20. NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with
the limits for a Class B digital device, pursuant to part 15 of the FCC
Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if
not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If
this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television
reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and
on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or
more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and the
receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for
help.
CAUTION: Changes or modifications to this device not expressly
approved by LOUD Technologies Inc. could void the user's authority to
operate the equipment under FCC rules.
21. This apparatus does not exceed the Class A/Class B (whichever is
applicable) limits for radio noise emissions from digital apparatus as
set out in the radio interference regulations of the Canadian Department
of Communications.
ATTENTION — Le présent appareil numérique n’émet pas de bruits
radioélectriques dépassant las limites applicables aux appareils
numériques de class A/de class B (selon le cas) prescrites dans le
réglement sur le brouillage radioélectrique édicté par les ministere des
communications du Canada.
22. Exposure to extremely high noise levels may cause permanent hearing
loss. Individuals vary considerably in susceptibility to noise-induced
hearing loss, but nearly everyone will lose some hearing if exposed to
sufficiently intense noise for a period of time. The U.S. Government’s
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has specified
the permissible noise level exposures shown in the following chart.
According to OSHA, any exposure in excess of these permissible limits
could result in some hearing loss. To ensure against potentially dangerous exposure to high sound pressure levels, it is recommended that all
persons exposed to equipment capable of producing high sound pressure levels use hearing protectors while the equipment is in operation.
Ear plugs or protectors in the ear canals or over the ears must be worn
when operating the equipment in order to prevent permanent hearing
loss if exposure is in excess of the limits set forth here:

Introduction
Thank you for choosing a lovely Mackie Onyx 1640i
professional compact mixer. It has built-in FireWire,
our premium precision-engineered studio-grade Onyx
mic preamps, along with the newest features and latest
technologies for live sound reinforcement and analog
or digital studio recording, all in a durable, road-worthy
package.
We realize that you must be really keen
to try out your new mixer. Please read
the safety instructions on page 2 and this
page, and then have a look through some
of the features and details in this quick start guide. A
full manual is available on www.mackie.com.
Set the levels
It’s not even necessary to hear what you’re doing to
set optimal levels. But if you’d like to: Plug in
headphones and turn up the phones knob just a little.
1. Turn on the mixer's power switch.
2. Set the solo mode switch to PFL.
3. For one channel, press the solo switch in, and
the rude solo light will turn on.
4. Play something into that input at real-world
levels.
5. Adjust that channel's gain control until the
right main meter stays around the 0 dB LED
(marked "level set").
Setup
6. Disengage the channel's solo switch.
Use the mixer in a nice clean and dry environment,
free from dryer lint and dust bunnies.
8. Turn up a channel fader to the "U" mark.
Zero the controls
1. Fully turn down all the knobs and faders to
minimum, except for the channel EQ and pan
controls, which should be centered.
2. Make sure all buttons are in the out position.
Connections
1. Make sure the AC power switch is off before
making any connections.
2. Push the linecord securely into the IEC
connector on the rear panel, and plug it into a
3-prong AC outlet. The mixer can accept any AC
voltage ranging from 100 VAC to 240 VAC.
3. Plug a balanced microphone into one of the mic
XLR (3-pin) connectors. Or connect any
line-level signal (keyboard, or guitar preamp)
to a line input jack using a TS or TRS 1/4" plug.
4. If your microphone requires phantom power,
press in the 48V phantom power button.
5. You can connect a guitar directly to line inputs
1 or 2 without the need for a DI box. Press a
hi-z switch if you connect a guitar directly.
6. The insert jacks of channels 1 to 16 can be used
to connect an external effects or dynamics
processor into the channel signal chain.
7. Connect the main outputs of the mixer (either
XLR or TRS 1/4") to the line-level inputs of your
amplifier (with speakers already attached) or
to the line-level inputs of powered speakers.
8. Engage the main mix switch in the control
room/phones source selection, so the meters
will show the main mix levels in the next steps.

7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 for the remaining channels.
9. Slowly turn up the main mix fader until you
hear the signals in your speakers or
headphones.
10. If needed, apply some channel EQ wisely.
11. Adjust the channel faders to get the best mix.
Keep the gain controls and faders fully down on
unused channels.
12. During the performance, if you notice a channel
OL LED turning on during peaks, carefully turn
down that channel's gain control until OL does
not turn on.

This diagram shows an electric guitar connected to the channel 1 line input via an amp modeler, a bass
guitar connected directly to channel 2 (hi-z switch in), microphones connected to channel 3-8 mic inputs, and
a keyboard connected to the channel 9 and 10 inputs. An iPod dock connects to the tape input. Headphones
are used to monitor levels.
A dynamics processor is connected to the insert jack of channel 2 to work its magic on your bass. Vocal
compressors are connected to the channel 7 and 8 inserts. A stereo compressor is connected to the main
inserts.
SRM450v2 powered speakers are used as stage monitors for the band; they are connected to the aux 1
send jack (in pre-fader mode). An SRM150 powered speaker receives a mono input from aux 2 send (in
pre-fader mode), and is used as a monitor for your keyboard player. A reverb processor receives a mono
input from aux 3 send (in post-fader mode), and its stereo outputs connect to the stereo aux 3 return inputs. A
delay processor receives a mono input from aux 4 send (in post-fader mode), and its stereo outputs connect
to the stereo aux 4 return inputs. The aux 5 and 6 sends are sent directly to the computer for processing by
whatever VST plug-ins you may desire. These are then returned for playback on channels 15/16.
The club is driven by connecting a pair of HD1801 powered subwoofers and a pair of HD1531 powered
speakers to the main left and right outputs. Recording outputs 1-16 may be used in lieu of a splitter. All inputs
fed into the monitor board may then be re-routed from these outputs into a separate front-of-house console.
A laptop connects to a FireWire port, allowing the 2-channel main mix, and individual channels to be
recorded. Any music (iTunes, mp3s, or other pre-recorded audio) can be played back from the laptop. These
can enter as either a source for the control room and phones, or any available channels.

This diagram shows an electric guitar connected directly to the channel 1 input (hi-z switch in), a bass
guitar connected directly to channel 2 (hi-z switch in), an acoustic guitar mic connected to the channel 3
mic input, studio mics connected to channel 4-8 mic inputs, an electronic drum set connected to channel
9-10 line inputs, and a keyboard connected to channel 11-12 line inputs. A CD player connects to the
tape input for referencing pre-recorded material.
A multi-FX processor is connected to the insert jack of channel 1 to work its magic on your guitar.
A dynamics processor is connected to insert 2 for your bass, and an additional dynamics processor
connects to insert 3 for your acoustic guitar. Compressors are connected to inserts 6-8 for your vocals.
A stereo compressor is connected to the main inserts.
Mackie HR824mk2 powered reference monitors are used for your control room listening. The
engineer's headphones are used to monitor levels.
In this example, auxes 1-2 feed the inputs of multi-FX processors, whose stereo outputs enter the aux
1-2 returns, to be added to the main mix by adjusting the master return knob for auxes 1-2. Auxes 3-6
are set up to provide the feed to separate headphone amplifiers and the bands' headphones. Each
member may set the levels to their liking.
A desktop computer connects to a FireWire port allowing any number of the 16 individual channels to
be tracked at one time using audio production software.
Mixer channels 15/16 can play the 2-channel signals from your computer if the FW 15/16 switches
at the top of the 15/16 channel strips are engaged. This makes for easy playback for any overdubs that
may be necessary.

This diagram shows studio mics connected to the channel 3 and 4 mic inputs and a keyboard
connected to the channel 6 and 7 line inputs. This allows for overdubs when necessary. A CD player
connects to the tape input for referencing pre-recorded material.
Compressors are connected to inserts 3 and 4 for your vocals. An additional stereo compressor is
connected to the main inserts.
Mackie HR824mk2 powered reference monitors are used for your control room listening. The
engineer's headphones are used to monitor levels.
In this example, aux 1 feeds the input of a digital reverb, whose processed stereo outputs enter the aux
1 returns. Auxes 2 and 3 feed the inputs of multi-FX processors, whose stereo outputs enter the aux 2
and 3 returns. Auxes 1-3 may be added to the main mix by adjusting the master return knob for auxes
1-3. Auxes 5 and 6 feed separate headphone amplifiers, there for any possible overdubbing that may be
necessary.
A desktop computer connects to a FireWire port, allowing 16 channels of playback from the audio
production software. Mixer channels 1-16 can play all 16 channel signals from your computer if the FW
1-16 switches at the top of the 1-16 channel strip are engaged. Buses can be used to submix and then
bounce to the DAW. The master output can then be sent to the final destination (tape and/or FireWire
- simultaneously, if needed).
Typical Mixdown System
8 Onyx 1640i
Microphones
EQ IN/OUT
Connect your microphones to the female XLR
connectors on channels 1-16. The microphone preamps
feature our Onyx design, with super high fidelity and
headroom. Professional ribbon, dynamic, and condenser
mics all sound excellent through these inputs.
Microphone-level signals are passed through these
splendid microphone preamplifiers to become line-level
signals.
48V PHANTOM POWER
Press the 48V phantom power switch if your microphones
need it. An LED lights just above the button to indicate that
phantom power is active on that channel. Most modern
professional condenser mics require 48 V phantom
power, which lets the mixer send low-current DC voltage
to the mic’s electronics through the same wires that
carry audio.
Never plug single-ended (unbalanced) microphones,
or ribbon mics into the mic input jacks if phantom
power is on. Do not plug instrument outputs into the
mic XLR input jacks with phantom power on, unless you
are certain it is safe to do so.
LOW CUT
All 16 channels have a low-cut switch that cuts bass
frequencies below 75 Hz of the mic and line inputs. This
will reduce any thumps and bangs due to stage
noise and rumble, and mic handling.
We recommend that you use low-cut on every
microphone application except kick drum,
bass guitar, or bassy synth patches. These
aside, there isn't much down there that you
want to hear, and filtering it out makes the low
stuff you do want much more crisp and tasty.
Not only that, but the low-cut filter can help
reduce the possibility of feedback in live
situations and it helps conserve amplifier
power.
This is a true hardware bypass of the Perkins EQ circuitry to insure that there is no coloration of the signal
if the EQ is not needed. When this button is out, the EQ
controls have no effect on the signal. You may use this
switch to make an A/B comparison between the EQ'd
signal and the signal without EQ.
The 4-band equalization has low shelving at 80 Hz,
low mid peaking, sweepable from 100 Hz to 2 kHz, high
mid peaking, sweepable from 400 Hz to 8 kHz, and high
shelving at 12 kHz. "Shelving" means that the circuitry
boosts or cuts all frequencies past the specified frequency. For example, rotating the low EQ knob 15 dB to
the right boosts bass frequencies starting at 80 Hz and
continuing on down to the lowest note you have ever
heard. "Peaking" means that the frequencies around the
center frequency are less affected by the EQ the further
away they are.
INSERTS
All 16 channels have insert jacks on the rear panel.
These allow you to send the mic and line signals out
to an external device, and back in again on the same
connector. For example, vocals benefit from having
an external vocal compressor. Use standard 1/4" TRS
"insert" connectors, where tip=send, ring=return, and
sleeve=ground.

Another way to use the low-cut filter is in
combination with the low EQ on vocals during
live performances. Many times, bass shelving
EQ can really benefit voices. Trouble is, adding
low EQ also boosts stage rumble, mic handling
clunks, and breath pops. Low-cut removes
all of those problems so you can add low EQ
without blowing your subwoofers.

Quick Start Guide 9
SETTING THE MICROPHONE GAIN
The gain controls allow you to set your input signals
to an optimum level: not so hot that the mixer is
overloaded, and not so low that the signal is lost in
noise. For a signal entering the XLR mic inputs, the
adjustment range is from 0 to 60 dB. Use the following
procedure for setting the gain just right:
1. Press the solo switch at the bottom
of the channel your microphone is
connected to. The flashing rude solo
light is a reminder that what you are
listening to in the control room and
headphones, and shown on the main
right meter is the soloed channel.
2. Make sure the solo mode switch is in
the PFL (pre-fader listen) position
(out). This is just below the rude solo
light and solo level knob.
3. Sing/talk/shout/scream into the
microphone at typical loudness
levels.

Line-level Sources and Guitars
INSERTS
Connect your line-level sources to any of the sixteen
1/4" TRS line input connectors. Each line input can
accept TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) balanced or
TS (tip-sleeve) unbalanced sources.
All 16 channels have insert jacks on the rear panel. These
allow you to send the mic and line signals out to an
external device, and back in again on the same connector.
For example, you could connect a dynamics processor for
your bass guitar.
Line-level sources include keyboards, drum machines,
electronic drum kits, CD players, iPod® docks, guitar
preamp outputs and so on.
SETTING THE LINE INPUT GAIN
If you have a mono source, plug it into the mono input
and the signal will appear equally on the left and right
of the main mix.
If you have a stereo source and want to use channels
1 and 2 for example, plug the left side into channel 1,
and set the pan control fully-left. Plug the right side into
channel 2 and set the pan control fully-right.
LINE/HI-Z
Engage this switch if you want to connect guitars
directly to the 1/4" line inputs of channels 1 or 2. For
line-level sources, disengage this switch.
To connect guitars to other channels, you will need a
DI box, or they will not sound good, particularly the high
frequency response. This applies to most mixers and
channels in general, unless they have a hi-z switch.
LOW CUT
All 16 channels have a low-cut switch that cuts the
bass frequencies below 75 Hz of the line and mic inputs.
See page 9 for more details of low-cut.
The gain controls allow you to set your input signals to an
optimum level: not so hot that the mixer is overloaded, and
not so low that the signal is lost in noise. For a signal
entering the TRS 1/4" line inputs, the adjustment range
is -20 dB to +40 dB for all 16 channels. Use the following
procedure for setting the gain just right:
1. Press the solo switch at the bottom of the channel
your source is connected to. The rude solo light
will flash to remind you that the source playing in
the control room, headphones, and the right main
meter is the soloed channel. Set the solo mode
switch to the PFL position (out).
2. Play your source at typical loudness levels.
3. Adjust the channel gain control until the right
main meter level is hovering around the 0 dB
mark (labeled "level set").
4. Now the gain is set correctly, disengage solo.
5. During a performance, if you notice that the OL
(overload) LED next to the channel fader turns
on, carefully decrease the gain until OL no longer
comes on.

Use these RCA unbalanced stereo inputs to connect
the line-level outputs from sources such as tape decks,
CD/DVD players and iPod® docks. Engage the tape
switch to listen in your control room or phones. Engage
"assign to main mix" to add the sounds to the main mix.
For example, you can play intermission music, or listen
to rare reference material of your band getting it right.

Aux 1-6
AUX SEND 1-6
SOLO
The six mono 1/4" TRS aux sends on the rear panel
allow you to send balanced or unbalanced line-level
outputs to external effects devices or stage monitors,
independent of the main mix.
This button allows you to solo an individual aux send.
If you are using the aux sends to feed your stage
monitors, you may use these buttons to check your
monitor mix. Beside each switch is an indicating LED to
let you easily spot a soloed aux send.
Aux sends 1-6 are independent of each other, so
you can set up six separate aux mixes. The aux 1 send
output signal is the sum of all the channels whose aux
1 send control is set to more than minimum. Similarly,
aux 6 send is the sum of all the channels whose aux 6
send control is set to more than minimum. The overall
aux output level can be adjusted with the aux send
master controls.
The aux send solo is not affected by the solo mode
switch (PFL/AFL), except that in PFL mode only the
right meter indicates the signal. The aux send's
PFL/AFL status is determined by the pre/post switches
next to the aux send masters.
AUX SEND 1-6 TO FW 9-14
Aux Returns
When this button is engaged, aux sends 1-6 are
available as FireWire signals 9-14 to send to a computer.
For example, you can use your computer with audio
production software and effects plugins, as an effects
host. This substitutes wonderfully for an outboard
hardware effects processor. Imagine the amount of
space that would be saved if you utilize your favorite
internal VST effects from the computer instead of
external outboard gear, as well! (Mixer channels 9-14
have no direct FW output when this button is engaged.)

For stage monitor work, use PRE, so the
stage monitors do not increase in volume
when the channel fader is adjusted. This allows
you to set up the monitor mix and levels just right,
Aux Sends Masters
and not have it change every time a channel fader
is adjusted. Stage monitors can either be passive
speakers powered by an external amplifier, or powered
speakers with their own amplifier.

For external processors, use POST. In this way, the
feed to external processors will vary in level if the
channel fader is adjusted. For example, the level of any
returned effect (like an echo) will also change if the
channel fader is changed, keeping them in the same
ratio (wet/dry).

Modification: Pre-EQ Aux Sends
The pre-fader aux sends are post-EQ, so they are
affected by the channel EQ controls. The circuit boards
can be modified so the pre-fader aux sends are pre-EQ
instead of post-EQ. For example, your stage monitors
will not be affected by any channel EQ adjustments.
This modification can be done by an authorized service
center. Contact our technical support chaps for details.
AUX RETURN 1-4
These 1/4" TRS stereo input connectors allow you to
add the stereo processed output from external effects
processors or other devices to the main mix. Adjust the
level of the incoming signals with the aux return master
controls.
Alternatively, you can use these inputs to add any
stereo line-level signals to your main mix, so it could be
another line-level source, not just an effects processor.
If you are connecting a mono source, use the left
(mono) aux return input, and the mono signals will
appear on both sides of the main mix.
EFX TO MON Level Controls
These controls route the signal from aux returns 1
and 2 to the aux 5 and 6 sends. This allows you to use an
external effects device, like a reverb or delay,
exclusively for the monitors. When these controls are
turned up, the stereo effects return signal is summed
to mono and combined with the signals coming from all
the channel aux 5 and aux 6 send controls.
If you want to add reverb or delay to the stage monitor
mixes, these are the knobs for you. Operating
independently of their respectively numbered aux
returns level controls, these knobs are exactly the same
as the aux 5 and aux 6 knobs found in the channel strip.
These two knobs feed their respective stereo aux
return signals to a mono summing amp and then: 'to
aux 5' feeds 'aux return 1' to 'aux send 5' master, and 'to
aux 6' feeds 'aux return 2' to 'aux send 6' master. They
are off when fully turned down, and provide up to 10 dB
gain turned fully up.
RETURN 3 to MAIN/SUBS
With this button up, aux return 3 behaves like the
other aux returns - it delivers a stereo signal, regulated
by its level knob, to the main mix. When you push this
button in, the aux return 3 signals are removed from
the main mix buses and sent to the subs 1-2/3-4 switch,
which diverts the signal once more.
If the aux returns 3 send to main/subs button is up,
the subs 1-2/3-4 button does absolutely nothing. Let's
now assume it is pushed in. Aux return 3's stereo signal
will not be sent to the main mix, but to the subgroup
faders 1 and 2 (subs 1-2/3-4 button up) or to subgroup
faders 3 and 4 (subs 1-2/3-4 button down).
Let's say you've made a stereo drum submix on
subgroup faders 1 and 2, so you can ride those two
faders instead of the seven channels that the drums
came from. Subgroup fader 1 has its assign to main mix
left button engaged and subgroup fader 2 has its assign
to main mix right button engaged, blending the drum
submix back into the main mix. The drum channels are
also sending signals to your reverb via the aux sends and
the reverb outputs are patched into the aux return 3.
Even though you could send aux return 3 directly to
the main mix (aux return 3 send to main/subs button
up), you don't want to. Instead, engage the aux return
3 send to main/subs switch and make sure the subs
1-2/3-4 switch is up. Now the reverb return is blended
into the drum submix, and as you ride the two subgroup
faders, the reverb level will follow.
Why do we want that? Because if you had just sent
the reverb directly to the main mix (aux return 3 send
to main/subs button up) and you did a drum fade-out
using the subgroup faders 1 and 2, the "dry" signals
would fade out, but the "wet" signals would continue on,
defeating the purpose of the ever-important drum
fade-out. All you would hear is the drum reverb (the
"wet"), and none of the original drum signals (the
"dry"). That is because the reverb is being fed by the
channel's aux send, and they have no idea that you've
pulled down the subgroup faders. That is why we
included these switches.
RETURN 4 to CR/PHONES
When this button is up, aux return 4 is routed to the
main mix bus, just as aux returns 1-3 are. When this
button is down, the aux return 4 stereo signal is routed
to the CR/phones matrix instead. It does not matter if
any of the source buttons are assigned, but it will be
interrupted, as usual, if a solo button is engaged.
Let us pretend that you are doing a live mix to a
computer, a house PA, or both, and you want to play
along to a click track. You could run the click track
directly into the main mix, but you do not want the
computer or audience to hear it. Instead, it may be
routed directly to the control room and phones outputs.
Similarly, it may be used for voice-over tracks,
narration, anything you want heard by the engineer and
players but not by the audience and mixdown
deck/computer.
Quick Start Guide 13
Control Room/Phones/Meters
CONTROL ROOM OUTPUTS
Assign to Main Mix
The 1/4" TRS stereo control room outputs can be used
to run a separate sound system in a control room or a
different zone. Connect these outputs to the line-level
inputs of an amplifier running passive studio monitors,
or to the inputs of powered studio monitors.
Except for the main mix, whatever is selected as a
source for your control room and phones can also be
routed to the main mix by pressing this switch. The
main mix does not play in the control room or phones if
this switch is engaged.
The headphones play the same program material as
the control room. The meters show the levels prior to

SOLO
Whenever solo is engaged, all control
room/headphone source selections (main mix, sub 1-2
/ sub 3-4, tape, and FireWire) are defeated, and you will
only hear the soloed channel(s) in the headphones and
control room. This gives you the opportunity to audition
the channels before they are added to the main mix or
sub 1-2 / sub 3-4 mix. The main mix continues to play,
so the show can still go on during solo. The solo mode
switch allows solo to be AFL (after-fader listen) or PFL
(pre-fader listen).

When the solo mode switch is out (PFL), soloed
channels will be pre-fader, allowing you to set the
channel gain without regard to fader level. (PFL is also
post-EQ.) When a channel is soloed in PFL, you can
adjust the channel gain until your input source reaches
the 0 dB LED in the right meter.

Main/Subs Mix
XLR MAIN OUTPUTS
SUB ASSIGN switches
The male XLR output connectors provide a balanced
line-level signal that represents the end of the mixer
chain, where your fully mixed stereo main mix signals
enter the real world. Connect these outputs to the
inputs of your main power amplifiers, powered speakers,
serial effects processor, graphic equalizer, or
compressor/limiter. The output provides a fully balanced
signal playing the same program material as the 1/4"
TRS main outs.
MAIN OUTPUT LEVEL (+4 dB/MIC)
Subgroups are typically used as master faders for a
group of channels on their way to the main mix. Let us
assume you have a drum kit hogging up seven channels
and you are going to want to fade them out at a different
rate than the other channels. You do not want to try that
with seven hands or seven fingers, so just
un-assign these channels from the main mix, reassign
them to subgroups 1-2, engage the assign to main mix
left on subgroup 1 and assign to main mix right on
subgroup 2. Now you can ride the entire drum mix with
two faders: subgroups 1 and 2
When this recessed switch is out (+4 dB), the XLR
main outputs provide a "+4 dBu" line-level signal. You
can then connect these outputs to the line-level inputs
of power amplifiers, powered loudspeakers, or serial
processors. In a studio setting, you could connect the
main mix to the inputs of a professional stereo recorder.
If you engage just one assign to main mix button per
subgroup (left or right), the signal sent to the main mix
will be the same level as the sub outs. If you want the
subgroup to appear in the center of the main mix,
engage both the assign to main mix left and right
buttons. The signal will be sent to both sides.
When the switch is pushed in (mic), the XLR main
outputs are attenuated to microphone level. You can
then connect these outputs safely to the microphone
inputs of another mixer, providing a submix for
keyboards or drums, for example, in a live sound
application. The main outputs can then be plugged
directly into a stage snake, and appear back at the front
of house console like any other microphone level source.
When mic is engaged, you can safely plug the XLR
main output into another mixer's microphone input,
even if it provides 48 V phantom power.

If the gain of each channel has been set up
to FW 5-8
correctly for all your microphones, line-level
sources, guitars, and so on, then these channels can
be added to the main mix by careful adjustment of the
channel faders. The main mix fader is then used to turn
the complete main mix level up and down.

This is the main stereo fader that adjusts the level
of the XLR and 1/4" main outputs, and the tape
output. It does not affect the FireWire output of the
main mix.

These 1/4" TRS output connectors provide the
balanced or unbalanced line-level output of the
main mix. This is the same signal that appears at
the XLR main outputs, except it is not affected by
the main output level switch.

MAIN
MIX
SUB 1-4 FADERS
These faders control the levels of the signals sent to
the sub outs. All channels that are assigned to
subgroups, not muted, and not turned fully down will
appear at the sub outs. Unlike the main out, the
subgroup signals do not pass through an insert jack on
the way to the subgroup faders, although effects may
be acquired easily enough. Simply patch from the sub
outs to the effect's input, and from the effect's output to
whatever the final destination may be, typically back in
on one (or more) channel's input jacks.
The subgroup signal is off when the fader is fully
down, the "U" marking is unity gain, and fully up
provides 10 dB additional gain. Remember that if you
are treating two subgroups as a stereo pair, subgroup 1
and 2 for example, make sure that both subgroup faders
"ride" together to maintain the left/right balance.
The signal at the recording outs comes just after the
input gain control, and before the low-cut switch, insert
jacks, and EQ. This way you can EQ a channel, connect
a compressor or other dynamics processor to the insert
jack, and adjust the channel fader to suit your live mix,
but it has no effect on the signal going to the recorder.
This provides maximum flexibility for the mixdown
stage.
The recording outputs may also be used in lieu of a
splitter. Picture this: all of the microphones,
instruments, DI's, etc - any input connected to an
Onyx 1640i as a monitor mixer - may then be sent out
from the recording outputs 1-16 directly to the line
inputs of yet another Onyx 1640i used as the front of
house mixer.
SUBS 1-4 TO FW 5-8
Engage this button (located just below the sub 2 and
sub 3 fader) and the sub groups can be sent to FireWire
sends 5-8, taking the place of channel direct
outputs 5-8.
This allows the user to combine different channels on
to subgroups and record material to separate tracks on
a DAW. This is particularly useful if FireWire sends 9-14
can not be used because the aux masters have taken
over.

Quick Start Guide 17
Talkback
The mixer's built-in microphone allows you to talk to
the band through the phones outputs or stage monitors.
This can often be charming and enlightening.
TALKBACK MIC
The omni-directional dynamic microphone will pick
up your voice from anywhere in front of the mixer. Any
hint of exasperation and despair in your voice will be
faithfully picked up.
TALKBACK Switch
EXTERNAL MIC Switch
Should the internal talkback mic not be to your liking,
feel free to utilize an external mic of your choice. Be
sure to push this switch down to engage the external
mic. At this point, the built-in mic is disconnected.
Next to the external mic switch is an indicating LED
to let you easily spot when the external mic function is
in effect. 48V phantom power is not available, so be sure
to use a dynamic or ribbon microphone when utilizing
the external mic function.
Aux Sends
Press this switch in to talk. This is a momentary
switch, and as long as you hold it in, talkback is
activated.

FireWire
The mixer comes with a CD containing the PC driver
software needed to use your mixer's internal FireWire
interface. Macintosh OS X contains built-in drivers, and
no software installation is required.
Please check our website (www.mackie.com) for
any updated PC drivers that may exist. If one does,
download this installer and follow the instructions that
accompany the download. Otherwise continue on with
the CD installation instructions listed below.
INSTALLATION ON A PC:
1. Connect a FireWire cable from your mixer to a
FireWire port on your computer.
2. Turn on your mixer.
7. In your audio software applications, select and
activate the inputs from the mixer and outputs
to the mixer.
FIREWIRE CONNECTIONS
Two FireWire connectors allow the transfer of
digital audio to and from your computer or digital audio
workstation (DAW). There are two identical connectors,
but you only need one. The other is used for
connecting additional devices if your mixer is using up
your computer's only FireWire connector. For example,
you could daisy-chain multiple Onyx 1640i mixers or add
an external hard drive since the FireWire connectors
are run in serial. Performance will vary based on system
hardware.
The FireWire interface provides the following outputs
to your computer:
3. The Windows application (XP or Vista) will
start its "Found New Hardware" wizard.
•
Individual channels, tapped pre-fader, and
either pre-EQ, or post-EQ (your choice).
4. In the details that follow, ignore any attempt
to connect to Windows Update to find the
software. Also ignore any warnings about the
software not having passed Windows testing.
Trust software from LOUD Technologies, Inc.
•
Aux sends 1-6 for effects plug-in routing or
alternate mix recording.
•
Subgroups 1-4 for subgroup or alternate mix
recording.
5. Select "Locate and install driver software that
came with your device."
•
Left/right main mix. The left/right main mix at
the FireWire output is not affected by the main
mix fader (important for recording live).
6. You will be prompted to insert the CD that
came with your mixer. Do so.
7. Select "Install," and the driver software should
be installed.
8. For Windows XP users, depending upon your
configuration, repeat steps 1-7 if prompted to
install a second driver.
9. In your audio software application, select and
activate all the inputs from the mixer and the
outputs to the mixer.
INSTALLATION ON A MAC:
FireWire allows you to turn your Onyx mixer into a
high-quality computer audio interface for your DAW.
Use FireWire to record a live performance directly to
your computer, then mixdown to a stereo mix or add
overdubs later.
The FireWire interface also provides 16 channels of
audio from your computer. The first two channels can
be routed to either channels 1-2 or the control room for
convenient monitoring of a wide range of applications
(iTunes®, for example):
•
These can be routed through the control
room/phones via the FW 1-2 button, to monitor
the computer audio through your control room
speakers or headphones (or through the main
speakers if assign to main mix is selected).
•
Alternatively, these same two channels can be
routed through channels 1 and 2, and treated
just like any other channel, with adjustment
for EQ, level, and pan, as well as to solo, and
add to the main mix and aux sends 1-6. In
this way, your stereo computer source can be
used alongside the other channels as "just
another source" in the band, such as a virtual
instrument, or the output of a guitar going
through amp-modelling software. This
routing is done using the FW/line input
selector switches on channels 1 and 2.
1. Connect a FireWire cable from your mixer to a
FireWire port on your Mac.
2. Turn on your mixer.
3. Go to the applications folder, open the utilities
folder, and double-click “Audio MIDI Setup.”
4. Click the Audio Devices tab, and select
Onyx-i in the “Properties For” drop-down box.
5. Here you can see the settings for the mixer.
You can also choose it as your default input or
output, as well as designate it to be used for
system sound output.
6. You’re ready to go with any Mac OS X Core
Audio host application (i.e., Tracktion, Logic,
Cubase, Nuendo, Live, Digital Performer, etc.).
Quick Start Guide 19
•
Note: Route the two channels from your
computer through the control
room/headphones or through channels 1
and 2. Do not use both. To retain your signal
source's stereo image, you will need to pan
channel 1 all the way to the left and channel 2
all the way to the right.
FIREWIRE PRE/POST
Each channel of the mixer can send a FireWire output
to your computer or DAW. The FireWire output from
each channel can be tapped before (pre) or after (post)
the channel EQ. (The output is pre-fader.)
If you want the mixer EQ to affect the FireWire
recording, then set this switch to post. This is useful
in recording channels in a studio (where the recording
includes the beneficial effect of our Perkins EQ).
If you would rather record the straight signals from a
live performance, and EQ them later in your DAW, then
set this switch to pre. This is good for live work, where
you may have added EQ to adjust for the room, and yet
not want this added to your recording.
INPUT (LINE or FW 1-16)
Mixer channels 1-16 can either be fed from the 1/4"
line-level inputs, or by FireWire outputs 1-16 from your
computer. This switch lets you choose which to use.
Either way, all 16 channels receive line-level analog
audio signals just prior to the gain control, so channel
setup, gain adjustment and EQ adjustment are the same
for line or FireWire.
SUBS 1-4 to FW 5-8
Engage this button, located just below the subgroup
faders, and the subs 1-4 mix can be sent to your
computer via Firewire channels 5-8. The sub 1 mix
will appear on FireWire output signal 5, the sub 2 mix
will appear on FireWire output signal 6, and so on. The
FireWire output is affected by the sub faders. (When
this button is engaged, mixer channels 5-8 are not
available to send via FireWire.)
This switch is here for additional flexibility. As
mentioned in the 'Sub Assign switches' section on page
16 you can assign a group of channels to subgroups and
then re-assign those subgroups to the main mix. In that
example, we assigned the seven channels that were
being hogged by the 'can't-keep-a-steady-beat' drummer
to subgroups 1-2. Still with us?
Now imagine this: We have already successfully
recorded the drummer's tracks from the live show
and are returning them from the computer on tracks
1-7. Each of the seven tracks contains a collection of
processing and quantization. Doing so makes each
individual component of the drum kit sound better...
and in time! Those seven tracks can now be EQ'd on the
Onyx 1640i mixer and routed to subgroups 1-2. These
are then transmitted back for recording to your digital
audio workstation (DAW) via FireWire. This is called
track bounce. The seven tracks have now been reduced
to a stereo pair, allowing us to free up processing power
that may be applied to pitch correction and reverb
plug-ins for the egomaniac vocalist. This is called LSD
(Lead Singer Disease).

AUX SEND 1-6 to FW 9-14
Engage this button in the aux master section, and
a copy of the aux send 1-6 outputs can be sent via
FireWire to your computer. This makes it possible to set
up a software effects processor thus-wisely:
•
Set any aux send (auxes 1-6) in post mode, by
pressing the post switch in the aux master
section.
•
With "aux send 1-6 to FW 9-14" engaged, aux
sends 1-6 are available for your computer via
FireWire signals 9-14. (Mixer channels 9-14 are
no longer available to send via FireWire.)
Modifications:
The following FireWire modifications can be done by
an authorized service center. Authorized service centers
may be found online at:
www.mackie.com/scripts/service_centers/search.asp
Please contact our technical support department if you
are having trouble finding an authorized service center
in your area.
Post-Insert FireWire Sends The pre-EQ channel
•
Pass aux 1-6 through your audio production
software running effects plug-ins.
FireWire sends are pre-insert, but the circuit boards can
be modified so that they are post-insert instead. This
allows for the use of an external processor on the mic
or line signal, sending the result to FireWire, while still
pre-EQ.
•
Return the processed output to mixer channels
1 and 2 (input switches set to FW 1 and FW 2).
Post-Fader FireWire Sends The post-EQ channel
•
Alternatively bring the processed sounds into
the control room (engage FW 1-2) and add it to
the main mix (engage assign to main mix).
•
You can even use the computer as up to six
separate mono in / stereo out processors. Have
aux 1 go into one plug-in, and aux 2 go into a
different one, and so on. The stereo outputs of
all plug-ins are combined back into the stereo
stream coming back in to the mixer. Again,
performance will vary based on system
hardware.
FireWire sends are pre-fader, but the circuit boards
can be modified so that they are post-fader instead.
This allows the channel fader to control the level of the
FireWire sends from each channel.
