The Mackie Onyx Blackbird Premium 16x16 FireWire Recording Interface delivers industry-leading recording quality via eight boutique Onyx preamps and high-end 24-bit/96 kHz conversion in a sleek, rackmount design.Blackbird is equipped with high-end Cirrus Logic® AD/DA converters offering 114 dB dynamic range (A-weighted), phantom power and built-in DIs on the two front panel “Super Channels”.The “Super Channels” also provide quick access to crucial recording tools and feature true analog hardware monitoring, in both mono and stereo, for hassle-free zero-latency recording. The additional mic inputs, onboard 8x8 ADAT and word clock I/O provide easy integration into any digital or analog setup. Blackbird also works as a standalone 8-channel preamp rack.For more complex sessions, the powerful 18x16 Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer allows for quick mix creation and routing of any input to any output at any volume and pan orientation. Additionally, custom names may be applied to all channels and output mixes for quick, at-a-glance reference and control. Blackbird is Mac/PC friendly and ready for most major DAWs right out of the box. No DAW? No problem. Blackbird comes standard with Mackie’s Tracktion 3™ Music Production Software so you can get started recording right away.Onyx Blackbird features a “Built-Like-A-Tank” design, with a sleek, powder-coated all-metal chassis.


 


FIDELITY


Boutique-Quality Onyx Preamps


 


Found on our most expensive studio consoles, Onyx pres are designed to meet or surpass expensive, esoteric standalone mic pres in terms of fidelity, headroom and transparency – as well as improved radio frequency (RFI) rejection and ultra-wide dynamic range. And with a full 60dB of available gain, would-be competitors are left in the dust.


 


CONNECT



Professional Digital I/O


 


Blackbird is the perfect front end to your DAW using the FireWire connection and if you get more preamps later (like another Onyx Blackbird), you can connect them via Blackbird’s integrated 8x8 ADAT I/O, delivering a full 16-channel 24-bit/96kHz resolution recording solution. There’s also onboard word clock I/O perfect for any scenario incorporating multiple pieces of analog/digital gear


 


FLEXIBLE



Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer


 


The Onyx Blackbird is powerful all on its own. However, for more complex applications, Mackie provides you with the custom-designed 18x16 Blackbird Control DSP Matrix Mixer application. This powerful graphic user interface (GUI) allows for customization and ease-of-use that the competition is simply unable to achieve.


 


DYNAMIC



High-Quality AD/DA Conversion



The Onyx Blackbird uses Cirrus Logic® converters offering 114dB dynamic range (A-weighted) – a specification other companies sometimes charge thousands of dollars to achieve. Our preamp circuitry is aligned precisely with the onboard analog-to-digital conversion to always provide you with the most headroom and the lowest noise and distortion possible.


 


SMART



Two "Super Channels"


 



The two front-panel “Super Channels” offer extremely useful features, right within your reach. First off, both channels utilize combo inputs, dedicated 48V phantom power and true analog hardware monitoring, in either mono or stereo, allowing you to route the signals directly to your studio monitors or headphones. Zero-latency overdubs have never been easier to set up or control.


 


ROBUST



Tough but Friendly


 


In true Mackie tradition, Onyx Blackbird features a “Built-Like-A-Tank” design, with a powder-coated, all-steel chassis that can get bumped around with the best of them. With tons of boutique-quality pres, unmatched AD/DA conversion and a host of flexible, professional features…it’s the perfect solution for any studio.
