I'm new to the forum, but have already learned a lot this week as I've been reading. I'm preparing to start a PC-based Recoring studio that will be used to record many multi-track groups (Church choirs, Church worship bands, Small Church Orchestras, etc.). I have been looking for reviews on the Mackie Onyx 1640 and have only found a couple through the Mackie website. I would like to know if anyone has any experience with this new product and what your thoughts are on it. The only negative is that it's only a front end mixer, but everything else looks pretty great. Thoughts?
