Emmanuel Delahaye's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Muscular version of the 402"

Mackie 802-VLZ3
Non rackmount analog mixer.

3 XLR mic input (with switchable phantom power supply globally)
On the first two (1 and 2), input lines (normal / HiZ) with inserts.
On the 3rd (3-4), stereo line input, as well as the 4th and 5th (5-6 and 7-8).
Correctors 3 bands (non-parametric)
Input gain, mute and PFL through.
A (post pre /) Aux (or effect return)
Mixing and general rotary potentiometer.

Main XLR outputs (switchable mic or line level, as a DI) or TRS
Auxiliary mono output with separate return to stereo L / R. (External effect)
Headphone jack with adjustable level, VU meter 12 LED exit 'Control Room' on Jacks (same headphone).

Separated. Food

Please note a curious system that I have not yet experienced.
When the MUTE switch is active, the track is actually redirected to a "alternative output '(3-4) or' sub 3-4 'to a L3/R4 output TRS jack. There are in addition a system of routing twisted enough ... There should be a utility that I have not raised ... I'll see to use.


No problem if using analog consoles are known. Only the use of sub 3-4 is a bit obscure. It should probably read the manual, I will hasten to load on my tablet for the whole doc at hand moving ... (but I recommend experimenting with obscure points quietly home away from panic. ..)


Its very 'right', the Mackie ...

Basic, but effective corrective. A dose carefully ...


I just bought it, but I already have a Mackie 402 VLZ3 and a CFX20 MKII. I sail on familiar ground ...

For the intended use (mini trio sound and mixer stage), there is nothing better for me at the moment. I can plug my 2 strings high impedance sensors, micro voice more and if necessary, 2 HF on line inputs! And use premix stage to get a pair of XLR cables, direct, no need to even DI!

Note that it fits perfectly in a suitcase of 390x230x75 mm (size 2 to 3 promo toolkits pull 'Bricorama') to power.

Mackie 802-VLZ3
8-track console with three XLR mic inputs, 3 inputs Stereo (XLR-Jack, Jack double and 2 times), Tape Input, classic.
Output is more than complete: Main Out on XLRs and Jack; ST Return, Alt return (rfrer to the record, I think it dedicates an output record ) CR Output (l yet I do not know what was used), aux send (to return, adjustable track by Pisa) and Phones output for headphones that goes. In short, it is very complete.
Fantme power.
DI Jack Intgr in tracks 1 and 2. Practice to connect a guitar or bass passive.
trs good equalizer. You turn the knobs, and you can hear the changes immediately. And attention, what changes! we have a large margin of movement, and excellent craftsmanship.
No section of effects against (at the same time, we can not have everything, it is so compact).


To use is really simple and ractif.
If you have any doubts (about Intgr DIs, or the many outputs) the record is very well made, no worries.


Well That's it Ben Mackie, I wanted this brand and I do not t's.
The sound is ultra clean, great prcis. It is a gross state of happiness.
Although sr means no breath, unless you push the main mix to three-quarters of the del. At the same time, the console has to have a t tudie Reserved maximum power and, of course, it is not.


was going to do now a month since I have nothing wrong.
This is one of the most compact consoles and most compltes I have ever seen, really excellent.
I pay 226 new store, I had the choice, 20 prs, between that and the Yamaha with an effects section, but much less compact. My heart swung to Mackie, and I think I will not regret it.
For home, studio, live, it has no default. What you ask for?

Mackie 802-VLZ3
-2 Slices of mono teams Stros insert and 3 (the first tranche of a team is stro pramp and an XLR input plus 're jack so you can use a config 3 slices xlr mono + 2 Stereo jack slices).
St-return and type in

-Main (4 XLRs db / mic jacks or)
-Phone (st jack)
Control room-(jacks)
Alternate-3 / 4 (for selective registration)
Aux send

qualo on each slice, to send, and pan mute/alt3-4
phantom power supply
low cut (3tranches) and impedance switch (2 slices)
mtal compact case


Very clear and comprehensive manual. not replace training but most of his ing;)
I served in a home studio config, couples with a delta audiophile.

slices for mono mic, bass and guitar, a slice stro keyboard, another for the output of the delta and between audiophile st return for the release of my old rotten sound card (a allows me to reserve the right sound card use computer music and thus not having to switch between different software configs each new use ...)
I use the headphone to attack the speakers (2.1 multimedia base, can not afford to pay the heavy dme) and outputs 3 / 4 for entering the sound card.

mute function present on each track can route the signal to outputs 3 / 4 (alt) which are connected to the inputs of the sound card.
so I "mute" tracks that I want and I can record on two channels mono spars (with pan) or stro and have all my sources (keyboard, mic , guitar, bass, sequencer, mediaplayer ...) on one and the same pair of speakers without having to unplug the KJE want to record a different instrument.

I might have to pay a firewire table and so have more 2CH recorded simultaneously but drivers are not alesis available in opensource and mackie onyx firewire is far too expensive. had to start somewhere, this config is perfect for my apartment pti;)


The test consisted of a puor me compare the keyboard forward lesenceintes live or route the console: it's perfection!
no distortion or attenuation. jOperation lentre line before my old card out then the speakers: big slap with the new config.

hummm ... all admit, a little breath if I push the volume of the slice jpense but that has just the cable, since the other tracks are quiet ...
no breath on his hand (when I disconnect the cables in between rotten), even bottom.
I use the no qualo as given that the amplification is very loyal but I test to see and it is very effective.


I have for almost 2 months and wonder how I used to. uh ... it's simple, I did not since the time of any plug in, the inspiration was gone ...
allaluia then!

I hsit good for 2 months before I finally DCID. Berhinger rputes the poorly (at the same time, given the difference in price ...), the soundcraft compact4 apparently suffers from some manufacturing defects (see review right here) and any fawn, with respect to is the routing of the signal, there is no competition in the smaller models.

well, it's a bit expensive compared Berhinger a reputable but given the Mackie, I should not be the.

The report features, unbeatable qualitprix is ​​my opinion because I is not found in equivalent on the market in this price range (config basic home studio is moving towards the multi-firewire but I can not afford).

Basseman3's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Mackie 802-VLZ3
Does everything said before.


Yes, it's simple.
The manual is fun carrment with small grains of humor.


Yes, it introduces the breath (only manufacturing rcentes?)
Even when it is-capable of producing beautiful sounds with the EQ, but the breath Drang.


I bought this as trsrcemment MODEL sr-seen notices about the previous ones VLZ3 MODELS (except may be one of the 1604 VLZ3 PeterCocteau) - not be able to make a bad choice in taking this console.
I was looking for a particular console with super pramplis on mono channels for direct pramplification guitars.
The aim is also to have a silent hiss level largely infrieur that produced my little console Phonic.
And the sad surprise: MODEL I is able to hear the sound of the sea and that of a tropical rain if you push the knobs a bit ... at the same level as the little Phonic. Except that the price is not the same level it.

I do not know if it's because the console is not / no longer manufactured or if the US's history from the ban on lead-containing solder (RoHS), which possible problem a lot of producers of audio hardware, but not the expectations we have towards the brand.

Fortunately, I was able to change in my store and prfr replaceable j'espre the console will do better than this. Reviews to follow.

Résumé anyway, if you want to buy a new console, the opinions can be useful, but insufficient s'avrer: looking for absolutely the board from a seller to it Conna t trs well!
