 in control of the mix. No matter
 what the situation is, you need the
 tools to get the job done perfectly
 each and every show. High-headroom

 32-bit effects processor brings “Gig
 Ready,” useable effects to your mixes. 
 Why scroll through hundreds of bizarre
 effects, like “ghost ambience?” Yeah,
 like anyone even knows what that
 means. Or how about winners like
 “delay+phaser2”, which you’ll never
 use in a million years. Those other
 mixers will leave your fingers raw 
 from all the scrolling you have to do.
 The RMFX™ processor features 16
 solid FX that are known for their
utility and usability.  Small, medium
 and large room reverbs with a mix of a warm and bright
 characteristics puts your mix in the right space. Simple,

check.Basically, we’ve delivered the choicest parts of a full
rack of gear, right at your fingertips, that is easy to master,
allowing you to look and sound really good at your next gig.
Really, really good.

Record and Stream via USB
USB SymbolWith all the right tools for the job, the ProFX8
allows you to create memorable mixes, but
even with all those features, portability is
paramount and you can’t be burdened with
lugging around additional equipment. No
worries,integrated USB I/O takes the pain out
of recording. Just connect the ProFX8 to a
laptop, start up your included copy of Tracktion
3 Music Production Software (or almost any DAW software
out there) and you can record the whole mix. You can even
stream music from your laptop during breaks. Once you get
home, record more tracks or use the ProFX8 to playback some
tunes during the next BBQ. Unless you’re a vegetarian…not
that there’s anything wrong with that.
The innovative “USB
Thru” switch allows for an impressive live/recording setup
when using performance software like Ableton Live or Reason.
When gigging, stream the output of your performance software
(or iTunes, for that matter) into the ProFX8. Combine that signal
with anything plugged into the mixer, and send the whole thing
back to the computer for recording. Archiving your integrated
live performances has never been easier!

Legendary Mackie Durability
Built Like a Tank Mackie is known for building mixers
 that are “Built-Like-A-Tank” and the
 ProFX8 is no exception. All of its tender
 bits are securely encased in a solid steel
 chassis. No only that, the impact-resistant
 side pieces are made of ultra-tough ABS,
 adding extra protection where it is most
likely to fall…not that you drop things.

PA Made Painless
Mackie Precision Passive and Mackie Active LogosSimple is better. A utility mixer like the
ProFX8 is an integral part of a ludicrously
simple Mackie PA system that sounds great.
The only choice is whether to go “active” or
“passive” with your loudspeaker setup.

Active— Just add Mackie SRSA,
SRM Series Active Loudspeakers or 
SWA Series Active Subwoofers

Passive — Add a Mackie FR or 
FRS Series Stereo Power Amplifier and S200 or
C Series Precision Passive Loudspeakers

The legendary quality of Mackie loudspeakers combined with the
utility of the ProFX8 is a lethal combination that will suit just about
any size venue. Just add enough speakers, and you’re golden.

Budget Friendly 
Piggy BankThe ProFX Series Compact Effects Mixers
strike the perfect balance. They offer all
the right tools to get the job done well,
sport the popular compact footprint that
Mackie is known for and are also the most
budget-friendly of all the Mackie sound
reinforcement mixers. Our competition
either doesn’t have the expansive feature
set of the ProFX Series, or they simply will
not survive the test of time. You are
investing in your mixer and the ProFX will be there for you at every
gig, ready
