Allen & Heath has added three mini mixers to its ZED analogue console range, including the first ZEDi hybrid mixer/interface.

Allen & Heath ZED-6/ZED-6FX/ZEDi-8The ZED-6, ZED-6FX and ZEDi-8 are designed with features and functionality for use by musicians, recording artists and in A/V work, in a compact, portable format.

All the new models feature two mono channels with separate XLR and TRS jack sockets, and two stereo channels. The mono channels include DI high-impedance circuitry for the jack sockets, allowing guitars to be plugged straight into the mixer without the hassle and expense of carrying separate DI boxes. Additionally, the ZED-6FX includes a proprietary FX system, which includes multi-FX models, combining reverbs, delays, doublers, chorusing, and other modulators to create a dynamic and varied suite of studio quality sound effects.

The ZEDi-8 combines a compact mixer with a 96kHz, 24-bit 2x2 USB interface, providing recording and playback to a Mac or PC or to an iOS device (using a Camera Connection Kit), with flexible source routing options. ZEDi-8 is bundled with Cubase LE music production software and the Cubasis LE mobile music production app.

All new models feature the new A&H GSPre preamplifier design, developed from the GS-R24 professional studio console, which provides exceptionally low noise and massive headroom.

With moulded chassis and metal front panel, all the new ZED models also feature two-band EQ, 60mm smooth travel master mix faders, channel monitoring and 48V phantom power. Unique in this type of product is the individual channel PCB construction with nutted pots and a robust internal, universal voltage power supply for extended life in the toughest environments.

‘The new ZED models deliver Allen & Heath’s renowned build and audio excellence in a small format, making it the ideal choice for quality conscious musicians, singer/songwriters and venues,’ says Allen & Heath Product Specialist, Harry Garcia. ‘Whether it’s bouncing ideas around at home, performing live or recording tracks to share on YouTube and Soundcloud, they are versatile companions for every step of the creative journey.’
