    At NAMM 2020, Mackie will be showcasing the complete redesign of their analog mixer series, ProFXv3 with USB. Now with Mackie’s Onyx™ mic preamps, GigFX™ Effects Engine, 2x4 24-Bit / 192kHz USB recording, and a new design. Targeted at live sound in clubs, bars, and venues and also used for home studios, content creators, and live streaming. Now included with the purchase of any ProFXv3 model is Pro Tools® | First, plus the exclusive Mackie Musician Collection™ featuring 23 Avid® plug-ins valued at over $400 USD retail. The ProFXv3 Series is available in the 6-Channel ProFX6v3, 10-Channel ProFX10v3, 12-Channel ProFX12v3, 16-Channel ProFX16v3, 22-Channel ProFX22v3, and 30-Channel ProFX30v3.

    ProFXv3 Series mixers start with Mackie’s flagship Onyx mic preamps. “Our Onyx mic preamps offer boutique-quality performance and sound quality,” said Matt Herrin, Mackie Product Manager. “Bringing them to ProFX for the first time is a major upgrade to the series that makes that sought-after sound more accessible than ever.”

    ProFXv3 offers the all-new GigFX High-Resolution Effects Engine, with 24 great-sounding effects including reverbs, delays, and more.

    The built-in USB interface in ProFX mixers is a popular feature in the series, and ProFXv3 offers a professional upgrade in recording quality, with sample rates up to 192kHz. The 2x4 I/O is good for creating two mixes on your computer and sending each to the mixer. A dedicated Blend knob allows you to choose between monitoring your DAW output and direct latency-free monitoring or a blend of both, for recording alongside pre-recorded tracks.

    ProFXv3 Series mixers are equipped with useful tools such as single-knob compression makes it easy and fast to keep levels in check. Instruments can be connected directly with Hi-Z switches. And you can now plug in any device via an 1/8” input directly into a channel strip.

    “With legendary Onyx preamps, 192kHz recording, onboard compressors, tons of new effects, and powerful included software, ProFXv3 is the ultimate affordable analog mixer,” remarks Herrin. “We can’t wait to see what artists, audio engineers, content creators, and all other Mackie users do with these.”
