The Master of Compact Analogue Mixers
Now featuring Mackie's flagship Onyx mic preamps, the comprehensive Mackie VLZ4 line delivers the proven feature set, high-headroom/low-noise design and "Built-Like-A-Tank" construction that created an industry more than 25 years ago.
From every input to every output, VLZ4 is optimized to deliver professional-quality results each and every time.

Incomparable Sound Quality
VLZ (standing for very low noise) mixers are designed to deliver the best quality audio no matter the application you choose to use it for, with 128.5 dB dynamic range. 60 dB gain-range delivers the best quality sound from virtually any microphone. With +22 dBu signal levels, you can be reassured connecting high-output sources without distorting your inputs.
