Shown for the first time at the NAMM show in Anaheim, Calif., last January, Mackie's new Onyx 24.4 (pictured) and 32.4 live sound mixers are now shipping. The Onyx 4-Bus Series mid-format consoles incorporate a host of new features such as a full complement of Mackie's flagship Onyx preamps, a fully balanced signal chain for lower noise and wider frequency range, and Mackie's Cal Perkin–designed 4-band EQ circuitry.

Both Onyx 4-Bus consoles also feature a 6x2 matrix, 100mm Panasonic faders and a fully assignable stereo compressor/limiter section built on the high-quality THAT 4301 chip. This compressor/limiter features independent threshold, ratio and fast/slow attack controls, and can be assigned to the main output mix, groups 1 and 2, or groups 3 and 4.

The Mackie Onyx 24.4 and Onyx 32.4 have a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $1,849.99 and $2,599.99, respectively.
