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 PPM608 sporting two individual power amps, with one 500-watt power amp handling the mains and one delivering 500 watts to the monitors. Mackie designed the PPM608 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 PPM608 the centerpiece of your live rig.
Mackie PPM608 at a Glance:
The PPM608 is loaded with premium Mackie preamplifiers to ensure transparent, low-noise/high-headroom characteristics right at the front of the mixer. The PPM608 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 PPM608 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 PPM608 from years of abuse caused by tossing it in and out of the truck or falling off the stool at rehearsal. Each PPM608 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!

by Jim Burgard from United StatesI ordered one of these late last year to use playing out at local bars and restaurants. I play in a duo, and we needed approximately 5 inputs between mics and instruments. A good friend of mine has ... read more [+]had the older model 608s for years and it is rock solid, so I thought I'd try the PPM608. Unfortunately I found out, while playing live and on the spot, that this mixer's built-in limiter was WAY TOO SENSITIVE for my needs. Any time I got on the mic or sang lyrics with a "P" sound in it this unit would cut the mains out, and believe me, I was coming nowhere CLOSE to pushing the limits of it's 1000W. Sweetwater was great and sent me another PPM608 right away, but it was actually even WORSE than the first one. I ended up boxing both of them back up and sending them in and getting a Samson TXM20 instead. Best decision ever - it is an excellent, clean sounding, solid, well laid out board. Although very disappointed in Mackie, the manner in which Sweetwater handled this guarantees that I will be a long term customer - they were great! close [-]
