The Onyx Series Artist 1·2 is an interface designed to let you record audio to your computer, and to monitor that audio as well. With its Onyx microphone preamp, single XLR input, and 1/4″ input switchable between line-level signal and Hi-Z instrument impedance, the unit is suitable for singer-songwriters, podcasters, content creators, and others who want a mobile setup for recording their own projects. In your own project studio, you’ll be able to connect to your monitors by means of the 1/4″ jacks located on the rear of the unit.
The interface is relatively lightweight at 1.1 lb and provides a 1/4″ headphone output, so you can take it with you wherever you go. Mackie’s rugged steel chassis hardware design aids in this endeavor, giving you a robust, roadworthy chassis for the circuitry inside. Should you monitor through headphones, a direct monitor switch is provided, which mitigates any latency as you record your audio. The unit is designed to connect to your Mac or Windows computer over USB, and is bus-powered by the host computer.
The Onyx Series Artist delivers high headroom and low noise by means of its analog circuitry, including its Onyx mic preamp.
A true analog monitoring path allows you to hear audio directly from the preamps as you record, so you can eliminate the latency of hearing the audio through your DAW.
The interface features connectivity over USB 2.0 for fast data transfers and minimal latency. It’s also bus-powered through this port, meaning no external power is required. The unit is compatible with Core Audio and ASIO drivers.
All-Metal Enclosure Design
The Onyx Series Artist gives you an all-metal enclosure and heavy-duty potentiometers, as well as a robust internal construction.
Tracktion T7 Recording Software
Included with the Onyx Series Artist is Tracktion T7, a DAW offering unlimited audio and MIDI tracks. You can record, mix, and share your music easily with this DAW. 16 effects are included for use within the DAW, so you can EQ and compress your signal within your computer.
