Mackie Onyx 32.4 Mixer
How do you improve upon a hugely successful mixer? With a heavy dose of R&D, that's how. Building on the success of the legendary SR32.4, Mackie is proud to introduce the Onyx 32.4 32-channel / 4-bus live sound console. Retaining the same convenient footprint as its predecessor, the state-of-the-art Onyx 32.4 brings dozens of upgraded features and enhancements to the party: 100mm Panasonic faders, premium Onyx mic preamps, completely redesigned analog circuitry with more headroom, greater routing flexibility, Perkins EQ, and a built-in assignable stereo compressor/limiter. And they're barely scratching the surface.
Better Sound by Design
The Mackie Onyx 32.4 sounds noticeably better than any comparably-priced 32-channel mixer on the market today. And with good reason. The difference starts with premium Onyx mic preamps on every channel which offer greater dynamic range and transparency versus any other mixer mic preamp on the market. The 4-band Perkins EQ offers the sweet, musical sound of the legendary British consoles of yesteryear, yet with greater filter control. And while the Mackie 32.4 is not the first mid-format console to offer an onboard compressor/limiter, they've specified a THAT(r) Corporation 4301 assignable stereo compressor/limiter, and then had it custom tailored specifically for the Onyx 4-bus Series. Finally, overall mixer sound quality and headroom has also been raised, thanks to the use of premium components, completely redesigned summing bus circuitry, and an electronically balanced design throughout the entire signal chain. Taken together, the Onyx 32.4 gives you big, full-range sound and even lower noise than esoteric mixing consoles costing much more.
