2016 NAMM Show: Mackie has introduced the ProDX Series, an new line of compact digital mixers with complete wireless control.
The line features two models, the 4-channel ProDX4 and the 8-channel ProDX8.
- The ProDX4 features two Wide-Z preamps, plus TRS main outs and an aux send for sending audio to a monitor or separate zone.
- The ProDX8 extends the input count to 6 mic preamps and the addition of a second aux send. Both mixers also come with a 1/8? stereo aux input for connecting a media player and a headphone output for monitoring or silent practice.
The mixers couple the power of digital mixing and an ultra-compact form factor, designed for solo performers, small bands, venues and commercial applications that require lower channel counts.
Both mixers are equipped with Mackie’s Wide-Z mic preamps. These combo inputs allow connection of mic, line and instruments and require no gain adjustment for easy setup. And with their single knob hardware design, any user can make quick and easy level adjustments. Using the companion MixerConnect control app, users unlock processing and wireless control, plus the ability to wirelessly play back music or backing tracks from any Bluetooth capable device.
ProDX mixers provide complete wireless control over everything from EQ and FX to voicing and mix presets using the MixerConnect app available for iOS and Android devices. This allows the mixer to be stored safely and out of sight without losing any control. Performers can attach their phone to their mic stand for fast changes to their mix without interrupting the performance to run to the mixer. Both models feature an integrated control bridge, offering a convenient place to set a phone or tablet at just the right angle for keeping an eye on the mix.
