Deep Firewire Integration
The Onyx-820i features deeper FireWire integration than any other mixer out there and offers immensely powerful routing capabilities:
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 utilise your computer as a powerful FX engine by implementing your favourite plug-ins in a live scenario.
Preserve Your Mix — Master L/R is routable to the computer for recording your analogue mix. Burn and sell CDs of the mix at the end of the gig!
Mix Integration — Stereo return from the computer can be routed to either the control room for instant monitoring or to a stereo channel for mix integration.
Latency-Free Overdubs — Having a 'real' mixer has its benefits. Latency-free overdubs are simple since you are using an analogue mixer. No more wasted time dealing with the complicated 'DSP' mixers commonly used on standalone interfaces.
The flexibility offered by the 820i allows you to work faster and more intuitively than ever before. Imagine a world where your recording sessions run smoothly, every single time. Dream of a live sound mix that is both archived for history and simultaneously recorded multi-track for later mixing. No need to dream, the 820i is here.
Premium Analogue 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 analogue 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 analogue mixing boards available to the modern sound engineer.
The 820i has a plethora of analogue features that are sure to please. First off, there are three Onyx mic preamps which have been proven as some of the best boutique quality preamps available today. Then there's the Perkins EQ, which offers a highly musical Q filter without sacrificing the precise control that Mackie EQs are known for. Two mono mic/line channels feature 3-band Perkins EQ with a sweepable mid, the stereo line channels have 3-band EQ and (talk about flexibility) a unique hybrid channel features 4-band Perkins EQ. So, regardless of the type of signal you need to input, there is sure to be a channel with the right EQ for the application. Other analogue tools include two aux sends with pre/post fader assignment, allowing for monitor mixes, effects loops or additional headphone mixes. 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 analogue features, it is easier than ever to create a memorable mix.
