Now that these mixers are official, Mackie were showing off the range at their swanky hotel suite, just across the road from the main Earls Court halls.


We caught up with Woody - a Brit who's moved over to the US to work with Mackie and has had quite an involvement with the Onyx i Series development.


The Mackie Onyx i Series are available in the following configurations, I must admit the 1640i looks like the daddy when it comes to integration and routing options, but the other models offer the same core Onyx mic preamps and close audio interface integration.

820i - 8 Channels - 2 Onyx mic amps, 3 stereo inputs

1220i - 12 channels, 4 Onyx mic amps, 4 stereo inputs

1620i - 16 channels, 8 Onyx mic amps, 4 stereo inputs

1640i - 16 channels, 16 Onyx pres, 16 firewire returns, 4 subs, 6 aux

I suppose this is their response to the Allen and Heath R16. Any ideas on how the two of them compare, soundwise?

how exactly will this work with the new macbook pro's as their all firewire 800 and the onyx i series are all 400?. will it come with a 400 to 800 converter?
