New Mackie® VLZ3 4-Bus Mixers Offer Proven VLZ Technology with Higher Channel Count
Woodinville, WA - June 15, 2010 - Due to popular demand, Mackie is extending the free download of the driver that connects its popular Onyx-i FireWire Production Mixers with Pro Tools M-Powered 8. The Mackie Universal Driver Upgrade (which enables Pro Tools M-Powered 8 functionality) is a simple download from the Mackie website (usually costing $49.99).
Mackie has extended this offer and, for a very limited time, this driver will be absolutely FREE. People who purchase Onyx-i mixers can go to www.mackie.com, register their new mixer and download the Mackie Universal Driver Upgrade completely free of charge.
Onyx-i Series mixers feature extremely deep FireWire integration and a host of proven, high-quality analog features like Onyx mic preamps and Perkins EQ. Users can choose to implement the Perkins EQ into the recording path at the push of a button, and can also choose to record auxes, groups (1640i) and the master L/R signal. The flagship Onyx 1640i incorporates a massively flexible 16x16 FireWire interface, allowing the user to return up to 16 DAW channels right back into the channel strips for a true tape-style mixdown.
