The Mackie 1604VLZ4 is a 16-channel Mixer perfect for live sound or recording use. Low noise-floor and high headroom is a signature of Mackie’s sound, and the 1604VLZ4 continues this tradition, building on the universal success of the hugely popular VLZ3 range whilst adding new features.
The VLZ4 range has updated mic preamps in the form of 16 Onyx units previously only found on Mackie’s high-end mixers. These quality pres deliver 60dBs of gain, with an extended frequency response and incredibly low distortion, which translates any source material from any mic perfectly.
Each mono channel also has a high-headroom line input, a three-band sweepable midrange EQ, level, pan, solo and overload/mute LEDs as well as an 18dB/oct highpass filter on each mic input. The mixer also features 16 balance inserts for integrating with outboard.
The 16 mono channels, four stereo returns and four subgroups are combined with four aux sends for the ultimate in flexibility. Topped off with 60mm log-taper faders, sealed rotary controls, high-res 12 segment meters and an incredibly rugged steel chassis, the Mackie 1604VLZ4 is gig and tour ready straight out of the box. Whatever you need from your live or studio mixer, the 1604VLZ4 can handle it.
