Mackie is a Proven Leader in Analog Mixers

Beyond sounding great, the Mackie 3204VLZ4 mixer is one piece of gear you can truly rely on. It continues the VLZ Series' trend for rock-solid construction, while taking your sound quality to a new level. You've got an amazingly wide dynamic range, incredible 60dB gain range on the Onyx microphone preamplifiers, and ultra-low-noise performance. The 3204VLZ4 also boasts effects DSP with two internal FX sends, and even a 4 x 2, 24-bit USB audio interface for easy, high-quality recording. And with high-resolution meters, generous I/O, and sealed rotary controls that keep out dust and grime, the Mackie 3204VLZ4 is one of Mackie's best mixers ever.

Mackie 3204VLZ4 32-channel Mixer at a Glance:
  • Premium-quality mixer with proven components
  • Sealed rotary controls ensure long-term reliability
  • Incredible sound quality
  • Built-in 32-bit RMFX+ Effects

Premium-quality mixer with proven components

The Mackie 3204VLZ4 is, first and foremost, a Mackie mixer. It houses 28 of Mackie's premium-quality Onyx mic preamps for natural, transparent sound. Its mic/line channels are equipped with 3-band EQ with sweepable mids. Signal routing is easy and flexible. On top of all that, the Mackie 3204VLZ4 is built Mackie-tough - trust this mixer to perform even in the most harrowing situations.

Sealed rotary controls ensure long-term reliability

Sure, the Mackie 3204VLZ4 mixer will shrug off bumps, drops, and outright abuse, but what about spills or rain? Thankfully, the 3204VLZ4 boasts sealed rotary controls that resist grime, dust, and anything else that may spill onto your mixer. We're not saying it's fully waterproof, but it's an extra level of protection you'll eventually be very glad you have when you're running live sound in a hectic environment.

Incredible sound quality

VLZ stands for "very low noise", and that's just part of the appeal of the Mackie 3204VLZ4 mixer. In all you've got a 128.5dB dynamic range, making it easy to achieve full, punchy mixes. The Onyx mic preamps have a 60dB gain range, so you can get the best out of virtually any microphone. And because the 3204VLZ4's line inputs handle +22 dBu signal levels, you can connect high-output sound sources without worrying about distorting your inputs.

Built-in 32-bit RMFX+ Effects

The Mackie 3204VLZ4 mixer packs 32-bit RMFX+ effects processing, and you can use Aux 5 and Aux 6 on any channel to easily route it to the effects. From spacious reverbs and epic delays to rich chorus and other ear candy, you've got the tools you need to add that extra polish to your sound.

Easy recording with built-in 24-bit USB audio interface

Just connect your laptop to the Mackie 3204VLZ4 via USB and you'll be able to record your show with a minimum of fuss. Stream up to four subgroups or the master L/R mix to your computer for recording. You can even use your favorite plug-ins as live processors via Auxes 5/6! You can also return a stereo signal from your computer to the board for playback, or even to a mixer channel to use EQ and monitoring sends. The point is, the Mackie 3204VLZ4 gives you more options than you've ever had with a VLZ mixer.

Mackie 3204VLZ4 24-channel Mixer Features:
  • Amazingly rugged analog mixer with 28 microphone preamplifiers
  • Onyx mic preamps offer up to 60dB of gain for great performance with any mic
  • Ultra-low-noise performance gives you clean, clear sound

Worth every penny!!!

Our band picked this up to replace my Allen & Health Zed 24 which has been less than reliable (sorry to say). We've used the Mackie on four gigs now (we play every weekend) and it has been flawless. The AUX sends work great for the monitor mixes. Preamps are very versatile with a good range whether running mic/line, guitar synth, acoustic, drums, vocals, etc. Having all the jacks on the rear makes set-up nice and easy. If I ever get back into recording again, and go the analog route, I would buy this mixer without any reservations. Well worth the cash!

Great mixer

Great board for our worship setting. Lots of options for routing of mains, headphones, monitors, and recording. Like the usb port.
