JUNE CLEARANCE THE MACKIE BIG KNOB (USED) £200+VAT
The Mackie Big Knob is a simple desktop control box that allows you to get right to the business of making music in four
The Mackie Big Knob is a simple desktop control box that allows you to get right to the business of making music in four major ways: level control, studio monitor selection, input source selection and talkback & headphone. It is the ideal piece of hardware for the age of computer-based recording studios, allowing you to conveniently liaise between your studio tracking room and your digital audio workstation (DAW). Via a series of dedicated buttons you can quickly switch between inputs and output monitors, send your musician’s custom headphone mixes and communicate with your control room via the Talkback microphone.
The main focal point of the Mackie Big Knob is its ‘big knob’ giving you a more hands-on precision control of volume rather than with a mouse and screen. The Big Knob has a multitude of rear panel connections that will suit your needs and the dedicated buttons make it easy to switch between three sets of studio monitors and four different stereo sources. Included with the Big Knob are typical useful functions you would find in a recording studio, such as a dim volume button that cuts the sound instantly when required. The Talkback microphone is infinitely useful when using soundproof rooms to record music. There are two headphones sockets which come in handy when your recording studio doubles up as your living space.
The Big Knob is robustly built and designed in such a way to sit neatly on your desktop. It plays a crucial link between recording outputs and studio monitors and the pristine sound quality the Big Knob offers reflects this important role. Acting like a small mixer, the Mackie Big Knob is great for those who use a DAW and require a studio command system to control all input and outputs from one source.
