On the master output, there is a 7-band graphic EQ, which is switchable for tuning monitors or mains. Also, you get an aux output for a monitor mix. Also, this Mackie pro mixer comes up with a 3-band EQ on all 3 input channels.

Connections and controls

The Mackie ProFX mixer is certainly easy to use, and its controls are very simple and accurate. It has 8 fader channels which control the 12 inputs of this pro audio mixer. All the channel strips are equipped with a dedicated fader, a mute button, a pan dial, auxiliary monitor and FX dials. The 3-band EQ (80 Hz, 2.5 kHz, 12 kHz) ranges for the low-shelf, mid-range and high-shelf.  Its first 6 stripes feature individual microphone units, and the first strip also has a switchable line/Hi-Z ¼ balanced/unbalanced jack input, and ¼ jack insert input.

Effects

You get 16 very useful effects, that you can easily select and switch between by a simple scrolling dial. This feature is very convenient because you can make the selection even simpler, as you have a numbered list showing each effect next to a simple display with a number of the current effect. Of course, this is a really good way to structure the effects and make them even more usable. You can choose from the Bright room effect, the Warm lounge, Small stage, Warm theatre, Concert hall, Chorus and many more.

USB connectivity

Although you can use this Mackie pro mixer as a stand-alone mixer, you can also use its USB connectivity feature if you want an expanded functionality.

Like this, you can record all your performances or simply use this feature during a break to not let the audience waiting and soundless.
