Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

This is a nice little unit. Nice sounding pres and with the firewire interface it makes it even better. The thing that you should be aware of is if you do go with the firewire card, almost EVERYTHING is post interface in. So AUX/INSERT/FADER/and EQ are all post interface. So forget about running your favorite compressor or module through this guy.All in all it makes a nice performance unit, but for recording, I'd pass and save for something else.

Bang for the Buck!

By dplasvegas-6zLgn

from Las Vegas, NV

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

This mixer is perfect for the home studio. It looks very heavy duty and I haven't had any problems with it so far. It has all the inputs and outputs that you will ever need. It's easy to use and only makes your audio passing through it sound the same and sometimes even better. I would definitely recommend this mixer to home studio hobbyist.

Beautiful little Onyx

By Scott-ul6.d

from Appleton, WI

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

These preamps are no joke. They sound so sweet...such little noise when cranking the gain! It's exactly what I had been searching for. I highly recommend this to anyone.

Great for home studio

By Mike Y.

from Chicopee, MA

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

Bought this when there was a big sale. I tried the Alesis firewire, but I never got that to work. Traded it in for the Mackie and am very happy.I have the firewire card and that is a godsend for routing to my computer. I am having some issues with the firewire, however, but that may be my firewire card. That is the only thing I haven't changed out yet.The mixer has great line inputs and the routing of signals is fantastic, even without busses. This is the central hub of my home studio at this point.

Great sound improvement over 1202VLZ Pro

By Pgilland

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

When I upgraded from a 1202 VLZ PRO, I immediately noticed a dramatic sound improvement in these Onyz mic pre-amps, and the Perkins EQ. For the first time ever, I have felt comfortable actually using the Mackie EQs on my recordings, as the new EQ circuit sounds very well tuned and musical to my ears.

Excellent

By velveteen13

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

I've been using the Onyx with an Apple G-5 for a over a month and are Blown away with the ease of the system. Researched a new home recording setup for almost a year and this is much better than the stand alone digital recorder I've been using.

Onyx 1220

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

I have extensive use with mackie and soundcraft mixers and I have to say these Mackie Onyx pre-amps are very good. They have a very warm sound. It might not be the best in all situations, but for vocals they are amazing. Installation in XP was a breeze with the optional firwire and I was tracking in Sony Vegas about 15 minutes out of the box. The qaulity disapointed me a little because there are a few pots that are a little wobbly. Overall I would say it is a good addition for any studio.

Onyx kickin butt

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

I purchased the Onyx 1220 three weeks ago. It has been used non-stop in my home studio. Very solid construction and even "clearer' sound than my old VLZ. Still waiting for Firewire card and computer connection. Then this will be a home run.

Awwwwwwsome!

Comments about Mackie Onyx 1220 12-Channel Mixer:

finally a hybrid analog/digital mixer that can connect direct via firewire to your PC. I have no doubt this mixer will be an all time classic.
