Mackie SR 24.4 VLZ
(Originally written by jf.rondeau/translated from Audiofanzine FR)


UTILIZATION

Easy and intuitive use. Clear, comprehensive and funny user's manual.

SOUNDS

Very clear sound (I'm surprised by some previous reviews). High dynamic range. Great-sounding preamps with high headroom. The EQ does what you expect from it (not less, not more).

OVERALL OPINION

I've been using it several years for live gigs and recording sessions. It always performed alright. Ever since I bought it mine has had a broken condenser (one channel is faulty) but it's the only problem I've had.

Mackie SR 24.4 VLZ
Already seen in previous opinions.
No attenuation pad which can be annoying depending on the source or the microphone used.

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use. All functions come to hand. Thank you to color code!
Not need the manual as long as one knows what kind of console but he is very well done.

SOUNDS

Not having used only live (that's why it was designed) I can not really comment on its transparency or breath.
I am satisfied with the headroom and Eq that can highlight any source without distorting the signal.
It has a good momentum, we can get stronger, get stronger without audible distortion, so you have to pay attention to face amp that can "clip" faster than the console.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since 2009, exclusively live without having tested many other consoles in this price range. I would say that this is a great tool to start without breaking the bank. Preamp very correct, Eq effective, 6 For to manage back stage and effects.
He sometimes missed attenuation pad but you can not have everything.
I like the "air" on the sub groups of voices or Grat acoustics it can be handy.

In short, bought for a good price, I am very happy with this console.

mr pierre's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Really great, this machine!"

Mackie SR 24.4 VLZ
Yes, I think it can be rack, whatever it takes it "breathes" as it "hot" and needs a little venting!
24 channels, no effects section, no automation .. but what a pleasure to manipulate the faders and pots ..!

UTILIZATION

Everything is simple, clear and accessible!
the manual is very well designed, in French, with a touch of humor ..!

SOUNDS

Ah yes! Very clear, natural and pleasant, airy and clear!
Equalizer effective as desired, but without the rush violently as sensitive!
But who's complaining!
As for the breath, there are a few, but very vintage and discreet! (Especially with the treble, it's normal!)
on the other hand, I recommend to add to it the digital multi-effects to the slices, because there .. reverbs are suppliers of breath!
Attention to that!

OVERALL OPINION

since December 2000 that I use, no special concern.
Before, I was his little sister (12 channels), and that's it!
What I love most: the heat of its natural range and its full extent ...
The least .. besides the breath of muli-effects I had (Lexicon because I sold them because of that ..), not much to say negative!
Price / quality ratio: it seemed good .. and this is confirmed in time, since no problems running only appeared on the table! Compare with digital, and see if they take the road for 11 years without problems ..! In addition, the cold one offered by the digital .. no thank you!
So I remake that choice without hesitation! In any case, an analog Mackie, for sure!

Everything is already said in regards to ...

UTILIZATION

Everything is clear and intuitive. The manual is clear and comprehensive and more fun

SOUNDS

The sound is very clean (I am surprised by some reviews posted earlier, a good dynamic. Preamps top (it sends them full of cum and it does not move). The equalizer makes its taf just what he request (no more, no less)

OVERALL OPINION

I années.Des for several concerts and recordings in the legs, it has never failed. Mine has a capacitor in the bag (in short, a piece that no longer works) since the beginning (probably because a failure of the capacitor has no other problem)

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

Mackie SR 24.4 VLZ
20 mono channels + 2 channel stereo
6 AUX (two pre, two in pre and post, two in post)
4 Returns AUX stereo
1 insert per
3-band EQ with a single SEMI-parametric
4 buses

missing my taste PAD (with some drummers and some microphones is essential)
and DIRECT OUT per

USE

Using all that normal to y. if we know everything is a hand door

SONORITS

For breath is correct, has never had to complain
for her it is very average against by:
The preamps are pretty neutral but a little cardboard, eq are rude (with one SEMI-parametric forcment it go away ...)
it is not very transparent and grain it adds not really like me ...

NOTICE GLOBAL

I have it for 5 years

I prefer:
-the solidity undoubtedly !!
she made tons of concerts and has never BRONCH !! (And is not flye!)
-the mono output (useful for small config, no need to waste a group or auxiliary)

what I like least:
-no Pad or out live AC would be good practice, but at this price ...
-The sound: tres "cardboard" the equalos are really great, they tend to twist the original signal. I will try out the new ONYX, with new eq (especially 2 parametric bands !!)

qualitprix the report is honest, at this price (600 occas) there is not much in 24 runs with 6 to ...

but frankly if I had to do it again if I had the money I'll take something else (but if I have 600 euros I think I repeat)
