Mackie 1608

Wow, I've gotta say... First ordering the it in right a way.. In fact everything so far, from Sweetwater has been awesome, products, service, help...etc. as far as this product, the Mackie 1608, it's prob. One of the best mixers I've worked with at a great price, Very easy to use, and does the same work as any one of the high end, expensive digital mixers out there.I perform LIVE music seven days a week and having the 1608 has made a major deference!Thanks Sweetwater for your products and service!

Great mixer for the price

Has everything you need to produce a great sound at a third of the cost of the analog gear needed to match this mixer. The record function works great and it's really nice to be able to move around the venue and make adjustments

The Future has Arrived

Step up to the bar and place your order folks. You won't be sorry. No longer will you tote your brick mixer or use a snake. Set up and tear down is a snap at gigs. Sound is incredible - I replaced a very popular mixing board and this one sounds better. The true joy is mixing with the ipad. Our sound engineer can go ANYWHERE and mix us. Each musician who has their own monitor can mix their own monitor themself with their iphone or ipad. No more asking the soundman for more cowbell in your monitor. Our band absolutely LOVES this mixer. Everyone has been impressed - our friends, random people in the audience, club owner/managers. We have been grinning like little kids ever since we received it. The learning curve is not that difficult. We used it at a gig the day it arrived. If you play in a band and haul all sorts of PA gear and everyone wants more of "me" in the monitor, you owe everyone a favor and JUST DO IT!!!
