As soon as I tried to listen to some music in my media player (Media Monkey the quality was rubbish again.
By the way, I discovered that the distorted audio was only on playback - it had actually been recorded.
Constant pops, glitches and audio dropping just made the unit incredibly unpleasant to deal with.
As an extremely long Mackie user (since the late 90s it has restored some of my faith in the company to follow through and not just leave users hanging.Unfortunately, if you were a Windows user and planned on using the unit to track audio via USB, you were pretty much lvbet no deposit bonus code 2018 fucked.Verdict, overall, the Mackie Onyx Blackjack has a lot to offer.Mmmm - not a good start.
For around 100.00 you get a rugged, simple and reliable USB interface that performs its primary task admirably.
Above these controls we have a 48V phantom power switch for condenser microphones, and a further two LEDs which indicate a detected computer USB connection and a power connection.
Having previously owned a first generation Onyx 1220 mixer, I can attest to the build and sound quality of the mixer which is one of the main reasons why I purchased a Blackjack back in October of last year.
Performance also impressed, with latency as low as much more expensive interfaces.
Weve had our hands on one for the past few weeks and here are our thoughts.Mackie Blackjack.0 Drivers, i had some luck using, asio4All driver as a substitute (especially with the latest.11 beta1 build) which brought latency in Cubase down to about 12 milliseconds.If you have a modest budget, dont see your needs expanding and can manage without midi connectivity then we think this interface is well worth your consideration.Features, taking a look at the rear panel of the unit we have USB input on the left for connection to a computer and the sole method used to power the interface.Cons, no midi connectivity, questionable driver support, check price on Amazon.
