Mackie 1604 VLZ Pro 16 Channel Mixing Console

Write a user review. Our members also liked: Sort by most recent most useful. The manual is great IF you should need it. It is a full four buss mixer so you have sub-mix capabilities of sending to four discreet locations which is plenty for a modest home studio. Bur wait, there are also up to six aux outs which can act as sub outputs as well for a total of ten discreet outs.

If you have a larger system, you have access to direct outs for channels on through eight this makes a great direct hook up for live recording, such as to Pro Tools by Digidesign which has eight ins. The coolest way to hook this up is to run the eight sub outs into an analog to digital converter, such as the Behringer ADAwhich will give you eight digital outs via ADAT light pipe and then use four assignable subs and four aux sends to feed the analog input of the Digidesign interface DigiDigi or Digi which gives you an unbelievable 16 inputs and still leaves you two aux sends for effects and the main stereo buss out for control room monitors.

There are a couple extra outputs like a mono out that can be used to feed a fold back system for the vocalist. The one minor drawback is that the faders are only sixty millimeters instead of the industry standard one hundred millimeters.

Did you find this review helpful? Well I work as a media specialist in Toronto so I got it for free for my birthday because the guys know i what one.

So yah i paid nothing. The manual is very clear and gives many examples of use missing, however the console coupling, but it is very simple with 2 among STREO While not pass SUB, which is somewhat surprising departure. But it is well explained in the manual. For example, for a basic operation: Note the presence of an output STREO mix supplmentaire Utility with indpendant level rglage but taken after the main mix for sound to another room or the back of the room etc.

Net and are right, no coloring, vl breath if we know rgler its levels The equalizer output is a little gadget, but it can help in simple cases Absolutely nothing wrong, except that I want another one for 32 channels on hand!

I appreciates the sound quality, the precision of rglages, 2 among stro that allow me extension, SUB output for subwoofer Too old to move to digital Analog mixer rack Rotopod sold separately. A lamp 12v A true Swiss Army knife: Pity that the volume makie is on the rear face. Otherwise everything is artfully arranged. The download in French if doubts: Always have the mimic head to optimize its use. On the forums, I read a lot of problem of breath.


I’m not, I certainly raise the chance.

Specifies that I want is a second hand. Practical and effective for patching. Pre-Amp button on each slice is used as por convenience. A 75Hz low cut on each slice. I use not Pre-Amps. So I give no opinion deu. I find it flexible and effective. It is very compact for kackie channels and well rested.

The sliders race is a little short at first glance, but their precision blades that default. I would advise buying mackiie you really test everything because other forums and leave a review srieux doubt. The bus system is still interesting for the registration night, it can send a strong signal on your tape recorder, while having a different volume on the master.

Despite racing 60mm faders, their movement can be smooth, they offer a slight resistance avoiding the jumps when they are moving slowly. Moreover, all the knobs on this console have a slight resistance to movement. She will be able to receive all kind of sound, with a result good enough to claim the final draft over mix, be it in home or studio setup small musical scenes.

USE The manual is clear but not essential because the console is easy to use: The Pramp nackie good: The price quality ratio is not bad it is a good console to record 8 tracks or to go live in 16 tracks. I just regret the lack of a mackke XLR. She has also a reputation to match its performance I like the console Yes see characteristics manufacturer USE Easy, good qualities, and contrary to the opinion prcdent with pre-amps slightly superiors that new sries I compar I have a new – 16 votes, direct outputs cannal!

The console is by adding back rack ears provided with. The upper block mackif the console, or is all the connections can be set to dissociate themselves in different ways.

By setting the block on the back of the console, it saves the units when the v,z rack. There are 16 single units with panoramic parametric equalizer, gain control, mute, solo and 6 auxiliary sends. A button “low cut” below the low setting potentiometer is used to cut the infra low the difference is really obvious. In addition to the faders are the buttons on bus route to the 4 “sub” or directly to the stereo master output “main mix”.

The console has a 48 volt power supply.

Meanwhile compact leaves little room for fingers between the various switches and potentiometer but the fact that it gives him the ability to be rack is quickly forget this more or less annoying. For me, mine is in a rack with my expander and effects, it is a good space saving and is convenient in its use. The switch to turn on the console and the 48 volt power supply located on the back side with the connectivity and rack when it’s really not very practical Memory the manual was pretty clear, although in English.


SOUNDS I’m not an engineer and I’m not trained to listen very much precision, but for having had the opportunity to try and listen to other consoles I’ve always preferred the sound of the Mackie. There really is a very good preamp which provides an excellent listening and dynamics, the “big” sound as some would say.

The parametric EQ is really effective when you turn the knob means and notament real difference in the mackiie that have made an excellent especially in the lower frequencies.

The switch “low cut” removes the sub bass. May be a vpz trainer must Suffle and if so I’ve never paid attention. This is one of the charms of the analog and for those looking for a sound console of this type will satisfy the Mackie pleinenement. I really like the insert general “main insert” that allows you to connect a dynamics processor to handle all of the console. To the downside, if there really negative aspect, the switch and phantom power on the back which is not practical rack and can be the eternal lack of voice, but 16 votes rack c ‘ is already pretty good I bought it new and at the 6104 she was around for francs.

I did it revise once there it 3 or 4 years. He just had to change the volume control of the “control room” and the technician told me that apart from that it is in pr condition. I have a hard time separating myself today, and if I had to buy a console of this type I will take this model without hesitation.

Good for me it’s been six years since I. The master left who does not work anymore It’s a good console, but hey, let’s just say that it is effective for the routing of a config 8pistes direkt to analog disk She plays the role of prampli, has not the same, a relatively large crosstalk between tracks.?

It will be very effective in you home studio, but completely Exceeds for sound Does not have XLR outputs, prepare your interfaces I think the mackie ptite has little future before it. However in a fixed config like mine, it holds the road Rackable 19” 16 mono tracks between line, insert, mic.

Output and return types in the CAR. I do not pass a finger between two faders, the switch or there is the sub group. Trs Sounds good, some reproaches from his cot cold marks English Personally I had a spirit folio, and has nothing less than breath and the equalizer is the mackie efficace. Personnellement I prefer by far. Compared to a phonic ok c TFWP not comparableand although it is not really comparable lolthe Mackie has a dynamic sound, the non-phonic Dj the bass response is good, powerful dynamics and not “soften”.

The knob for adjusting the frequency of the medium is effective trs. Even when it has a certain age purchased used but no crash, no knob in poor condition, everything works without any problems.
