Whether it's a pub, a club, rehearsal space or anywhere else clarity of sound is needed, the NEO Acoustics 12A Active PA Speaker will be a welcome addition to any sound system.
Mackie ProFX8v2 8 Channel Mixer
Boasting eight channels for you to play with, the ProFX8v2 features four Mackie Vita preamps, which provide incredibly quiet signal routing that makes them perfect for real-time live sound applications. Pushing them at full-pelt is no problem for these beauties, responding sweetly to both dynamic and condenser inputs, whilst offering 48 VDC phantom power to all mic channels simultaneously.
As well as the mic inputs, there is a range of balanced and unbalanced 1/4-inch inputs, as well as a Hi-Z input that allows you to directly connect a guitar, bass, or other high impedance instruments.
Built into the ProFX8v2 is the ReadyFX digital effects engine, which gives direct access to 16 awesome reverbs, delays, and choruses that enable you to give any performance the lift it deserves. The control interface allows you to easily dial in the desired effect, which is indicated on the LCD display. The effect can then be muted, the level of the effect attenuated using the FX Master knob and even sent to the monitor mix using the FX to MON knob.
As well as ReadyFX, there is a Graphic EQ that allows you to attenuate and sculpt the mains or monitors with exceptional flexibility. Along each channel strip, there are three Hi, Mid, and Low EQ knobs, which allow you to shape and carve out the signal for each input.
Mackie has included a USB port on the ProFX8v2, which allows recording to be sent directly to your DAW of choice for rapid capture during live and studio performances. There are subgroups available, or you can elect to go for a direct stereo Left and Right mix. There is a separate USB input level control for attenuating the signal during playback. Whether you’re at a party, at a gig, or in the studio, you can quickly playback tracks you’ve recorded with ease. There is also a “Break” switch that mutes all channels so that you can easily switch between playing music and routing the channel inputs. Not only that, but Mackie has included Tracktion recording software so that you can start capturing audio in no time at all.
Cables and Stands
This bundle contains a durable set of PA speaker stands from QTX with a black aluminium finish. Great for getting the most out of your PA speakers the stands scan be adjusted from 1m to 1.85m. With a maximum load capacity of 40kg per stand they can also accommodate a wide variety of speakers. Includes a protective bag for convenient transport.
Along side the stands you get two Stagg SAC10PXM which is 10 metres in length and is perfect for amplifier to speaker connectivity. The connectors are designed to create a flush seal in any socket, maximising surface area for a reassuringly secure feel. The cable is screened against unwanted noise or interference, minimising the chance of your recording or PA signal being affected.
