Woodinville, WA (November 20, 2013)—The new Mackie VLZ4 line of analog compact mixers are now available. Each mixer includes Mackie’s Onyx preamps, and the eight new mixers replace the previous VLZ3 generation.
The VLZ4 line includes models ranging from the desktop 402VLZ4 to a choice of 4-bus effects mixers intended for touring live sound work. The new generation of mixers include Mackie’s Onyx mic preamplifiers.
Other key technologies include custom op-amps and negative summing bus architecture, as well as a solid-steel wraparound chassis and grime-resistant sealed rotary pots.
The top-end 24-channel Mackie 2404VLZ4 24 Channel 4 Bus Mixer (shown) features 20 Mackie Onyx mic preamps and dual 32-bit RMFX+ effects processors each with 24 effects including tap delay. Compression on dedicated channels and subgroups allows for simple dynamic control.
