The Mackie Onyx16 features an enhanced 3-Band “British Style” Perkins EQ based on the same circuit used on classic mixing consoles from the ‘60s and ‘70s. This version designed by Mackie offers greater filter control, minimum phase shift and allows you to pinpoint specific frequency ranges. Creating the Perkins EQ started with the Wien Bridge circuit topology, then determined capacitor and resistor values to give the EQ an extra 6dB (±15dB) of control without excessively narrowing the "Q" or bandwidth of the filters.

Plenty of effects, are built into the Mackie Onyx16. Dive through a deep collection of reverb, chorus, delay and more.
