Allen & Heath MixWizard4 mixers
Allen & Heath unveils at InfoComm the fourth generation of its MixWizard analogue mixers.
The MixWizard 4 mixers replaces the Wizard3 mixers with three 19" rackable models that can be completed with an optional multitrack USB audio interface. The three WZ4 16:2, WZ4 12:2 and WZ4 14:4:2 are equipped with the new EQ In/Out switching system and retain the 4-band EQ with 2 sweepable mids, 100mm faders, 6 aux sends, 12-segment meters and QCC connector from the Wizard3 series.
The WZ4 16:2 and 12:2 received two digital effect processors (20 presets) and a 2-digit LED display, a tap tempo and an encoder for the effect parameters.
The WZ4 16:2 offers 16 mic/line inputs, 2 stereo returns and separate left/right and mono faders.
The WZ4 12:2 features 8 mono channels, 2 stereo channels, 2 stereo returns and the same right/left and mono faders.
The WZ4 14:4:2 is a dual function mixer that combines 10 mono inputs, 2 stereo inputs and 4 sub-groups to a 6 x 2 matrix for creating custom mixes, an oscillator and a pink noise generator for sound engineers who need to test the speakers.
The three new MixWizard4 mixers will be available in July, prices are the same as the version 3 models. Visit www.allen-heath.com for a detailed description.
