Super powerful and easy to use

  • Excerpt: We use this with a Mac and Adobe Audition to run our podcast, so it's been awesome in helping us wring all the performance we can out of our otherwise decidedly un-acoustic studio/office. Strong recommendation for this if you're looking for a great mixer running Firewire to help elevate your sound control capabilities.

Great mixer and value

  • Excerpt: If they hadn't done away with Firewire on the new Macbook Pro, I would have been very happy to continue using this mixer. But I can't justify lugging it around and using a dongle. Instead I have an RME Babyface and a cheap Samson 6 channel mixer for synths. I will be picking up a Behringer ADA8000 for multitrack.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile

Solid and a good value

  • Excerpt: I use this thing every day as the audio hub in my video production studio. Currently I'm using all 12 inputs and multiple outputs in my setup. Simply put - everything works the way I expect with no fuss. It interfaces seamlessly with Logic, SoundtrackPro, FCP and the Adobe A/V apps. The only drawback I've run into is the ability of the Onyx mic preamps to fully boost weak output microphones. I have an Audio-Technica mic that simply does not output acceptable levels.

  • Excerpt: If you're looking for a recording interface, or looking for a analog mixer, Mackie Onix-i is vvery good in both. Good preamps, good AD/DA convertion, excelent EQ. It's awsome!

Solid as a tank, unusable for recordings

T. Powers, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Compared with competition products, the Onyx I series is practically unusable for any other capture than REALLY loud sounds (like drums and snares). For a normal talking voice, on Onyx I series mixers you will get peaks of 8-10% off the total dynamic ratio, having the gain knob set at MAXIMUM. Using same mic and same voice, on competition product you can easily fill up 100% with gain knob set to 1 a clock.
  • Cons: Low recording level

"Sa place en home-studio et plus si affinités..."

Makos, Audiofanzine
12 July 2014
  • Excerpt: J'utilise cette Mackie depuis quelques temps à présent. Elle a sa place dans mon home-studio et remplie sa fonction de "Hub-Audio" avec brio. On retrouve avec ce modèle la qualité de l'électronique de la série VLZ, avec en plus le routage vers l'ordinateur en firewire de l'ensemble des entrées. Les convertisseurs sont transparents, ont un...
