Product Description

The Mackie 808S Powered Mixer is designed to run all night into brutally-low impedances and sound clean even when driven hard.
Mackie started with a massive toroid transformer and two unusually large storage capacitors with 720 joules of energy storage capacity. In fact, the PPM power supply is so robust that it can run on as little as 80 volts at the end of a long, skinny extension cord during a brown-out. Then Mackie added their Fast Recovery circuitry that reduces latching distortion so PPM Series mixers sound good even when driven well into clipping.

Mackie 808S Features

  • Full featured 8-channel 1200 watt stereo powered mixer
  • Onboard EMAC 32-bit digital stereo effects processor
  • Two 600-watt FR Series High-Current power amps
  • Power amps switchable as stereo Mains or Mains + Monitor
  • 8 mic/line channels with master phantom power
  • Two stereo line inputs (on channels 7 and 8)
  • 1/4 inch and XLR connectors on each input
  • 1/4 inch Inserts on channels 1-6
  • Two Aux Sends (MON and EFX)
  • Ingenious Break Switch
  • Active 3-band EQ on each channel
  • 9-band, audiophile-quality graphic EQ on Main and Monitor outputs
High-Powered Stereo Gigging Machine The point of a powered mixer is power, right? That's why there are real FR Series High-Current amplifiers inside every Mackie PPM Series mixer. They crank out real wattage at any impedance, sound good even when pushed into clipping, and are legendary for their reliability.

We also built in the industry's first 32-bit digital EMAC effects contained in a powered mixer. Developed specifically for PPM mixers, our EMAC is equivalent to many outboard effects processors, and offers 16 user-controllable, stunning effects. And since graphic equalizers are always in a powered mixer's output path, we insanely over-engineered ours with expensive, discrete components, eliminating the phase distortion that plagues our competitors.

Immaculate Mixing
Above all else, the PPM Series mixers sound great. Often copied, but seldom duplicated, our high-headroom, low-noise mic preamps are legendary the world over for their superior sound quality. That's why we use them in the PPM Series, clean, quiet, superb. Each preamp channel has its own input Trim control, which provides up to 40dB microphone gain, 20dB line-level gain, or a full 20dB of attenuation to pad those really hot signals. Channels also feature level-set LEDs for easy visual input gain adjustment; just speak, sing, or yell into the mic and adjust the Trim control until the little green LED blinks. Time to dial in a little channel EQ...

  • 16 different effects
  • 2 controllable parameter per effects
  • EFX WIDE effects enhancement system
  • BREAK SWITCH mutes channels 1-6 during breaks
  • Rugged injection-molded case with die-cast heat sink
  • Input gain control with level-set LED
  • Audiophile-quality graphic equalizers

  • Mackie Quality Throughout
    The PPM 808S has everything you'll need for the gig. Each of the six stereo channel strips feature XLR mic and 1/4 inch TRS line inputs, TRS insert jacks, monitor and effects send, 3-band EQ, and an input Trim control with individual level-set LEDs. And you won't need external effects, thanks to our EMAC 32-bit precision digital effects processor which sounds great and is as easy to use as a stompbox. There's even an Effects to Monitor control, so you can give your stage monitors a wet mix, totally independent of the Mains. The output section boasts two of our 600-watt FR (Fast Recovery) power amps, dual 9-band graphic equalizers, 75Hz rumble reduction filters, a switchable soft-knee compressor, and output level metering.

    Active 3-Band Equalization
    Speaking of fuzzy-box manufacturers, we never limit your equalization options to bass and treble. All of the PPM Series mixers feature our world-famous 3-band EQs on each channel, with usable center frequencies as follows: 12kHz shelving high-frequency EQ (±15dB), 2.5kHz peaking mid-frequency EQ (±12dB), and 80Hz shelving low-frequency EQ (±15dB).

    Loaded with Extra Features
    The PPM's onboard phantom power supply means you can use high-quality condenser microphones, as well as your favorite dynamic mics. Outputs include a 1/4 inch TRS mixer line output, a 1/4 inch TRS monitor line output, and left and right RCA tape/line outputs. And because we know you don't want to give up an entire channel for a CD player, we've provided RCA Tape In jacks, with a dedicated level control, for your favorite external playback device (tape, CD, iPod, etc.).

    Possibly the most important feature on the PPM Series mixers is its ingenious Break switch, which mutes channels 1-6, but allows whatever is connected to the Tape inputs to be heard. You'll be grateful we included this switch when some rock-star wannabe jumps on stage during the break, and starts singing Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

    Onboard Digital Effects
    The pièce de résistance of our PPM Series is its onboard EMAC 32-bit digital effects processor, which offers a plethora of dynamic digital effects. You can select any one of 16 custom-designed algorithms ranging from small room reverb to "out-of-this-world" phase shifting—and they're all controllable and easy to operate. Both the Monitor Master and Main Master rotary controls have corresponding EFX controls, so you can mix your effects into the monitors as well as the main outputs.

    Built Road Rugged
    All PPM mixers boast a rugged composite-molded case, which scoffs at the kind of abuse that would send those cheap rat-fur-covered wooden boxes crying for mama. We've been building state-of-the-art mixers and power amplifiers since day one. So it was just a matter of time, you might even say it was inevitable, that we'd combine the two.

    Now you can have it all, Mackie mixer, Mackie digital effects and Mackie power amps, all in one convenient package; the PPM Series.
