Great Mixer

By Skip-6Gsdd

from Georgia

Just a step below the 1604 but if you don't need 16 mic pre's why pay the extra 150 bucks. THis is a great mixer for the money and a standard in the industry.

Awesome Piece of Equipment

Great mixer for the beginning to expert engineer. You can never have too many channels and the 1642 is sufficient for just about every recording situation. Also, Mackie's XDR Preamps are amazingly clear. Trust me on this! (I've worked with many different mixers.)


learn how to use it beforehand

I got this mixer from work where they used it to do live acting shows. well apparently they don't know squat about mixers because on the channels they had used the mics the levels were raised way too high and this ruined the channel. But half of them still work and so far have been happy with it. very sturdy knobs and just well built. works great for small bands. I had a Behringer before it worked and all but the preamps were somewhat noisy.

Where would I have ever been without my Mackie?The answer is simple: No where.When I first started using professional equipment back in 1993 a friend of mine suggested that I bite the bullet and buy a Mackie board. As it turns out, it was the best advice I ever had.The problem with most equipment of this type is that you can quickly out grow a mixer that has fewer features. Once you understand how to use them you always want more... and the good people who created this equipment understood this. So it's worth the extra money to get a board you can grow with that's going to produce the kind of professional results you crave. This is where Mackie shines. The design is rock solid and packed with the extra features that make mixing in the "real world" a breeze. You'll love the fact that you can hook so much to it and not pay a huge penalty in noise due to lack of headroom or feel limited because you've had to constantly re-patch different outboard devices. The good news is it is simple to operate (Don?t let all the buttons throw you!) And will take the kind of beating year after year that will send lesser machines to the dumpster.I own three; a 1202 VLZ, a 1604 and a CFX12 and of them work perfectly. My 1604, for example, is now celebrating its 10th. Birthday in my home studio where I put together my demo's, the CFX12 manages my karaoke system and the 1202VLZ does everything from studio to live work when I don't need the heavy stuff. And all of them work just as well as the day it came out of their boxes.

Not bad...but...

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I've had a few channels go intermittently bad on me. But overall, good mixer for the price.
