    The Mackie Digital 8-Bus is a fully automated, 56-input, 72-channel, 8 bus digital console-with an analog feel-and analog features such as full meter bridge, trim control, mic/line switch, mute, solo, and 100mm motorized faders. These are individual controls, not multifunction buttons or pages on a screen. The "V-Pot" and "V-Strip" give rotary control with single button push accessibility to aux sends and pan-12 aux sends and pan on all 48 channels. With an abundance of DSP horsepower, the D8B offers 4 band parametric EQ, compression, and gating on 48 channels. The EQ, dynamics, and 2 on-board global effects (expandable to 8 stereo effects) are controlled from rotary controls in the "Fat Channel." A true 56 input, 8 Bus digital console with 24 bit main outputs. 
    The D8B runs on Mackie’s exclusive Real Time Operating System enabling the console to integrate into any existing system. The D8B also utilizes a true workstation-class 32-bit Pentium Compatible CPU Processor. Besides riding herd over 48 tracks of audio, the CPU can perform true computer operations like reading and writing to floppy and hard drives and powering full-color monitors up to 21" via a built-in SVGA Video Port. You can even add a PC-compatible keyboard and PS/2(tm) mouse. 
    The D8B boasts over a TeraFlop of instructions per second (Three Billion instructions per second!). Mixers ten times the cost of the D8B don’t have this kind of brutish digital muscle. This horsepower enables the console to run digital functions such as EQ, gating and compression on forty-eight simultaneous channels. The board can be also expanded via optional analog and digital I/O cards and DSP capabilities can be expanded by adding third-party software plug-ins. 
    The Mackie Digital 8-Bus also features both 5.1 and 7.1 Surround-Sound capabilities (actually from 2 to 8 speakers in several configurations) in a user-adjustable 3-D graphic floating window. Industry standard 5.1 configures five output channels, Left/Front and Right/Front, Left/Back and Right/Back, and Subwoofer/Center. The 7.1 configuration adds a pair of Left and Right Center speakers to the five. A green ball, found at the center of the graphics window, represents a visual cue in which users can move off the "sweet spot" (center), toward or away from the designated speakers, moving around the grid. 
    The Surround-Sound window also includes ’Morph’ time-based features. Morphing moves the sound center between point A and point B over a specified time length.
