Mackie MainStream is the easiest way to start a pro-quality live stream by integrating video, audio and stream control into a single, powerful device. Simply connect your mic, game feed and other sources straight into Mackie MainStream for a sleek, all-in-one solution that puts essential controls right at your fingertips.

Mackie MainStream features an HDMI input with a video capture card (1080p x 60 fps) and pristine HDMI passthrough for your monitor (4K x 60 fps) so you can stream live and game at a high quality. It's a shame what happened to the radio star, but it's time to move on.

Consolidate and streamline your entire setup with two USB-C inputs for extra cameras, USB microphones, thumb drives, and any other USB devices you want to connect to your live streaming computer while only taking up one port.

It wouldn't be Mackie without high-quality analog audio. In addition to the main mic input (+60 dB), MainStream includes a chat headset input, smartphone input for live streaming phone calls, headphone output and stereo line outs that are perfect for speakers.

When you're streaming live, the last thing you want is to end up menu diving on your computer. MainStream gives you tactile control over levels, plus a row of programmable keys for triggering samples and transitions.

MainStream acts as a capture card for Switch, Xbox, PlayStation and other gaming consoles. Just connect your console to HDMI in and the HDMI passthrough to your television. You can stream with a lightweight laptop and your headset for a low-cost, high-quality option.

Run a professional live streaming battlestation through Mackie MainStream, including a high-end DSLR camera through the HDMI, USB webcam for an extra angle, plus a high-quality XLR broadcast mic and headphones. It all connects to your PC with one USB-C cable.

The flexibility of Mackie MainStream makes it the perfect interface for any type of stream. This "Just Chatting" setup uses a DSLR camera, USB mic, and a smartphone for chatting with a call-in guest. (Mix Minus ensures the caller doesn't hear an echo).

The free Matrix software is entirely optional, but extremely powerful. Add up to 6 virtual inputs (like Discord or Spotify) and 4 hardware inputs and route them all to your live stream. Add vocal effects, tweak your mix and create and trigger samples with 24 virtual pads. You can even use Matrix with devices other than MainStream. It won't get jealous.

Performance Warranty Banner

Protect your investment with the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty

A warranty can be a very important factor when making a buying decision. Because repairs can be very expensive in terms of parts and labour costs, manufacturers usually only provide one year limited warranties that generally only cover items that malfunction due to a manufacturer’s defect. With an important purchase such as a musical
instrument or piece of studio gear, however, many people want to have the peace of mind in knowing that their investment will be protected should the product no longer be performing at 100%.

Because of this, Long & McQuade provides our customers with a FREE one-year Performance Warranty on most of our products. The Long & McQuade Performance Warranty supplements the manufacturer’s warranty to ensure that our customers receive complete “no hassle” warranty coverage within their first year.

How does the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty differ from most manufacturers' warranties?
  • Performance Guarantee: Normal wear and tear is covered, so your product will be performing as well as the day you purchased it for the entire duration of the coverage. Band and Orchestral Performance Warranty does not include replacing pads or cleaning for woodwind instruments, unless deemed necessary by our repair staff. Ultrasonic cleaning for brass instruments will be provided if deemed necessary by our repair staff, but is not routinely offered under the Performance Warranty.
  • Product Replacement: If your product cannot be fixed or costs too much to fix, we will replace it with the equivalent model for no additional charge. If this is not possible, a full refund will be provided.
  • No Lemon Policy: Your product will be replaced should the same problem occur multiple times.
  • Convenient: Easy drop off and pick up of the product at any Long & McQuade location.
  • Guitar Setup: Guitars purchased at Long & McQuade come with 1 free setup, to be redeemed within 1 year for new guitars and 90 days for used guitars.
  • Loaners Available: A loaner product may be given while the product is being repaired.
  • Power Surge Protection: Your product is covered even if damaged from a power surge.
  • Accessory Coverage: Any peripheral devices or accessories that come with your product (i.e. foot pedal, case) are also covered.
  • Commercial Use Coverage: Music and recording professionals who purchase gear for “heavy-use” commercial purposes will still be covered.

Long & McQuade reserves the right to restrict the purchase of additional years of Performance Warranty. Used products come with a 3-month Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Some products (i.e. computers, software, cymbals and other items) are covered only by the manufacturer‘s warranty. Consumables (i.e. strings, reeds, drum sticks, batteries, tubes, cross faders) are excluded as they are designed to be replaced. Cosmetic Damage, Accidental Damage, or problems caused by Humidity or Temperature Issues are not covered. Speakers damaged by overpowering are generally not covered. Our coverage does not provide compensation for loss of use. As of June 2018 the Performance Warranty is no longer transferable. The warranty is only valid in Canada.

Purchasing additional years of coverage

Some manufacturers provide warranties for longer than 1 year; however, these are usually limited warranties that do not provide the same coverage as the Long & McQuade Performance Warranty. Customers interested in more complete and convenient (but not necessarily longer) coverage are still able to purchase additional years of the Performance Warranty.

If you are interested in receiving this coverage for longer than one year, you have the option of purchasing additional years of the Performance Warranty. The pricing is as follows:

  • NEW products: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
  • USED products: 4% of the current new selling price to increase the warranty from 3 months to 1 year. 4% for each additional year.
  • GUITARS: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year. $45 maximum. An additional free setup is not included with additional purchased years of Performance Warranty.
  • BAND and ORCHESTRAL instruments: 4% of the current new selling price to double the warranty from 1 year to 2 years. 4% for each additional year.
