    Mackie ProFX8Published on 10/10/12 at 21:33
    The Pro FX8 is a 8 channel mixer that comes with effects right on the unit. The FX8 is a smaller mixer but packs a powerful punch with all of its features. It allows you to stream and record through USB. This mixer is perfect for performing in a smaller club or for someone who performs solo by themselves. All of the preamps have high headroom and some really good effects and EQ ability. The RMFX are 32 bit effects that add some style to your mixes.

    UTILIZATION

    The Pro FX8 is very simple to use, there really is not a set up process and no manual is needed to learn to use the FX8. The unit is very well built like most of the Mackie mixers that they have come out with over the last few years.


    SOUNDS

    It has 8 channels with no direct outputs. You will need to connect it to your PC via USB. There are a 3 band channel and 7 band stereo EQ. Being that this is an affordable mixer and doesn’t have all of the great features of expensive boards, it does not have a Talkback option which is why it is more for personal and home use. The unit is pretty light and can be taken with you from place to place without feeling like you are lugging around more heavy gear on top of what you already have to carry.


    OVERALL OPINION

    If you are a small club performer or a solo musician, then this mixer will fit you perfectly. It has all of the effects and features you need to add to your sound and your mix. It cost less than 250.00 dollars and it is well built. I have been using this mixer for certain projects since August of 2011 and have not had a single issue with it and don’t think they I every will.

    The Mackie Pro FX 8 is a great mixer, it is very similar to the FX 12 that I purchased, but this is the one that I had first. The only reason that I got rid of it and move on to the FX 12 was because of the ability to have 12 different instruments coming in. I really needed a few more and 8 just didn’t cut it for me anymore. But if you are looking for a device that has built in effects and can be hooked up to your computer via USB. This is exactly what you have been looking for.

    UTILIZATION

    Getting started was pretty easy, had to read a little bit out of the manuals just to figure a few things out, the manual on the FX 8 was pretty easy to understand and it wasn’t too big like I thought it was going to be like some other manuals on mixers that I have used.


    SOUNDS

    The sound is great, clear and crisp on all of your devices and instruments.


    OVERALL OPINION

    I say if you are looking at getting this, I saw you mine as well spend a little extra cash and just get the FX 12. That way if you get some more gear down the road you will have space for it, I really don’t see the point in getting this now for what the price is when if you spend a little more you can get 12 in puts and have room to grow. Because if you use a lot of live instruments and gear then you will eventually need to upgrade from the FX 8 anyways so in order to save your self some money and a head ache in the long run just go ahead and spend a little extra cash and get the Mackie pro FX 12. But if you arent using all of the 8 inputs and only using a few of them, then go ahead and get the 8. Just make sure you have room to grow either way.

    The Mackie ProFX8 is a mixer that has 4 channels with mic / line inputs, two stereo line inputs with. Each microphone input has a low-cut filter at 100Hz.

    A channel dedicated stereo line level is also present, as well as a stereo return for keyboards, effects processor or playback.

    An entry that DI is also present, allowing direct connection of a guitar or bass.

    UTILIZATION

    Everything is simple and intuitive

    SOUNDS

    Very good, little breath, good eqhualiseur

    OVERALL OPINION

    Excellent stuff is just unfortunate that the A / D converter has standard quality.
    Bits 92Khz/24 a model would have been welcome. But for the price it is great.

    USB noise problems are resolved by the latency of the soundcard to 256 to 512 samples in the buffer.

    In summary, excellent product and ratio Q / P. This is a mixing desk, high-quality but small group and record layouts.
    Do not plan to use with a DAW, latency too long and some short sample. If it is not beyond the scope of its use, it remains unbeatable ratio Q / P.

    Good music

  • decent mixer for the price

    Mackie ProFX8Published on 10/06/11 at 22:40
    The Mackie Pro FX 8 packs a lot of power in a small footprint. While being small, it is built to take the knocks of the road and satisfies the home user as well. The effects are quality and after a little usage time you quickly learn the nuances and sweet spots of the mixer to suit your needs. Both Condenser and Dynamic mics are satisfied with it's onboard power. I'd recommend this to anyone needing a smaller mixer but still wanting quality


    UTILIZATION

    I had no problems getting started with this mixer, the Mackie Pro FX 8 runs great!

    SOUNDS

    Very low noise and very smooth sounding, crystal clear sounding.
    My AKG C 535 condenser mic sounds amazing through this mixer.

    My AKG C 535 condenser mic sounds amazing through this mixer.
    The good thing is that it is smaller and lighter then the previous DFX 6.
    What I like about this mixer is for the price you get great features,
    a stereo 7 band graphic EQ.

    OVERALL OPINION

    This mixer produces a good clean sound to the new powered QSC K 12's I have. More head room overall from the board on the Mackie 808s powered mixer I just retired. The board design has good quality with the knobs and sliders with the exception of the EFX selector knob, which seems of less quality from the rest of the board. The EFX are clean and clear, however my ear does not hear a distinct difference in several of the 16 selections. Overall though a good deal for the money. Note..This is the only board of it's size that has graphic EQ for controlling Mains or Monitors..I checked several other brands for that feature and other than Carvin (8 channel only) this is it. If keeping a setup simple with good sound and a lot of features in a compact setup is important, then this is the main show in town. If not the only!

    No rack
    Effects intgrs
    Sold as table mix with USB. That would be true if it were not for background noise 1 kHz ...
    Out USB seems to be a good hardware, but I IMMEDIATELY sent back the where I had bought because the USB problem is unacceptable.
    I do not dare to sell such a Mackie hardware

    UTILIZATION

    Configuration very simple, very good manual rewrites and humorous (yes!).
    The design of this table is good, too bad it EHJV numrique ...

    SOUNDS

    Yes, it has that is the gte.
    For audio hardcore, no problem.
    For the home studio with recording via USB: Forget l.
    I saw (too late) that this problem of extraneous noise silent ProFX8 all common (and probably ProFX12 - A vrifier)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used a total of 1 hour before calling the German seller for him to return soon ...
    What I like most is the design and simplicity of use.
    What I like least is the noise on the USB port.
    What I like even less is that Mackie still sell this model when they know (necessarly) that this presents an unacceptable default.
    I had previously (although Chinese sr) a Phonic MM1202XP I'll sell.
    And I just bought a Behringer Xenyx 1222X USB.
    I judge the relative quality and price I do wrong Rasht in any case this model.
    Furthermore, although me calm on the brand Mackie ...
