The Onyx Series Producer 2·2 is an interface designed to let user record audio to the computer and monitor that audio as well. With its dual Onyx microphone preamps, combination XLR-1/4" inputs, and 5-pin DIN MIDI I/O, the unit is particularly suitable for singer-songwriters and producers who make use of MIDI instruments and MIDI hardware. In the own project studio, Users be able to connect to the monitors by means of the 1/4" jacks located on the rear of the unit. The interface is relatively lightweight at 1.35 lb and provides a 1/4" headphone output, so that can take it with user wherever user go. Mackie's all-metal chassis hardware design aids in this endeavor, giving user a robust, roadworthy chassis for the circuitry inside. Should user monitor through headphones, a direct monitor knob is provided, which mitigates any latency as user record the audio. At minimum value, the knob ensures that user hear the direct input from the preamps. At maximum, Users hear the signal as it's routed through the DAW. Use the knob to blend between the two extremes if user wish. The unit is designed to connect to the Mac or Windows computer over USB, and is bus-powered by the host computer.
