Excerpt: this product is most definately NOT COMPATIBLE with m-powered 8. i bought the mixer + The software seperately and both mackie + avid both told me .. sorry pal, that was a limited time thing, to use this mixer with pro tools they will ask u to upgrade to pt9 or pt10 or higher...
Excerpt: In the short time I've had this mixer, I have been very satisfied with the sound quality. I'm using it as my daw's audio interface running it through a pair of Tanoi reveal nearfield monitors.
Excerpt: This board is used in a Video Production classroom and so the firewire portion is needed for video/audio editing. The Mackie is such a reliable product that I can use it with middle school students so they only have to adjust the faders, up or down for each device.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound
Excerpt: Compared to my old budget firewire mixer, this thing is a world class studio. I went cheap last time so I could get a few bazillion other things I needed to build my studio. And boy did I miss having a Mackie. This was the last piece in the link.
Excerpt: The Mackie Onyx I series, compared A/B with competition (cheaper Yamaha USB mixers or Motu) exhibit about 40 dB less signal in captured audio files. With normal voice, talking (like telling a story), you will fill only 8% (yes) of the total dynamic ratio, gain knob fully right.
Summary: Ich habe mich nach mehreren sehr negativen Erfahrungen, mit einem günstigeren Produkt, für das Mackie ONYX 1620i entschieden, weil es durchgehend funktioniert. Anschließen, installieren und geht ! Ein anderes Produkt musste ich 2 mal zurückschicken weil jedesmal etwas anderes nicht funktioniert hat.
