    I'm looking at getting an audio mixing board and want to spend no more than $200. At first I was going to get a Behringer 1204x with USB. However reading reviews and fourm entries I decided against it. Currently, I see the Mackie Pro-FX8 mixer. It offers all the features and more than the...

    Hey all. The d8b/Mac g5 at the studio glitched out on me the other night during a session by freezing up and making a continuous stuttering sound. I know they are old, but the board seems to freak out a few times a year, by not starting up correctly (fader 16 moves slightly and quickly from...

    Troubleshoot Mackie 32x8 Master Section

    We removed the Master section of Mackie 32x8 board for cleaning. There are two 7 pin (Power?) connectors that are interchangable and I managed to reverse them.
