Overview

The Mackie 1642-VLZ3 Premium 16-Channel/4-Bus Compact Mixer extends the legacy of the best-selling 1642-VLZ Pro. Perfectly suited for line-level devices such as keyboards and drum machines, the stereo channels feature four-band fixed EQ, while the mono channels utilize Mackie's proprietary three-band active EQ, with sweepable midrange. Ten XDR2 second-generation mic preamps, along with completely redesigned mix bus circuitry give the 1642-VLZ3 its low-noise, high-headroom functionality and superior sound. The new multi-voltage power supply allows it to be used anywhere in the world. Ideal for home and project studios seeking superior performance, the highly versatile 1642-VLZ3 Premium Compact Mixer is equally at home on the stage or in the studio.

Mackie quality shines through!!!

By 

from Saugus California

I recently returned another manufacturers mixer for the 3rd time in 1 year and was fed up! I will not mention the company's name, but let's just say that although they make good knockoffs you need to buy the real deal. I am thrilled with the construction and quality of my new Mackie mixer.The MIC preamps provide a warm tone and the headroom is amazing. I use this mixer for live and home studio production and it is great. If you are considering a German knockoff to save money don't do it! Buy the REAL DEAL, buy a Mackie!!
