Mackie ProFX12 Professional Compact Mixer
The ProFX12 is the perfect choice for smaller performing acts, solo performers or for small venues that don't have the budget or space for a ton of outboard gear.

The RMFX(Running Man FX) 32-bit effects processor brings "Gig Ready," useable effects to your mixes. Why scroll through hundreds of bizarre effects, like "ghost ambience?" Yeah, like anyone even knows what that means. Or how about winners like "delay+phaser2", which you'll never use in a million years. Those other mixers will leave your fingers raw from all the scrolling you have to do. The RMFXprocessor features 16 solid FX that are known for their utility and usability. Small, medium and large room reverbs with a mix of warm and bright characteristics puts your mix in the right space.

Record and Stream via USB

No worries, integrated USB I/O takes the pain out of recording. Just connect the ProFX12 to a laptop, start up your included copy of Tracktion 3 Music Production Software (or almost any DAW software out there) and you can record the whole mix. You can even stream music from your laptop during breaks. Once you get home, record more tracks or use the ProFX12 to playback some tunes during your next party. Unless you're anti-social, don't have the right kind of place for a party or are just sick of buying food and beverages for everyone. In that case, you can play back whatever talk-radio show you listen to when alone.
Not only that, the innovative "USB Thru" switch allows for an impressive live/recording setup when using performance software like Ableton Live or Reason. When gigging, stream the output of your performance software (or iTunes, for that matter) into the ProFX12. Combine that signal with anything plugged into the mixer, and send the whole thing back to the computer for recording. Archiving your integrated live performances has never been easier!

Mackie SRM450v2 PA Speaker
Live sound sometimes seems like a wild, uncaged animal”very hard to control. With the SRM Series Portable Active Loudspeakers, Mackie has come up with the technology to help tame the beast, so you could focus on your performance, instead of being distracted by constant EQ and level tweaks. With the SRM450v2, live sound is whipped completely into submission, giving you more control over your shows than ever. Thanks to its all-new design”from adding new amps and transducers to a new lightweight power supply”the SRM450v2 surpasses the performance of the original SRM450 to deliver pure studio monitor sound at more powerful, full-on loudspeaker levels. With the SRM450v2, live never sounded so good¦or behaved so well.
Ultra-Wide Dispersion < Br>
When the SRM450v2 loudspeakers are on stage, no matter where you stand, you hear sound with impeccable stereo imaging, depth of field and definition”at full-on loudspeaker levels. which is achieved through its multi-cell horn throat aperture.
Stunning Bass via Servo Feedback Controlled, all new Neodymium Woofer < Br>
Many portable loudspeakers produce lows that lack substance”they just don™t have it in ˜em to give you that chest-pounding punch. But the SRM450v2 delivers astonishingly deep and defined bass frequencies. In fact, it outperforms the original SRM450, which was renowned for its ability to deliver real low-down sound. That' thanks to the SRM450v2' servo feedback technology combined with its all-new neodymium woofer and 3-inch voice coil.
Based on Mackie's award-winning HR824mk2 studio monitor technology, the servo feedback damping electronic circuit within the SRM450v2 œlocks the woofer in place with the positive and negative outputs of the amplifier. This creates a solid direct-coupling that allows the SRM450v2 to deliver extremely deep bass from a small cabinet. And the new neodymium woofer' magnet is lighter in mass, therefore faster than ceramics, giving the SRM450v2' bass more punch. The new longer 3-inch voice coil allows the woofer to handle heat more efficiently, so it produces a consistently full dynamic range”even at maximum output. So you get full, thumping, detailed lows, even after long hours of use at near-peak volumes.
Super low distortion < Br>
Thanks to Mackie's own Class-D, Fast Recovery Amplification with its combination of Class D topology and Fast Recovery circuitry, the SRM450v2 operates with incredible efficiency, and delivers much more power and clarity. With this "Class D Fast Recovery amplification," the SRM450v2 handles maximum volume”and associated heat”with ease, so there's no unwanted noise, and no thermal problems. Even after hours of sustained use at near-peak levels, your sound remains clean and your SRM450v2 keeps cool.
Legendary Active Electronics < Br>
In a passive loudspeaker setup, an external amplifier is connected to a passive crossover inside the speaker, which distributes frequencies to the transducers. Because power amps and transducers vary widely in sound and quality, trying to match the right power amp with the right speaker can be challenging, especially if you're not a professional acoustic technician”or rolling in cash so you can hire one. Mackie's proven Active design does all the work for you. With the SRM450v2, you get a complete loudspeaker system, with complex electronics and carefully chosen components, all precisely tuned and tweaked to work together. The result is a loudspeaker with phenomenal sound quality and power, that's completely plug-and-play”no EQ needed.
Built-in Protection Circuitry for Long Life< Br>
Mackie knows their Active loudspeakers are pushed hard”often to, or beyond, the limit. That's why Mackie has reliable protection circuitry built in to every one. The SRM450v2 employs a built-in limiter for less distortion at peak levels. And thanks to the advanced technology of its power supply and Class-D amp topology, the SRM450v2 is greater than 90 percent efficient”more of the power from your outlet goes straight to the transducer, without the power supply and amp giving off loads of heat. Less heat means better performance, and longer life.
Versatile, Portable, Tough”And They Look Good, Too< Br>
When designing the SRM450v2, Mackie considered every angle. From every angle is just how you can position it, too”pole-mount it from the bottom, fly it vertically or horizontally via itsoptional hanging bracket, or use it as a wedge monitor. With all this flexibility, it's the most versatile portable Active loudspeaker around. And now moving it into place is easier than ever. Weighing in at just 26 pounds”now that's light!”you'll have more than enough strength left over to deliver an electrifying performance after loading in. Plus, the SRM450v2 retains its rugged, Mackie "built-like-a-tank" durability, thanks to the polypropylene cabinet”now in a tasty hue of Midnight Blue. So not only do you get a portable loudspeaker that sounds phenomenal, you get one that's tough and portable for the road, and handsome enough for the show.

Comments about Mackie ProFX12 / SRM450 V2 PA Package:
Love the speakers... but the mixer leaves a bit to be desired! Feels cheap and has a bit of an "artificial" sound- too much color... EQ seems to only "enhance" the color- can't get rid of it.
