Keeping all the features and functionality of its predecessor, the VLZ Pro, the 1202-VLZ3 offers even more. Greater headroom, redesigned Mix Bus and tweaked EQs make for a highly intuitive mixer with a musical feel.

The second-generation XDR2 mic preamps on the 1202-VLZ3 are better than ever, offering incredibly low noise.

Mackie have optimised the centre frequencies of their 3-band active EQs. By selecting 80Hz, 2.5kHz and 12kHz for the Lows, Mids and Highs, the result is an even more musical EQ than previous VLZ models. With up to 15dB boost/cut capacity per band, VLZ3's Active EQ provides more tone-sculpting latitude than any other mixer in its class.

The 1202-VLZ3 is packed with premium features on every mic channel including two aux sends, inserts, phantom power, constant-loudness pan controls and pre-fader solo. Mackie spoils you for choice of outputs with a control room/phones source matrix, master aux sections with EFX to monitor, tape outputs, a high-volume headphone amplifier and balanced XLR and TRS outputs.

Mackie's legendary solid-steel chassis means you can really put this mixer through its paces. Tough, versatile and innovative, the 1202-VLZ3 is a fine-tuned, perfected version of the best mixer in its class.
