Header Mackie is on the road in Europe, showing off the all new Onyx-i Series FireWire Recording Mixers and the HD Series High-Definition Powered Loudspeakers.

DAY EIGHT: Feedback - Rotterdam, NL

VAN CONDITION: Virtually destroyed. Only two wheels and an half a seatbelt remain.

CREW CONDITION: At the brink of insanity.

Feedback LogoDay eight marks the final stop on Mackie's Euro Road Trip. After Kent kicked Ben out at the last stop, he made his way to Rotterdam, in the Netherlands. Rotterdam is better enjoyed with good company, but is so rich with culture and good people that you can easily make new friends.

Onyx1640i Rotterdam is one of several locations for Feedback, a full service pro audio dealer. The staff was very kind and really treated the crew (and I use that term loosely) well. Kent spent the day training the staff on the new products and talking to customers that came through. The store itself is set up extremely well and fosters a great environment for playing with your favorite gear.

HD-Series As this tour has proven, the new Onyx-i mixers were received very well. Everybody is into the compact footprint of the 820i, which doesn't sacrifice on features and, of course, the flagship 1640i, whose built-in 16x16 FW interface allows users to pull off a true tape-style mixdown. Everyone wants their hands on one.

We all need a little break after this trip, but stay tuned for a re-cap. Thanks for following along.
