YOU GET MORE FROM A MACKIE

Mackie 1202 Mixer
Mackie Designs' 1202 mixer offer supreme flexibility, and the same standard of design and construction that distinguished the 1604. Dave Lockwood finds proof that the best things come in small packages.

12-channel general-purpose compact mixer

Reviewed in SOS March '92/Recording Musician September '92

An ultra-compact 12-channel mic/line mixer designed and built to high standards. Rotary controls are used in place of channel faders, to save space, and another space-saving measure is the inclusion of four stereo channels. Only the first four inputs include mic amps and gain trims; the remaining four channels have stereo, line-only inputs.

The 1202 offers two post-fade auxiliaries, primarily for effects-send usage (though the sends on the first four channels can be internally modified to pre-fade operation for foldback applications). A simple 2-band, shelving EQ (+/-15dB at 80Hz and 12kHz) is provided on all channels, and insert points are fitted to the first four mic channels; phantom power is globally switchable.

The 1202 has no PFL or Solo facility, but there is a switch to flip the metering to read input rather than output levels. There are also two stereo effects returns.

Despite its diminutive appearance, the 1202 is a supremely versatile little mixer -- there are enough inputs for keyboard sub-mixing, plenty of output level to drive power amps for PA usage, and sufficient quality in the mic amps for serious recording work. You could even, with a little ingenuity, use one at the heart of a small 8-track recording setup. Quite apart from its surprising flexibility and usefulness, the 1202 is economically priced, ruggedly built, and has an excellent audio spec.
