Onyx-i FireWire Recording Mixers are truly all-purpose, perfect for recording in the studio and in live sound situations.The familiarity of an analog mixer provides easy setup of EQ, headphone mixes, FX sends and more. But you also gain the power of a simple plug-and-play recording and FX routing to your favourite DAW.


All Onyx-i mixers are more DAW-friendly than any other interface, the Onyx 1640i offers the freedom to work with any DAW you might choose, including Pro Tools, M-Powered 8, Logic, SONAR, Cubase and more.

Deep FireWire Integration

The Onyx-i Series features deeper FireWire integration than any other mixer out there and offers immensely powerful routing capabilities. Every channel on the mixer can be routed pre or post EQ to the computer, allowing you to choose whether to implement 'EQ to tape' or not. All aux sends are routable to the computer, allowing you to utilise your computer as a powerful FX engine by implementing your favourite plug-ins in a live scenario. The 1640i's Master L/R is routable to the computer for recording your analog mix. Stereo return from the computer can be routed to either the control room for instant monitoring or to a stereo channel for mix integration. Latency-free overdubs are simple since you are using an analog mixer. No more wasted time dealing with the complicated "DSP" mixers commonly used on standalone interfaces.

The flexibility offered by the Onyx 1640i allows you to work faster and more intuitively than ever before.

Premium Analog Mixer

The 1640i has a plethora of analog features that are sure to please. Sixteen full-featured channels each feature Onyx mic preamps, with a reputation as some of the best boutique quality preamps available today. Every channel features 48V phantom power, a low-cut switch and dedicated 4-band, dual-sweep Perkins EQ, offering a highly musical Q filter without sacrificing the precise control the Mackie EQs are known for. Six aux sends provide pre/post control over additional dedicated mixes, including monitor mixes and effects loops. The 1640i features true 4-bus architecture, offering four subgroups that are perfect for managing your mix or for zone control of multiple PA setups. There are built-in DIs on the first two channels for direct connection of guitars or bass and a dedicated talkback section with a built-in mic that lets you easily communicate with band members while on stage or recording.

Other analog tools include six aux sends with pre/post fader assignment, allowing for monitor mixes, effects loops or additional headphone mixes. There are built-in DIs on the first two channels for direct connection of guitars or bass and a dedicated talkback section with a built-in mic.
