Mackie has unveiled the newest members of it’s evolving Onyx family - the Onyx Premium 4-bus Mid-Format Live Sound Consoles. With the additions of the new Onyx 24.4 24-channel and Onyx 32.4 32-channel consoles, Mackie tell us that they have brought the innovative feature set and unequalled sound quality of their Onyx Series to the world of mid-format live mixers, effectively filling the gap between the Onyx Small-Format and 8-bus Onyx 80 Large-Format Live Sound Consoles.
John Boudreau, Mackie’s Live Sound Product Manager had this to tell us “With each new Onyx introduction, Mackie establishes a new price/performance benchmark. With the introduction of the new Onyx 24.4 and Onyx 32.4, we’re now bringing this winning formula to a market that we have successfully dominated for nearly a decade thanks to our award-winning SR24.4 and SR32.4 consoles.�
The Onyx 4-bus Series mid-format consoles incorporate a host of new features like a full complement of Mackie’s flagship Onyx preamps that combine greater fidelity, increased headroom and unequalled sonic performance with greater radio frequency rejection and wider dynamic range.
Additional Onyx 4-Bus features include a fully balanced signal chain for lower noise and wider frequency range, as well as Mackie’s exclusive Cal Perkins-designed four-band EQ circuitry, renowned for its highly musical “British� sound and wider-range control.
Both Onyx 4-Bus consoles also feature a 6x2 matrix, 100mm Panasonic faders, and a fully assignable stereo compressor/limiter section built upon the high-quality THAT 4301 chip. This compressor/limiter features independent threshold, ratio and fast/slow attack controls, and can be assigned to the main output mix, Groups 1 and 2, or Groups 3 and 4.
