24-Channel Compact Mixer
The VLZ3 4 Bus takes the world-renowned Mackie 4Bus Series mixers to a whole new level, inluding the addition of improved XDR2™ mic preamps, a redesigned mix bus, and optimized active EQ on every channel. Additionally, USB Recording and Playback, onboard dual RMFX ™ engines and eight individual compressors come standard on every VLZ3 4Bus mixer. The 2404VLZ3 is equipped with 20 mono mic/line channels. It has two stereo channels with 4-band equalization, four group outputs and inserts, and XLR and TRS stereo and mono main outputs and inserts.

Each mono channel has an input Gain control with 60 dB of gain, a sharp 18 dB/octave, 100 Hz Low Cut filter, a 3-band EQ with sweepable mid, six Aux Sends, Pan, Mute, Solo, assign switches, a 60mm fader and a Channel Insert jack for connecting an external processor. Other features include phantom power, mono and stereo monitor outputs, a stereo tape input and output, a 1/4-inch stereo headphone jack, a dedicated talkback XLR jack, stereo 12-segment LED meters, a BNC lamp socket, and six Aux Sends and Inserts. Aux Sends 1-2 are pre-fader. Aux Sends 3-4 have a switch on each channel for selecting pre- or post-fader send, whereas

Aux Sends 5-6 are a fixed post-fader send, perfect for effects loops. Auxes 1-6 have a master level control and all six Auxes are post-EQ. There are four stereo returns with various routing options for each return. The 2404 VLZ3 packs a unique 4x2 USB recording and playback function, 2-Track Return selection, and features two of Mackie’s patented Running Man FX processors (RMFX ™) featuring 24 “gig-ready” effects, the returns of which may be routed into the last two stereo channels for maximum flexibility.
