Solid & Resourceful
The Mackie 802VLZ4 is a tank. Built really well, and extremely well thought out for a such tiny format mixer. The routing options that this little piece has are much appreciated and the sound quality is awesome. Tons of headroom and clean mic pre's. EQ section is not horribly surgical but can be useful in pinch situations (I tend to avoid EQing going in anyways).... the ALT 3-4 option is a big plus. I use it to route the output of a any channel I mute to go back into my MPC1000 for sampling. Makes the process of getting sounds back in a breeze. Only wish I payed for the larger version of this mixer as I need one more stereo channel nowadays... Great mixer - go buy it.
