Mackie has announced the launch of the new Mix Series Compact Mixers with three new models, the Mix5 5-Channel Compact Mixer, the Mix8 8-Channel Compact Mixer and the Mix12FX 12-Channel Compact Mixer with Effects. Mix Series mixers are the most affordable mixer produced by Mackie. They say that, designed to maintain great sounding audio from any source, the new line of compact mixers offer a feature set perfect for smaller applications. Mackie believes that, building on their impressive 25-year history of designing reliably rugged mixers, the new Mix Series delivers proven sound quality and straightforward features that don't compromise in performance.
"Not every application is complex. Sometimes you just need to get the audio from point A to point B, but that doesn't mean you should have to sacrifice on quality," commented Matt Redmon, Mackie Sr. Product Manager. "That's why we've given users a new choice - an affordable mixer series with the Mackie stamp of approval, so users on a budget never have to compromise."
Mackie says that the Mix5, Mix8 and Mix12FX compact mixers feature the right mix of I/O, EQ and routing for applications that don't require a lot of inputs or multiple racks of output. They tell us that, ideal for singer/songwriters, small band rehearsals or instrumentalists on the go, Mix Series mixers deliver high-quality Mackie preamps and electronics in proven high headroom, low-noise designs. Additionally, they say thta Mix12FX offers a selection of 12 integrated effects including reverbs, choruses and delays to easily create mixes that sound great. Each model features an all-metal chassis, high-quality components and a sleek rugged design that's built to last.
"And if your application requires a little more, you can simply step up to our bestselling ProFX, our flagship VLZ4 or Onyx lines," Redmon concluded. "Either way, wouldn't you rather mix on a Mackie?"
