As of right now no. The list of compatible control surfaces is:

 

  • Behringer X-TOUCH
  • iCON Platform M+ (w D2 Display)
  • iCON Platform X+
  • iCON Platform B+
  • Mackie MCU Pro
  • Sonosax SX-LC8+
  • Sound Devices CL-12
  • Sound Devices CL-16

So there are options other then the CL-16. I’ve heard some people love the Sonosax, I believe it’s powered via usb as well (don’t quote me on that) making it easy to use on location. I have the icon M+ and for the most part have been happy with the limited use I’ve done with it.

I could be wrong, but the way I understand it is that those are the ‘supported’ ones. Others may still work, as long as they use the Mackie universal protocol....?

Rereading the FAQ’s on Sound Devices website, I believe you are right. Those are the tested and approved one but anything that uses MCU should in theory work. Can always give it a try and see what happens.

I use an iCON Platform M+ (w D2 Display) myself with an 833, from reading the 8 Series group it seems other non-official may "work" but it depends on your luck as to how well it "works" and how many quirks you'll have to put up with. If you just simply want a relatively predictable and solid control surface, then get the iCON Platform M+ (or the SX-LC8+ if you really want it as compact as possible, or a CL12 if you've already got one, or  ideally the CL16 if you've got the cash).
