Looking for a reliable and road-ready mixer? Consider the Mackie 1642-VLZ3! The Mackie 1642-VLZ3 16-Channel 4-Bus Compact Mixer continues the legacy of the best-selling 1642-VLZ Pro. Perfectly suited for line-level devices such as keyboards and drum machines, the 4 stereo pairs input channels feature four-band fixed EQ, while the mono channels utilize Mackie's proprietary three-band Active EQ, with sweepable midrange. Ten new XDR2 second-generation mic preamps, along with completely redesigned mix bus circuitry, give the Macie 1642-VLZ3 its low-noise, high-headroom functionality and superior sound. The new universal 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 Mackie 1642-VLZ3 Premium Compact Mixer is equally at home on the stage, or in the studio. The Mackie 1642-VLZ3 mixer features three types of input channels. Channels 1-8 offer mono line-level and ultra-low noise XDR2 mic preamps. Channels 9/10 and 11/12 on two channel strips offer stereo pairs of line-level inputs and a mono XDR2 mic preamp. Channels 13/14 and 15/16 on two channel strips provide stero line-level pairs with fixed 4-band EQ at frequencies optimized for keyboards, sound modules etc. Channels 1-8 feature the same 3-band active EQ with optimized center points, the lows at 80Hz and the highs at 12kHz. Midrange EQ is handled by a peaking control with a two-octave variable frequency center, meaning mids can be swept from 100Hz up to 8kHz, with a boost or cut of 15dB. For ultimate tone-shaping, Mackie designed a fixed 4-band musically-correct EQ for the remaining channels, intended for line-level signals like keyboards, sound modules, and drum machines. Other features of the Mackie 1642-VLZ3 mixer include 75Hz Low-Cut filters, four aux sends, inserts, phantom power for condenser microphones, constant-loudness pan controls, overload and signal present LEDs, sub and main mix assign switches, and an assignable AFL/PFL solo switch for ultimate control. A range of output options make the Mackie 1642-VLZ3 mixer suitable for any application with its control room / phones source matrix, master aux section with EFX to monitor, tape outputs, a high-volume headphone amplifier, channels 1-8 direct outs, and balanced XLR and balanced / unbalanced TRS outputs. Professionals world-wide choose Mackie mixers for their road-proven, time-tested design. The Mackie 1642-VLZ3 mixer features Mackie quality and is designed to take some serious abuse, yet keep on working.

Thick, horizontally mounted fiberglass PC boards add to the Mackie 1642-VLZ3 mixer's solid construction, giving it a shock-absorbing support structure that's truly built to last.
