Everything you need to capture your next project with incredible fidelity anywhere.
All that great MIDI gear shouldn’t go unused. The Onyx Producer 2•2 is equipped with MIDI I/O to keep you in touch with your favorite synths, controllers, sequencers, and more. Perfect for complex live performance and studio setups.
Since Mackie’s early mullet-filled days circa 1989, we insisted that everything we make be able to take the abuse of modern musicians, and Onyx Series USB Interfaces are no exception. With a beautiful all-metal enclosure, extended wear potentiometers, and robust internal construction, these interfaces are in it for the long haul.
