Designed to take the hassle out of mixing live performances, Mackie's CFX.mkII Series compact live sound mixers feature genuine Mackie mic preamps, four subgroups, precise nine-band stereo graphic equalizers for greater sonic control, and onboard EMAC™ 32-bit digital effects—eliminating the need for outboard effects processors and cables. Combined with Mackie Active loudspeakers, the CFX.mkII mixers are part of a complete, easy-to-use Mackie sound system.

What's new in CFX.mkII? New impact-resisting rubber side panels for better durability. New ergonomic updates including sturdier, more precise Onyx Series knobs. And new graphics, for better visibility in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. Best of all, the new CFX.mkII mixers come at a suggested retail price significantly lower than the original CFX Series.

The Features You Need to Get the Job Done
All CFX.mkII mic/line channels feature genuine Mackie mic preamps, renowned for their high-headroom, low-noise operation. Additional channel features include unbalanced inserts and input Trim controls with individual Zero Level LEDs, 3-band EQ with swept midrange, and 100Hz low cut filters for eliminating mic rumble. Each channel strip has a 60mm log-taper fader, one external, and one internal/external effects send; plus two Aux sends, pan, mute, solo (PFL), and bus assigns. The mixers also offer phase-accurate 9-band stereo graphic EQ for easy tonal shaping (and feedback supression). All three models allow two separate stage monitor mixes to be created with their own effects levels. See how its done here. (JPG or PDF)

Sweet touches abound on the CFX.mkII Series — like a simple, yet utterly handy Break Switch, that lets you mute all the channels, and instantly play any souce you've plugged into the Tape inputs. (Perfect for those moments when you have to take care of business offstage, and don't want some overzealous fan grabbing a mic to belt out "Free Bird.")

Not Just Any Old Effects Thanks to our massive digital R&D efforts of the past seven years, we've developed sophisticated 32-bit digital effects that rival dedicated outboard processors. Our EMAC effects sound clean and realistic — especially compared to the crude, jangling 16-bit effects on most of the other "effects" mixers on the market. Read more.

Tough Enough for Live
Like all Mackie mixers, the CFX.mkII Series is designed for rugged, day-in and day-out road use. Their sturdy-yet-light steel monocoque construction houses rugged, double-sided SMT-plated fiberglass circuit boards, and 60mm faders with ultra-tight lip seals for keeping out contaminants. Onyx mixer-style knobs are mounted so they "ride" just above the steel chassis and absorb impacts without transferring damage to the internal components. And like all Mackie mixers, the CFX.mkII feature co-molded potentiometers that don't get brittle and scratchy sounding with age.

I love this board. The mic preamps have better range when compared to behringer and peavey. The sound doesn't fade or distorted when the volume increases. It also comes with 16 Mic preamps when most boards in this class has 8-12. The subgroups could be directed to the main, aux AND 4 individual sub outs. I'm a sound tech that provided sound for 100's of concerts and I must say that singers and other sound techs are surprised when I show them the features on this board and tell them the price. I love this board and recommend it to everyone. You will not be disappointed.

Has been using for over a month. Clean sound. Has to route all channels through subgroups. Has the potential for use in larger setup/ live shows/ venues. Good build quality. Nice design and layout .

Great product. My bandmates absolutely love it. For a mixer so small it has lots and lots of headroom. Brightened up our entire front mix. Great...

Bought a mixing board listed as "good shape" no problems listed either. Later to find the main console ribbon is bad. Mediawerks dishonestly listed the mixer. It was to be used in church after renovation was completed. Board was never used until it was installed. It had been unpacked and checked for physical damage, but unfortunately we did not check the electrical components. Mediawerks was contacted, all they would say is not obligated due to being outside return policy. Then they state they have videos of the board working (not listed to see before purchase). After videos were requested, they send them in a way you have to make purchase of software via the net to view. Great job mediawerks would not expect anything less. Got taken for over $500.00 bucks. Only one star because they do not offer -'s or zeros. Rip-off's
