Boutique preamps

Your sound is special. You don't want it to go to waste. You want something that will retain every nuance and dynamic detail. Something that will give your sound the platform it deserves. That's why the Mackie 1202-VLZ4 is fitted with Onyx preamps. Boutique quality, sonically divine, and distinctively natural. These are serious preamps that give you the results you're looking for.

With an ultra-wide gain range of 60dB, a huge 128.5dB dynamic range, and an extended frequency response, these versatile preamps give you everything you need to capture true high-fidelity audio. What's more, these preamps boast an ultra-low distortion percentage of just 0.0007-per cent throughout their entire 20Hz to 50kHz frequency range. So you can enjoy crisp, clean sound that stays true to your sources.

Mix it up

Whether you're performing, engineering, or recording, there's one thing that helps you go further. Flexibility. And with Mackie's VLZ4 mixers, it's not a focus word to make them sound more appealing. It's their foundation. The fundamental reason they were created. Because with a VLZ4 mixer by your side, you'll be ready for anything.

So break free from limitations. Let the VLZ4's powerful feature set take you where you want to go, and experience the freedom of creativity.

Intuitive controls make operating your mixer a breeze. Everything is laid out and labelled in a way that actually makes sense, whilst vibrant and memorable colour coding means you don't need to break out the binoculars to make adjustments anymore.

Take advantage of phantom power for connecting condenser microphones, four balanced inserts that are ideal for integrating outboard gear, and twelve high-headroom line inputs for connecting other line-level sources. When you're all hooked up, you can use the switchable 18dB/oct 100Hz low-cut filters on your mic channels to remove any unwanted LF interference or to compensate for the proximity effect. Plus, you can shape your sound with precision thanks to the 3-band EQ on each channel. And when it comes to keeping an eye on everything, 12-segment stereo meters let you view your signals quickly and easily.

But there's more. The 1202-VLZ4 gives you two Aux Sends, Level, Pan, and PFL solo controls for each channel. You can also take advantage of two stereo return connections for hooking up external FX processors or other stereo sources. Plus, there's an ALT 3/4 stereo bus for additional routing, as well as a control room/headphones source matrix for even more flexibility.

In it for the long haul

If you know Mackie, you probably know that they are incredibly proud of their 'Built-Like-A-Tank' approach to construction. Their products are living proof that eternal life is a possibility. Because when you buy a Mackie product, you're not just buying a new piece of equipment. You're investing in your future.

And that's exactly why Mackie builds their VLZ4 mixers to last. A rugged steel chassis with a durable powder-coated finish is built to withstand the rigours of the road, whilst sealed rotary controls fight off the enemy that is dust and grime. Enjoy the good times for a long time, because Mackie will be by your side throughout it all.
