Manufacturer's Description from Mackie

The 16-channel 1640i is the flagship mixer of the series featuring a full 16 mono mic/line channels each with 4-band dual sweep Perkins EQ, a whopping six aux sends each with pre/post and solo capability, 4 sub groups and a powerful master section. Despite its large channel count, the 1640i is compact, rack mountable and features our renowned flexible RotoPod™ design, allowing the mixer to be housed in any configuration – from custom studio furniture, live sound installs or even post production machine rooms. The 1640i’s full-featured 16x16 FireWire capability allows the user to route all channels, aux sends, sub groups and master L/R to their favorite DAW. However, the true power of the 1640i lies in its ability bring back the full 16 channels of FireWire output from your computer directly into the channel strips – for a true tape style mix down.

 

DEEP FIREWIRE INTEGRATION

The Onyx 1640i is the flagship mixer of the series, boasting a full 16x16 FireWire interface, allowing for something that a DAW could never do alone: A true tape-style mixdown.

If you are doing a real analog mixdown, you will surely benefit from the premium features that the 1640i provides. Send all channels simultaneously to your DAW, get them recorded and apply your plug-ins. Once you have everything edited and ready, you can simply route up to 16 streams straight back into the 1640i’s channel strips. You can choose to apply some of that lovely Perkins EQ if you wish. All of these signals hit our premium, high-headroom custom summing bus. It combines the best of both the digital and analog realm to create seamless workflow that makes your sessions faster, easier and better sounding than ever possible before.

Wet or Dry? — 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. 

Studio Quality Effects—All aux sends are routable to the computer, allowing you to utilize your computer as a powerful FX engine by implementing your favorite plug-ins in a live scenario. 

Preserve Your Mix — Master L/R is routable to the computer for recording your analog mix. Burn and sell CDs of the mix at the end of the gig!

Mix Integration — Up to 16 sources from your computer can be routed to either the control room for instant monitoring or right back into the channel strips for mix integration.

Latency-Free Overdubs — Having a “real” mixer has its benefits. 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.

 

PREMIUM ANALOG MIXER

When it comes to the high pressure environment of a recording session or live performance, you simply cannot beat the stability and reliability of an analog mixer. With features honed over 20 years of design by some of the legends in the industry, the Onyx-i Series mixers are simply the best sounding full-featured analog mixing boards available to the modern sound engineer. 

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. With all these proven, great-sounding analog features, it is easier than ever to create a memorable mix.

About Manufacturer

We have the technology. A good mixer is more than just a bunch of knobs and faders. When you think about it, it's the stuff underneath the cover behind the knobs and faders that makes or breaks a mixer. We've built our reputation by making affordable mixers loaded with highly useful features But those features wouldn't mean diddley if they weren't built on solid technology. And that's why we've assembled a bunch of text chunks that describe what goes into every Mackie mixer.
We hope you will read through the various chunks before you make a buying decision. Then buy a Mackie mixer so our Corporate Chihuahua can finance the creation of an original screenplay based on her exciting life. Coming soon to a theater near you.
