The digital side of the Onyx 1620i is equally robust. Mackie has tested and certified the Onyx 1620i for use with all major DAW software. It allows you to send channels, aux sends, or master L/R signals discretely to your Mac or PC for recording. The Onyx 1620i also routes a stereo return from your DAW to a control room or to a channel for further mixing. You'll be impressed by how smoothly the Onyx 1620i integrates with your favorite software!

This mixer feeds all my needs 16 ins as i have a lot of outboard synths, and i can run them all in ALL 16 CHANNELS AT ONCE SWEET!!!!!!. Also i can send two back in to monitor what my computer hears.
So far fantastic plug and play on my mac pro. No drivers just hook it up and play.
Worth more than i paid for it i believe and a great saving from these guys, and dont forget the free candy:)
Clean lines and designed for a musician not an engineer. Simple manual i didnt even open to hook up. Manual maybe 20 pages thats all you need.
My first Mackie product now i see what all the fuss is about.
Thanks guys now i can make music not swap cables and try to find routing signals and the tactile feel of a quality mixer.
A+++ MAckie close [-]
