PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT

Round out your 808S with this Mackie product:


C300z

12" Two-way Passive Loudspeaker


     

High-Powered Stereo Gigging Machine.

The point of a powered mixer is power, right? That's why there are real FR Series High-Current amplifiers inside every Mackie PPM® Series mixer. They crank out real wattage at any impedance, sound good even when pushed into clipping, and are legendary for their reliability.

We also built in the industry's first 32-bit digital EMAC™ effects contained in a powered mixer. Developed specifically for PPM mixers, our EMAC is equivalent to many outboard effects processors, and offers 16 user-controllable, stunning effects. And since graphic equalizers are always in a powered mixer's output path, we insanely over-engineered ours with expensive, discrete components, eliminating the phase distortion that plagues our competitors.

IMMACULATE MIXING
Above all else, the PPM Series mixers sound great. Often copied, but seldom duplicated, our high-headroom, low-noise mic preamps are legendary the world over for their superior sound quality. That's why we use them in the PPM Series—clean, quiet, superb. Each preamp channel has its own input Trim control, which provides up to 40dB microphone gain, 20dB line-level gain, or a full 20dB of attenuation to "pad" those really hot signals. Channels also feature level-set LEDs for easy visual input gain adjustment—just speak, sing, or yell into the mic and adjust the Trim control until the little green LED blinks. Time to dial in a little channel EQ...

MACKIE QUALITY THROUGHOUT
The PPM 808S has everything you'll need for the gig. Each of the six stereo channel strips feature XLR mic and 1/4" TRS line inputs, TRS insert jacks, monitor and effects send, 3-band EQ, and an input Trim control with individual level-set LEDs. And you won't need external effects, thanks to our EMAC 32-bit precision digital effects processor—which sounds great and is as easy to use as a stompbox. There's even an Effects to Monitor control, so you can give your stage monitors a "wet" mix, totally independent of the Mains. The output section boasts two of our 600-watt FR (Fast Recovery) power amps, dual 9-band graphic equalizers, 75Hz rumble reduction filters, a switchable soft-knee compressor, and output level metering.

ACTIVE 3-BAND EQUALIZATION
Speaking of "fuzzy-box" manufacturers, we never limit your equalization options to bass and treble. All of the PPM® Series mixers feature our world-famous 3-band EQs on each channel, with usable center frequencies as follows: 12kHz shelving high-frequency EQ (±15dB), 2.5kHz peaking mid-frequency EQ (±12dB), and 80Hz shelving low-frequency EQ (±15dB).

LOADED WITH EXRA FEATURES...
The PPM's onboard phantom power supply means you can use high-quality condenser microphones, as well as your favorite dynamic mics. Outputs include a 1/4" TRS mixer line output, a 1/4" TRS monitor line output, and left and right RCA tape/line outputs. And because we know you don't want to give up an entire channel for a CD player, we've provided RCA Tape In jacks, with a dedicated level control, for your favorite external playback device (tape, CD, iPod, etc.).

Possibly the most important feature on the PPM Series mixers is its ingenious Break switch, which mutes channels 1-6, but allows whatever is connected to the Tape inputs to be heard. You'll be grateful we included this switch when some rock-star wannabe jumps on stage during the break, and starts singing "Paradise by the Dashboard Light."

ONBOARD 32-BIT DIGITAL EFFECTS
The pièce de résistance of our PPM Series is its onboard EMAC™ 32-bit digital effects processor, which offers a plethora of dynamic digital effects. You can select any one of 16 custom-designed algorithms ranging from small room reverb to "out-of-this-world" phase shifting—and they're all controllable and easy to operate. Both the Monitor Master and Main Master rotary controls have corresponding EFX controls, so you can mix your effects into the monitors as well as the main outputs.

BUILT ROAD-RUGGED
All PPM mixers boast a rugged composite-molded case, which scoffs at the kind of abuse that would send those cheap "rat-fur-covered" wooden boxes crying for mama. We've been building state-of-the-art mixers and power amplifiers since day one. So it was just a matter of time, you might even say it was inevitable, that we'd combine the two.

Now you can have it all, Mackie mixer, Mackie digital effects and Mackie power amps, all in one convenient package—the PPM Series.
