OVERVIEW

Personal PA system with a portable, battery-powerable design for amazing sound anywhere.

The Mackie FreePlay at its core is an extremely portable, personal PA system for performers, presenters and general music lovers. From the stage to the boardroom and the backyard, FreePlay delivers a full range sound with a high-output 8” woofer that adds fullness with a rich, detailed bass response. There are two combo inputs on the rear of the FreePlay to connect a balanced or unbalanced mic, instrument or line-level signal using an XLR or 1/4” connector. That means you can plug in your vocal mics, guitars, keyboards, and more.

The FreePlay is also able to sync with your Bluetooth enabled devices instantly at the touch of a button, so setting up a mic and guitar, then adding some backing tracks from your iPhone is as simple as it sounds. And speaking of sound, the overall sound of the FreePlay is true to Mackie’s long legacy of live sound performance. It’s powerful, with a full-range detail that is well suited for the variety of applications it can handle. At -10dB it has a frequency response from 65Hz to 20kHz with a maximum peak SPL of 114dB, so you’ll have plenty of juice to stand out in the crowd. Right out of the box the FreePlay sounds great, but what fun would it be if you didn’t have control over it? That’s why Mackie included a built-in 4-channel mixer with access to volume, EQ and effects for each channel right from the hardware or via the FreePlay Connect app for iPhone and iPod Touch.

Made To Be Mobile
Portability is FreePlay’s number one attribute. It’s battery operable, so it can go anywhere, at anytime. All you need is the optional rechargeable lithium-ion battery that can be purchased separately along with other great FreePlay accessories, or you can use 8 standard D-cell batteries. This, along with Bluetooth connectivity, turns the FreePlay into a free-roaming music box that can go from your backyard to the park, the beach, the gym, pretty much anywhere you go. Pairing your iPhone with the FreePlay is easy. There’s a Bluetooth sync button on the rear of the unit, just press and hold until your iPhone recognizes the FreePlay. Once paired, you can stream music from your favorite apps and control it from anywhere in the room. This means streaming music from iTunes, Spottily, Soundcloud, YouTube, pretty much anything. It’s perfect for weddings, birthdays, BBQs, Karaoke night, and more.

Perform or Present
The most common use for FreePlay will be as a personal PA system for street performances or small to mid-sized presentations. For performers, you can play along with backing tracks using Bluetooth audio streaming from your device, and you can also wirelessly control all mic levels, channel EQ and digital effects. FreePlay is also ideal for corporate events where a lightweight, compact set up is required, which is great for restaurants, hotels, schools and more. With either application you have complete control over your sound including channel levels, channel EQ and effects levels. There are 16 great-sounding effects built-into the FreePlay like reverbs, delays and choruses that are perfect for vocals and a wide range of instruments.

    Sounds Great!

    Comments about Mackie FreePlay Personal PA System:

    This works like it says it does. It is not made for a club. I bought it for when I do weddings and have to play at the ceremony, it is easier than setting up twice. The effects sound good. The Bluetooth is unreliable, (Hard to connect and disconnects on it's own). All in all it is a nice portable system.

      Comments about Mackie FreePlay Personal PA System:

      The free control app sold me on this unit and makes this unit stand out as a uniquely functional stand alone do all portable PA/monitor. Calling this a PA is a bit of a stretch but you can address the public with it.
      This has an old school boom box vibe but with a lot more boom and suitable to amplify voice and live instruments. Minor draw backs would be this is not stereo linkable and only one bluetooth device is allowed. It would be nice if I had "control" of the mackie with my bluetooth while a guest was streaming with their bluetooth, but this is not possible.

      Built in effects are usable. The EQ is effective. Bluetooth control is cherry on the icing. Paired with my Roland KC-1 10" powered sub makes an amazing portable full spectrum system

        When I don't travel with it, I use it as stage monitor and this small wonder works great. I downloaded Apps on my Android pad and it works like a charm. Recommend for any musicians pros and novice alike.

          Comments about Mackie FreePlay Personal PA System:

          my biggest concern with freeplay before buying it was probably that it wouldnt get loud enough. i am more than happy to say... this product is not a toy. it sounds great, and it puts out more than enough volume for house parties and small shows. i've used it for a few small gigs now, but use it even more often just as background music while doing stuff around the house... even ran karaoke with it once with my kids! put reverb on the vocals and everything! mackie put all my doubts to rest for sure, and i recommend this piece to anyone looking for a small PA system for parties of 50 to maybe 100 people.
