Expandable, the definitive 8•bus console that's used by more artists, groups, composers, and production facilities than any other brand.

The 8•Bus series was designed to eliminate the last barrier between you and audio creativity – the 32•8, 24•8 are capable of sound quality equal to or better than that of $100,000 consoles.
8•Bus consoles have recorded more platinum albums and major motion picture soundtracks than any other mixer in their class – they set the standard for affordable 8-bus consoles.

Excellent for project studios and digital multitrack recording, when combined with digital multitrack or hard disk recording systems, a Mackie 8•Bus console can create not just major label CDs, but major motion picture soundtracks and network quality commercials.

Features include low-noise/high-headroom mic preamps on every channel, as well as channel inserts and direct outs. In the channel strip you'll find Mackie's truly musical EQ – with Hi and Lo shelving EQ, parametric Hi-Mid, and sweepable Low-Mid EQ – as well as our Low Cut Filter, which allows you to eliminate mic thumps and room rumble from your mix, and use your EQ for music and vocals.

With Mix B, "in-line monitoring" is a breeze. Six aux sends and six aux returns allow you to use all the effects you want. And the 8•Bus'scomplete talkback and phones level controls make communicating with the talent a snap. There's much more:

When you get right down to it, the8•Bus series of recording consoles is a value at many times the price. The fact that artists and producers of every shape and size have sworn by them means when you buy an 8•Bus you'll be in good company.

"The Mews is a very small studio owned by some friends of ours. Its main advantage is that it has a Mackie desk, which I was keen to use for pre-production and recording," Howlett explains. "The Prodigy sound owes a lot to Mackie because I've been using their stuff for years. The first mixer I ever bought was a Mackie CR1604, which I got when I was a teenager, and I've now got a 32:8 analogue eight-buss console that I love because it gives us our distinctive Prodigy sound. It's a desk that lends itself to being driven very hard. It has a naturally warm sound that allows you to push the channels as far as they'll go. Part of the appeal of The Mews was that it had a 32:8, so I immediately felt at home."

Is this mixer worth it for 200 eur today in 2017?  I would be using it with all analog synths and samplers
