The VLZ Pro is a compact analog desktop mixer with an impressive variety of inputs and outputs to suit your needs. On the main panel you get: Each channel has 2 knobs for controlling Aux effects sends, 3 EQ knobs, a Pan knob, mute and solo switches, and Gain knob.
Additionally, the 4 Mic mackei have a knob for controlling the Trim level. On the right side of the unit is your master controls, which include an Aux master, Aux select, EFX Select, Aux return level knobs, Control room source select switches, Submix gain control, Main Mix Gain control,and stereo graphic lights for monitoring your levels.
On the back of the unit you find: There is no lro for automation, and the knobs are all standard, NO motorized knobs or sync ports here so everything you do to your sound at this stage happens on the Mixer itself.
The mixer is all a nicely weighted metal construction, and the knobs and buttons are all plastic. The whole thing is 1 knob or button per function, which is the best way to go for live mixing if you find yourself needing to make quick on-the-fly edits.
The knobs are color coded so with adequate lighting you don’t have to waste time searching for the correct label. I do find that sometimes the knobs on the EQ feel a little too close together and tiny. I think Mackie did what the could to utilize the space, but if you have big fingers this could pose difficulties nonetheless.
Setup is as easy as plugging in your gear macki and flipping on the power switch. It runs smoothly with no problems.
The manual is sufficient for learning how to use the mixer, and even includes some examples of things you might do with the on-board features. There is a bit of noise added to your sound, especially if you bring up the gain really high, but this is of a level common on all similarly priced analog macie. I find manipulating my sound with this mixer works very well.
The EQ is solid and you can hear the difference when you use it. I almost always turn the EQ off on my digital synthesizers and use this for equalization instead because the sound is so well-rounded. The mixer adds what I can only describe as a warmth and balance to your sound. Not the sort of 12002-vlz you would get using a compressor, something different. When I use macike with multiple instruments, it makes them automatically sound like the belong mackiee a mix together.
This is something you don’t get with most digital mixers, but it’s also something worth paying attention to- it DOES change the character of the instruments you are running through. It is not the most transparent mixer out there.
You can get plenty of volume out of this provided you are using it for an appropriate setup. I have used mine in my studio and in band performances with great success. Another thing Mcakie found useful is that I run the sound of a complete mix through a stereo channel and back into my DAW before bringing it to the mastering stage as 1 stereo track.
It gives the whole project an even 1202-vlx unique character. Honestly it is very hard to see if some of the switches are on or off sometimes. The switches don’t have a large distance they cover between the two options and I find myself having to bend down and check sometimes to make sure one is on or off. This is the only analog mixer I use. Macke father gave it to me, and I don’t think he used it much or knew the potential of its use.

I have tried a few other mixers since getting this one, all in a similar price range, and I don’t think I would ever switch to something else. The VLZ Pro is reliable, compact, and gives you the best sound for your money. Did you find this review helpful? There’s everything you need, even a little more for the price.

These microphones on the other inputs do not produce this breath. Between a lot less gain than the other three. The sound quality and high capacity of absorption of the sound without distortion. The pickups are especially large diaphragm condenser trs performance and versatile but they need a mixer prcise and having a large capacity. Mackie On success this well enough to do this groundwork. Insert the mono channels. The manual is clear enough but you can do without if you have already tasted a console.
Mackie has also proven its expertise. I use it for 3 years.
All user reviews for the Mackie 1202-VLZ Pro
Even if they are absent on thethe console is still respectable. The sound quality can work on serious projects. The table was well thought out, with all the bells and whistles, most of Mackie. It can even give a 1202-vl sound quality to the sound passing through them, the potato in respect of certain instruments with my MP-7, I am filled As for the legendary breath, I have not personally.
And as with any good decision requires good voice preamps, Mackie again provides. I got a sound quality that I would not think to obtain with the XM Behringer. Some may macckie my opinion pro-Mackie but I give an opinion resulting from a comparison with other consoles of the same type of satisfaction that few consoles can provide. It is a small table in mackie analog channels with 4 microphones switchable phantom power supply for all channels and four stereo line level of Jack there are two auxiliaries and a “pre mix” and an entry- output to an external recorder such as by RCA is the master XLR and Jack.
The power supply is internal, and especially, the rotary knobs. Metal shell, very strong including painting! The preamps are pretty clear, and quite a few blows, the eq is quite accurate and efficient but no more, having only three fixed bands is not very lro, but for a console in this category can be not ask too much.
Finally the sound that comes out of this machine is not too bright colored like on other consoles like that, especially at the risk of repeating myself not breathing or nuisance pests, like on other consoles cheaper and widespread. The problem is that the sound that comes out is the sound that goes well with a big kick-eq ppro can be an advantage. I put 7 but it is very subjective. But it works fine. Only after several years of hard loyal service over 4 years has released a track, the horrible crackling microphone preamp!
That said it’s still reliable, much more than Berhinger which you have the fader in the fingers after three months of use. I did not pay but I know it’s worth the price but no more.
Warranty & Support
Since I switched to digital Yamaha 01V96 is more expensive but more convenient. I recommend this console to those who want not “break the head” with big apareils but want good sound, for people who want opportunities for mixing larger is better to invest in bigger.
Mixer 8 tracks trs well think: The three qualiseur bandwidth allows fast calibration for each track. The inputs and outputs are well positioned: The VLZ Systm low impdance makes almost no prro you really have any background or to abuse the qualiseur. If we do not do things trs particulires, the record remains in the Tagrera.
A really gniale and practice, the MUTE tracks referring to an output cuts rather than cutting btement. What was the point? If you are like me an expander or gnrateur effects? That between one mzckie add effects, the mixer will allow you to send multiple tracks simultaneously on this between and you can handle and these tracks with the same effect. In short, macie use, this mixer is really well done. The manual is well organized: That said, for novices mix, there are functions that are not easy to understand my 1202-flz mixer.
