See the website of Mackie ...

Unbeatable for the price especially when we see the quality


This is my true Premire console and I had not really need the manual plutt so easy to use over the finish is tough trs

10mm would amend the knobs a little more ease of use


This console m 'redcouvrir allowed my machines trs sound is dynamic in the bass and treble
Cest in the mix of mediums is dlicat
The legalization is perfect for the techno and other music electro

In short a good sound a little glitter but mtallique trspchu


I use this console for a month and I'm glad trs
830 euro bought new concept in audio Cavaillon (watch the prices vary greatly from one store to another).
I would do this purchase with closed eyes, fawn all for the price it 'not much else of this quality (the costs the Yamaha MG MODELS are really off the mark, if not more expensive there ... the Midas Venice 160)

Analogue desk with very good preamps, on occasion very good value for money.

any type of connectors, or XLR master output jacks.

-4 Axillary equalizer super efficiency, no built-in effects


Setup is fairly simple AC analog, not really need a manual.


Not breath with this console, pre-amp of very good qualities we really can find happiness with this table.


I keep 2 / 3 years before moving to digital more convenient for me.
I loved these and 4 to the sound quality.
Excellent value for money, I do it again if that choice is not numerical.

Very simple to anyone who has ever used a mixer.
For other reassure you the manual is well done. Do not forget to balance your earnings, use the PFL why then do not touch more and you will not have unpleasant surprises.


The sound is fairly transparent. Well, when compared with higher-end consoles it is perhaps a bit metallic. The equalization is effective and it hardly breath. VLZ = Z = Very Low Very low impedance. (When you hear the breath is that there are bananas, protect your ears!)


I use this console since 2003, with an average of 80 dates this year. I also selected out of confidence in the brand. While purchasing, you taught me that there had been a first series made in the U.S., and now it was "Made in China". Yet I never had any galley ...
