Mackie ProFX8 at a Glance:
Compact but feature-rich
The ProFX8 offers a complete feature set, perfect for solo performers, small performing acts, or any small venue that needs it all, without the hefty price tag. There's even USB I/O for recording the set. The "Pro" in ProFX stands for Pro. The ProFX8 is fully stocked, featuring four Mackie high-headroom, low-noise mic preamps, 3-band EQ, a built-in DI for direct connection of a guitar or bass, integrated effects, precision 7-band graphic EQ and more. All of these great features are housed in a rugged enclosure, in Mackie "Built-Like-A-Tank" tradition. The ProFX8 has the right set of tools to make your gig sound better and run smoother.
Live Sound Toolbox
Your job is to make things sound good. Maybe you're a solo performer playing covers at a Vegas hotel bar. Perhaps you have the honor of being the "engineer" of your band and not only do you play bass, you're also in control of the mix. No matter what the situation is, you need the tools to get the job done right each and every show. High-headroom mic preamps with great-sounding effects, channel EQ, a built-in DI, plus precision graphic EQ to tune-up the room or monitor mix. The ProFX8 comes with all these features - it is truly the perfect live sound toolbox.
The RMFX (Running Man FX) 32-bit effects processor brings "Gig Ready," useable effects to your mixes. The RMFX processor features 16 solid FX that are known for their utility and usability. Small, medium and large room reverbs with a mix of a warm and bright characteristics puts 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. Basically, we've delivered the choicest parts of a full rack of gear, right at your fingertips, that is easy to master, allowing you to look and sound good at your next gig.
Record and stream via USB
With all the right tools for the job, the ProFX8 allows you to create memorable mixes, but even with all those features, portability is paramount and you can't be burdened with lugging around additional equipment. No worries, integrated USB I/O takes the pain out of recording. Just connect the ProFX8 to a laptop, start up your included copy of Tracktion 3 Music Production Software (or almost any DAW software) and you can record the whole mix. You can even stream music from your laptop during breaks.
The innovative "USB Thru" switch allows for an impressive live/recording setup when using performance software like Ableton Live or Reason. When gigging, stream the output of your performance software (or iTunes, for that matter) into the ProFX8. Combine that signal with anything plugged into the mixer, and send the whole thing back to the computer for recording. Archiving your integrated live performances has never been easier!

Very low noise and very smooth sounding, crystal clear sounding.
My AKG C 535 condenser mic sounds amazing through this mixer.
The good thing is that it is smaller and lighter then the previuos DFX 6.
What I like about this mixer is for the price you get great features,
a stereo 7 band graphic EQ
added on in this price range, which I think is a real plus if you are playing live ..
A real winner form Mackie close [-]

Music Background: Voice Over Artist
I plugged a Tele and a dynamic mic into the Mackie ProFX8 and - thanks to this mixer's hi-Z input and built-in digital effects - I was able to get a cool mix of my vocals and guitar without the need for a DI box and external processors. I can see how the thoughtful design of this mixer would make it perfect for small bands or solo acts. If I had the guts to do a solo singer/guitar act, I would take this board with me because it was made to take care of my needs. With the ProFX8, you get a reliable mixer - and a creative toolkit too!
