Thankfully, the 3204VLZ4 boasts sealed rotary controls that resist grime, dust, and anything else that may spill onto your mixer. We’re not saying it’s fully waterproof, but it’s an extra level of protection you’ll eventually be very glad you have when you’re running live sound in a hectic environment.
Incredible sound quality
VLZ stands for “very low noise”, and that’s just part of the appeal of the Mackie 3204VLZ4 mixer. In all you’ve got a 128.5dB dynamic range, making it easy to achieve full, punchy mixes. The Onyx mic preamps have a 60dB gain range, so you can get the best out of virtually any microphone. And because the 3204VLZ4’s line inputs handle +22 dBu signal levels, you can connect high-output sound sources without worrying about distorting your inputs.
Built-in 32-bit RMFX+ Effects
The Mackie 3204VLZ4 mixer packs 32-bit RMFX+ effects processing, and you can use Aux 5 and Aux 6 on any channel to easily route it to the effects. From spacious reverbs and epic delays to rich chorus and other ear candy, you’ve got the tools you need to add that extra polish to your sound.
Easy recording with built-in 24-bit USB audio interface
Just connect your laptop to the Mackie 3204VLZ4 via USB and you’ll be able to record your show with a minimum of fuss. Stream up to four subgroups or the master L/R mix to your computer for recording. You can even use your favorite plug-ins as live processors via Auxes 5/6! You can also return a stereo signal from your computer to the board for playback, or even to a mixer channel to use EQ and monitoring sends. The point is, the Mackie 3204VLZ4 gives you more options than you’ve ever had with a VLZ mixer.
