The 1604-VLZ PRO is the latest update of our CR1604-VLZ, incorporating our new ultra-high quality XDR™ (Extended Dynamic Range) mic preamps with the best RFI rejection of any compact mixer design on the market and maximum freedom from ground loops.
Like all Mackie mixers, the 1604-VLZ PRO is designed for rugged, 24-hour-a-day use. It is a supremely ﬂ exible mixer, not just because of its multiple input/output conﬁ gurations, but because of its true 4-bus architecture, 6 aux sends (with 3-4/5-6 shift switch), and extensive routing capabilities.
No matter what the application, the 1604-VLZ PRO can be conﬁgured for optimal use. As a tabletop mixer, input/output jacks can be positioned at the rear of the unit, or with the optional RotoPod Kit (RP1604-VLZ), positioned on the same plane as the controls. Placed in a rack system, the 1604-VLZ PRO can be set so that jacks are facing front (using the RotoPod kit) or facing the rear to keep wandering hands from playing with cords. Whether used in a permanent installation, or as a portable mixer, the 1604-VLZ PRO is completely at home.
Built like a tank, the 1604-VLZ PRO is a team player that can stand up to vigorous use, day in and day out, any place it is installed.
