While being on stage is undoubtedly fun, nothing can match the musical breakthroughs that the laid-back atmosphere and freedom for experimentation the studio allows. This creative space is often the catalyst for all sorts of organic ideas that can grow into a band's greatest musical achievements, and Mackie recording gear can help you capture those moments in professional sound quality for your fans. The right combination of gear can take the stress out of recording, allowing you to do what you do best: create.
Mackie makes a wide variety of gear, so you're sure to find the missing piece or combination that's right for you. A great place to start is with a quality studio monitor, like the Mackie MR5 mk3 5" 2-Way Powered Studio Monitor. Featuring a 5.25" woofer to deliver a clear, uncolored midrange with two levels of bass boost and a 1" silk dome tweeter, the MR5 mk3 is ideal for mixing and monitoring. Meanwhile, the flexible inputs make connecting everything a breeze.
The complementary Mackie MR10Smk3 10" Powered Studio Subwoofer is a great way to add an extended bass dimension to your studio sound. This glass aramide composite woofer has an adjustable 40 Hz to 180 Hz crossover point and rubber feet to absorb vibrations. It allows your main speakers to focus on high and mid frequencies for an overall superior, balanced sound.
Top off the whole setup with a quality recording interface, and you'll be ready to capture professional-sounding audio. With its eight boutique-quality preamps and high-end AD/DA converters, the Mackie Onyx Blackbird Premium 16x16 FireWire Recording Interface is versatile enough for any recording application. Additionally, the included control DSP matrix mixer application is a graphic user interface that's intuitive, powerful, and fun to use.
Properly equipping your home studio can make recording a real joy and Mackie, being a world leader in professional audio equipment, specializes in user-friendly hardware and value. Mackie recording gear is a great investment for initial studio furnishing and, as your studio grows, you'll find your Mackie gear is flexible enough to remain not only relevant, but essential to your setup.
