PLASA 2010: Mackie release Onyx Blackbird FireWire recording interface

Great deals on musical instruments

Mackie is releasing a host of new products at PLASA 2010 including the Onyx Blackbird premium FireWire recording interface..

Studios, regardless of size, can't usually afford to buy all the gear they want at once.

That's why investing in gear designed with performance, flexibility and expandability in mind is critical.

Mackie's Onyx Blackbird Premium 16x16 FireWire Recording Interface delivers industry-leading recording quality via eight boutique-quality Onyx preamps and high-end 24-bit/96kHz conversion in a sleek, rackmount design.

Two front panel 'Super Channels' provide quick access to crucial recording tools and feature true analog hardware monitoring, in both mono and stereo, for hassle-free zero-latency recording.

The additional mic inputs, onboard 8x8 ADAT and word clock I/O provide easy integration into any digital or analog setup.

For more complex sessions, the powerful Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer allows for quick mix creation and routing of any input to any output.

Plus, since Blackbird works as a standalone 8-channel preamp rack, you've got a single box solution ready for integration into your studio or digital live setup.
