We are excited and honored to announce that the Big Knob Series, unveiled at The NAMM Show 2017, won a Super NAMM Award from Pro Sound Network / Mix Magazine! We also want to take this opportunity to thank the thousands of awesome people that stopped by the Mackie booth to check out the three new Big Knob Models and nerd out with us about gear!
From Pro Sound News / Mix Magazine
The 2017 NAMM Show, held January 19-22 in Anaheim, CA, was loaded with new-product introductions, from high-end monitors and microphones to bargain-bundle plug-ins and boutique processors. The editors of Pro Sound News and Mix, representing the NewBay Media Pro A/V Group, roamed the aisles and came away with our picks for Best of Show.
Now with three products in the Big Knob lineup, studios of any size will benefit from the professional source/monitor selection and precise level control that made the original such a popular choice. Plus, with the addition of high-resolution Onyx™ USB recording and playback, studios get a powerful, hybrid solution that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.
The most compact and affordable, Big Knob Passive, offers a rock-solid monitor control solution, allowing users to choose between two sources, two monitors and control it all with one Big Knob. Its no-power-required passive design ensures pristine sonic integrity for any home studio application or for integration into a large studio or group of editing suites. Big Knob Studio adds USB recording/playback and expands on the I/O, offering a routing choice between three sources and two monitor pairs. It includes great studio features like integrated talkback and dual headphone outs. Big Knob Studio+ adds even more features, offering the right I/O for flexible integration into professional studios. The 4x3 routing delivers choice, including a USB playback from a DAW with 192 kHz/24-bit audio conversion. Other tools like a dedicated, amp-driven studio out for a headphone distribution system are ideal for project and professional studios. Both the Big Knob Studio and Big Knob Studio+ offer high-resolution USB interfacing featuring dual Onyx mic preamps, delivering an ultra-wide 60 dB of gain range and award-winning sound quality.
