Mackie has released several new compact mixers in its VLZ line at the winter NAMM show in Anaheim, Calif.
The new VLZ3 mixers have a wider dynamic range than previous VLZ mixers, including better low frequency response, with less than 0.0007 percent total harmonic distortion (THD) per channel, according to Mackie. In addition, the VLZ3 EQ controls now operate more independently of each other, offering additional creative control over the full frequency range.
The VLZ 3 line of mixers includes the 16-channel 1604-VLZ3 mixer with 16 XDR2 mic preamps, the 16-channel 1642-VLZ3 with 10 XDR2 preamps, the 1402-VLZ3 14-channel mixer with 6 XDR2 mic preamps, and the 12-channel 1202-VLZ3, which has 4 XDR2 mic preamps.
The new VLZ3 series are available now and cost $1099.99, $779.99, $519.99 and $389.99 for the 1604-VLZ3, the 1642-VLZ3, the 1402-VLZ3 and the 1202-VLZ3, respectively.
