Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer
The Allen & Heath ZED-24 audio mixer has a fantastic pedigree: nearly 40 years of making mixing desks for professional sound engineers. The ZED-24 mixer's audio circuitry is based on years of continual development and refinement. All the elements within the mixer have been perfected to insure the very best sound quality possible.
This is a mixer with broad appeal, from entry-level to professionals. You get fantastic sound, rugged build quality, and imaginative features. The ZED-24 mixer is equally happy running your gig on stage, recording live, or mixing down in your studio at home.
The features are incredibly advanced for a mixer at this level. The ZED 24 has 23 independent sources to the mix, 10 independent outputs, 4 aux sends (2 pre and 2 post fade), a USB send and return for PC or Mac recording, playback and effects, a unique dual stereo input capability and some very advanced monitoring facilities.
In fact, the ZED-24 mixer is so packed with great features that you'd think it would cost much, much more! In addition to 16 mono channels there are 4 stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on jack sockets and the ability to take additional stereo inputs from phono sockets or from the USB audio input, enabling you to control and route any source.
The ZED-24 mixer features a responsive 3-band swept-mid EQ, with an optimized slope for equalizing individual instruments. The ZED-24 also features high quality DuoPre pre-amps, which use a two stage design, with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage, offering lots of headroom. Allen & Heath includes the excellent SONAR LE digital audio workstation software for Windows with the ZED-24 multipurpose mixer. With audio and MIDI multi-track recording and mixing capability, effects plug-ins and editing features, SONAR LE enables the ZED-24 audio mixer to become a live sound, recording, or home recording mixer.
