Question about Mackie 1604 Vlz3 16 Channel Mixer

1 Answer

Someone spilt half a pint of lager over my Mackie 1604 Vlz3. The desk operated for an hour after but gave some noise so I switched it off. I cleaned off all the surface fluid but some of the knobs, faders and buttons are sticking. I opened up all the screws on the desk but the board inside is fixed to the front metal side with either allen bolts or rivets, can you confirm which please? How will I open the board away and fix back, and what product will I use to clean it?

These units are not the easiest to open up without damage. The lager has likely evaporated and left behind some residue. Yes the pc board it attached by allen screws. Each control must be removed as well. This unit requires a complete clean with an electronics wash. It is possible that there is some corrosion as well. Please have this cleaned professionally and checked. It is in your best interest in the long run.

I have 1604-Vlz3 mixer recorded on cubase5 best matchable sound card is? I have M-audio delta 1010LT.This not so good sound.after recording. For like "Bollowood Hindi VocaSetting" EQSettings...


The problem is that card has only UNBALANCED inputs. You really need balanced or first run the mixer outputs through a DI backwards. Frankly, I would recommend NOT using a card within the PC as there is so much digital noise. Use either a USB or Firewire external convertor and for goodness sakes use balanced lines from teh Mackie... ALL interconnected equipment needs to be powered from the same receptacle or source. M Audio, Roland/Cakewalk and Presonus all make cards as do others.

Mackie 1604 VLZ3 Issue.


Hi kielhunt
It sounds like power supply issues.
You may have bad capacitors and/or bad regulators.
If you have a multimeter you can get in there and check the dc voltages for ripple(ac voltage mixed with dc) or over/under voltages along the +/- 15volts lines.
Good luck

Hooking up powerd monitors to a Mackie 1604 VLZ3


Are you sending the main mix to the monitors or are you giving them their own mix? What about using the sub groups, use 1 for your monitor send.
