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.


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.


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


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.
