Exclusive: Mackie Releases Two New Additions to the Onyx Family
We’re very excited to be able to announce two additions to the popular Mackie Onyx family – the Onyx Blackjack and Onyx Blackbird.
What is the Onyx Series?
The Onyx Series opens up a new world of options for anyone interested in computer recording.
To record professionally these days, you need the hands-on control and routing of a premium analog mixer, a stellar, high-resolution interface and the ability to work with any DAW. To create world-class live mixes, you need a mixer that offers great-sounding, professional components and clear cut workflow that lets you dial everything in quickly and easily.
Problem solved – Onyx.
What’s new to the Onyx series?
“Our new Onyx interfaces offer unmatched recording quality,” remarked Mackie product manager, Matt Redmon. “The Onyx preamps alone are far superior to anything in this price range. Combined with the high-end converters and workflow-friendly features and design...the value is undeniable.”
The Onyx Blackjack…
Is an ultra-compact desktop 2x2 USB interface, perfect for the home studio. It features two acclaimed Onyx mic preamp channels, each featuring built-in DIs for connecting guitars, etc. Separate level control for studio monitors and headphones, along with true analog hardware monitoring take the guesswork out of zero-latency recording. It is bus-powered, with a rugged, ergonomic chassis perfect for both portable and home studio applications.
The Onyx Blackbird…
The rackmount Onyx Blackbird delivers studio-grade recording via eight Onyx mic preamps. A 16x16 FireWire interface, Blackbird also features 8x8 ADAT and wordclock I/O, providing ultimate expandability.
There are two “Super Channels” on the front panel with dedicated low-cut switches, phantom power and true hardware monitoring options for quick zero-latency tracking.
The other channels are equally flexible, utilizing the powerful Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer for quick setup of independent mixes and the ability to route any input to any output. Monitor, main, alt and dual headphone outs with dedicated source selection and level control ensures there are plenty of mix routing options.
The Mackie Onyx Blackbird and Blackjack will be available at Dolphin Music very soon! Keep on checking!
