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. But there are some other useful features, too: for example, one thing that's novel in both is that they have three mounting holes in the base to attach an optional mic-stand adaptor, and this makes them particularly convenient for live use. 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.

They have an incredibly wide frequency range, especially in the low end, and even at extremely high gain settings. They offer incredibly low noise, amazing RFI rejection, and with 60dB of available gain per channel, the VLZ3 can handle inputs ranging from a whisper to a scream. We invested tremendous resources into optimizing the center frequencies of our EQs, and improved the interaction of the separate EQ bands, so your tracks can be molded and tweaked for the perfect result.
Small Yet Powerfully Flexible Though small in stature, the VLZ3 provides an incredible abundance of professional features and mission-critical tools to enhance your mixing experience—and your creativity. In addition to essential features like phantom power for your condenser mics, you get a variety of user options that make the VLZ3 a surprisingly versatile mixing machine. Two switchable Hi-Z instrument inputs allow you to plug instruments like electric guitar or bass in direct—no external gear required—or, disengage the switch to connect line level sources such as keyboards, or CD or mp3 players.
Use the high pass filters on channels 1 and 2 to cut the rumble with the touch of a button. Connect line level stereo gear like DJ decks using the assignable stereo RCA input, and either route to your phones for queuing up, or to your main mix for overdubbing while monitoring back from your computer on phones. Flexibly monitor and record mono and stereo sources using the stereo pan function—when the switch is out, a mono source will be split between the left and right of the main mix equally, and when the switch is in, channels 1 and 2 are hard-panned left and right perfect for recording stereo mics.
No matter how you use it, the VLZ3 supplies everything you need to get the job done. Ultra-compact, sleek, rugged chassis Now you can have your pro mixer, and take it with you, too. The VLZ3 features a tight, low-profile design that fits the most modest—or congested—areas perfectly, including your backpack or laptop case.
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.
Applications A-Plenty With its professional features and ultra-compact footprint, the VLZ3 is ideal for a variety of applications, including home studio and on-the-go recording, multimedia projects, field mixing, broadcast use, and post-production work.
