The mixer has 16 built in effects that cover the most popular options commonly used when adding effects to a live mix including delay, reverb and different hall types. Options are limited to 16 but they are high-quality 32-bit effects that are suitable almost any occasion and purpose.
Getting the sound right for your room, indoor venue or outdoor location is not always easy because of walls and other things to interrupt the sound but the PROFX8 makes the job easier with a range of EQ options including channel EQ and a stereo graphic EQ with 7 bands to give you the sound you need.
The PROFX8 also has USB connectivity for recording live performance to a computer so you can offer your karaoke party guests a recording of their performance to take home or listen back to your own performances on a computer to help improve your singing skills.
The price range of the PROFX8 is around $229 to $299 making it an affordable mixer for karaoke or live mixing. This list price bracket means the Mackie PROFX8 offers great value for performance.
