At Musikmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, Mackie announced the launch of ProFXv2 Series Professional Effects Mixers, which will be available beginning in May 2015. The redesigned ProFXv2 series features the new Vita preamp design and ReadyFX effects engine for live sound applications. The series has been expanded with two new models: the 4-channel ProFX4v2 and the 30-channel ProFX30v2.
There are now six models available, ranging from 4 to 30 inputs: ProFX4v2 ($169.99 MSRP), ProFX8v2 ($299.99 MSRP), ProFX12v2 ($359.99 MSRP), ProFX16v2 ($629.99 MSRP), ProFX22v2 ($809.99 MSRP) and ProFX30v2 ($1,149.99 MSRP).
Mackie states that its Vita preamps are "virtually noiseless, even at high gain levels." The Vita design features a Class-A front end, dual feedback stabilization and bias current optimization for low-noise performance.
The new ReadyFX effects engine employs floating-point DSP, with added horsepower and all-new algorithms. Each ProFXv2 mixer features a choice of 16 reverbs, choruses and delays.
Each ProFXv2 mixer features multi-band GEQ and a mix of I/O options. The ProFX8v2, ProFX12v2, ProFX16v2, ProFX22v2 and ProFX30v2 mixers also feature built-in USB recording and playback. The ProFX16v2, ProFX22v2 and ProFX30v2 models each feature 4-bus architecture for additional mix management and dedicated inline channel compression on select channels.
