Top Customer Reviews
The channels bleed into each other also. Not for the studio. In my opinion, best for a small live gig were the noise in the channel won't make a big effect. A lot like there older models with a face lift.
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!
Personally, I'd say, save your money and just go up in quality. I'm going to move up to a Presonus StudioLive 32 once the funds allow. This thing will go on Craiglist cheap to some lucky newbie who will most likely love it!
