Send 8 Channels To Your DAW Over FireWire The Onyx 820i really starts working its magic when you plug in a FireWire cable. Your 8 channels sail through high-end Cirrus A/D converters, through FireWire, and into your DAW at up to 24-bit, 96 kHz resolution. Each channel has a pre/post-EQ button for the FireWire output, so you can record your tracks with or without the channel inserts and Perkins EQ applied. For example, if your bassist needs lots of low-end punch in his headphones during tracking, you can kick on his EQ, but press his channel's "pre" button so only the clean, un-EQ'd signal is sent out through FireWire and into your DAW. Or you can insert your trusty hardware reverb for the vocal channel for monitoring, but still record the vocal track "dry." However you set up the routing, FireWire is fully integrated into the Onyx 820i -- so external interfaces or converters are completely unnecessary.
Plays Nice With Your Rack Gear -- And Your Plug-ins Got outboard gear? With 1/4-inch insert plugs on the first 2 channels, you can easily insert your favorite hardware compressor on that bass track. And with 2 aux buses, there's even room to feed your hardware reverb on from an aux send, and return the resulting signal to one of your 3 stereo channels. Now, if you're of more of a plug-ins power user, that's where the 820i's FireWire integration comes in handy. For example, say you're multitracking a vocal group with the 3 Onyx preamp channels, with everyone's headphones running off Aux 1. Aux 2 appears in your DAW via FireWire, ready to be processed in real time by your reverb plug-in. Set the plug-in's output to FireWire, and press the FireWire input button on the 820i's last stereo channel. Now you're mixing the "wet," reverbed signal on a hardware gain pot, and tweaking real knobs to adjust exactly how much the reverb is affecting each vocal mic. It beats trying to mouse pictures of knobs on your computer screen!
With the robustness of a Mackie analog mixer, plus complete FireWire integration, the Onyx 820i packs a whole lot of power into a decidedly desk-friendly footprint. You get 3 great-sounding preamps, 3 flexible stereo inputs, Perkins EQ, and a built-in 8x2 FireWire interface for your home recording setup. Any audio interface can get sound in and out of your computer, but the 820i's extensive routing capabilities make it endlessly flexible -- and real analog hardware never goes out of style.
