Mackie 1202-VLZ3

I saw this guy selling this mixer second-hand on a forum for audio and I thought…why not. I am looking for a mixer and I like rotary-potentiometer meters because they do last longer and so this was a likely choice. The price being offered was pretty good too. I thought that I should get myself a serious mixer if I am going to get bigger, powered speakers and bigger, powered speakers are on my list of things to get. Specifications-wise:

  • New ultra-low noise VLZ3 design with highest possible headroom
  • 4 studio-grade XDR2™ Extended Dynamic Range mic preamps
  • 12 high-headroom line inputs
  • Advanced DC pulse transformer RF rejection
  • 2 Aux sends, level, pan and PFL solo on each channel
  • 2 stereo Aux returns + EFX to Monitor
  • 3-Band Active EQ (80Hz, 2.5kHz, 12kHz)
  • 18dB/oct. 75Hz Lo-Cut filter on Mic input channels
  • ALT 3/4 stereo bus for added versatility
  • Control Room/Phones source matrix
  • Rack-mountable design using optional rack ears
  • Sealed rotary controls to resist dust and grime
  • New Multi-Voltage power supply for worldwide use
  • Rugged steel chassis

Not too bad at all considering. Only thing I do not like is the fact that it uses 1/4″ TRS-balanced phone jacks for the main output. I would have preferred XLRs but then again, beggars cannot be choosers!
