Mackie 2048720-00-RB Onyx Producer 2.2 2x2 USB MIDI Audio Interface - Certified Refurbished


The Mackie Onyx Producer 2.2 is a USB audio/MIDI interface designed for high-resolution recording and monitoring in home and project studios. With its dual Onyx microphone preamps, combo XLR-1/4" inputs, and 5-pin MIDI I/O, the unit is particularly suitable for singer-songwriters and producers who make use of MIDI instruments and MIDI hardware. In your own project studio, you'll be able to connect to your monitors by means of the 1/4" jacks located on the rear of the unit. The interface is relatively lightweight at 1.4 lb and provides a 1/4" headphone output, so you can take it with you wherever you go. Mackie's all-metal chassis hardware design aids in this endeavor, giving you a robust, roadworthy chassis for the circuitry inside. Should you monitor through headphones, a direct monitor knob is provided, which mitigates any latency as you record your audio. At minimum value, the knob ensures that you hear your direct input from the preamps. At maximum, you'll hear the signal as it's routed through the DAW. Use the knob to blend between the two extremes if you wish. The unit is designed to connect to your Mac or Windows computer over USB, and is bus powered by the host computer.


Analog Circuitry

The Onyx Producer 2·2 delivers high headroom and low noise by means of its analog circuitry, including its Onyx mic preamps.


Two 5-pin MIDI jacks are provided—one for accepting MIDI signals and another for outputting MIDI to compatible devices.

Direct Monitoring

A true analog monitoring path allows you to hear audio directly from the preamps as you record, so you can eliminate the latency of hearing the audio through your DAW. The knob allows you to blend between direct monitoring and listening off your DAW.

Bus Powered

The interface features connectivity over USB 2.0 for fast data transfers and minimal latency. It's also bus powered through this port, meaning no external power is required. The unit is compatible with Core Audio and ASIO drivers.

All-Metal Chassis Design

The Onyx Series Producer gives you an all-metal enclosure and heavy-duty potentiometers, as well as a robust internal construction.
