Mackie certainly knows their way around a mixer, but that doesn’t stop them from continually upping their game, as evidenced by the ProFXv2 series of live sound mixers. Featuring 10 of Mackie’s latest virtually noiseless Vita preamps, designed for the wide and often unpredictable dynamics of live sound, the 4-bus ProFX16v2 is outfitted with the extremely powerful, floating-point DSP-based ReadyFX effects engine, packed with 16 live-sound enhancing presets. The ProFX16v2 also features a sound-reinforcement toolkit that includes a graphic equalizer for “ringing out the room,” flexible I/O, and a 2×2 USB interface make recording gigs or playing music on breaks easy. And of course, all of the ProFX16v2’s goodies come housed in Mackie’s famed bulletproof steel chassis for years of reliable performance when the show must go on—with stellar sound quality. Mackie ProFXv2 mixers put the “live” in live sound mixing.

Vita Preamps

Specifically designed for live sound and virtually noiseless, Vita preamps feature a discrete, Class-A front-end design, dual feedback stabilization, and bias current optimization for low-noise performance in the realm of Johnson noise (the self-noise of the components themselves).

ReadyFX Engine

The ProFX16v2 features all-new ReadyFX effects engine employs floating-point DSP, which offers high-precision and wide dynamic range. The 16 effects found in the ProFX16v2 are specifically created for critically accurate processing of high-quality audio. The precision of floating-point processing results in rich, inspiring and performance-enhancing effects. To smooth out lead and backing vocals, the ProFX16v2 also features single-knob compression on channels 5-8.

Live-mixing toolkit

Each ProFXv2 model is outfitted with a features live-sound engineers rely on for audience-inspiring shows, such as multi-band graphic equalization, and smart features, including channel inserts and foot-switchable FX mute—ProFXv2 has the tools you need.

USB recording and playback

For easy recording of your mix, or for music playback during breaks, the ProFX16v2 features a 2×2 16-bit/44.1/48kHz USB 1.1 audio interface. Plus, Mackie’s easy-to-use Tracktion recording software is included, so you can get started right away.
