Mackie say that, featuring extensive FireWire integration, studio-quality mic pres and British-style EQ, the groundbreaking Onyx-i Mixers combine the best aspects of premium analog mixing with a high-quality computer interface.
Pro Tools M-Powered 8 users must purchase the Mackie Universal Driver upgrade ($49.99 USD) at www.mackie.com. Once the driver is downloaded and installed, the Onyx 820i, 1220i, 1620i and 1640i mixers can be used with Pro Tools M-Powered 8 software. Onyx-i Series mixers are compatible with all other DAWs right out of box (Core Audio compliant for Mac; included drivers for PC).
John Boudreau, VP of LOUD's Music Gear group, told us, "Historically, one of Mackie's primary goals has been to offer universally compliant recording tools -- from HUI and Mackie Control Universal to the new Onyx-i Series mixers. Audio engineers want to combine the familiar workflow of an analog mixer with the world's most popular DAWs. Mackie Onyx-i mixers now make this possible." Pricing and Availability:
