    Fantastic Mixer

    By Dan Holmes

    from south jersey

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    If my band ever breaks up, I'll buy this mixer for myself
    this mixer is fantastic, easy to use, and so versitale. I have a 4 piece cover band and we put all four mics, the guitar, and the bass through and this mixer can handle all that and more! I also love how everything is labled and even if you're not tech savy, you can still figure it out. it's also nice that it's powered!
    this thing is durable. my band uses it at least 4 times a month for shows
    this is a good value because you also have all the built in effects

    2 years of dependability

    By Sunn Kram

    from Colorado

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    I have used this mixer for constant rehearsal and 4 or 5 gigs a month for about 2 years and had no problems whatsoever. I am selling it now only because I am working on a different project that requires far fewer channels. If the features fit your needs, it will work well. Personally, I would have liked one or two more aux busses to accomodate multitrack live recordings but thats typically a feature of bigger desks. Mackies are built well as they always have been. Not the most progressive designs but they sound great and are extremely durable (I also beat one of their powered boxes to death for years and it never failed). I REALLY enjoy the mic preamps here as well. Mixer companies can be frustratingly vague about which products use which preamps but look into it, it makes a serious difference. I have A/B'd the CFX16 with a PROFX12 and this sounds a LOT better at least from the mics, great clarity and headroom. As a side note, the road ready case for this mixer is well worth it, 16 channels is too big to huck around on its own.

    Unbelievable!!

    By dvdwoods

    from Srugeon Bay, WI

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    I just got this thing a few days ago. All I can say is "unbelievable!" Although, for some reason, I didn't get a user manual I was up and running in no time because the layout is so well done. I use it for my home studio and what a difference from my old dinosaur board. The onboard effects are amazing and the stereo "image" they produce is unreal. Crystal clear audio. The controls are spot on and sensitive so I get the exact sound I'm looking for. Mackie, JOB WELL DONE!!!

    great mixer

    By Vintage drum slayer

    from Steamboat springs, CO

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    I've been using this mixer for 5 years now and has always performed flawlessly. It's been used for gigs and in my home studio without ever having issues. The only minor problem was the gooseneck light input stopped working but was past the warranty and wasn't necessary to fix at the time. It's powered by a QSC 1450 for mains, Crown 402 for monitors. The power is conditioned by a Furman PL8II and has a BBE 482 maximizer, DBX 231 EQ for help in sound control. Amazing control for every situation and am still messing around with more options. Way to go Mackie. Looking forward to the new Powered mixers debut to happen so I can purchase one for smaller venues. Thanks.

    Great for Live Mixing Only

    By DJ Big Monay

    from North East Florida

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    I have owned the Mackie CFX 12,16 & 20 and I would say that they are all excellent mixers for live sound applications!They have everything in one package mixer, efx and eq. Which is great! Just add a compressor into the main inserts and go! However, if you want a mixer to use in the studio and for live sound I would recommend you get the Mackie 1642 VLZ 3! All of the VLZ3 line are excellent for both live and studio use. They, VLZ 3 series, have excellent sound quality with very low self noise. However, with the VLZ 3 series you will need outboard gear. I have found over the last 12 years that Mackie makes great products overall! I own a lot of Mackie Gear that I have used over those years that are still in excellent working and astetic condition.

    Best live sound console 4 giging bands!

    By Heajerk

    from Viginia Beach

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    I have had this mixer for 4 years. I bought it to replace an Alesis Studio32 that got a beer spilled on it :( The sound quality is the best you'll find for this price, or even a few hundred $$ more I would say. I love the fact that it has 2 aux sends and 2 fx sends. I run 3 separate monitor mixes for the other vocalist/guitar player in my band, myself and our drummer. You can use the external fx send as another aux. Most boards in this price range only have 1 aux and 1 fx send if that. Also, the subwoofer xlr out comes in handy. I use powered tops and subs and this enables me to not even hookup my crossover. I use this board, my DBX Driverack PX, 2 Mackie SRM450's, 2 or 4 SRM350's and 2 Carvin powered subs and this is the best simple yet completely transparent setup I have constructed over the years. And, it all fits into my SUV with room for guitars! I just ordered the CFX12 for acoustic gigs to save some space but keep all of the same features.

    Solid Mixer for playing Live.

    By keith_lake77

    from Macon, MO

    Comments about Mackie CFX16 mkII Mixer:

    I've been using this mixer with a 5 piece rock band for a solid year now, playing almost every weekend. This thing is built like a tank. The sound quality coming straight out of the board is very clear and needs only minimal EQing. The XLR outputs are very handy for sending your signal to power amps, but be advised that the Sub output still needs to be crossed over in order to get a clear sound out of your subs. I think the options that are packed into this board are a great value for the money, and I haven't had any problems with them at all. The only issue that I have with this mixer is that you have to almost max out the gain in order to get a good level on your mic channels. The pre-amps are good quality and are crystal clear, but why do I have to turn the gain up to almost max to get a solid signal? On a board that is this packed with bells and whistles I would like a Pan option, the pan knobs are used to send your individual channels to Sub groups where you can then send them to the mains. There is no way to send the signal straight out to the mains and then pan your signal to one side or the other. There are a ton of outputs and options for Monitors and the on-board effects are nice so that I don't have to have my off-board effects unit. All in all it is a great mixer and I would buy one again.
