So one of the frequent question we get is about the differences between the MC6 MKI and MKII. One of the key differences is the increase in processor speed and memory, which allowed us to increase the number of features and support an action-based programming logic. Despite these upgrades, we have decided to keep the price constant at USD229.
MKI: Die-cast aluminium, powder-coated black.
MKII: Anodized aluminium sheet metal
The MKII enclosure is 3mm shorter than the MKII. The length and width remains the same.
MKI: 20x2 character
MKII 24x2 character
The 24x2 character LCD screen on the MKII allows us to use up to 8 characters for each preset name, compared to 6 characters on the MKI.
MKII: Plastic screen protector
Processor & Memory
MKII has a much larger memory and processing speed compared to the MKI.
MKI: Send messages based on single switch presses
MKII: Send messages based on programmable actions
You can match messages to specific actions on the MKII. For example, you can have a press action engage Msg1, a double tap press action engage Msg2, and a long press action engage Msg3.
For the MKI, each message is tied to a single press. You can use conditional messages to get more functionality.
Number of Messages per Preset
MKI: 8 Messages
MKII: 16 Messages
The total number of presets remains the same at 12 presets per bank, and 30 banks.
Short Name Length
MKI: 6 Characters for short name only.
MKII: 8 Characters for short name and toggle name
Long Name and Bank Name Length
MKI: 20 Characters
MKII: 24 Characters
Web and Desktop Editor
The MKII uses a different editor with a slightly different interface. However, both editors does the same thing - it allows you to edit parameters on your device.
