Description

The ProFX8 mixing desk by Mackie offers the perfect solution for small bands, solo artists or budding producers with a budget to stick to. The 8 channel desk offers on-board 32bit FX, 4 low noise XLR mic inputs, USB input and output and a graphic EQ.

Mackie have really put some thought into which effects to add to their ProFX mixers, with several different size reverbs, some nice chorus effects and some expensive sounding reverbs, you wont spend hours trawling through useless unusable effects. The unit also comes with an on-board graphic EQ so that the band can tune their own sound to suit whichever venue you may be playing in.

Integrated USB I/O takes the pain out of recording. Just connect the ProFX8 to a laptop, start up your included copy of Tracktion 3 Music Production Software (or almost any DAW software out there) and you can record the whole mix. You can even stream music from your laptop.

With a rugged build and a price that will not break the bank, the ProFX8 is the solution to get the perfect live sound for your band.
