Mackie, in conjunction with its exclusive Chinese distributor, Lee Sheng, announces the worldwide launch of the new ProFX16 and ProFX22 mixers at PALM China. With increased channel count and dedicated inline compression, both new models are targeted for mid-sized venues and bands looking for a live sound solution.
The new 16-channel ProFX16 and 22-channel ProFX22 offer features that are designed to eliminate the need for additional rackmount gear. On the front end, Mackie's low-noise, high-headroom preamps work with LED metering and 60mm faders on each channel to keep levels in check. Every channel also features 3-band EQ.
All ProFX mixers offer an integrated 32-bit RMFX effects processor with 16 “gig-ready” FX and a 7-band graphic EQ for simple tuning of mains or monitors. A built-in USB interface allows users to record a show and stream back music for breaks or integration into the mix.
These ProFX mixers also come with rugged, solid steel chassis with protective ABS sidecheeks for resisting impact. The new ProFX16 and ProFX22 increase the number of mic pre's needed for larger applications and also feature dedicated inline compression for simple, one-knob compression of critical vocals and instruments.
