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
We also got a look at their prototype Eurorack formant filter
Gaz Williams gives us some insight into the new version
