of time. I hope that is not the case these days, but who knows?

    I have the blackbird setup v3.5 file for Mac. If your running a PC I cannot help you. PM me and I can try and email you the document if you would like.

    The blackbird has been very good to me, I hope your son enjoys his also (when you get it up and running that is).

    Merry Christmas!

    What do you expect? The Mackie site is made in China. And we all know what kind of reliability that includes along with quality control or the lack thereof. Soon as they put in some new batteries should be running again.

    They take Z cell batteries which are hard to find.

    I sent your file, I encourage your son Sam to come join us here on recording.org, Remy and others on this site are very helpful with learning the ins and outs of the recording process.

    All the best,

    Thanks again. mymackie was working this morning. We were able to register and download. I have been showing Sam the site and recommended he get a log in and use it. I used this site and other resources deciding what to get. This is a great site. Hope we made some good choices I guess only time and actual use will tell.
