16-channel ultra-low noise compact mixer with highest possible headroom.

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.

Tracktion 3 Music Production Software
Included with the 1642-VLZ3 is Tracktion 3 Music Production Software which doesn’t make you bounce around endless menus and windows to make music. Based on a simple, single-screen interface, the award-winning Tracktion 3 is a fast, powerful, and complete solution for turning your ideas into finished songs. It comes a plethora of power and plug-ins to keep your music flowing—not locked in menus or limitations.

Comments about Mackie 1642-VLZ3 Premium 16-Channel/4-Bus Compact Mixer:

Considering the price, I'm quite happy with this product. I would recommend you download the user manual from Mackie to make sure it has all the inputs, outputs and routings you're looking for. Some people may expect more from a 16 channel unit but this was fine for me. I like the fact that it has 8 direct outs that I can plug to one of my ADAT recorders and 8 sub outs for the second ADAT. I happen to use a 24 channel Mackie to do the mixing so this unit is dedicated to tracking. I noticed a big difference in sound quality between the expanded range inputs and the normal inputs so again, make sure you read the specifications carefully before buying. Overall I think it's a good value for your money if it fits your application.
