Mackie

Classic Recording Studio Equipment

Mackie was one of those companies that came to prominence in the early 1990s and changed the world with their innovative surface mount mixers, in particular the Mackie CR-1604. Their success was so great, they dominated the small mixer market for most of the 1990s and continued to innovate with a range of mixers, monitors and audio interfaces. Shortly after founder Greg Mackie sold his interests in Mackie in 2003, the company released what where it’s last innovative products; the Mackie QUAD series of products. This included the Mackie QUAD Comp and the Mackie QUAD EQ. These products offered 4 channels of compression or EQ in the digital domain, via analogue inputs and outputs. They were great products that showed real innovation, but are only now really being recognised.

The accuracy of 24-bit recording and the flexibility of workstation editing – without the high cost and complication, that is what the Mackie HDR24/96 Multitrack Digital Recorder offered to potential recording enthusiasts.
The Mackie MDR24/96 was Mackie’s price-busting commitment to nonlinear hard disk recording. For the first time recordist or those replacing aging ADAT®s, the Mackie MDR24/96 was promoted as the perfect choice.
The Mackie SDR24/96 is the ideal solution for live, home or project studio recording. Because the Mackie SDR24/96 is portable (3ru) and lightweight, it is the perfect recorder to travel with bands or sound engineers from gig to gig.
The Mackie QUAD Comp/Gate along with its sibling the Mackie QUAD EQ where two of the last great products to come out of Mackie Corporation. The Mackie QUAD series products provided four channels of analogue in and out, with quality digital conversion to treat the signal in the digital domain, with analogue conversion out.
