You Pay: $699.99

The Mackie VLZ3 series are the latest in the popular VLZ line of small format mixing consoles. The VLZ3 is an improvement on the favored design with enhanced XDR2 microphone preamplifiers, an ultra quiet mix bus with improved headroom and a new look.

The1604-VLZ3 provides the quality and features that target most recording, P.A. and live applications. The Popular 1604-VLZ3 features sixteen line inputs, switchable between balanced and unbalanced signal. Sixteen insert points are standard and provide plenty of routing options to external signal processors. The 1604-VLZ3 features Extended Dynamic Range (XDR2) mic preamps that result in pristine, transparent audio signal at an impressive 130dB of Dynamic Range. XDR2 mic preamps are optimized to meet the demands of 24-bit, 192kHz recording.

The rugged design and steel chassis virtually eliminates noise caused from poorly shielded cable and ground loops. The 3-band EQ section features a sweepable mid range and four AUX sends provide options for routing signal to effect processors. Four dedicated buses and eight direct outputs provide plenty of routable outputs for sending signal to multitrack recorders, monitor feeds etc.

Improved Mix Bus
