Mackie Expands ProFX Mixer Series


Mackie has announced two additions to its popular ProFX Compact Effects Mixer series -- the ProFX16 and ProFX22. Here's what they have to say about them...
With increased channel count and useful tools like dedicated inline compression, both new models are perfect for mid-sized venues and bands looking for a do-it-all live sound solution.
"The ProFX line has always been about maximum utility," said Matt Redmon, Mackie Product Manager. "Now, with the new ProFX16 and ProFX22, larger applications can benefit from Mackie's out-of-the-box live sound solution."
Like all ProFX Series mixers, the new 16-channel ProFX16 and 22-channel ProFX22 deliver a host of features designed to eliminate the need for additional rackmount gear. On the front end, Mackie low-noise, high-headroom preamps work with LED metering and 60mm faders on each channel to keep levels in check. Every channel also features 3-band EQ. All ProFX mixers offer an integrated 32-bit RMFX™ effects processor with 16 "Gig-Ready" FX and a 7-band graphic EQ for simple tuning of mains or monitors. The built-in USB interface allows the user to record the show and stream back music for breaks or integration into the mix. A rugged, solid steel chassis with protective ABS sidecheeks offers superior impact-resistance. The new ProFX16 and ProFX22 not only increase the number of mic pres needed for larger applications, they also feature dedicated inline compression for simple, one-knob compression of critical vocals and instruments.
"They're easy to operate, sound great and virtually eliminate the need for expensive, heavy outboard gear," remarked Redmon. "They're perfect for any performance venue, house of worship or band that needs a ton of professional tools and are on a budget."
The new ProFX16 and ProFX22 join the popular ProFX Series, which also features the ultra-compact ProFX8 and ProFX12.
Pricing and Availability:
Both new ProFX models will be available worldwide in Q2, 2011. Pricing is as follows: ProFX16 - Euro list price €599 Inc tax / UK list price of £499 Inc Vat, ProFX22 - Euro list price €799 Inc tax / UK list price of £699 Inc Vat.
