Mackie today announced its new line of ultra-light professional powered mixers — the PPM608, the PPM1008, and the PPM1012. Delivering more sound per pound than any other mixer in its class, the PPM series brings maximum volume — with no distortion &mdash in a light-weight, built-like-a-tank box.

"While they may be lightweight, the new Mackie PPMs deliver mad power," said Gilbert Perales, Mackie product manager. "You won't see smoke when driving dual S225 15" towers from our mixer — the same can't be said about the competition...We provide more than enough power for a complete system," said Gilbert. "Unlike other powered mixers that are crammed with a bunch of useless effects, the PPMs include an arsenal of 'gig-ready' effects and mixing tools," added Perales. "And in Mackie tradition, all 3 will survive years of abuse with features like rugged metal chassis, and integrated metal carrying handles."

Each model features custom-designed Mackie Class-D Fast Recovery™ Amplifiers, which are cooler running and more efficient than their predecessors. A complete set of professional mixing tools includes premium Mackie preamps, 2 built-in DI boxes, 3-band Active EQ, and in-line compressors adding ultimate presence and punch for vocals and instruments. The new onboard 32-bit RMFX+ effects processor boasts a sane, useable set of premium Mackie reverbs, choruses and multi-tap delays that are not found in any other powered mixer on the market.

The PPM608 8-Channel, 1000W powered mixer includes 8 premium Mackie mic preamps, 48V phantom power and 6 TRS inserts. The PPM1008 8-channel powered mixer provides 1600W of power, 8 premium Mackie mix preamps, 48V phantom power and 6 TRS inserts. The PPM1012 12-Channel Powered Desktop Mixer features 8 mic/line mono inputs and 2 stereo line inputs...all the features of a Mackie mic/line mixer, with the added benefit of tremendously powerful built-in amplifiers.

The PPM608, 1008 and will be available in the U.S. in June 2008 and internationally in July 2008. PPM1012's availability is Q3 of 2008. The PPM608 has an MSRP of $779.99. The PPM1008 has an MSRP of $939.99. The PPM1012 has an MSRP of $1,199.00.
