The Mackie ProFX16 16-Channel Desktop Sound Reinforcement Mixer with USB is a cost-effective solution for mid-sized venues without the space or budget for lots of gear. There are 10 low-noise Mackie mic preamps that offer a +50dB gain range. There is also dedicated inline compression for the critical inputs on channels 5-8. A built-in 32-bit RMFX processor offers 16 different "Gig-Ready" reverbs, choruses, and delays to add depth to your sound. The precision 7-band EQ allows you to tune your mains and monitors, while 3-band EQ with sweepable midrange is provided on the mono channels. There are 8 mono and 4 stereo line inputs, plus individual channel mute switches and overload indicators.

Each of the mic inputs has an 18dB/octave 100Hz low cut filter, and there are inserts on the mono mic/line channels (1-4) for connecting outboard processors. The mixer has 60mm faders for the input channels, subgroups, and mains for precise control. The mic inputs offer 48V phantom power and LED indicators for use with condenser microphones. There is an FX mute button, which is also controllable via the footswitch input. A break switch will mute all of the channels, ideal for music playback between sets.

A USB interface makes it easy to record shows or play music via a Mac or PC. You can also stream subgroups 1-2 or the main L/R channels to your computer for recording. There is a stereo USB/tape I/O with input level control to the mains, as well as a convenient USB return to the stereo channel for implementation of auxes, EQ, and more. Tracktion 3 Music Production software is included for recording and editing your work. The software works on Mac and PC platforms.

The mixer offers balanced XLR and balanced/unbalanced 1/4" main outputs, as well as control room and headphone outputs with rotary level controls. The rugged steel chassis provides lasting durability for a lifetime of professional use. Optional rack ears (sold separately) allow you to mount the mixer in a standard equipment rack. The mixer also features a switching multi-voltage power supply for convenient international use.

        Bought this on a Sunday and used it to run a show the next day -- it was exactly what I was looking for, easy to use and well thought out. Haven't had a chance to try some of the advanced features yet, but it was exactly what I was looking for in every way.

                    When we needed a portable board for remote Praise Band venues, I naturally called on my past experience with Mackie. This Mackie lived up or surpassed the performance of the similar Mackie's in the past. The in-board EQ and effects saves having to lug extra equipment. The "straight-up settings" of the board are a little flat in my opinion, but that was easily remedied with Mackie's excellent EQ. The only real bad thing was the power cord that came with the unit was defective.

                      I use this mixer at a nightclub that hosts 4 to 5 bands every week. It sounds great and with the built in graphic that can be assigned to one of the Monitor outs...Well, that makes it even better. As we've only had it a short time I have no negative comments. Note: read the manual if you aren't sure.
