Mackie Onyx-i Series : FireWire Recording Mixers

Mackie Onyx-i Series : FireWire Recording Mixers

As promised, Mackie officially announced the new line of mixer on 09/09/09. They are ONYXi series, the analog mixer with built-in firewire audio interface which support upto 24bit/96kHz. By the way, that was not what the world was waiting to here from Mackie. The point is “what about Pro Tools compatibility”. Mackie clearly stated about this in their website.

Onyx-i FireWire mixers can be used with all major DAWs, and is qualified by Mackie for use with Pro Tools® M­-Powered 8*, offering those users a host of new hardware options.

I know that Pro Tools M-Powered 8 compatibility might not be that interesting since you have to buy the software separately, unlike the Pro Tools LE which is bundled with every Digidesign interface. But Mackie revealed the option, this is a beginning of hardware alternative for Pro Tools.

Anyway, according to what is written on Mackie website, we’ve to keep on waiting for a few more week to see the driver and full detail of how to use Mackie ONYXi with Pro Tools M-Powered 8.

Onyx-i Series Mixers are qualified by Mackie for use with Pro Tools® M-Powered 8. Mackie will release a driver (via www.mackie.com) together with full details of how to use the Onyx-i Series with Pro Tools® M-Powered 8 in the coming weeks.

more detail :

PS. seem like the word qualified by Mackie will be the crucial key for any legal issue coming afterward. There is no response from Avid/Digidesign so far about this announcement. Stay tuned 🙂
