Mackie 1202 VLZ

Mackie's 12 into 2 compact mixer.. You can be stand-alone table-top or rack-mount this unit with optional rack-mounting kit, (which costs extra)...

You get a total of 8 channel strips... set out as 4 mic/line inputs with inserts and a lo-cut filter, and 4 stereo line channels - making 4 mono + 4 stereo = 12 physical channels - hence the 1202......

It's a very widespread mixer... loads and loads of them around, so a good s/h buy for the small low budget project studio, but it'll function in any setup really as long as the facilities it provides are enuff...

The 1202 has pot's to trim the channel output to masters as opposed to faders... Not such a huge deal, especially as mostly this unit would be used to collectivise/blend outboard midi-kit into a sytereo mix and for routing and recording to various sources... In that instance, mixing is most likely to be done in an automated fashion with controllers and pc audio automated-mixing... I don't think not having faders is such a big killer here... after all, it's not a sit down big remix mixer is it... Here's some spec' blurb...

Great first mixer! Great for a small set and live applications. The preamps are fantastic (for this price range) and it is built solid. It's your typical Mackie product, quietly (!!!!!) does it's job exceptionally well. The unit is very quiet. Too bad it has knobs instead of faders, but that's just not part of the deal.
