Originally announced last September, the Mackie ProFXv3 Series of audio mixers made their debut at last month’s NAMM Show.
The half-dozen mixers are intended for use both in live sound settings as well as for home studios, content creators and live streaming.
The new series is based around the six-channel ProFX6v3, 10-channel ProFX10v3, 12-channel ProFX12v3, 16-channel ProFX16v3, 22-channel ProFX22v3, and 30-channel ProFX30v3.
All the mixers have some features in common, including Mackie’s Onyx mic preamps, GigFX effects engine, 24-bit/192 kHz USB recording and shared design cues. The mixers also come with a variety of software, notably a copy of the Avid Pro Tools|First DAW, as well as the Mackie Musician Collection, a set of 23 Avid plug-ins.
Mackie says that the Onyx mic preamps offer up to 60 dB of gain, while its new GigFX high-resolution effects engine provides 24 effects such as reverbs, delays and more. The mixers feature a built-in USB interface; a dedicated Blend knob that swaps between DAW output and direct latency-free monitoring; single-knob compression; Hi-Z switches and more.
Avid plug-ins provided with the mixers include the 304C compressor and 304E equalizer. In addition, users will also get Waveform OEM DAW software with its DAW Essentials Collection of 16 plug-ins.
The mixers range from $199.99 for the ProFX6v3 up to $1,169.99 for the flagship ProFX30v3.
