MACKIE 2404-VLZ3 PDF

Oct 15, by Mike Rivers It was 18 years ago that Mackie introduced the CR, kick starting the emerging eight-track home recording studio. In , a significant facelift brought us the VLZ, with a true 4-bus architecture, sixteen improved mic preamps, sweepable mid-band EQ, and a number of other refinements. The VLZ-Pro Series in further improved the input section, lowered overall distortion, and continued to be a consistent good seller. Then, last year, the third generation VLZ3 line was introduced. Auxiliary send 3 can be assigned to submasters or

Print My church is a portable "church-in-a-box" that leases time in an elementary school gymnasium in Gilbert, Ariz. These have 24 and 32 input channels, respectively, and the "04" designation refers to the fact that these are both four-bus mixers. There are six other, smaller mixers in the line, ranging from inputs, but the and the bring three new tricks to the party that none of the others have-two onboard effects processors, USB connectivity with your computer, and onboard compressors.

The inclusion of these items is gaining popularity with other manufacturers as well, and rightfully so. And certainly having a built-in USB interface not only lightens my load, but also facilitates a really quick turn-around in terms of getting a sermon podcast online. Since the recording can be made directly to the computer, it can be uploaded very quickly, even if basic editing and processing are desired. Each channel strip from features a mm fader, signal routing and solo buttons, a mute button and pan knob.

Up to 15 dB of boost or cut is available on each. Sends one and two are intended for monitors, as they are fixed in pre-fader mode. Three and four can be switched between pre- and post-fader mode as a pair, and five and six are a bit unique. As a pair, they can be toggled between feeding the two internal effects processors or a pair of output jacks for external processing. Each subgroup has its own single-knob compressor-like inputs , very nice for creating drum spank buses and the like.

The one absurd item on the back panel is the headphone jack. A headphone jack on the rear panel? Really, Mackie? The badly placed headphone jack is among my very short list of cons, which is completely outweighed by a lengthy list of pros.

The VLZ3 mic pres have tons of headroom, are dead quiet, and create no coloration whatsoever-I love these. The EQs sound fantastic as well, and failing the inclusion of fully parametric EQ, Mackie has fixed the frequencies of the shelves in useful, musical locations along the spectrum. The auxiliaries allow for really flexible routing, although it would be nice to have an option to switch auxes five and six to pre-fader mode, to allow a completely independent stereo recording via the USB interface.

The delays are just fine, and offer tap tempo right on the front panel-very handy. There are three major features that make this mixer stand out: its compressors, its effects, and its USB connectivity. The compressors are surprisingly transparent, considering their fixed ratio, and they do a good job of keeping levels under control. It would be nice to have them on more than just four input channels, but the four subgroup compressors are very useful.

The USB interface facilitates the recording of four discrete channels and playback of two discrete channels to and from your computer, respectively. This is powerful-it makes for quick turnaround of podcast uploads, and can also enable quick editing, processing, and burning of CDs for churchgoers. These three extras make the Mackie VLZ3 very worthy of consideration.

Mackie 2404 VLZ4

For some years now, Mackie have manufactured two ranges of analogue mixers. The more affordable was the VLZ series, the first three generations of which received plenty of praise. In fact, in most respects the VLZ4 mixers can be looked at as updated versions of their VLZ3 predecessors, as they offer very similar feature sets. However, all of the VLZ4 mixers are fitted with the Onyx preamps.
