Mackie 402-VLZ3 4Ch Mixer with 2 XDR MicPres & EQ

Now includes Tracktion 3 Music Production Software for Mac or PC

Until now, mixers built for low-input, two-mic or one-mic-and-a-guitar applications really skimped on quality. With their flimsy construction and dismal sound, they resembled and performed like children’s toys. So Mackie created the 402-VLZ3, the perfect ultra-compact mixer for applications that require few inputs, but demand full-on professional sound. The 4-channel 402-VLZ3 delivers pure VLZ3 quality in our smallest form factor ever, making it ideal when your input counts are low, or when space is at a premium. In a sleek, small package, you get the signature VLZ3 high headroom, low noise design, complete with 2 XDR2 preamps, premium EQ, and modern mix bus architecture, for the best-sounding, mini-est pro mixer on the planet. And the price is mini, too—in fact, it’s our lowest price in recorded history for a VLZ3 mixer. At last, you no longer need to buy more mixer than you need just to get the quality you deserve.


XDR2 preamps
Extended Dynamic Range=Extended Sonic Possibilities

XDR2Among the features that have earned the VLZ3 mixers their stellar reputation are the XDR2 “Extended Dynamic Range” mic preamps. That’s because serious amounts of time and energy went into their design, and the result is phenomenal. You simply won’t find preamps this good on any other mixer in this price range. The XDR2 preamps deliver pure, clean, studio-grade sound—the kind of quality you’d expect to find in pricey boutique mic pres. They have an incredibly wide frequency range, especially in the low end, and even at extremely high gain settings. They offer incredibly low noise, amazing RFI rejection, and with 60dB of available gain per channel, the 402-VLZ3 can handle inputs ranging from a whisper to a scream. With the superior sound of the 402-VLZ3’s two XDR2 preamps, rest assured you will always get optimum performance out of your professional ribbon, dynamic, and condenser mics.


Musical EQ for Your Tweaking Pleasure

EQ Knobs The 402-VLZ3’s ultra-musical 2-band Active EQ provides just the right amount of sound shaping flexibility. We invested tremendous resources into optimizing the center frequencies of our EQs, and improved the interaction of the separate EQ bands, so your tracks can be molded and tweaked for the perfect result. The 402-VLZ3’s low shelving at 80Hz and high shelving at 12kHz mean you can quickly and effectively sculpt your tone for the ultimate in punch and brilliance—and with up to 15dB boost/cut capability per band, you get loads of latitude. There’s also a 100Hz low cut/high pass switch for each mic input, so you can keep the ultra-low frequency muddiness out of your sound—and give your bass that extra punch if used in conjunction with the Low EQ.


Small Yet Powerfully Flexible

Though small in stature, the 402-VLZ3 provides an incredible abundance of professional features and mission-critical tools to enhance your mixing experience—and your creativity. In addition to essential features like phantom power for your condenser mics, you get a variety of user options that make the 402-VLZ3 a surprisingly versatile mixing machine. Two switchable Hi-Z instrument inputs allow you to plug instruments like electric guitar or bass in direct—no external gear required—or, disen

    This is a Great Little Mixer that I use several times a week. I have had one for years and just purchased my second for my newest DJ. I use it for Trivia at bars and for Ceremonies off site from reception areas. Compact and reliable and a wonderful addition to a DJ company. I wish it had XLR outs but other than that, its perfect

    Comments about Mackie 402-VLZ3 4Ch Mixer with 2 XDR MicPres & EQ:

    The essential controls you want and need in a mixing console are now in a unit that can fit in one hand. I have found that I use this unit more and more because it is so compact and I can just throw it in the sidebag of my laptop case. It saves me from having to bring an entire mixing console and or mixer.
