Mackie builds on a legacy

Mackie has released four new analogue mixers building on the legacy of the original Onyx 1620 mixer release back in 2004. In contrast to that model which sported a FireWire interface, the new Onyx8, Onyx12, Onyx16 and Onyx24 models have replaced this with USB connectivity. The models are named according to the number of tracks that each can record simultaneously.


The Onyx mixers are capable of high-resolution 24-bit/92kHz recording with low-noise, high-headroom mic preamps offering up to 60dB of gain. The inputs comprise a combination of mono and stereo channels and sport a three-band Perkins EQ based on British EQs found on 1960s and 1970s mixing consoles. The mono inputs feature semi-parametric midrange EQs and the stereo channels offer a fixed mid-band. USB connectivity allows all channels of multitrack audio to be sent to a DAW, while SD card compatibility enables users to record mixes without a computer. The mixers can also stream two stereo channels from a DAW, along with the option to hook up a Bluetooth device to stream audio into a channel.

Moving across to loudspeakers, the manufacturer has also debuted the SRT series of powered speakers. There are three new 1,600W speakers in the series – the 10-inch SRT210, 12-inch SRT212 and 15-inch SRT215 – intended for use by working musicians and DJs that are seeking an upgrade in sound quality without breaking the bank. In addition to being “built like a tank”, the cabinets boast maximum SPL – 133dB on the SRT215 – and feature Advanced Impulse DSP, input overload protection and wireless streaming and control.
