Mackie’s ProFXv2 Series Mixers Now Available

The series has been expanded with two new models, the 4-channel ProFX4v2 and the 30-channel ProFX30v2. To achieve what Mackie says is “unmatched sonic performance” the ProFXv2 series features the all-new Vita(TM) preamp, designed specifically for the highly-dynamic world of live sound. Vita preamps are virtually noiseless, even at high gain levels. The Vita design features a Class-A front end, dual feedback stabilization and bias current optimization for unmatched low-noise performance. This ensures that audio signals remain lively and brilliant at all times. Vocals are always clear and present and instruments retain every nuance of their character tone.

Also contributing ProFXv2’s excellent sonic performance is the all-new ReadyFX(TM) effects engine. This immensely powerful new engine employs floating-point DSP, designed for the intensive processing of high-quality audio signals. Each ProFXv2 mixer features a choice of 16 reverbs,
choruses and delays, each extremely useable for a wide array of sonic applications.

Mackie claims that ProFXv2 delivers a no-compromise live mixing toolkit that eliminates the need for expensive rackmount gear. It’s ideal for situations where purchasing extra gear is cost-prohibitive and the result is a simple setup that can easily be run by novices, but offers all the right tools for in-house engineers. Each ProFXv2 mixer features multi-band GEQ, critical for tuning mains to get the best possible sound in any venue. Onboard GEQs are also great for eliminating nasty feedback from stage monitors. Each model features a flexible mix of I/O and, with six models available, covering applications ranging from 4 to 30 inputs, there is always a ProFXv2 mixer right-sized for your application.

ProFXv2 mixers also feature built-in USB recording and playback*. Users can record the live mix for distribution to the audience, be it a band’s fan base or a
House-of-Worship congregation. It’s also perfect for music playback in any live sound situation. Just connect the ProFXv2 mixer to a Mac or PC and stream music directly to the house during performance breaks. It’s ideal for band rehearsal also, as musicians can capture their ideas and improve their live performances.

includes six models to cover a wide range of applications. The ProFX4v2 has a U.S. MSRP of $169.99. The ProFX8v2 has a U.S. MSRP of $299.99. The ProFX12v2 has a U.S. MSRP of $359.99.
