LOUD Technologies Inc. (parent company of Mackie) in Woodinville, Wash., announces that it has signed an agreement with Avid that licenses the use of Mackie’s new Onyx-i Series FireWire Recording Mixers with Avid Pro Tools M-Powered 8 software.

To enable use with Pro Tools M-Powered 8, users will need to purchase the Mackie Universal Driver upgrade ($49.99) at www.mackie.com. Downloading and installing the driver will enable the Onyx 820i, 1220i, 1620i and 1640i mixers to be used with Avid Pro Tools M-Powered 8 software.

“For years, Mackie customers have wanted to combine the familiar workflow of an analog mixer with the world’s most popular DAW,” says John Boudreau, VP of LOUD’s Music Gear group. “Through our newly signed agreement with Avid, Mackie’s Onyx-i mixers now make this possible.”

Chris Gahagan, Senior Vice President of Products at Avid, says, “Avid has made openness a key component of its ongoing strategy, and this agreement with LOUD is a perfect example of how we continue to open up our ecosystem. As joint developers of the HUI protocol, Avid and LOUD have a history of working productively together, and we’re pleased to be working together on this latest endeavor to provide our customers with more choice and flexibility when it comes to unleashing their creativity.”

Mackie Onyx-i Series FireWire Recording Mixers are now available at Mackie-authorized dealers worldwide. For more information on this series, visit www.mackie.com/onyxiseries.
