Premium Analogue Circuitry: Whether you’re tracking your latest song idea or doing a live stream, the Onyx Series USB Interfaces deliver true studio-quality sound with maximum headroom and ultra-low noise. Utilizing our proven Onyx™ mic preamps, everything from vocals to guitars to synthesizers will be captured with incredible accuracy and warmth.
Zero Latency Direct Monitoring: Featuring a true analog monitoring path directly from the preamps to your studio monitors and headphones, you can track while listening in either mono or stereo to the direct analog source with zero routing. Not only that, it also means you can adjust your buffer settings to maximize your computer’s processing ability.
Bus Powered Connectivity: Onyx Series USB Interfaces feature USB 2.0 connectivity for fast data transfer and minimal latency. Also, being bus powered, your studio can be truly mobile – just plug into your laptop and you are ready to go, no external power required. Compatible with Mac (Core Audio) and PC (ASIO).
MIDI I/O: All that great MIDI gear shouldn’t go unused. The Onyx Producer 2•2 is equipped with MIDI I/O to keep you in touch with your favorite synths, controllers, sequencers, and more. Perfect for complex live performance and studio setups.
Built like a Tank: Since Mackie’s early mullet-filled days circa 1989, we insisted that everything we make be able to take the abuse of modern musicians, and Onyx Series USB Interfaces are no exception. With a beautiful all-metal enclosure, extended wear potentiometers, and robust internal construction, these interfaces are in it for the long haul.
