Soundcraft MFXi 8 at a Glance:
High-quality mic pres
When designing the MFXi 8, Soundcraft brought excellent components to a truly appealing price. It features the the GB30 mic preamp that Graham Blyth designed expressly for the company's 30th anniversary — the GB30's the same highly transparent mic pre used on Soundcraft's larger LX7ii and GB series consoles.
Must-have routing and I/O
When choosing a mixer, the amount of routing possibilities and I/O configurations are essential deciding factors and the MFXi 8 asserts an impressive outfit for its price. it includes two configurable aux sends, two groups, XLR and 1/4" metal jack connector sockets, RCA phono stereo playback inputs and record outputs, 3-band EQ on the two stereo inputs, TRS insert sockets, inserts on all mono outputs, ten-segment LED output metering, and a convenient headphone input. Inside, vertically mounted circuit boards and nutted pots give you premium performance and reliability. This mixer also includes a Kensington lock to keep it secure.
Premium Lexicon effects section
The MFXi 8's set of 24-bit digital effects sets it apart from many mixers in its class. You get two stereo channels and an effects send on each channel — and a whopping 32 effects to choose from. The MFXi 8 uses the same AudioDNA processor featured in many of the Digitech and Lexicon outboard equipment including the highly respected Lexicon MX400. Enjoy reverb, chorus and delay — complete with tap tempo — for a sound that's unmistakably Lexicon.

A step above all the others in this class.
by Chris from Sacramento, CAI need to begin by saying thank you to Richard Whittington, my rep at Sweetwater, for all his help and patience in helping me decide on a new small format mixer. I have been pestering him the past fe... read more [+]w months and after going over all the options I ultimately decided on the MFXi 8. He got me a great deal on it and was able to get it to me in time for an important event I had coming up.

When I first opened the box I was blown away by the build quality and look of the unit. It was definitely an improvement from the Mackie unit I had been using in the past. I used the unit the day after I received it and all i can say was AWESOME. I had worked in the venue before and always had issues with feedback. I was able to get through the event with 0 issues and very little tweaking. The difference in headroom and sound quality was also noticeable. I used multiple inputs, aux outs and mains and they all performed flawlessly.
This is really a great mixer to buy. Yes it is a bit more than similar units from Mackie, A&H, etc. but the price is well worth it for the quality.

When I heard the first sounds from the Soundcraft MFXi 8 I was blown away. The Lexicon effects are the icing on the cake. There is a karaoke setting in the presets that is fantastic. When I first listened to the karaoke setting at my house I was not too impressed. I used it at the bar where we do karaoke and again I was blown away. This mixer along with two QSC K12's and a KW181 sub make a great combination for both karaoke or DJ work. I would recommend this to anyone. close [-]

Excellent small board

The Lexicon effects are like the icing on a cake.
Check out the MFX i range of the Soundcraft website and you can hear the effects for yourself., you see what I mean, beautiful sounding effects with plenty to choose from. My favourite is setting number 2 Large hall reverb.
This is perfect for solo gigs , I am a singer/guitarist.

This made my job as a performer really enjoyable.
I defantly reccomend this mixer. close [-]
