    Mackie 1202VLZ4 reviews

    1202VLZ4 12-Channel Compact Mixer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Portable Mixer I really do like this compact mixer for what it does. It's small, portable and does everything a small professional mixer should do. The only negative is that I wish the mute buttons had lights so it would be easier to see if a channel was muted or not.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mixer! This machine is great! This mixer is a joy to work with, and is easy to use. I have used a mackie vlz3 before. Which to me had top notch audio output. The vlz4 maintains that quality. If not improves upon it. This thing feels like it is built to last. It is a very sturdy machine. All the materials used look and feel high quality. I love the all black finish, and overall color scheme of the knobs. This mixer will not let you down.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mackie's best yet Mackie has topped itself again. Super quiet preamps. The best.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have three and I would buy three more i have used Mackie mixers in my studio and on location for music gigs and three they get the job done with superb quality. Mackie has the best pre-amps for my mics. I like the fact that the 1202 VLZ4 has two aux sends and more important to me two aux returns. Some mixer do not have aux returns and using another channel is just a wasted channel to me. A good mixer that delivers great sound quality

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Construction. Quiet Pres. Good Headroom. Simplicity. I am a touring noise and modular synth performer and I recently switched to this mixer to run my portable live gig rig. The mixer has a heavy and durable feel and I'm sure it will last a long time. Standard IEC power connector on the back is nice. Mixer is heavy because the transformer is build in the case. NO WALL WORTS! Better than the flimsy power connector on the back of some competitor's mixers. On initial inspection with headphones you will realize that the preamps are very quiet even at max gain. The channels also have enough headroom to handle modular synth levels. Pre-fader Listen / Solo is AWESOME! 2 mono sends and 2x stereo returns are really nice for my synth reverbs. The meters are responsive and helpful to keep track of your headroom. Only cons aren't a big deal. The color scheme is too much bro-like monster energy drink dirty rave hippy for me. I much prefer the knob colors on the older VLZ. The pots feel decent but they are not anything fancy. Would like a sweepable mid for eq in a mixer in this form factor. Would like direct outs on every channel. Would like a built in audio interface or expansion card in the vlz series. That would be a much more expensive mixer.
