A mixing desk forms a central component of your audio system. Allen & Heath audio mixers deliver exceptional sound quality and a range of input and output options.
Allen & Heath have given the ZED16FX a CD quality USB Audio interface that can either record the mix to a computer or playback media from PC.
This is useful for playing stage show sound cues, plus all the "must have" features that you expect from medium sized live sound mixing consoles.
The ZEDFX16 usb mixer has 10 XLR mic inputs with phantom power for condenser mics. It also has a good level of gain on the input channels.
Decent tone controls allow you to adjust the incoming signal as required.
Mute and pre-fade listen on each input channel help the sound engineer during setup.
Auxiliary outputs are provided for feeding things like stage monitor mixes.
Long faders provide smooth control.
With 16 built in sound effects including reverb, plate, echo and chorus there is no need for small groups to carry around extra special effects processors. You can easily set the precise amount of reverb for lead vocals.
Connectors for all the audio signals are easily accessible on the front of the mixer, so you don't have to reach behind the mixer when checking which leads are plugged in.
The mixer provides each mic channel with +48v phantom power. This means it can be used with any microphone including professional condenser mics.
This pa mixer does not have sub groups, just the channels feeding the main outputs.
It is an ideal mixer to learn the craft of sound engineering on without the added complexity of sub groups.
We have been very impressed with the quality of Allen & Heath sound mixers, and would recommend the ZED16FX.
