PLASA 2010: Mackie release Onyx Blackjack USB recording interface

Great deals on musical instruments

Mackie is releasing a host of new products at PLASA 2010 including the Onyx Blackjack premium 2x2 USB recording interface.

Let's face it. If you could fit one of our flagship Onyx 1640i consoles into your workspace and budget, you probably would do it.

But that shouldn't mean you have to settle for the cheapest, plastic 2x2 interface available.

We've spent serious time and research creating the Onyx Blackjack Premium USB Recording Interface.

It delivers the same proven Onyx preamps as our other flagship Onyx products in an ultra-compact, ergonomic desktop design perfect for your home studio.

Other professional features include high-end AD/DA converters, built-in DIs, phantom power and true analog hardware monitoring of inputs for hassle-free zero-latency tracking, in either mono or stereo.

The USB connection provides bus-power to the Blackjack, eliminating the need for another cable run. Plus, it's Mac/PC friendly and ready for most major DAWs right out of the box.

So, don't settle. Be smart and check out the Onyx Blackjack - the utmost in sonic quality and simplicity.
