Mackie Big Knob
For over a quarter of a century, Mackie has been an industry leader in professional audio products. Their goal is simple to provide musicians and audio professionals like you top quality gear at a price that won't break the bank. Mackie's Big Knob Studio Command System is no exception to Mackie's promise of exceptional audio solutions. Big Knob is suited to a wide range of live and studio applications and can even be used in your home stereo system or as part of your keyboardguitar rig. A simple yet powerful desktop audio control center, Big Knob from Mackie allows you to easily select from sets of monitors with the push of a button and control your levels from one (big) knob.
So, how does Mackie's Big Knob work? Simply put, this highly institutive signal routing and monitoring solution lets you get right down to making music in four major ways: level control, studio monitor selection, input source selection, and talkback and headphone control. See that big, shiny volume knob in the center? With this touch sensitive knob, you can adjust your volume levels manually, without the use of a mouse and screen. The result? Faster level adjustments that are extremely precise. The Big Knob is also equipped with built in talkback mic and spring loaded activation switches that give you the opportunity to quickly communicate with musicians in both the studio and tracking room, so no more wild hand gestures through the glass to catch the eye of who you're working with.
On the input side, Big Knob lets you connect up to four stereo input sources at once. This means you can simultaneously hook up your computerDAW outputs, a CD player, a cassette deck and even a turntable with the premium on board RIAA preamp. Want to hook up your keyboard, drum machine or sampler? No problem no matter what you want to hear, your monitors can handle it with a little help from the Big Knob.
And these are only a few of the features that make the Big Knob such a versatile piece of studio equipment. Check out the specific product pages to read more on how Mackie Big Knob can change the way you make music on stage, in the studio and anywhere else there's music to be mixed.
