Allen & Heath ZED-12FX and ZED-22FX
Allen & Heath Adds FX To ZED Mixers.
Allen & Heath has selected the forthcoming Pro Light & Sound show in Frankfurt to unveil two new additions to the ZED range of small-format USB mixers for live performance, recording and production. The ZED-12FX (6 mono + 3 dual stereo channels) and ZED-22FX (16 mono + 3 dual stereo channels) retain the same feature set as other models in the range with the addition of a section of in-house designed effects.
ZED's effects are divided into 4 types: tap tempo delays, short reverbs, long reverbs and modulation. They are controlled by three buttons for navigation and editing, allowing the parameters of each effect to be 'dialled-in' to, for instance, pinpoint the delay time or amount of reverb.
The new ZED FX mixers have a 3-band swept-mid EQ on the mono channels, with a 2-band EQ on the stereo channels, 100mm long throw faders, 4 aux sends (2 pre, 2 post fade), a USB send and return (for PC or Mac recording or playback), a dual stereo input capability, and monitoring facilities.
The ZED FX also features the new DuoPre™ padless pre-amps, which use a two stage design with controlled amounts of gain in each stage.
ZED's USB output can be configured to allow different signals to be sent to USB, from the LR master or the aux busses, with the USB return signal available as a stereo return. Cakewalk's SONAR LE music production software is bundled with the mixers, to enable the user to perform many different tasks, for live performance, live recording, studio recording, or studio mixing.
ZED FX models will be shipping in March at the SRP of ZED-12FX £369+VAT and ZED-22FX £535+VAT.
