Mackie D8B Digital 8 Bus
- Not
- Char 'already cited
- Parametric or not, it distorts my sense bcp when it occurs in the upper spectrum
- Yes, big-effects section plugins that do not work very well on any item which is not BAR: metal stamp


Yes - it seems to be simple, but our engineers' strove well above, I think he had a knack for handling
- Yes


- convertos very mediocre, which is felt on the length of a disk
- Effective yes, but at what price: overly placid sailing on EQ, reverb metal (I must say that I blame this to bcp reverb ', including some very expensive and supposedly much better)
- The dynamics are well respected


For an album
Many, it would exaggerate say that I very much identifies the difference with a Soundcraft or a control surface for a DAW
The best: it allows a rapid mixing
Fewest: sound very irregular on low, fairly well; cons for electric guitars sound artificial; so amazing classical guitars sound pretty, sunny, as if this was not the preamp, to factory turbine on voice: well generally, but with a cloudy sky in the high, perhaps due to caution before using the EQ, which I thank our engineer because when they intervene, it does seems more nothing (the height you say, the EQ are the main interest of the mix, right?)
The quality / price seems right hand that can Squeezer for converters and has at least two or three preamp 'colored.
For compression, I reserve my opinion, not knowing how far the sound has been compressed; say no audible pumping effect.
Without being mean, no, its too flat and poorly suited to rock.
In contrast, electronic parts emerge very well: I think it can even be an excellent tool for dealing with the voices apart and records / mixes with synth. Very good point that enhances all: not so bad.

Mackie D8B Digital 8 Bus
Very good console in terms of its number of entries, routing, automation, extensions and interfaces
available on the market (ADAT, TDIF, analog, aesebu, clocks apogee, DSP cards .... etc)!
Given this performance, no one comes close in its price range

The only problem! it does not sound, the preamps are really means, the sound (even in LINE) is soft,
the eq and other compressors are really not good!
(Apparently, there would be improvements in version 5 of the system
but I could not try it because it is not free and not give it - a $ 300 download)

In my opinion, this console is perfect for pre-mix of synthesizers, manage the effects returns or make the post-sync
but do not try to mix the rock band above ca Voil sound cold and confused!

a great success in marketing but mackie
yaa seen it inside (it's a vulguaire PC with a control panel deporte few chips dsp +), I'm not surprised that the selling off right now for less than 9000 euros
Note, however, the current price is without extensions and extensions are expensive and essential!


The D8B is very easy to use! Over two days more than enough!
The ergonomics are well researched!
The manual is very well done and clear copy!


NO, NO and NO


1 year - I appreciate all functions except the sound it provides -
report QUALITY / PRICE?? It depends on what is meant by "Quality"
