Onyx analog consoles

Mackie has introduced , a new family of FireWire-capable analog consoles that includes "extremely low-noise microphone preamps and circuitry, tremendous durability, plenty of direct instrument inputs, and combines them into a modern footprint that includes a FireWire option for integration into any computer-based system [via an optional FireWire card for $500]." They will begin shipping in second quarter, starting at $640.

The Onyx 1220 ($640) is a 12-channel (4 mic/line inputs and eight line inputs) mixer with 2-buses and a three band Perkins EQ with sweepable midrange. The Onyx 1620 ($620) is a 16-channel (8 mic/line inputs and four stereo line inputs) mixer with 2-buses and a four-band Perkins EQ with dual sweepable midrange. The Onyx 1640 ($1540) is a 16-channel (16 mono mic/line inputs) mixer with 4-buses and a four-band Perkins EQ with dual sweepable midrange. Like Mackie's popular 1604-VLZ Pro, the Onyx 1640 also includes a rotatable I/O pod that can be easily configured for rack or desktop use.
