Product Description

The ProFX8 offers a complete and truly professional feature set, perfect for solo performers, small performing acts or any small venue that needs it all, without the hefty price tag. There's even USB I/O for recording the set. The "Pro" in ProFX stands for Pro. Professional tools, rugged build quality, small footprint...everything you need.

The ProFX8 is fully stocked, featuring four Mackie high-headroom, low-noise mic preamps, 3-band EQ, a built-in DI for direct connection of a guitar or bass, integrated effects, precision 7-band GEQ and more. All of these great features are housed in a rugged enclosure, in true Mackie "Built-Like-A-Tank" tradition. The ProFX8 has the right set of great-sounding tools to make your gig sound better and run smoother.

Live Sound Toolbox

Your job is to make things sound good. Maybe you're a solo performer playing covers at a Vegas hotel bar. Perhaps you have the honor of being the "engineer" of your band and not only do you play bass, you're also in control of the mix. No matter what the situation is, you need the tools to get the job done perfectly each and every show. High-headroom mic preamps with great-sounding effects, channel EQ, a built-in DI, plus precision GEQ to tune-up the room or monitor mix. The ProFX8 comes with all these features--it is truly the perfect live sound toolbox.

"Gig-Ready" RMFX(tm) Effects

The RMFX (Running Man FX) 32-bit effects processor brings "Gig Ready," useable effects to your mixes. Why scroll through hundreds of bizarre effects, like "ghost ambience?" Yeah, like anyone even knows what that means. Or how about winners like "delay+phaser2", which you'll never use in a million years. Those other mixers will leave your fingers raw from all the scrolling you have to do.

The RMFX processor features 16 solid FX that are known for their utility and usability. Small, medium and large room reverbs with a mix of a warm and bright characteristics puts your mix in the right space. Simple, rich choruses and an array of practical delays enable you to create professional mixes without requiring a two-hour sound check. Basically, we've delivered the choicest parts of a full rack of gear, right at your fingertips, that is easy to master, allowing you to look and sound really good at your next gig. Really, really good.

Record and Stream via USB

With all the right tools for the job, the ProFX8 allows you to create memorable mixes, but even with all those features, portability is paramount and you can't be burdened with lugging around additional equipment. No worries, integrated USB I/O takes the pain out of recording. Just connect the ProFX8 to a laptop, start up your DAW or music production software (such as your included free download of Tracktion) and you can record the whole mix. You can even stream music from your laptop during breaks. Once you get home, record more tracks or use the ProFX8 to playback some tunes during the next BBQ. Unless you're a vegetarian...not that there's anything wrong with that.

The innovative "USB Thru" switch allows for an impressive live/recording setup when using performance software like Ableton Live or Reason. When gigging, stream the output of your performance software (or iTunes, for that matter) into the ProFX8. Combine that signal with anything plugged into the mixer, and send the whole thing back to the computer for recording. Archiving your integrated live performances has never been easier!

Legendary Mackie Durability

Mackie is known for building mixers that are "Built-Like-A-Tank" and the ProFX8 is no exception. All of its tender bits are securely encased in a solid steel chassis. No only that, the impact-resistant side pieces are made of ultra-tough ABS, adding extra protection where it is most likely to fall...not that you drop things.

PA Made Painless

Mackie Precision Passive and Mackie Active LogosSimple is better. A utility mixer like the ProFX8 is an integral part of a ludicrously simple Mackie PA system that sounds great. The only choice is whether to go "active" or "passive" with your loudspeaker setup.

Active-- Just add Mackie SR, SA, SRM Series Active Loudspeakers or SWA Series Active Subwoofers

Passive -- Add a Mackie FR or FRS Series Stereo Power Amplifier and S200 or C Series Precision Passive Loudspeakers

The legendary quality of Mackie loudspeakers combined with the utility of the ProFX8 is a lethal combination that will suit just about any size venue. Just add enough speakers, and you're golden.

Budget Friendly

The ProFX Series Compact Effects Mixers strike the perfect balance. They offer all the right tools to get the job done well, sport the popular compact footprint that Mackie is known for and are also the most budget-friendly of all the Mackie sound reinforcement mixers. Our competition either doesn't have the expansive feature set of the ProFX Series, or they simply will not survive the test of time. You are investing in your mixer and the ProFX will be there for you at every gig, ready to roll.

Customer Reviews
4 out of 5 (18 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "So Far So Good"
Overall: I used an 8 mic input Mackie a few weeks back and really liked it. So I ordered this smaller version, which is all I need. I have not been impressed with Mackie but to me this little mixer matches nicely with the SRM450ʻs our guitar player had. We play 5 piece bluegrass, 4 condenser mics and bass plugged in. It does what I need, the sliders and 7 band eq are handy,I mix from stage while playing so I needed simple. I do worry about the reviews I have read, but time will tell. For now it works and is quiet with good head room. The effects are acceptable and the 3 band eq is not as sensitive as the Allen Heath ZED I also have, but it is much easier to use live while playing.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Buyer beware Dont buy it unless you need stress in your life."
Sound: The sound of the mic pres is acceptable however they do give out and channel 5and 6 on mine have gone dead. I have not liked dealing with Mackie or the Service center I keep getting the runaround and no one knows whats going on. The product Mackie Pro Fx 8 has only seen three gigs and is not working. Quality: I think Mackie sold there name and is now useing some complan called LOUD that has poor quality control. Ive heard from a few folks that there are problems with there Pro Fx boards. While the board is inexpensive it really shows that the quality is sub par as well. I would not buy this again. Service it terable. I have purcased things and had problmes with other products and ther service was fantastic. This is not the case with Mackie. Value: This is a lower cost board but not really reliable and it is not worth what you pay. Manufacturer Support: I was able to reach Mackie, after a few phone calls and when I was told that they would replace my board if there was a circit board problem, I was later told no thery were going to try to fix it. Mackie uses area service centers and dose not do the repair work themselves. My board has been tired up for a few weeks and still no real answer to who is fixing or how. Orgianlly Mackie said to bring to a service center and that if they the service center saw that it was a board problme they woud just send me a new one. I dont have a new one and its the board that was the problme. I would not buy another Mackie product ever. The Wow Factor: It looks nice and has a nice layout Overall: Im looking at replacing it today
