PROFX8 8-Ch Compact Effects Mixer
he 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
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™ Effects
The all-new RMFX™ (Running Man FX) 32-bit effects processor brings “Gig Ready,” useable effects to your mixes. 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.
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 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 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!
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.
