Mackie onyx 820i firewire

Postby Akishakar В» 26.02.2020

Henry Mudd (possibly ABB but could be ABAA), with John Gardiner and William Cooke witnessed the Will of Benjamin Beavin dated 10-8-1788, prob.

Replacing Mackie's Compact Onyx series, the Onyx-i mixers have a sleek new black-and-steel look while gaining some subtle upgrades. I spent some time with the new Onyx i, Mackie's smallest hybrid mixer yet see Fig. All in all, I was very pleased with its smooth sound, clean electronics and headache-free computer compatibility. Designing a small-format mixer that's extremely portable and still delivers the goods across a wide spectrum of applications is no simple task.

Whether it's used as a production mixer for your studio's computer, as a keyboard submixer, in a stage laptop or P. Though it has only eight analog input channels, each has a unique set of features designed to make sure that no matter what your source is, you'll always have a way to handle it without sacrificing quality see Web Clip 1. Other than FireWire, all connections are analog, with no digital audio inputs or outputs.

Inputs are on the top panel, with a pair of FireWire ports and most outputs around back see Fig. In use, they sounded very smooth and even, capable of shaping the sound without becoming harsh and of handling high-gain signals without changing character. The first two channels are designed for microphones, line signals or guitars, with 3-band mid-sweep EQs, a low-cut filter, inserts and a hi-Z switch for DI-style instrument input.

The third strip is a hybrid channel labeled that has a single Onyx mic preamp and stereo line inputs. When you plug a source into the channel strip's mono mic input, the signal is sent equally to channels 3 and 4; it's a trade-off because the i becomes a 7-channel mixer when you use the third mic pre. The strip sports a 4-band Perkins EQ with two gently peaking fixed mid bands rather than a sweepable mid.

The rest of the mixer is straightforward, with Mackie-standard design elements such as tape inputs and outputs on RCA jacks. The two flexible aux sends can be pre- or post-fader, and each has separate gain knobs for send and return.

You can also route aux return 2 back into aux send 1 for adding reverb to monitor mixes, for example. Also on the top panel, a convenient talkback section has a recessed omni microphone whose signal you can route to the headphone mix or to the aux sends.

For a video clip that surveys the i's layout and features, see Web Clip 1 at emusician. The i is both physically and sonically solid, with a well-measured evenness to the summed output.

I didn't have any trouble hot-swapping the mixer even while my audio apps were running although this really isn't recommended. Despite Mackie's claims that the i wasn't yet compatible with Apple Snow Leopard, it worked perfectly for me without any complications on both Mac OS Windows users will need to install a simple driver, but otherwise the device is class-compliant for all applications except Pro Tools.

You can even route the aux sends or the master bus across the FireWire connection if you're willing to replace the FireWire and track sends. These are definitely trade-offs, but working within such a small format requires sacrifices.

The i's only significant weakness is that the FireWire bus returns only a single stereo feed to the mixer, routable to the Control Room section or assignable directly to channels 7 and 8 disabling the analog inputs. This workflow bottleneck kept me from buying an original Onyx mixer.

It's a shame because the entire FireWire module sounds really clean; eight channels via FireWire would make the i a terrific choice for many more situations. The largest model in the Onyx-i line, the i, does include a complete 16x16 version of the same interface, but offering the same flexibility in the smaller formats would have been a huge benefit. The Control Room outputs have a volume knob on the front panel, but the Alt outputs do not.

Despite this cost-cutting limitation on the FireWire side, the Onyx i is definitely designed with precision, built solidly and capable of creating reliably even and warm tones that other Mackie mixers are known for.

Fans of that sound should be really pleased at the integration with Pro Tools, and Pro Tools users will be pleased at the prospect of a new front-end option. Asher Fulero asherfulero. So why does their outlaw reputation precede them? Avid which said it hadn't tested Mackie's equipment and wouldn't guarantee its compatibility does not endorse using Pro Tools with any hardware interfaces but its own.

As of this writing, though, Mackie and Avid are in negotiations to work out a deal. I really enjoyed using a Mackie board to run Pro Tools software; it felt freeing somehow and was definitely more sonically and physically solid than my old Digi ever was and less prone to crashing. In the end, it is Pro Tools users who stand to benefit the most, with a wider range of options available to meet their various needs.

No Digi or M-Audio hardware needed. If you need to adjust these further, you can still use the channel input-gain trims. On the FireWire integration side, firewire Onyx i gives mackie a lot of flexibility as to how to communicate with your 820i. So why does their outlaw reputation precede them?

If you need more inputs, larger siblings in the Onyx-i family offer the same crisp, clean sound and multitrack FireWire output. The two flexible aux sends can be pre- or post-fader, and each has separate gain knobs for send and return. Stage Speakers.
