Mackie ProFX Series Mixers
Mackie has introduced two new compact effects mixers with USB I/O — the ProFX8 and ProFX12.
Each ProFX model features Mackie low-noise, high-headroom mic preamps for pristine signal and offers 16 "Gig-Ready" effects using the brand new, integrated 32-bit RMFX ™ (Running Man FX) effects processor. Every channel strip features 3-band active EQ, two aux sends, LED metering and a smooth 60mm fader. Onboard 7-band stereo graphic EQ allows for simple tuning of the Mains or Monitors, and USB I/O lets the user stream music directly from a laptop, or capture the live mix using the included Tracktion 3 Music Production Software.
The ProFX8 features four mic/line channels, two of which feature stereo line inputs. All mic channels offer a 100Hz lo-cut filter and include an easy Level Set LED. There is also a dedicated stereo line-in channel (bringing total stereo line inputs to three sets) and an additional Stereo Return for keyboards, external effects or stereo playback devices. It even includes a built-in DI input for direct connection of a guitar or bass. It is adapted to solo performers and for stage submixing.
The ProFX12 includes six mic preamps, and five sets of stereo line inputs including the additional Stereo Return. All mic channels feature the Level Set LED and lo-cut filter, and there is also a built-in DI.
The ProFX Series Compact Effects Mixers with USB will be available in the U.S. in October and internationally in late Q4, 2008. The ProFX8 will have a U.S. MSRP of $299.99. The ProFX12 will have a U.S. MSRP of $359.99. See their debut October 3-5, at AES in San Francisco, Booth #1026.
