16-channel ultra-low noise compact mixer with highest possible headroom.
The Mackie 1604-VLZ3 Premium 16-Channel/4-Bus Compact Mixer builds on the legacy of the best-selling 1604-VLZ Pro mixer. 16 studio-quality XDR2 second-generation mic preamps, along with redesigned 3-band active EQ circuitry (with sweepable mids), give the 1604-VLZ3 its greatly enhanced sound quality. All channels feature insert points and line-level inputs for extreme versatility. The unique Rotopod option allows for 2 different desktop, and 3 different rackmount configurations. The new multi-voltage power supply allows it to be used anywhere in the world. Ideal for live use, and home and project studios seeking superior performance, the versatile 1604-VLZ3 Compact Mixer is equally at home on the stage or in the studio. It also includes Tracktion 3 Music Production Software.

Comments about Mackie 1604-VLZ3 Premium 16-Channel/4-Bus Compact Mixer:
Perfectly laid out mixer with just about all the features you would want. The newer preamps sound very good, even copmpared to some high end consoles. There is a lot of bad press about the sound of these boards and their older counterparts as well as the quality. The sound is very good on many of the newer ones, however many are made in China and they show it. Find an older, U.S. made version and move the pots and sliders, then move the pots and sliders on this one or any other made in China Mackie. You will quickly see exactly why there is a good reason to be careful about buying this board.
