Mackie Onyx Blackjack and Blackbird
The Onyx Blackjack and Onyx Blackbird combine the sonic benefits of Mackie's Onyx mic preamps with high-end Cirrus Logic AD/DA converters and workflow-friendly features.The Onyx Blackjack is a compact desktop 2x2 USB interface. It features two Onyx mic preamp channels, each featuring built-in DIs. Separate level control for studio monitors and headphones, along with true analog hardware monitoring take the guesswork out of zero-latency recording. The rackmount Onyx Blackbird delivers studio-grade recording via eight Onyx mic preamps. A 16x16 FireWire interface, Blackbird also features 8x8 ADAT and wordclock I/O. There are two “Super Channels” on the front panel with dedicated low-cut switches, phantom power and true hardware monitoring options for quick zero-latency tracking. The other channels utilize the Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer for quick setup of independent mixes and the ability to route any input to any output.
