The Mackie 3204-VLZ4 Mixing Console is a 32-Channel 4-bus FX Mixer with USB. Featuring a suite of quickly accessible and useable reverbs, choruses and delays that make coloring your mix a breeze, the 3204-VLZ4 is the ultimate do-it-all Live Sound Mixer.

The Mackie 3204-VLZ4 Mixing Console is a premium mixing console with two of Mackie's patented Running Man FX processors (RMFX+) featuring 32 "gig- ready" effects right into the board. In pursuit of the ultimate "do-it-all" Live Sound Mixer, Mackie threw in the kitchen sink and packed this bad boy with a full set of processors allowing you to travel "rack free" while still making professional sounding mixes.

Both FX processors feature a tap delay, typically only available on an outboard rack. Delays may easily be sync'd with the song at the tap of a finger. And because Mackie loves flexible routing (hehe), the processed signal may be sent direct to the mains and monitors from the effects section or re-routed to the two stereo channels to bring them through the EQ and aux section, utilizing the 60mm fader to draw them into the mix.

But wait, there's more! The VLZ4 4-Bus has eight (yes, eight!) single knob compressors to stop the dynamic signals from poking out of the mix. Four compressors are located on the last four mic inputs so that the most critical signals (such as vocals, snare drum, the occasional jaw harp or mountain goats) may be addressed. Plus, there are single knob compressors on each of the four subgroups so that grouped signals (such as a drum set or a choir of didgeridoos) may be blended together for paramount smoothness.

The Mackie 3204-VLZ4 4-Bus Mixer also features a 4x2 USB recording and playback function. This means that up to four signals may be recorded simultaneously and a stereo mix returned to the mixer for playback. Bottom line? You have an awesome mixer with VLZ4 sound quality, "built-like-a-tank" build quality and a recording and processing feature set that is unparalleled. Congratulations... and happy mixing.
