    Product Description

    Mackie’s Onyx Blackbird Premium 16x16 FireWire Recording Interface delivers industry-leading recording quality via eight boutique-quality Onyx preamps and high-end 24-bit/96kHz conversion in a sleek rackmount design. True analog hardware monitoring, in both mono and stereo, provide simple zero-latency recording, while onboard word clock and 8x8 ADAT I/O allow for ultimate expandability. Two front panel Super Channels provide quick access to crucial recording tools and the powerful Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer allows for quick mix creation and routing of any input to any output. Plus, since it works as a standalone 8-channel preamp rack, Blackbird offers a single box solution ready for integration into your studio or digital live setup.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Great interface. I bought mine used for cheap, it has Onyx preamps, very clean and clear with my Neumann TLM-67. The Focusrite ISA One I use is great, but seemed to colored with the 67. The Cirrus DA/AD converters are excellent, check the specs! Very satisfied with the sound quality. Nice build quality and I love the onscreen mixer/router, super easy and effective. The only thing I don't like is I believe its not true ADAT expandable, only SMUX and with another Blackbird, so I've read , but I'll have to see if I can get it to work with my Behringer ADA-8200. Don't hesitate to get one if you need clean preamps , great conversion, and a firewire interface.
