    Product Description

    The Mackie 32x8 is one serious Mixer. From is very well thought-out 4 band EQ on each channel, individual channel mute, and channel subgroup routing, the 8-bus series are designed with the profession musician in mind.

    A totally new fader design was commissioned by Mackie to ensure truly accurate taper for the best attenuation available, just like larger, more expensive consoles.

    Extensive metering, 8-busses, a talkback mic, versatile effects routing, phantom power, bulletproof construction and even direct outputs on each channel are featured. The 8-bus line is a super affordable group of full-functioning boards for live or studio work.

    The 8-Bus series was designed to eliminate the last barrier between you and audio creativity -- the 32-8, 24-8 are capable of sound quality equal to or better than that of $100,000 consoles. 8-Bus consoles have recorded more platinum albums and major motion picture soundtracks than any other mixer in their class -- they set the standard for affordable 8-bus consoles.

    Excellent for project studios and digital multitrack recording, when combined with digital multitrack or hard disk recording systems, a Mackie 8-Bus console can create not just major label CDs, but major motion picture soundtracks and network quality commercials.

    Features include low-noise/high-headroom mic preamps on every channel, as well as channel inserts and direct outs. In the channel strip you'll find Mackie's truly musical EQ -- with Hi and Lo shelving EQ, parametric Hi-Mid, and sweepable Low-Mid EQ -- as well as our Low Cut Filter, which allows you to eliminate mic thumps and room rumble from your mix, and use your EQ for music and vocals.

    With Mix B, "in-line monitoring" is a breeze. Six aux sends and six aux returns allow you to use all the effects you want. And the 8-Bus's complete talkback and phones level controls make communicating with the talent a snap. There's much more:

    When you get right down to it, the 8-Bus series of recording consoles is a value at many times the price. The fact that artists and producers of every shape and size have sworn by them means when you buy an 8-Bus you'll be in good company.
