The Mackie ONYX 24.4 24-channel / 4-bus live sound console. All-new analog circuitry and the latest technologies for live sound reinforcement in a durable, road-worthy package.
The Mackie ONYX 24.4 mixing console replaces the legendary SR244 VLZ PRO mixer. The new version maintains the same physical size, channel count and features of the original, while adding a variety of new and improved features. The Onyx 4Bus consoles are equipped with Mackie's premium precision-engineered, studio-grade Onyx mic preamps. Mackie is renowned for the high-quality mic preamps used in their mixers, and the Onyx mic pre’s are better than ever, with specifications rivaling expensive stand-alone boutique mic preamplifiers. Each mono channel strip features an individual phantom power switch, low-cut filter, mic input pad, pre-EQ channel insert, and an all new four-band EQ design with sweepable mids and EQ bypass switch. All mono channels have six Aux sends, Pan, Mute, PFL Solo, 100 mm Fader, Group and Main Mix assign, and four signal-level indicators. In addition, balanced direct outputs are provided on DB-25 connectors (eight channels per connector) for multitrack recording. The master section features two Stereo Returns, six Master Aux sends, four Group Masters, a 6x2 Matrix, a Phones/Monitor section, and a Talkback section with routing switches that allow you to communicate through the Aux Sends and the L/R mix. A new feature with the Onyx ONYX 24.4 mixer is an analog stereo compressor/limiter that can be inserted at the output of the L/R main mix, or the Group 1/2 or 3/4 outputs. Designed with a practical and easy to understand layout, anyone from a Sunday morning volunteer operator to a seasoned professional engineer can quickly learn to operate the Onyx 24.4 console. This makes it perfect for a wide range of live applications including churches, small- to medium-sized clubs, touring bands, and rehearsal facilities, just to name a few. With stunning sound quality and renowned Mackie engineering—combined in a full-featured, portable, highly affordable, mid-format mixing console—the Onyx 24.4 is destined to set the new standard.
