From Our Research Team:
PPM - Portable powered mixers from Mackie!Mackie continues to create live-sound solutions with the PPM Series powered mixers. These PPM mixers are surprisingly lightweight, but tremendously powerful with the PPM1008 sporting two individual power amps, with one 800-watt power amp handling the mains and one delivering 800 watts to the monitors. Mackie designed the PPM1008 with Class D amplifiers that produce maximum power with minimum heat. A built-in limiter protects your speakers from damaging peaks. All of these design elements merge to create a rugged and powerful mixer to make the PPM1008 the centerpiece of your live rig.
Mackie PPM1008 at a Glance:
The PPM1008 is loaded with premium Mackie preamplifiers to ensure transparent, low-noise/high-headroom characteristics right at the front of the mixer. The PPM1008 offers 8 mic/line channels with these trusted Mackie preamplifiers.True 48V phantom power allows every condenser mic to perform at its full potential, and the 3-band active EQ straight off the tremendously popular VLZ3 mixer series offers sweetening on every channel. Individual channel inserts (on channels 1-6) allow compressors and other outboard processing on critical instrument or voice channels. Dedicated in-line compressors on channels 1-4 bring simple but sweet dynamics to your mixes. Dual graphic EQs are provided for both mains and monitors. These EQs feature tight, constant-Q Filters that effect only the frequency range you've intended. A high-resolution 12-segment meters enable more visibility of your signal, and the super quick response of the meters allows what you see to translate quickly and easily to what you hear.
"Gig Ready" Effects
The RMFX+ (Running Man FX) 32-bit effects processor brings "gig ready" effects to your mixes. The RMFX+ processor features 24 solid FX that are known for their utility and usability. Small, medium, and large room reverbs with the choice of a warm or bright characteristic put your mix in the right space. Simple, rich choruses and an array of practical delays enable you to create professional mixes without requiring a two-hour sound check. Also, the RMFX+ is the first onboard processor to feature a user tap function. So if you want to use a delay, but the preset delay time doesn't work, you can tap it in instantly! Basically, Mackie has delivered a full rack of gear at your fingertips that is easy to master, allowing you to look and sound really good at your next gig.
The PPM1008 is fully armored inside a solid steel chassis, helping to protect the electronics from any potential environmental hazard. Extremely durable polycarbonate ABS end caps will protect the PPM1008 from years of abuse caused by tossing it in and out of the truck or falling off the stool at rehearsal. Each PPM1008 features a rounded front with recessed controls, so if it rolls on its face in the van or gets kicked over at the show, you can be sure that it will emerge damage-free. Two metal side handles allow you to easily pick it up and get going, but it's so ultra-light you won't need both hands!

The PPM1008 is latest generation of powered mixers from live sound giant Mackie!

Clean Clear Sound
by Walter Clark from JapanThis thing cranks!! Just plug it in and you can be set up and ready to go in minutes. Okay, so you can't pan tracks. I didn't buy it for that. I bought it for the raw power, the light weight, and ... read more [+]the Mackie design and durability and it doesn't disappoint in any of these areas. Its solid. Been spraining my back lugging equipment around for 30 years. Those days are over now! Sold all my rack-mounted amps, EQ's and effects to help pay for this baby and guess what?? I don't miss them at all. Feel like I just came out of the dark ages and into a whole new day. Pricey, but you get what you pay for. close [-]

On second thought...
by Walter Clark from JapanAfter using this thing for several months now, I have to agree that Mackie missed the mark with this one. The sound is really subpar. I'm running it through some great JBL speakers too, but the low ... read more [+]end is just not there. I've been fiddling with the EQ in every way possible but there's no way around it. Its got a very tinny sound to it. Maybe this is due to the pre-amps. The effects are nothing special either. I've got an old 800watt Behringer mixer that sounds way better than this one. Pass on it! close [-]

The Little Clipper
by Jerry Carpenter from Whittier, CAMackie cut a lot of weight out of this product. They also cut a lot of quality.
