Allen & Heath Releases New Zed Mixer -
Allen & Heath has launched the ZED60-14FX, a highly compactanalogue mixer that is ideal for small bands and venues. ZED60-14FXis a companion to the ZED60-10FX launched earlier this year,employing the same high quality 60mm faders but with the additionof an extra 4 mono/mic channels.
Two of the 8 mono channels have high impedance jack inputs thatcan take a normal line level or a low level input from a guitarpickup, so guitars can be plugged straight into the mixer withoutthe need for DI boxes. These inputs have been crafted to recreatethe sound of a classic tube preamp in a combo or head amp forincredible definition and warmth. Two stereo inputs are providedfor MP3/CD players or keyboards.
The ZED60-14FX also comes with configurable USB audio in/out,making it easy to capture a stereo recording at the gig or in thestudio. The mixer is equipped with professional XLR main stereooutputs, a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speakerfeed outputs, and 16 high quality digital effects.
Allen & Heath designer, Mike Griffin, explains:
"We designed the ZED-60 mixers to complement the very popularZED-10FX which is a super-compact but professional standard mixerwith rotary faders. The ZED-60 models incorporate additionalchannel mute switches and 60mm faders making them great to use fordynamic mixing but still retaining their diminutive size. TheZED60-14FX takes it one step further - with 8 mono channels, 2stereo channels and our renowned in-house designed effects, it's avery useful piece of kit indeed."
The ZED60-14FX is available immediately.
