This Mackie mixer is just perfect for my home transmission station. I feed my Heil Microphone into it and then use the AUX send to go to the EQ and then feed it back to another line in. Great for the price. One thing is missing.. It needs a power switch!

My Rotary club bought this to use routing and mixing audio for our hybrid in-person and Zoom meetings. Has the functionality we need. Light, but sturdy, with clean sound.

My Behringer X1204USB mixer died after many years of faithful service. After looking around, I noticed that a lot of small USB mixers don't have proper send and returns - this is a key feature for me as I like to do mix-minus with my friends on Zoom and Discord. This mixer - for less than $100 - sounds great, gives me just what I need and nothing more. One thing folks like about USB is that there's no messing with line levels into your computer. If you know what you're doing you can set the input level on the computer just where you need and almost never bother with it again. Build quality is great, the knobs have the right amount of firmness when turned. Layout is mostly clear, though the phantom power button being between the headphone and aux master is a weird choice. One thing that I didn't realize until I was trying it out is that the aux send is a mono output. Not a huge dealbreaker (especially for things like vocal effects sends or mix-minus to a remote listener who needs to hear other content) but worth noting. It does the vast majority of what I want it to do without issue. Strongly recommended.

does the job

Bough a mix 8 to handle some basic line-level mixing for a video control room monitoring. Does the job, but construction quality is pretty lightweight compared to VLZ mixers. If you need static installed, basic, this will work, but would prefer a VLZ for anything being moved around.

Great product

This product was recommended by the specialist in the store. It does everything he said it was do and exceeded my expectations.

Not as advanced as it might seem

This mixer seems well built and I can see it working perfectly for many applications but they added some features that are just barely there but fall short in practice. The major flaw is that Aux Send/Receive features. It's odd that it has a single mono send but then has a stereo receive and while that can be worked around what can't in many applications is the lack of control of the receive audio. To put it plainly, there is no way to separate the raw mix input and the post-effects input. While this might work fine for things such a reverb that only add to the signal, the mixer simply can't be used with effects processors such as delay units and noise gates which require the mic input to be removed from the main mix. Additionally the tape input has no controls so the level coming in needs to be exactly what you require as there is no way to adjust it after it enters the mixer.

Muy bueno

Asked by: michel m.
Hi Michael, I have yet to try this with the Mix8 but I will look at it tonight. Have you tried engaging the To Phones button and disengaging the To Mix button? I am guess you have since it seems to be the way it would be done if possible. Though looking at the location of the buttons I am now wondering if they send the RCA inputs to the phones or to Main since they are stacked next to the RCA connectors. I'll do some more looking and experimenting on the 8 and let you know. - Craig
