Mackie deepens its influence in the studio with two new USB audio interfaces that sit under the Onyx umbrella. Designed for home studios, singer/songwriters and the like, the little boxes take the form factor of other portable interfaces like the Presonus AudioBox and Focusrite Scarlett baby models. Both Artist 1.2 and Producer 2.2 can be USB bus powered and have 24-bit/192k recording, direct monitoring, 48V phantom power, 1/4-inch monitor outputs, and headphone outputs. The 1.2 has a single Onyx preamp and a dedicated hi-Z input, while the dual combo inputs on the 2.2 give it two of each. Included with Onyx USB interfaces is a full license for the Tracktion T7 DAW along with the DAW Essentials Collection which includes 16 plug-ins.
