Mackie Onyx-I Series

August 30, 2010


The Onyx-i Series firewire recording mixers deliver premium analog features, tremendous flexibility and built-in 24-bit/96kHz firewire I/O. Onyx-i firewire mixers can be used with all major DAWs, and are qualified by Mackie for use with Pro Tools M-Powered 8. They feature Onyx mic preamps and Perkins EQ. Users can choose to implement the Perkins EQ into the recording path at the push of a button, and can also choose to record auxes, groups (1640i) and the master L/R signal. The flagship Onyx 1640i incorporates a flexible 16x16 firewire interface, allowing users to return up to 16 DAW channels right back into the channel strips for a true tape-style mixdown.
