Mackie 1604 VLZ4

16-Channel MixerThe legendary 1604VLZ4 compact mixer now combines the renowned Onyx preamps and with the high signal-to-noise ratio, for which Mackie has been known for a long time. All 16 channels provide Onyx preamps, line inputs and inserts in a compact 4-bus design for professional application in different fields. Moreover the 1604VLZ4 impresses with its solid design as well as with a high contrast coloring of the ergonomic surface, enabling simple and intuitive handling.

Reliable quality

Thorsten A., 20.08.2015
The new version of the motherboard of all 19 "mixers promises what the legendary model promises. In the newly designed fader caps, I was initially skeptical, but I decided to buy it, because if necessary they would be against" classic "fader caps The advantage of the new caps is that the white center line of the fader cap can be matched with the scale on the mixing console surface, even if the view falls obliquely from the front to the mixing console (like The disadvantage is that the aesthetic appearance (and therefore the eye of the beholder) is not, however, in the haptic, as is feared The narrowing of the spring cap but through the vertical trough and the usual wide support slots at the top and bottom of the cap, this is surprisingly not a problem after a short familiarization. In the technical data, the sound changes to the predecessor seem to be only marginal. There is nothing to complain about, even if some competitors now seem to have practically opened up. The mechanical quality is still superior.

Good polyvalebnte console

14.06.2016
The console is in 19 "format, so practical for" nomad "applications, and that's not bad, it will just need a rack deep enough (55cm), because for the time it does not fit deep into my rack 6U ....

Level connectics we have I believe the best possibilities in this price range:
- direct out outs, inserts, in one on the master, 4 sub-groups, 6 auxiliary outputs, and the famous dedicated auxiliary returns, which do not "puff" mono tracks for effect returns!

The returns to, there is hardly that Mackie who does that ....
The 6 postings can be Post fader

The solo mode is very practical (possibility to control the volume of each track (pre or post fader) before sending out ...
The pre Onyx I have never tested (no microphones)
Small more is the 12V output to connect a Led light!

The buttons are hardly close to each other, but good, with 16 tracks and 4 subgroups under 19 ", hard to do better!
EQs are accurate, nice knobs, semi parametric on the medium is really a plus.
The fader run is only 60mm, and I find them a little cheap ...
The metal case on the other hand does not cheap!
No outlet noise at nominal level.

It is for me a good console with a lot of possibilities as much for the live with its auxiliaries, or to sound a little concert with its subgroups and its multiple inputs, or for recording with its direct outputs ....


I have hesitated a long time with others, but the Mackie is by far the most complete, except that it does not have USB input / output like some Allen or SCraft, which can put off some.
