The Mackie ProFX12v2 12-channel USB mixer means you can stop sacrificing sound quality for portability at your smaller band and solo acoustic gigs. You get six of Mackie's Vita preamps for your mic, guitar, keyboard, or anything else you need for your show. After you've plugged in, tap into the powerful ReadyFX effects engine to add excitement to your mix. Show your audience you care by giving them the best sound you can with the Mackie ProFX12v2 USB mixer. Like the name says, the ProFX12v2 is a professional mixer, with convenient features and sound that rival some larger format mixers. Mackie designed the Vita preamps with live sound in mind to provide the quality of sound that is lacking in some compact mixers. Each channel features its own individual 3-band EQ and 100Hz low-cut filter for shaping the sound of your inputs. The ReadyFX digital effects engine gives you access to 16 different effects including reverbs and delays - Mackie even added chorus effects for your guitar. A 7-band graphic EQ can be assigned either to your main outputs so you can fine tune the PA, or to the aux output to easily get rid of feedback in your monitors. If you perform with backing tracks, there are inputs (including USB) for your laptop or MP3 player, a headphone output with individual level control, and even phantom power for your condenser mics. With the added convenience of a hi-Z input for direct instrument input, you have no reason NOT to own a ProFX12v2. The ProFX12v2 is exactly what you need for mixing when the gig calls for minimal inputs, but that's not where its usefulness ends. Since you'll be mixing from the stage, keep the ProFX12v2 right next to you, and you can use the headphone output with a set of in-ear monitors for your performance and just leave your floor monitors at home. Drummers can use it for monitoring, too - take the aux mix from the front of house board that would have gone to your wedges and plug it in to a channel on the ProFX12v2.

That's completely understandable for a board that costs less than $200 which includes a USB sound card. I'm used to paying $500+ for a USB sound card ALONE, and this one includes an 8 channel Mackie mixer?!? They simply had to have cut some corners somewhere. So with all the complaints, I initially bought a different brand, but that one seemed to have a technical issue (or maybe a design flaw). In any case, I returned in and at the last minute came back to Amazon for the Mackie PROFX8V2.
First thing I noted: It was plug and play on all 3 machines I tried it on. (Windows 7 and Windows 10). I didn't need any drivers at all, unlike the first board I tried. That's a big plus.
But the big question was that USB noise. All those reviews that complained about it never gave it in a quantifiable amount: There is noise. But how MUCH noise? I was about to find out.
Connecting it to a laptop, I fired up Adobe Audition. I quickly had audio in and out. I set levels, then I turned all the pots to zero, which should leave me with dead silence. The headphone jack gets pretty loud on this board, and at full volume I could easily hear the noise they were complaining about. But the input meters on Adobe Audition showed a level of about -63 dB. That's the noise floor. I'd expect much better in a $500 sound card. But -63 dB is something I can work with.
To put it in perspective, the noise floor requirement for FM broadcasters imposed years ago by the FCC is -60 dB. This board beat that requirement by 3 dB. I have professional broadcast studios that aren't quite that good. So I sent the board out on the trip to NYC and didn't worry about it.
The broadcast lasted 3 days. The group came back and raved about the board. "It's a FANTASTIC board!". Not one word about any noise. I'm very happy with this!
The effects leave something to be desired.
The 3 preset delay speeds are too fast are pretty much useless and there is no way to custom set the speed or choose a number of repeats. Still it is worth the small price tag. Yay go portable!
I use this to sub mix my drums, vocal, and send it to the main PA mixer. Here's how I do it and why this mixer works well for me:
My vocal is in channel 1, and I take a tap off the insert jack (1st click doesn't interfere with the signal flow through the mixer channel, just a send) to send to the "My vocal" channel over there. The drums, are Kick snare tom 1 tom 2 and tom 3 in that order in channels 2-6. I use the MONITOR mix to send to the main PA. I can do this because the monitor mix is POST-EQ, AND I can return FX to the monitor send. I also use the nine band eq to notch just a little bit of 250hz out of the low end, with the EQ set to MONITOR.
Read that again if you need to.
I get a monitor mix FROM the main PA with everything I want to hear MINUS my vocal, and my drums, and return it to the stereo return. THUS, I can control my vocal mic into my headphone mix via the channel one slider, independent of the other vocals, guitar, piano, etc. I can put any drums I want, into my headphones, all with the easy-to-manipulate big sliders across the bottom.
Read that again if you want.
This mixer provides all the signal path-work I need to sub mix myself, hear my vocal, adjust my monitor mix separately, send a quality drum sound to the mains, hear the effects in my monitor, everything I need.
The only oddity I've found is that the headphone amp is independent from the MAIN output slider. I don't use the main output, so I have to use the headphone volume knob for my overall volume to my ears. Works fine, I just assumed I would have the big slider to use. Not a problem. Also, the built in effects are NON-adjustable, which I knew going in. Not to big a problem either, I pick two or three settings, and adjust the send. If I ever get tired of this, and want an adjustable effect unit, I have the inputs to do this.
In retrospect, I COULD reverse the situation, use the Monitor for my headphone mix, use the mains to send the sub mix to the PA, but I'm a fat-fingered oaf when I'm playing drums with one hand, adjusting a volume with the other. Big sliders make it easy to do.
All in all, it's a great little mixer with enough inputs, outputs to fit my needs. Recommended! Good value.
