Mackie D8B Digital 8 Bus
(Originally written by bassprodukt/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
No comments about the well-known features.

UTILIZATION

Extremely easy to use: my user's manual is rotting somewhere.

Pros:

Scene editing

Display

Effects

Cons:

Perhaps the preamps

SOUNDS

This mixing desk sounds good.

I bought it secondhand and I had heard some negative comments before buying it, but its sound surprised me. I find it punchy and very versatile.

The mixer is reliable and sturdy considering its price (please spare me the comparisons with an SSL or a Neve, which are totally different products).

I use it with a HDR24/96 and it's a breeze!

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it for several months in my home studio. I also have two Yamaha 02-R to compare it to.

The mixer seems to be less sturdy than the Yamahas. The sound is very different but pleasant.

I don't use the converters because my Motu converters sound better. I use this mixer only to mix.

I manage all recordings with my PC and a control surface.

The value for money is unbeatable and if the mixer ever gets broken I'll run to the shop to buy a second one.

A small turnoff is that the OS upgrades are not free, which I find unacceptable. Mackie has an awful sales policy regarding this.

Mackie D8B Digital 8 Bus
This mixer is incredible.

Price paid: $8,999.00 (now much less)

Sound is improved with additional Plug -ins and Apogee Word Clock card purchased seperately.

Its very easy to use and the manual is clear yet in depth.

You must be gentle with this board.

I love this board!

Mackie D8B Digital 8 Bus
Well I give my opinion only because frankly the lack of objectivity of people annoys me.

I will not notice anything is too long sorry!

UTILIZATION

It's super simple and intuitive who had on February 1 st and with a current 96i 01v. I can tell you that the converter are great on the Mackie and that cake to use.

Not need the manual. It is so obvious that even added an adat in 2 click.

SOUNDS

The effects are not bad and if you like there is not enough to add to external effects.

The converters are not bad, already better than the 02 r v2. The dynamics are good.

OVERALL OPINION

I used it for 1 year and a half.

+ I liked its ease of use, sound really bad, the overall management of the number of the software.

- The size of the lives not just in small place. The software a bit slow.

We can have cheap frankly if it is for the rehearsal or studio is cool secondhand. For the live a little less.

Super simple to use. Everything is clear and intuitive. trs good ergonomics, clear operating manual (english franais)
Tone

Transparency fairly neutral and Fidler.
Lqualiser is trs own
The effects are really good

Global Reviews

I wanted to go to numrique to facilitate recordings via my PC. Before I used a Mackie 24/8/2 and I've always given me that but happiness.
But I do not regret the D8B (bought 3 months ago 2550) is excellent and is much easier to use than I imagined. It sounds good, it is convenient, compact and effects are nickels. Excellent choice!

Mackie D8B Digital 8 Bus
Unit-Central Console 19 ", 3U.

Jack and XLR-connectors.
Double-EQ parameter.
-2 Ffects intrgrets sections.

Sampling 48-KB
-Automation of faders, EQ, Effects, PAN ,..........

UTILIZATION

The console took over rev quickly. Quickly found its mark, the usual functions are accessible with one click.
Frans manual workbook.
I recommend reading it, for all couraging possibility to the Mackie D8B.

SOUNDS

Converters-effects and are of good quality.
Trs-good quality sound, dynamic compliance same for a console numrique.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this console for 3 years.
I tried other console numrique before buying the Mackie D8B, Yamaha (the cold and impractical to use), other brands such as SONY RMX100 yet (bugs) one step too small .
My change of activity forces me to sell the D8B, it will miss a lot.
It's a great console efficient, reliable, Mackie are all the same manufacturing pro console.
