Frankfurt Musikmesse 2011: New Mackie VLZ3 4-Bus Mixers Offer Proven VLZ Technology with Higher Channel Count

Includes integrated FX and USB connectivity.

Mackie today brings two new mid-format analog consoles, each featuring dual internal FX processors, dedicated compression and 4-track recording via USB – the 24-channel 2404-VLZ3 and 32-channel 3204-VLZ3 to Musikmesse. Mackie VLZ3 4-Bus Premium FX Mixers with USB deliver proven, professional sound quality and performance in an ultra-compact and rugged design with the channel count needed for SR applications.

“VLZ is synonymous with high-headroom and low-noise,” remarked John Boudreau, Music Gear Group VP, LOUD Technologies Inc. “We are psyched to bring VLZ3 performance to mixers with higher channel count and real-world live sound tools like effects processing, channel compression and USB connectivity.”

The Mackie 2404-VLZ3 and 3204-VLZ3 feature low-noise, high-headroom XDR2™ mic channels (20 and 28, respectively) and two dedicated channels for stereo inputs. Inline compression is available on each of the four subgroups and on four select channels. Dual 32-bit RMFX™ effects processors offer 16 extremely useable presets, including tap delay. The integrated 4×2 USB interface offers multiple routing options to a DAW, with a convenient stereo return that’s assignable to the mains for background music or into a channel strip for mix integration. With the smallest footprint in their class and legendary Mackie rugged design, VLZ3 4-Bus mixers are perfect for often cramped FOH areas or portable applications.

“Mackie has always been about professional features and performance at prices that are within the reach of the working musician. The new VLZ3 4-Bus mixers are a perfect example of this philosophy in action,” concluded Boudreau.

The Mackie VLZ3 4-Bus Series Premium FX Mixers with USB are available worldwide. The 2404-VLZ3 is £1199 including VAT and €1499 including tax. The 3204-VLZ3 is £1349 including VAT and €1699 including tax. Visit Mackie during Musikmesse from April 6-9, 2011 in Frankfurt, Germany in Halle 4.1, Stand E31.  For more detailed product information, please visit www.mackie.com.
