Start your home studio with the Mackie Producer Bundle, a handy 2-channel recording solution including a slew of Mackie gear—the Onyx Producer 2·2 USB audio/MIDI interface, the MC-100 headphones, the EM-91C large-diaphragm condenser mic, the EM-89D dynamic handheld vocal mic, and two XLR cables.
Getting set up is easy: connect the interface to your computer via USB, plug the microphones into the interface's XLR inputs, and hook up the headphones with the supplied 1/4" adapter. Record vocals and instruments at up to 24-bit / 192 kHz resolution, interface your MIDI equipment, and use the included software bundle to create quality mixes in the comfort of your own home.
Mackie Onyx Producer 2·2 USB Audio/MIDI Interface
The Mackie Onyx Producer 2·2 is a USB audio/MIDI interface designed for high-resolution recording and monitoring in home and project studios. With its dual Onyx microphone preamps, combo XLR-1/4" inputs, and 5-pin MIDI I/O, the unit is particularly suitable for singer-songwriters and producers who make use of MIDI instruments and MIDI hardware. In your own project studio, you'll be able to connect to your monitors by means of the 1/4" jacks located on the rear of the unit.
The interface is relatively lightweight at 1.4 lb and provides a 1/4" headphone output, so you can take it with you wherever you go. Mackie's all-metal chassis hardware design aids in this endeavor, giving you a robust, roadworthy chassis for the circuitry inside. Should you monitor through headphones, a direct monitor knob is provided, which mitigates any latency as you record your audio. At minimum value, the knob ensures that you hear your direct input from the preamps. At maximum, you'll hear the signal as it's routed through the DAW. Use the knob to blend between the two extremes if you wish. The unit is designed to connect to your Mac or Windows computer over USB, and is bus powered by the host computer.
The Onyx Producer 2·2 features a download for ProTools | First and Waveform software and The Musician's Collection plug-in package including 23 high-quality plugins with BBD Delay, Level Lite, 304E EQ, and 304C Compressor. To authorize the software, simply input the mixer's serial number on the website.

Mackie EM-89D EleMent Series Dynamic Vocal Microphone
The Mackie EM-89D is an EleMent Series dynamic microphone offering tour-worthy construction and sonic performance tuned for clear reproduction of vocals and instruments in live stage applications and studio recording. Like all EleMent Series mics, the EM-89D presents an attractive combination of ruggedness, quality sound, and affordability.
The EM-89D utilizes a cardioid polar pattern, which rejects sound behind the mic to reduce the pickup of stage bleed and allow higher gain before feedback. The mic's dynamic moving-coil design requires no batteries or phantom power, and the balanced 3-pin XLR output ensures proper connectivity with stage boxes, mixers, and portable PA systems. The EM-89D includes a mic clip, an XLR cable, and a zipper pouch.
Mackie EM-91C EleMent Series Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
The Mackie EM-91C is an EleMent Series condenser microphone offering sturdy construction and sonic performance tuned for accurate reproduction of vocals and instruments in project studios and commercial facilities. Like all EleMent Series mics, the EM-91C presents an attractive combination of ruggedness, quality sound, and affordability.
The EM-91C utilizes a cardioid polar pattern, which rejects sound behind the mic to reduce the pickup of bleed from other instruments while attenuating room ambience to deliver a more direct, controlled sound. The mic's large-diaphragm condenser capsule operates via phantom power, and the balanced 3-pin XLR output ensures proper connectivity with audio interfaces, external preamps, and mixing consoles. The EM-91C includes a vibration-reducing shockmount and an XLR cable.
