The Mackie ProFX12 is the perfect choice for smaller performing acts, solo performers or for small venues that don’t have the budget or space for a ton of outboard gear. The ProFX12 has everything needed to make your gig sound great and is really easy to operate. Plus, USB I/O lets you record the show or stream music straight from a laptop. The ‘Pro’ in ProFX stands for Pro. Professional tools, rugged build quality, small footprint...everything you need. The ProFX12 is loaded with six Mackie high-headroom, low-noise mic preamps, 3-band EQ, a built-in DI for direct connection of a guitar or bass, integrated ‘Gig-Ready’ effects, precision 7-band GEQ and more. The ProFX12 has all the right tools, each and every one designed to sound great. Plus, everything is housed in an ultra-tough enclosure with additional impact-resistant sidecheeks, protecting your investment from the rigours of the road.

In fact, someone from the band might have double-duty as ‘The Sound Guy’ for the group. If you are reading this, chances are that’s you. Let us pander to your obviously higher intellect... you are a professional and you need the tools to get the job done perfectly each and every show. High-headroom mic preamps with great-sounding effects, channel EQ, a built-in DI, plus precision GEQ to tune-up the room or monitor mix. Sounds good, right? The ProFX12 comes with all these features—it is truly the perfect live sound toolbox. ‘Gig-Ready’ RMFX™ Effects The all-new RMFX™ (Running Man FX) 32-bit effects processor brings ‘Gig Ready’, useable effects to your mixes. Why scroll through hundreds of bizarre effects, like ‘ghost ambience’? Yeah, like anyone even knows what that means. Or how about winners like ‘delay+phaser2’, which you’ll never use in a million years. Those other mixers will leave your fingers raw from all the scrolling you have to do. 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 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 really good at your next gig. Really, really good. Record and Stream via USB With all the right tools for the job, the ProFX12 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 ProFX12 to a laptop, start up your included copy of Tracktion 3 Music Production Software (or almost any DAW software out there) and you can record the whole mix. You can even stream music from your laptop during breaks. Once you get home, record more tracks or use the ProFX12 to playback some tunes during your next party. Not only that, 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 ProFX12. 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! Legendary Mackie Durability Mackie is known for building mixers that are ‘Built-Like-A-Tank’, and the ProFX12 is no exception. All of its tender bits are securely encased in a solid steel chassis. No only that, the impact-resistant sidecheeks are made of ultra-tough ABS, adding extra protection where it is most likely to fall...not that you drop things. PA Made Painless Simple is better. A utility mixer like the ProFX12 is an integral part of a ludicrously simple Mackie PA system that sounds great. The only choice is whether to go ‘active’ or ‘passive’ with your loudspeaker setup. The legendary quality of Mackie loudspeakers combined with the utility of the ProFX12 is a lethal combination that will suit just about any size venue. Just add enough speakers, and you’re golden. Budget Friendly The ProFX Series Compact Effects Mixers strike the perfect balance. They offer all the right tools to get the job done well, sport the popular compact footprint that Mackie is known for, and are also the most budget-friendly of all the Mackie sound reinforcement mixers. Our competition either doesn’t have the expansive feature set of the ProFX Series, or they simply will not survive the test of time. You are investing in your mixer and the ProFX will be there for you at every gig, ready to roll.

The StudioLive™ 24.4.2 and 16.4.2 changed the game, offering amazing performance and ease of use for a great price. Now Presonus have packed the same audio quality, performance, seamlessly integrated software (including remote control) into a smaller, even more affordable package, the Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2. Presonus StudioLive 16.0.2 Features * 8 mono mic/line channel inputs * 4 stereo line channel inputs * 4 Auxiliary buses (pre/post-fader send) * 2 Internal FX buses * 2 stereo 32-bit digital effects processors with customisable reverb and delay presets * Fat Channel signal processing on all channels and buses * One 31-band stereo graphic EQ (on main outputs only) * 16-in/16-out FireWire recording interface (24-bit/44.1 kHz and 48 kHz) * Scene store and recall * Software bundle for Mac® and Windows® * Lockout mode protects your settings from meddlers and accidents * MIDI Control Mode provides control over various functions Small size. Bigger possibilities In a 'footprint' of less than 2 square feet (0.19 m2), the compact, 16-channel StudioLive 16.0.2 offers 8 mono input channels and 4 stereo channels and provides 12 XMAX™ Class A solid-state mic preamps. But don't let its size fool you, the 16.0.2 is jam-packed with features and processing power, employs the same workflow and easy-to-use mixing-surface design as the bigger StudioLive boards and sounds every bit as good, with the same high-definition, wide-dynamic-range, digital converters. More than a mixer: an integrated system The 16.0.2 integrates a 16x16 FireWire interface and comes with Capture™, Studio One Artist™ recording and production software and Virtual StudioLive, bidirectional control software. It also works flawlessly with Presonus' free SL Remote iPad and iPhone control apps. 130 quality signal processors at your fingertips The 16.0.2's Fat Channel is well stocked with compressors, limiters, gates, phase reverse, high-pass filters, and 3-band semi-parametric EQ. Two stereo, 32-bit floating-point effects processors deliver delay and reverb effects. MIDI control from a footpedal A glance at the rear panel reveals that the 16.0.2 offers something the two bigger boards don't: MIDI In and Out. You can recall Scenes from a DAW using MIDI Program Changes, control the main output volume and effects level and even mute effects between songs—all thanks to the magic of MIDI control. What was then is now: complete store and recall Two factors work against getting that Perfect Mix with an analog mixer. First, the Perfect Mix can be hard to reproduce a week, day, or hour after you perfect it. And second, a good mix should be dynamic: levels, effects, and EQ should be tailored to each song or segment of the show, service, or presentation. StudioLive solves this problem by letting you save all of your digital settings for quick setup and recall. Minimum Computer system requirements Windows * Windows 7, Vista, XP (32-bit and 64-bit) * Intel Pentium 4 1.6 GHz processor or AMD Athlon 64 (Turion) (2.5 GHz or faster recommended) * 1 GB RAM (2 GB or more recommended) Macintosh * Mac OS X 10.5.2 or later (32-bit and 64-bit) * PowerPC G4 1.25 GHz or Intel Core Solo 1.5 GHz processor (2 GHz or faster recommended) * 1 GB RAM (2 GB or more recommended) Windows and Macintosh Systems * IEEE 1394 FireWire 400 Port * Internet connection recommended * DVD-ROM drive * Internal or external 7200 RPM storage drive highly recommended
