Mackie ProFX8v2 Mixer Review

Mackie ProFX8v2 Mixer  PROS: Small enclosure, great preamps, good fx, low price. CONS: None. PRICE: $229 In music analogies the ProFX8v2 we’ve been testing out is like the Mark II lineup of Deep Purple. It took something you liked and made it something you loved. The footprint for the 8-channel model is small, which is […]Read More »

Harbinger L1202FX Mixer Review

Harbinger L1202FX Mixer – $109 PROS: Ridiculous price, no frills, easy to use. CONS: None. PRICE: $109 Less is more – it seems a lot of companies’ cram so many features into a product to fill any possible need that it over does it.

We tried reviewing it, and ultimately couldn’t. Not because there weren’t good things to say about it, but because there was far too much to try to jam into a […]Read More »

MACKIE 1604 VLZ4 Mixer Review

PROS: Well built, great sounding EQ, useful in several formats. CONS: Might be overkill for small bands. PRICE: $899 Not too long ago, the quality-to-price factor in compact mixers was pretty sad. When Mackie came on the scene, they were able to make a high quality mixer for a fair price, and the pro audio […]Read More »
