Mackie’s new FreePlay is a highly portable, all-in-one stereo personal PA featuring a battery-powerable design, Bluetooth music streaming capabilities (mixable with XLR or TRS inputs), and more. With the Mackie FreePlay Connect app, users can control parameters including levels, EQ, a feedback destroyer, etc. It’s a surprisingly powerful little PA, quite useful for rehearsal, impromptu outdoor performances such as busking, and more. Stay tuned to the pages of Pro Sound Network and this website for a full review of the FreePlay, coming soon.
Mackie has announced its “Sorry I’m So Awesome” contest with a chance to win a Mackie FreePlay. The company created videos with humorous “deep thoughts” on how awesome FreePlay owners can be. How to win: watch the videos, be inspired and tell Mackie how awesome you are. The contest runs through September 31, 2015.
Two winning entries will be chosen and used in new “Sorry I’m So Awesome” videos that will be posted to the Mackie YouTube channel and shared via social media. Winners will also receive a FreePlay Personal PA along with the Lithium-ion Battery, Kickstand/Pole-Mount and Carry Bag accessories. In addition to those grand prize winners, multiple entries will receive a Mackie t-shirt and their entry will be featured on the Mackie Facebook and Twitter pages.
