Mackie have announced two ultra-compact VLZ3s: the 8-channel 802-VLZ3 and the 4-channel 402-VLZ3.
Hereâ€™s what Mackie have to sayâ€¦ â€œThese tight little units are purely proâ€”and pure VLZ3, through and through. With their signature VLZ3 high-headroom, low-noise design and modern summing bus architecture, you always get crystal clear signal, even when you really crank it up. Their ultra-musical EQ provides precise control and optimum sound shaping latitude. And super quiet XDR2 (Extended Dynamic Range) mic preamps deliver studio-grade soundâ€”over a 130dB dynamic rangeâ€”so your signal is clean, from a whisper to a scream. All this is packed into a tight â€œbuilt-like-a-tankâ€� steel chassis that maximizes your workspaceâ€¦and they come at a price that maximizes your budget. As an added bonus, you even get Tracktion 3 Music Production Software to help kick-start your creativity.â€�Pricing and Availability:
