Bigger not always better
WilliamR 15.06.2014
For the last 14 years I have been using a Mackie CFX12 mixer which fitted every need in my professional entertaining career. I would have been happy with it for the rest of my days in the business but as I looked at ways of reducing the equipment size and weight that I must carry five nights a week to different venues I had to consider downsizing my desk as one of the changes. On scanning specs and reviews of different small mixers I was not surprised to find that the only one which fit the bill was again Mackie. So I ordered a VLZ4 802 from Thomann and was delighted to find that not only was it massively lighter and smaller but the sound from the new preamps was so crisp that it has revitalised my sound. Although I preferred having faders to rotaries for the gain levels on channel and main volume, I have found the rotary knobs detent better into position and remain in place when being handled into and out of the case. This gives me far less set up worries. Also as I need to drive a vocal harmoniser from both my tracks and my guitar, therefore I need a reliable aux out and this one works perfectly. What surprised me most though was the amount of headroom I have from this little desk, absolutely amazing. Well done Mackie!


Versatile compact mixer
Anonymous 30.07.2016
I was looking for a good quality mixer to connect various synths and grooveboxes to a hardware recorder and allow me to send signals to 3 different places - Hardware recorder, FX Loop or direct to the main output.

This is the smallest unit I could find that had 8 channels as well as alternate/cue out, FX loop and stereo return channel. The only other mixers that offer this are much bigger.

Sound quality is great, EQ is powerful and I have no need for cheezy built in FX. The flexible routing of signals makes this a real swiss army knife of audio.

Sometimes its a little confusing trying to get the FX loop and Alt send working together so you always hear FX when you want to, but thats just a setup and practice issue.

Of course there are a few small things that would be nice extras - level control for the Tape In/Out, stereo Aux send - but for the price and size, this is an amazing piece of gear.


Lots of featureas

I needed something to practice on, play with tracks also to act as a preamp for recording. I knew I needed a mixer of some sort but the reason I went for the Mackie 802 was the HI-Z switch and multitude of features.

I really did not want to mess around with a DI box, and good ones tend to be expensive so the Hi-Z switch is invaluable to me. EQ is pretty standard and usable.
It can be called a 2 bus mixer because the mute button sends the channel signal to a pair of separate outputs. This way you can output up to 4 mono tracks out of it.
The headphone amp is very powerful. I drive 250 ohm headphones and I keep the volume at 9:00 o'clock all the time. The power adapter cable is the longest I've ever seen. I like the LED meters on it, they could've put a short meter but they didn't, they put the 12 bar accurate ones.

The first unit that came had an issue, all the channels sounded slightly louder on the left side and I sent it back and got a replacement. The second unit is fine and going strong.


Mackie 802 won't let you down

Well designed and well built from good components. Works always as expected - and sometimes a little better. The 3 mic preamps sound warm and clean (tested mainly with guitar and voice).

Bonus: The routing of the muted channels to "Alt 3-4" output has really expanded the functionality of this mixer for me - sometimes in surprising ways.
