Well, I am getting to the point where I am fed up with this mixer's USB. Oddly enough, I am NOT talking about the 'whine' experienced by other users. I have heard that as well, but keeping the USB knob below 50% eliminated most of it. My problem is the total failure of the USB connection. My PRO FX12 has failed to connect on a couple of occasions, but my (newer) PRO FX8 has failed completely. E-mails to the company have been useless. I sent them detailed description of my setup, including the fact that I had connected the mixer to another computer with the same result. Their recommendation: Try connecting it to another computer. Really guys? My solution for now is to use a Behringer U-Control UCA222 from the mixer to the computer. The only mixer I have with a reliable USB connection is a Alesis MultiMix 4 that cost me about forty bucks. I really want to use the Mackie for DJ work, but I can't rely on it.
I mostly use it for mixing:
Keyboard Casio LK-215
Yamaha DTXplorer 5-piece Electronic Drum Kit
Yamaha YDD40 Portable Digital Electronic Drums Premium Pack
and MP3 player for rehearse with my kids at home.
few days ago I recorded my performance (I'm a beginner drummer) with tracktion 3 software, and found a little noise on the usb input track. it is the only noise I found so far. The rest of the channels sounds great.
In short, the USB connectivity was essential. I found the board to be very noisy when connected to my computer via USB and by the looks of reviews here I am not alone. I called Mackie and they instructed me to change a setting in the Windows 7 Control Panel, which only made a nominal difference. A BIG THUMBS DOWN on this unit if you need to connect it to your computer. I cannot speak to it if you are using it in a more traditional scenario.
One good thing, I have had a very good experience with my return. I purchased from GearTree via Amazon and the GT people were fantastic. This was not their issue, it was Mackie's and I would be glad to do business with the GT people again, they were the only bright spot in this fiasco.
Note, I purchased an AKAI EIE PRO to replace this unit and after updating the drivers and firmware from the AKAI website, everything was rock solid...and guess what...no noise! This proves it was the Mackie unit not my system or setup...again, a BIG thumbs down on the ProFX8!
