The inputs run through Onyx microphone preamps one of the best mic pre’s on the market is built into this board! From there, it is equipped with Perkins E.

Not only do you have your typical E. This knob controls the center frequency for the E. Think of it as a frequency selector. Once the desired frequency is found, you can then adjust the volume of said frequency in the usual way. It is equipped with Aux sends and returns that can be used for bussing premixes or effects to or from or through whatever-wherever. Analog tape ouputs, main line outs, main XLR outs, control room line outs, and an optional Firewire card. The Firewire card turns this kick ass analog mixer into a bad ass digital interface.

What else could you need? It has no frills to get in the way and is extremely straight forward. With so many output options it is also extremely versatile. The manual is straight to the point and provides diagrams of suggested set ups for most common uses. I’ve used it in studio for the most part. When used in a live setting, however, it is just as simple.

Adjust levels and E. No hissing or “electronic hum” from the unit. The Mic pre is constantly satisfying. With any preamp you sort of have to find it’s sweet spot. Once learned, it can easily be reproduced for every occasion.

Mackie – Onyx – Owner’s Manual

The sweet spot on this one is pretty much everywhere. Dial it up to unity, adjust as needed, but it only takes a couple seconds to mackis the perfect gain. If I am working in my studio, this is undoubtedly being used.

Best mixer I’ve ever owned.

I’d highly recommend it to anybody who needs a board for any purpose. This is an older model, however, and I’m sure that the newer Mackie Onyx mixers have upheld the same incredible standard. Try one of those out first. If you can’t find one of those within your budget that will suffice for your project, go old skool and find one of these. That means unless you can buy the mixer and the card togetherfinding a place to get the Firewire card for this model will be difficult.


Did you find this review helpful? Specs can be found on the Mackie site but basically it’s a 16 channel mixer with 4 aux sends, firewire, and full eq on each channel. Nothing super out of the ordinary. It features the onyx mic pres. I really like that the eq is british style. You don’t get that with some mixers but I think it’s a good feature that more mixers should have.

There aren’t any surprises here.

Mackie makes good stuff and they put all their best tech into everything. They’ve been around for a while and they know how to do it. The mic pres sound really good. I didn’t have ANY problems with install. It took to my studio and never let up.

Mackie Onyx-1620 Manuals

The manual like all mackie manuals is the best I’ve ever read. Mackie doesn’t mess around with any mumbo jumbo technical stuff that you don’t need. They get right to the point when explaining the finer details of the mixer. If it’s worth knowing, they put it in the manual. It’s not too short, and not overly long with a handful of needless info. This is primarily why I buy a lot of mackie stuff. They know their product and how us “joe’s” see it.

Mackie Onyx Channel Mixer

The 2 best features in my opinion are the onyx pres and the eq sections. The pres are the best I’ve heard on a mixer. I don’t know what mackie does to make them sound great but it works. I also thing this is my favorite EQ strip on a mixer.

I had a mackie 8 channel years ago and I remember liking the EQ on that one too. Through my daw everything sounds nice. It does what it’s supposed to and does it well. Mackie doesn’t pile on a bunch of half baked macki that you won’t ever really use. They make a solid bare bones product that’s built to work for years. If you want a good studio 16620 for your daw, this is my pick. Hasn’t given me any trouble and sounds great. Don’t get something with a bunch of effects and bloated features you won’t use.

This does the job fine. No 16 line inputs, 8 Mic, so the first two are also instruments entered. I usually use a buffer between and it depends on the project, which gives me a latency of 2 ms input and 3 output.

For very large projects obviously when no more records are do not needto I happily increases the buffer up to or more, manuql to relieve the CPU and ASIO. The manual clear and sufficient?


Haha I have rarely seen a manual such as Mackie, who are full of humor, anecdotes and other. Tested in Logic Pro on a Macbook Prono need for drivers, the card is automatically recognized, it is stable, no worries.

Extremely rare crashes under Windows passage 4 crashes in 6 years Onys For transparency I think not to be an expert at this level it, but I know it taints anything in sound, it does not take special colors. No breath report since I and yet I bought the model expo! Equalizer works perfectly, although once connected by Firewire, faders and equalizers do not serve anything.

Paid so in his DAW. I love the fact that you can activate the phantom power on a particular track, maunal an entire group. I love his side digital sound card can FireWire, which works great with extremely low latency the PC must 11620 as of course. Compact console to look neat: The mono eq slices are good for a console that price, I would say that for Presice it’s effectively while respecting the source, eq stereo tracks them his worst mwckie can correct but harder to embellish the sound.

I done with the dub so I ruthlessly manipulates the fader and mute.

Them to the preamp eq does not always crack c it is a very good point. XLR-output kidding when you put the mic position that c is not great at all, and c is that it does not happen before fall. A track-fader is slightly squeaky pan works mackid when you put a left and a track has a mute slight creaking, I saw little understanding of the abuse in j am aware XD.

Heat a slightly better definition slightly better routing group, with more. I remake that choice. Full Specifications on the website of mackie and AF Only thing to add, from the rack, or you Buy Mack brackets are not given, or you Planer your rack to not obscure the SEND jack and inserts, but nothing that’s really good!

Otherwise everything you need for a table at this level. I put the 8 in relation to that format makcie the rack pasque Onyx is top! The usual functions are they easily accessible? The manual is clear and sufficient? An example for many manufacturers of audio because no translation, and all essential information.

You can saturate the console has enormous mackid without losing quality preamps or eq c always the same good, fo having done your levels before She introduced the breath?
