All the tools you need for great sound

Like the name says, the ProFX8v2 is a professional mixer, with convenient features and sound that rivals that of some larger format mixers. Mackie designed the Vita preamps with live sound in mind to provide the quality of sound that is lacking in some compact mixers. Each channel features its own individual 3-band EQ and 100Hz low-cut filter for shaping the sound of your inputs. The ReadyFX digital effects engine gives you access to 16 different effects including reverbs and delays - Mackie even added chorus effects for your guitar. A 7-band graphic EQ can be assigned either to your main outputs so you can fine tune the PA or the aux output to easily get rid of feedback in your monitors. If you perform with backing tracks there are inputs (including USB) for your laptop or MP3 player, a headphone output with individual level control, and when you add to all that phantom power for your condenser mics and the convenience of a hi-Z input for direct instrument input, you have no reason NOT to own a ProFX8v2.

Versatility you may not have considered

Yes, the ProFX8v2 is exactly what you need for mixing when the gig calls for minimal inputs, but that's not where its usefulness ends. Since you'll be mixing from the stage, keep the ProFX8v2 right next to you and you can use the headphone output with a set of in-ear monitors for your performance and just leave your floor monitors at home. Drummers can use it for monitoring too - take the aux mix from the front of house board that would have gone to your wedges and plug it in to a channel on the ProFX8v2. Once your mix is set you have complete control over sound shaping and volume without having to get the attention of the mix engineer. Keyboard players, you can use it to mix your multi-instrument rig straight into your amp onstage. Even audio-visual professionals working in conference breakout rooms and convention general sessions will find the functionality and connectivity of the ProFX8v2 an easy, great-sounding solution - when you're working in a room with a 70-volt system, the 7-band graphic EQ will come in especially handy!

Gear that stands the test of time

Ever walk into a venue to set up and been pointed to an old Mackie mixer in the corner, covered in years of smoke, dust, and bar goo? Are you surprised when you plug in, fire it up, and rock your gig? You shouldn't be! Mackie has been making solid, roadworthy gear for decades and the ProFX8v2 is no different. In fact, the gear just keeps getting better. Built like a tank? Indeed! With solid steel chassis construction and super-tough ABS side protection you'll be playing through your ProFX8v2 for years to come.

Record and stream via USB

With all the right tools for the job, the ProFX8v2 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 ProFX8v2 to a laptop, start up your included copy of Tracktion 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 ProFX8v2. 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!

Great gear and service!

I wasn't to sure about this mixer but decided to take a chance, Glad I did! Still had questions but Carle B very patiently ansered all my questions and detailed some of the features. Perfect for home studio.

My Mackie ProFX8

Got mine a few weeks ago. It is a great mixer and the only problem I seem to have is a static feedback off the mixer to the amps. But other than that I love it.

A Good Way To Go

I bought this unit to use with my light duty rig and it has been a good way to go. Unlike some Mackie offerings, it is straight ahead and easy to use. Just plug in, set your levels and go to work. It has the features needed for performing, but not a lot of extras that you don't really need taking up pages in the user manual. The on-board effects are adequate - not great, but they can be bypassed and the effects sent to an outboard unit if desired. The mic preamps are not as good as the Mackie Onyx preamps but the sound is still better than other units in this price range. A very user friendly and functional little mixer. Well worth considering.

Mackie ProFX8v2

Great little unit. High quality, enough routing options, very compact. My only complaint is that I can't adjust the preset effects to my liking, but I'll live with it.

Works great....when it's working :-(

I originally bought the ProFX8 (previous version) on 5/1/15. Used it for a handful of gigs in May and June. The mixer was treated with the utmost of care, always kept either in its original packaging or the ProFX8 specific bag. On 7/8/15 I'm setting up for another gig and suddenly the two hybrid channels (3/4, 5/6) are on the fritz. Channel 5/6 is nothing but white noise. Channel 3/4 is making noise as well and the gain knob is scratchy and intermittently goes completely silent - ALL THIS WITH NOTHING PLUGGED INTO THE MIXER!To Mackie's credit, they quickly send out a replacement unit and actually "upgrade" me to the ProFX8v2 (since the ProFX8 is now obsolete.) The "v2" is seemingly the same exact thing aside from different mic pre-amps and fancy colors. I unpack the brand new replacement and plug it into my speakers to test each channel. Channel 3/4 is having the same problem! Scratchy, inconsistent gain knob with noise akin to a helicopter in flight. Again - nothing plugged into the unit. A power source problem perhaps? Definitely not since all of the other channels functioned fine. This is definitely a quality problem on Mackie's side.Again, to Mackie's credit, they are sending me a replacement vs. having it serviced. But they've also warned me that this is the last replacement I'll receive. If I have the same problem again I will need to take it to a service center for repair. This time around I may just keep it factory sealed and sell it online.I made a fatal flaw and bought this from my local retailer instead of buying from Sweetwater. As a result I'm stuck. My local retailer doesn't care that the product they sold me stopped working 2 months after I bought it. They have a firm 15 day return policy, and I didn't buy their extended warranty. Had I bought this from Sweetwater I'm 100% certain that I'd already have a replacement product I'm satisfied with.Two lessons learned: 1) Always buy from Sweetwater. If you have an emergency and must buy from your local retailer, return the product the next day and then order it from Sweetwater.2) Don't buy the Mackie ProFX8v2.
