Mackie 808S 8 Channel Powered Mixer (B Stock)
Mackie's PPM Series Mixers crank out real wattage at any impedance, sound good even when pushed into clipping, and are legendary for their reliability. Mackie also built in the industry's first 32-bit digital EMAC™ effects contained in a powered mixer. Developed specifically for PPM mixers, the EMAC is equivalent to many outboard effects processors, and offers 16 user-controllable, stunning effects. And since graphic equalizers are always in a powered mixer's output path, Mackie over-engineered theirs with expensive, discrete components, eliminating the phase distortion that plagues other units.
• Full featured 8-channel 1200 watt stereo powered mixer with onboard EMAC™ 32-bit digital stereo effects processor
• Two 600-watt FR Series High-Current power amps
• Power amps switchable as stereo Mains or Mains + Monitor
• 8 mic/line channels with master phantom power
• Two stereo line inputs (on channels 7 and 8)
• 1/4" and XLR connectors on each input
• 1/4" Inserts on channels 1-6
• Two Aux Sends (MON and EFX)
• Ingenious "Break" Switch
• Active 3-band EQ on each channel
• 9-band, audiophile-quality graphic EQ on Main and Monitor outputs
Above all else, the PPM Series mixers sound great. Often copied, but seldom duplicated, the high-headroom, low-noise mic preamps are legendary the world over for their superior sound quality. That's why Mackie uses them in the PPM Series—clean, quiet, superb. Each preamp channel has its own input Trim control, which provides up to 40dB microphone gain, 20dB line-level gain, or a full 20dB of attenuation to "pad" those really hot signals. Channels also feature level-set LEDs for easy visual input gain adjustment—just speak, sing, or yell into the mic and adjust the Trim control until the little green LED blinks.
MACKIE QUALITY THROUGHOUT
The PPM 808S has everything you'll need for the gig. Each of the six stereo channel strips feature XLR mic and 1/4" TRS line inputs, TRS insert jacks, monitor and effects send, 3-band EQ, and an input Trim control with individual level-set LEDs. And you won't need external effects, thanks to the EMAC 32-bit precision digital effects processor—which sounds great and is as easy to use as a stompbox. There's even an Effects to Monitor control, so you can give your stage monitors a "wet" mix, totally independent of the Mains. The output section boasts two of Mackie's 600-watt FR (Fast Recovery) power amps, dual 9-band graphic equalizers, 75Hz rumble reduction filters, a switchable soft-knee compressor, and output level metering.
ACTIVE 3-BAND EQUALIZATION
Mackie would never limit your equalization options to bass and treble. All of the PPM® Series mixers feature Mackie's world-famous 3-band EQs on each channel, with usable center frequencies as follows: 12kHz shelving high-frequency EQ (±15dB), 2.5kHz peaking mid-frequency EQ (±12dB), and 80Hz shelving low-frequency EQ (±15dB).
LOADED WITH EXRA FEATURES...
The PPM's onboard phantom power supply means you can use high-quality condenser microphones, as well as your favorite dynamic mics. Outputs include a 1/4" TRS mixer line output, a 1/4" TRS monitor line output, and left and right RCA tape/line outputs. And because you'd never want to give up an entire channel for a CD player, Mackie provided RCA Tape In jacks, with a dedicated level control, for your favorite external playback device (tape, CD, iPod, etc.).
Possibly the most important feature on the PPM Series mixers is its ingenious Break switch, which mutes channels 1-6, but allows whatever is connected to the Tape inputs to be heard.
ONBOARD 32-BIT DIGITAL EFFECTS
The onboard EMAC™ 32-bit digital effects processor offers a plethora of dynamic digital effects. You can select any one of 16 custom-designed algorithms ranging from small room reverb to "out-of-this-world" phase shifting—and they're all controllable and easy to operate. Both the Monitor Master and Main Master rotary controls have corresponding EFX controls, so you can mix your effects into the monitors as well as the main outputs.
