So as you know, I'm furnishing my Podcast studio with gear. The heart of the studio will be my mixing console. I have a Mackie Onyx 1620i that I used originally, but Firewire ports are all but impossible to find on PCs today. One of my sources shared Firewire, while a superior connection, is going the way of the dinosaur...at least in PCs. The heir to the Mackie Onyx series of mixers appears to be the Mackie ProFx V2 (version 2) lineup, . The Vita Preamps are (allegedly) better than the Onyx preamps. The ProFx mixers come with on-board effects including compression as well.

Does anyone have any reviews of the ProFx series? T H A N X ! -Z-

Step up to digital.
XR18 will blow you away and comes with Midas Pres'.
Bill, thanx for sharing. Very impressive to be sure, but I don't think I could get past not having an actual, full tactile experience that only having the physical mixer could bring. Maybe after working with a physical mixer on regular basis I could make the jump. -Z-

I had the same concerns after 42+ years on analog boards. After 4 gigs, I'll never go back.

When you consider what you're getting for $ 699, it is a no brainer. NO OUTBOARD RACK NEEDED.

Every channel and every output has their own EQ, compressor, limiter, gates and 4 (that's FOUR) different effects that can be assigned. The other things it comes with are even more mind blowing and I'm still learning about them.

All that for about 6 pounds and I forgot to mention, if you do the same event or band often, you can save all of their setting for instant recall.
