Could this next generation do even better? There was a brief manufacturing period when internal wire links became somewhat undependable, but this issue was resolved quickly and easily on those desks that suffered from it, and the reputation remained untarnished in the minds of most users, myself included. The manufacturers seem proud of the advances made, citing an improved mic preamp design, more refined EQ and improved mix-bus headroom. Although the VLZ Pro models punched well above their weight anyway, these are all areas in which they were, if you were to be really picky, a little weak.

Five full channel strips let you easily get your hands on your mix, while bright segment stereo meters allow for ultra-accurate metering. The dedicated Stereo Return channel lets you connect external components, such as effects units or mp3 players, so you can incorporate your favorite sounds or prerecorded material into your tracks. You also get Hi Z inputs on channels 1 and 2 for recording instruments such as electric guitar and basses direct—no external gear required—and phantom power is provided for your studio condenser mics.

The PFL solo function lets you easily set your gain to perfect levels, and high pass filters allow you to cut low frequency rumble—Hz and below—on channels 1 to 3.

Ultra-compact, sleek, rugged chassis Now you can have your pro mixer, and fit it in your workspace, too. The VLZ3 features a tight, low-profile design that fits the most modest—or congested—of areas perfectly.

Instead of cheap, unsealed potentiometers, we use co-molded pots, which offer substantial strain and impact relief. Finally, we use thick, horizontally mounted fiberglass PC boards to eliminate the potential for damage and brace them with a shock-absorbing support structure.

And not only is the VLZ3 tough, but it can be flexibly positioned, thanks to a bottom panel that lets you easily mount an optional mic stand adapter with just a few screws. Attach your VLZ3 to a mic stand, and you can adjust its height and angle to suit your unique—or weird—work style.

By Paul White Can mixers this small really provide all the preamps and monitor control facilities you need? While large consoles may attract all the longing glances, the reality is that many studios now can do without them, but there remains a very real role for smaller mixers, both live and in the studio. The VLZ3, and its even smaller sibling the VLZ3, feature the same circuit design and tough steel-chassis construction as their larger siblings but have slightly condensed feature sets, and of course fewer input channels. The stereo inputs are normally panned hard left and right, but plugging into the left input only places the mono signal equally in both channels, to give a central image. Because of the size of the mixer, the PSU is in the form of an external adaptor, with a sensible locking connector.
