Mackie Onyx 820i Review - Pro-Tools inside a Mackie?
It's been a while since the first Onyx mixers with the FireWire option first came out, and now Mackie carries on with the Onyx 820i, which comes with Pro Tools M-Powered 8. Hmm...so what does M-Audio think about that?

Talkback section with internal microphone and flexible assignment
I use it to make home studio tracks guitar, bass, voice, drums, synth .... it is connected with Firewire on the Mac, it is easily recognized by GarageBand, made sounds are made with Shure SM58 and SM57
it has XLR output jack and large, I plugged on MR5, the sound is clean ... after taking sounds for all the expense of the room acoustics, microphones ...
Very good console for home studio for those who do not want to take the lead is the all in one solution, it saves space, plug it works, no need sound card or something else on the other hand must some idea anyway ... the console has a lot of possibilities, there is a way to make beautiful models with, Mackie is a product that is designed for demanding enthusiasts and the price / quality ratio is pretty flawless, I have not yet tested Thunderbolt port on the new Mac to see if it is compatible

blogtrotter's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent value for money"
I just bought it .. I use it for two weeks. I bought it new and € 385 ... Firewire is the bomb at the money. Integrated sound card with ASIO excellent, the first taken his via the sound card and a Shure Beta 58a are excellent. 96000Hz sampling, no breath (75% gain) on the mic and sound recording of a keyboard yamaha ..
it's very good stuff! the high and low pass and Eq are effective. importation of those in this post or pre / post
Cubase SX immediate integration, no worries
no breath (knobs 75/80%)
excellent value for a beginner home studio with limited resources but want to "work" seriously!
