Rated 4 out of 5 by Tom the sound tech from A solid interface This is a solidly built interface. Skip to main content. I have to keep my laptop plugged into a charger when I use it, especially if I’m running a mike with phantom power. Works instantly on Mac Lion no drivers to install but will override the internal sound card speakers in the CPU are shut off. Having a built-in DI is great when you just want to plug in to record a quick riff or synth sound without the fuss of dealing with a traditional DI, and not having to carry a DI or two can make a big difference if you need to pack light.

Rated 5 out of blacjack by Fighting Bill from Cool Product Top-notch components, super solid design, simple operation. Mac OS X Featuring a true analog monitoring path directly from the preamps to your studio monitors and headphones means you can track while listening in either mono or stereo to the direct analog source with zero routing.
The unit needed to be able to send the audio into a Laptop over USB, and also have other outputs to go to other recording devices.
Also, the sound quality to the headphones is much better, especially in the low end, than using the little miniplug on my Mac. The ’tilt’ bracket sets the unit up perfectly for desktop use MRmk3 Series Studio Monitoring. It is just what I needed to drive the studio monitors and plug in an xlr microphone, guitar or other instrument.

Found on our most expensive studio consoles, Onyx pres are designed to meet or surpass expensive, esoteric standalone mic pres in terms of fidelity, headroom and transparency — as well as improved radio frequency RFI rejection and ultra-wide dynamic range.

This device is also powered by the USB bus so we are eliminating a power block as well from the setup. Rated 5 out of 5 by Noodlearms mckie Best bang for the buck For the price, this interface can’t be beat.
Rated 5 out of 5 by VelvetPiano from Ear-blowing clarity and pick-up! It worked right out of the box with Garage Band and it is the same quality audio pre-amps that come with the Mackie mixers – super quiet.
Here’s some ideas for you. The studio monitor and headphone outputs have independent level controls for maximum flexibility. Makcie 5 out of 5 by k9kev88 from Awesome value and it works so well Onyx Blackjack I have used Mackie mixers in the past, so I was pleased to see this offered for connecting high quality mics to a laptop through USB MacPro laptop.
Onyx Blackjack USB Audio Interface – Mackie
Blackjavk you have a nose-picking spider in the attic, you WILL now hear it, if you plug a microphone into this unit! Line to Monitor direct monitor analog path, stereo 22Hz to 22kHz bandwidth, 1kHz: Just being able to control headphone and speaker volume separately and have the option of adding a voiceover or keyboard track with hardware monitoring to a video is very useful. Having a built-in DI is great when you just want to plug in to record a blackack riff or synth sound without the fuss of dealing with a traditional DI, and not having to carry a DI or two can make a big difference if you need to pack light.
Overall a great product! And with a full 60dB of available gain, would-be competitors are left in the dust. I want to keep things simple, shortest signal path, minimal coloration, maximum monitoring options etc. I’m using it with a 2 x 2.
Both channels double as built-in Dis which is perfect for direct connection of guitars, basses, keyboards, drum machines, etc. The analog to digital converters offer dB dynamic range A-weighted and the preamp circuitry is aligned precisely with the conversion to always provide the best headroom and the lowest noise and distortion possible. This unit is also very heavy duty – nice and solid feeling.
Update Unrecognized Zip Code. I love not having to install drivers on OS X – even though this interface is blacjjack a few years old, I can rest assured that it will still work for a long time since it’s class compliant.
Preamps are much cleaner and less noisy than the Steinberg interface I used to own, which is the main reason Blacknack switched.
HRmk2 Series Studio Monitoring. The Blackjack puts this issue to rest once and for all, featuring a true analog monitoring path directly from the preamps to the studio monitors and headphones.
Smooth controls, clean output, and easy to use.
