Mackie 402-VLZ4 Overview

The Mackie 402VLZ4 4-Channel Ultra-Compact Mixer features Onyx microphone preamps in an ultra-compact design and is suitable for professional low-input applications. From every input to every output, the mixer is designed to provide the highest headroom and lowest noise possible for maximum signal integrity.

The mixer is built like a tank with a rugged solid-steel chassis and high-contrast controls for discernible tactile control. With features like instrument level inputs, phantom power, and level metering, the 402VLZ4 4-Channel Ultra-Compact Mixer is a good choice for anybody who is big on performance, but light on inputs. The bottom panel of the mixer features has three non-threaded holes that allow it to be fitted with an optional microphone stand adapter (sold separately). This lets you support the mixer on a standard microphone stand and adjust its height and level to whatever suits your preferences.

Mackie 402-VLZ4 Reviews

Perfect Match for My Video Switcher

By John
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-04-14

I actually bought this for the tape out. My Roland V-8HD switcher only has RCA as an analog in, which can result in impedance problems from balanced stereo feed. Mackie 402-VLZ4 solves the problem. Board mix to Ch. 3 stereo bal/unbal in, RCA tape out to switcher. Impedance problem solved. The 2 mic preamps are a bonus. Very clean sound.

Rock Solid Compact Sound Mixer

This is perfect for my production needs. Solid and compact it packs a punch. I am digitizing old SVHS footage and run the sound through this for better control and adjustments. Does a great job. Mackie has a great reputation. Highly recommend!

OK home pre-amp

I'm cheating a bit and using it as a pre-amp. My home stereo still sounds great but it's old and the pre-amp was the first to hit that great gig in the sky. The little Mackie works just fine as an affordable pre-amp between the CD player and power amp.

Great for desktop computer use

I use this to take the audio from my editing computer and split to my desktop monitors and headphones.� It works perfectly and has a tiny footprint on my desk - exactly what I needed. Also great to pack up and take into the field for small audio jobs.

Little tool with big value.

Great little tool. Speakers sound better than ever.

Be careful on what speakers you use it on

Does not have enough output to drive our speakers in our open area. Works okay with smaller speakers.

Should work for my purposes

By Michael

I haven't taken it into the field yet, but tested it thoroughly in my shop. I was concerned that it didn't have an AUX or MON out, only the headphone jack with volume adjustment. But for my needs, it should work fine. The fidelity/gain from MAIN OUT and HEADPHONE seem to be identical. So I can send the main signal to a PA system, and the headphone signal to my stream/record setup, with separate fade control. Hope this helps someone out there.

Awesome for podcasting.

I had to return the first unit, there was a strange interference coming through the speakers. The second unit worked fine. Mackie updated the AC adapter, not sure that was for the better. The unit works great for podcasting and its small form factor doesn't take up a lot space on my desk.
