"Superior Mixer/USB Interface For Both Home Studio and Live Productions"

We've been in the music biz since 1981, have seen a gazzilion products come and go over the years,so we can attest to Mackie's commitment to making good gear. The new ProFX 12v3 w/ONYX preamps and USB interface provides everything a working musician needs,including FX. While the AD/DA conversion isn't RME quality, it does provide excellent specs and a ton of clean headroom. We love it nearly as much as our XR12;between the two, we have it all covered. The ONYX pre's are easily as good as the Midas-designed,better actually for certain mics. This mixer is a The One.
The ONYX preamps are Top Tog at this price!
We totally dig all the included features as this mixer provides all the needed bells n whistles. Main plus for us is the MIX knob for use when recording latency free recordings. It's an Interface...or a mixer...or both,way awesome.
Ease of Use
Easiest mixer to use! Mackie has a rock solid driver for all their interfaces, making this one of the best USB 24/192 recording interfaces in this pricerange. Of course, this is the only 2in/4 out interface with all these features.
Mackie quality plus a real IEC cable, instead of an adapter!
Nothing beats it, price-wise or feature-wise.
The Wow Factor
Blew us away,for reals. This is one QUIET mixer and the ONYX preamps are serious kit. Add in a channel compressor w/FX,plus all the I/O routing options,and you have a mixer at the top of the heap.
4 decades in the Biz.
