"A happy camper"

By a customer from cybernex.net, zzounds.com
9 February 2011
  • 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.

"If you don't need monitors, don't manipulate with microphones, don't use solo and don't run live shows - it's a fine mixer."

By a customer from hotmail.com, zzounds.com
26 January 2011
  • Excerpt: I can't say much about the sound, as the rooms it was played in were not optimal. Probably, good - they say that on the net, and that's why I bought it in the first place.

Reliability is the key to the Mackie!

Susan, B&H Photo
7 June 2010
  • 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

"The perfect front end for my studio."

By a customer from hotmail.com, zzounds.com
26 March 2010
  • 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.

Poor levels on recorded files

T. Powers, B&H Photo
3 March 2010
  • 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.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls
  • Cons: Low mic gain, Week level in recordings

User Review

  • 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.
