ALLEN & HEATH Releases New ZED Mixer
ALLEN & HEATH has launched the ZED60-14FX, a highly compact analogue mixer that is ideal for small bands and venues as well as DJs looking to branch out into areas such as wedding reception or live music PA.
The ZED60-14FX is a companion to the ZED60-10FX launched earlier this year, employing the same high quality 60mm faders but with the addition of an extra 4 mono/mic channels. Two of the 8 mono channels have high impedance jack inputs that can take a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup, so guitars can be plugged straight into the mixer without the need for DI boxes. These inputs have been crafted to recreate the sound of a classic tube preamp in a combo or head amp for incredible definition and warmth. Two stereo inputs are provided for 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 the studio. The mixer is equipped with professional XLR main stereo outputs, a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speaker feed outputs, and 16 high quality digital effects.
ALLEN & HEATH designer, Mike Griffin, explains: “We designed the ZED-60 mixers to complement the very popular ZED-10FX which is a super-compact but professional standard mixer with rotary faders. The ZED-60 models incorporate additional channel mute switches and 60mm faders making them great to use for dynamic mixing but still retaining their diminutive size. The ZED60-14FX takes it one step further - with 8 mono channels, 2 stereo channels and our renowned in-house designed effects, it’s a very useful piece of kit indeed.”
The ZED60-14FX is available immediately priced at £335 plus VAT.
