Mackie PPM1012 12-Channel Powered Mixer (Stereo, 1600 Watts)
Mackie’s PPM1012 powered mixer utilizes the company’s premium preamps for a low-noise sound offered via its eight mic/line channels. A 3-band active EQ makes sweeping through frequencies to make the signal sound sweeter an easy feat. This piece of gear also comes stocked with gig-ready effects. The RMFX+ processor offers 24 FX including a range of reverbs, choruses, and delays. The processor also has a user tap function to allow for time-based effects to perfectly match the music that they are being applied to. The PPM1012 is housed in solid metal, which definitely is a bonus to anyone who has ever had their mixer damaged (or even almost damaged) in the wacky world that is live sound. If a bar fight does escalate into a full-blown riot, the integrated front handle makes it easy to grab your gear and go.
