MACKIE

Sure it’s cute, but the Mackie 1202-VLZ3 is a serious professional compact mixer, with features that belie its small footprint. The ideal compact mixer for home and project studios, the 1202-VLZ3 is equally at home on the road, on the stage, or in the recording studio. Here at Mackie, we can never leave “well enough” alone. After all, the VLZ Pros are the best-selling mixers of all time, so we knew it would be tough to improve on what many devoted owners already consider perfection… and yet we were driven to do it anyway. While it keeps all the features and functionality of its predecessor, the Mackie 1202-VLZ3 offers even greater headroom versus the original. We could have stopped right then and there, but we’re obsessed with perfection. So we redesigned the Mix Bus, tweaked the EQs, and created a mixer with a highly intuitive, musical feel.

VASTLY SUPERIOR XDR2™ MIC PREAMPS

Our new XDR2 (Extended Dynamic Range) second-generation mic preamps are better than ever. These new pres offer incredibly low noise, with individual mic pre THD below 0.0007%, and overall mixer THD less than 0.0025%. With 60dB of available gain per channel, the 1202-VLZ3 can handle inputs ranging from a whisper to a scream, and can even handle hot line-level signals up to +22db, without any added coloration. You simply won't find preamps this good on any other mixer in this price range.



EQUALIZATION

We invested tremendous resources optimizing the center frequencies of our 3-band Active EQs. By selecting 80Hz, 2.5kHz and 12kHz, for the Lows, Mids and Highs, respectively, we created an even more musical EQ than on previous VLZs. With up to 15dB boost/cut capability per band, VLZ3's Active EQ provides more tone-sculpting latitude than any other mixer in its class.



PROFESSIONAL FEATURES

The Mackie 1202-VLZ3 is packed with premium features on every mic channel: 75Hz Low-Cut filters, two Aux Sends, inserts, phantom power, constant-loudness Pan controls and Pre Fader Solo. And since you can never have too many output options, we provided a Control Room/Phones source matrix, Master Aux section with EFX to Monitor, tape outputs, a high-volume headphone amplifier and balanced XLR and TRS outputs.



NEED EVEN MORE FLEXIBILITY?

Greg Mackie's mind was working overtime when he originally came up with this—instead of sending muted signals into the vacuum of space, why not do something useful with them? So, when you press the mute button on the 1202-VLZ3, the signal is indeed muted—but it also appears at the ALT 3-4 output jacks and ALT 3-4 stereo bus. This is an ideal way to create additional Aux Sends and mixes for cry rooms, green rooms, or assistive listening, etc. And with a press of a button, the ALT 3-4 mix can be assigned to the Main output—which means ALT 3-4 can act very much like a mixer within a mixer.



BUILT MACKIE TOUGH

All VLZ3 mixers are built tough-as-a-tank. Our legendary solid-steel chassis can take the kind of abuse that would turn our competitors' flimsy boxes into twisted chunks of debris. Instead of cheap, unsealed potentiometers, we use co-molded pots, which offer substantial strain and impact relief. By design, our control knobs "ride" just above the surface of the chassis, so if something falls onto the mixer, the impact is transferred from the knobs to the chassis—not to the potentiometers or circuit board. Finally, we use thick, horizontally mounted fiberglass PC boards to eliminate the potential for damage and brace them with a shock-absorbing support structure. They've survived earthquakes, hurricanes and typhoons, so Mackie mixers can certainly handle whatever you throw at them.



VERSATILITY

You'll find Mackie mixers everywhere you go—from video post-production facilities, to major artist tour buses, to duty as field mixers for news departments of all the major networks. Drummers and keyboardists use them to send submixes to front of house and monitor consoles. VLZ3 compact mixers are the ideal choice for any situation requiring superior audio mixing, especially where space and/or budget constraints are an issue.



Leave it to the innovative minds at Mackie to produce the 1202-VLZ3, an even perfecter version of the best-sounding mixer in its class.
