"Analog summing...why wouldn't you?"

By T. D in Huntsville, AL, zzounds.com
3 June 2012
  • Excerpt: Something about listening to you mix coming from an analog console. Like I said, I won't call it the best thing out there, but far more impressed enough to not look for anything else.

Perfect solution for DAW audio interface

Media ProVisions, B&H Photo
11 February 2012
  • Excerpt: The Mackie Onyx 1640i is a clear winner for an audio interface to your DAW. It combines the features of a professional mixing desk with the seamless integration of a DAW front end. Mackie products are typically very well engineered and built, the Onyx 1640i is no exception. I found the routing capabilities on par with professional multi-channel mixers, and the mic-pres are truly quiet and clean (un-powered ribbons will still need their own pre, though).
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy to interface, Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Versatile

Functional, elegant, built like a tank.

  • Excerpt: 16 Tracks of simultaneous inputs to my DAW with high quality preamps was the reason I purchased this unit. IT does not disappoint. It is amazingly flexible, sounds great, was easy to get up and running, and construction quality is - to say the least - rugged. I have been using Mackie products for a long time and this is one of their best. It is a bargain when compared to other solutions.

Mackie Onyx 1640-i Mixer Customer Review

By a customer from hotmail.com, zzounds.com
14 September 2010
  • Excerpt: The sound is present, clear and open. Believe the hype! The Onyx preamps are terrific - amazing really at this price point. I have tracked drums, guitars, piano, bass and vocals and gotten great results all around. Paired with decent mics, you have no excuse for getting a bad recording through this board.

The Mackie Onyx 1640i worth every cent!!

Andrew Bova, B&H Photo
5 May 2010
  • Excerpt: The flexibility and ease of use with this mixer are unbelievable. I run a mid size project studio doing everything from voice over work to full live band recording and production. When working with clients quick work flow and there comfort are key. The routing capability makes monitoring latency a total nonissue as well as the straight forward set up that doesn't leave the client waiting for you. The onyx pres live up to the great reputation that they have.

"if you can afford it, get one. but pass on the lower i-series units... theyre great but the 1640i is a joy to use and more versa"

By a customer from hotmail.com, zzounds.com
6 February 2010
  • Excerpt: very interesting sound out of this unit, i compared it directly to a yamaha n12, m-audio 192 (profire converters) and e-mu 1212m (protools hd converters). the yamaha and e-mu sound very similar (a lot of people rave about these converters, to me they're a little harsh and clinical for my taste)- the m-audio sounds extremely smooth, has great extended frequency response with buckets of headroom which i really prefer.
