Onyx mic preamps

Onyx mixers feature an enhanced 3-Band “British Style” EQ based on the same circuit used on classic mixing consoles from the ‘60s and ‘70s. This version designed by Mackie has greater filter control, minimum phase shift and allows you to pinpoint specific frequency ranges. To create the Perkins EQ, Cal Perkins started with the Wien Bridge circuit topology inspired by the hallowed “British” desks of the ‘60s and ‘70s. This design essentially trades boost/cut capability for a wider, highly musical Q filter. After a mind-numbing amount of math, Cal was able to specify capacitor and resistor values that would give the EQ an extra 6dB of control (±15 dB) without excessively narrowing the “Q” or bandwidth of the filters. It's what we call a win-win.
We don’t want to have to imagine a world without effects, which is why we built them into the Mackie Onyx16. Dive through a deep collection of reverb, chorus, delay and more. Access a digital library of customizable digital effects that you can quickly save and recall during studio sessions or band rehearsal. Spend less time menu-diving and more time making music.
There’s nothing like feeling in control of your workstation. Mackie Onyx16 mixers feature powerful full-color LCDs with dedicated physical transport controls. Apply FX and recall up to six customizable presets using an intuitive single-knob interface. Record a stereo mix, browse files and play music direct to/from an SD card, all via Studio Command.
Bluetooth is a gamechanger on an analog mixer. Pair a compatible device via Bluetooth to stream audio through aux sends or the main mix. Bluetooth compatibility allows you to compare mix reference tracks or play background music when you need it.
A light in the dark
We know the struggle - nobody likes squinting at a mixing board when the lighting is dim. Mackie Onyx16 mixers are equipped with vibrant buttons and full color display for improved visibility, even in the darkest venues. On top of that, the backlit Mute and Solo buttons provide clear visibility so you’ll always know what’s going on in the mix.
