It's not a studio console: no solo, no monitor output. But if you use a controller monitoring, it will adapt easily.

I bought it as a console to save the extra live on my magneto multitrack.

With 24 direct out, she all of a large format console brand.
You can use it in live mixing and have the opportunity to redirect the signal buses (to, mix and groups) to two-channel matrix (such as large).
Switchable phantom power per slice. And semi-parametric EQ on the midrange and lower midrange. Only four subgroups; just enough for the number of channels.


It does not detract from the brand's reputation for sound quality.
If you hear a whisper is that you have a bad connection or your microphone is broken.
As usual, the brand Allen & Heath fills us with gains and outsized decibels while maintaining clarity of sound regardless of the position of the fader. What is unrivaled at this price.
From 30m of multicore, you should use the Mogami cable (at least), if we do not want to breath.

Attention to the use of Direct Out for recording: the sound "Direct Out" is Post-EQ. Read the data sheet. Your sound will be recorded as you have treated.


I use the brand Allen & Heath for 20 years under conditions of use to hair pulling (rain, mud, sea salt, sand, sea spray, etc..). Never surprises.
A ZED with the quality of the GL series.
Despite the internal power supply, the console heats up very little.
Allen & Heath finally gives us the material accessible to all.
By opening its know-how to budget, they also thought the media by inserting a USB port.

THE least: the famous USB port. Nowadays, we should have had at least the 2.0. Which would record more tracks.
But his philosophy is not for the home studio, which is primarily a live console that gives the opportunity to save or restore the sound on the computer.

At least it comes with Sonar LE. This is the minimum for any beginner in assembling live.
24 track analog (his English) can be stored on computer is from 6000 €.

ZED 428 is therefore a good value for money. Need I remind you that it's made in China? Assemblers and we respected the specifications of the brand.

See the manufacturer's data sheet


So simple

the most

48v on one track (which is mostly ca guid my choice)
buses to

The least
it is not numrique, but that I knew


My first conclusion is not sound, the musisciens taient and the public satisfied. The musicians love the sound in the back.


Taking advantage of a promotion I had the 24 tracks at a price of 16, but eventually I would happy with 16. Prvoir a hardcase for transport because it is heavy and cumbersome. I do not regret my choice because the sound is excellent.
