Mackie Big Knob

The Mackie Big Knob is a studio staple for a reason: its straightforward user interface and tactile front panel layout make mixing a breeze. This compact desktop unit provides an efficient means of monitor switching and level control, complete with talkback functionality. Its rear panel connections allow for the integration of multiple sources, granting users the ability to switch between three sets of studio monitors, four stereo sources, and the ability to route customized headphone mixes while communicating via talkback microphone. All of this and more makes the Mackie Big Knob a welcome inclusion for any studio setup.
