Setting up this mixer is simple, no matter how you use it; studio or live use it is still easy to operate and set up. You can’t rack this mixer but it does have some cool effects right out of the box; so I would not mind having it as a desktop mixer. You can connect the FX12 to your computer via USB connection. All of the main functions are easy to operate and understand. If you have ever used any of Mackie’s mixers than you have used this one, they have kept the same flow and functions with almost all of the mixers they have come out with.
This mixer is very quiet; it does not generate any hissing. The EQ is decent for it to be an analog mixer; I have had way better EQ out of some higher end boards. But for this to only be 250 bucks what do you expect to get.
I prefer to use the FX12 for live use because in the studio we already have a mixer set up. We use this for some smaller places that we perform at because it is light and easy to move around. Also we really are not too worried if it gets damaged because it was so inexpensive and if anything ever happened to it we could afford to replace it right away. You can never go wrong with a Mackie mixer.
Setup is really a breeze. Provide it with some power and outputs and start hooking up your instruments, mics etc. Couldn't be simpler. The usb interface works great, and is super useful. Great for recording live shows on the fly. Very responsive mixer with a good compact feel. Things are spaced well enough that it doesn't feel cramped. One complaint I have, however is the eq's high range is too high. Causes some hisses and such. Simple enough fix, however: lay off the eq. There are only 6 XLR inputs, so this is better for smaller, acoustic type ensembles. Or if you are recording in a studio you could use one of these for a whole drumset.
The sound quality is fine, rather natural with little coloration. The EQ is good, except for the high range issue I mentioned above. There's no latency through the USB interface, which is really nice.
Overall I think this is a great product. It's economical, packed with features,and built like a freakin tank. I've dropped mine in puddles and on concrete with only minor scratches. Still works perfect after a year. I really recommend one of these to anyone who needs something like this, as it's really a good deal.
The sound quality is great, and now have been using this as our interface for a while now. My friend as even went out and purchased one of these so he can have all of his stuff hooked up at the same time. His reaction seeing this when I was using it was great, he couldn’t believe for this price he could do all of this. The price of this is righ around 200 dollars or so which is unreal and a must buy if you ask me.
The sound is clean, you cant ask for any more better of a sound for this price.
Great device, the Macki pro FX 12 has built in effects and 4 stereo channels. The actual mixer doesn’t seem really well built though, I wouldn’t want to drop it I would be scared that knobs and sliders would start popping off of it really fast if I dropped it so I take extra care of it, and for 80 dollars I found a mixer stand that keeps it tight so it doesn’t fall and hit the hard floor in my basement because that would just be a disaster. It is a great mixer for the home musician with a lot of different gear.
Effects and EQ a little more, but not a substitute for the real, but it helps out.
No breath of standard outputs, cons by a little breath on the USB part but I do not know if it comes from the table or PC and ASIO drivers.
I've had two years and frankly I do not regret my purchase, it does not take place, it's good value for my home studio that's enough.
