The Mackie Mix8 is a simple 8 channel analog mixer for live and in the studio. Connect a microphone to one of 2 mono channels with 48V phantom power. With the 48V phantom power you supply a condenser microphone with power. This makes high quality sound recordings. You connect instruments such as a synthesizer or guitar with the Mix8. You do this via a 6.3 mm jack cable. Do you want to use an external effect or audio processor? Connect the effect or the audio processor to the send / return channels. This makes it possible to use a reverb, delay or compressor.
