The delays are just fine, and mackid tap tempo right on the front panel-very handy. Pan that input to the center.

But, they can be routed to the aux sends.

Another really cool and unique feature here enables the sending of auxiliaries five and six to your computer via USB for a “unique stereo recording” as stated in the mixer’s manualbut it’s important to remember that since auxiliaries five and six are fixed in post-fader mode; fader adjustments will change this “unique” recording.

Up to 15 dB of boost or cut is available on each.

Review: Audio Review: Mackie VLZ3 Compact Mixer – Church Production Magazine

Aux sends can be set pre-fader or post-fader. There are three major features that make this mixer stand out: Back to Search Results.

To the far right of the control surface are aux masters, stereo returns, metering, effects controls, and faders for the mixer’s four subgroups. The badly placed headphone jack is among my very short list of cons, which is completely outweighed by a lengthy list of pros. If the processors sound good, that’s two less rack-mounted units I have to lug into the gymnasium. For more information and reproduction guidelines please contact us at or info churchproduction.


This is just one of over 75 professional audio mixers covered in The Mixer Output Guidewhich describes direct outs, inserts, hidden mods and more. Only reverbs, delays, and choruses are available, but that’s a deliberate decision on the part of Mackie.

Each channel strip from features a mm fader, signal routing and solo buttons, a mute button and pan knob. This mixer weighs 31 lbs The compressors are surprisingly transparent, considering their fixed 6: These have 24 and 32 input channels, respectively, and the “04” designation refers to the fact that these are both four-bus mixers.

But some of these are panned hard left and right. It would be nice to have them on more than just four input channels, but the four subgroup compressors are very useful. And certainly having a built-in USB interface not only lightens my load, but also facilitates a really quick turn-around in terms of getting a sermon podcast online.

Inputs have their pad button replaced by the single knob to control the compressors on those channels-specifically, it’s the threshold control. This is powerful-it makes for quick turnaround of podcast uploads, and can also enable quick editing, processing, and burning of CDs for churchgoers.

These same auxiliaries could be used as an effects send to plug-in processors on one’s computer, and I’ve become a big fan of using computers as macjie processors this way-I’ve become spoiled by the quality of convolution reverbs and the like. The that I evaluated isn’t actually a super lightweight device-it does have a bit of heft to it, since it’s largely composed of metal. The mackje difference is whether they are pre- or post-fader.


Unfortunately, inexpensive digital reverbs sound grainy and artificial to my ear, and while the s processors are not great, they’re not bad. Three and four can be switched between pre- and post-fader mode as 2404-vvlz3 pair, and five and six are a bit unique. The two stereo returns can’t be bussed to achieve the same trick as on inputs If the compressors sound good, that’s a few less compressors to add pain to my lower back.

By default, inputs will be hard-panned as left and right stereo pairs. Trick to make them mono panned to the center: Skip to main content.

The one absurd item on the back panel is the headphone jack. The inclusion of these items is gaining popularity with other manufacturers as well, and rightfully so.

A headphone jack on the rear panel? Above that is the mixer’s three-band equalizer, with low shelving 2440-vlz3 at 80 Hz, high shelving at 12 kHz, and mids sweepable between Hz and 8 kHz.

As a pair, they can be toggled between feeding the two internal effects processors or a pair of output jacks for external processing.
