ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX SMALL MIXER WITH EFFECTS
ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX is created for small band mixing, an amazing little desk perfect for them. It can be used for recording live or in the studio, its build is ultra-portable for carrying to the gigs, a small mixer that can handle your mixing experience. ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX is built for making it easy to capture stereo recordings as it comes with configurable USB audio in/out.
The mixer has two stereo inputs for MP3/CD players or keyboards, while guitars can be easily plugged in directly to the mixer using the high-impedance inputs especially designed to fulfill its purpose.
It is equipped with a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speaker feed outputs and professional XLR stereo outputs. To further give you an much more enjoyment and sound experience we've added a set of fabulous effects to enhance your sound and to give shimmering reverbs.
USB AUDIO FLEXIBILITY
Getting audio from and to a computer has never been to easy, as in live sound and music production it is very common nowadays. ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX is crafted with the implementation of getting audio to and from computer, are now super-easy and it is super-flexible too! The old ways are no longer, as in this ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX you don’t need to fiddle around the back of your PC to get to he soundcard inputs, just only to find the levels are all wrong and noisy. Now, just plug in a USB lead to your ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX, and on your computer just select the USB routing on the mixer and the device and that’s all it takes! Capable also of CD quality audio from and to your PC or Mac. Switches and connection through jack socket terminals provide different send/return configurations.
1) Main Mix Left + Right (Post master Level)
2) Aux + FX bus (Aux is a pre-fade send, FX is a post-fade send)
3) Record Bus Left + Right (Separate stereo bus to Main Mix)
1) To Playback input (through jack socket break contacts)
2) To Stereo 2 channel (through jack socket break contacts)
ZED-10FX features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilises MusiQ – with optimised slope (or Q factor) for equalising individual instruments.
ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX is designed for small groups who don’t want to carry around much things like an effects unit with their gear but still strives to have great quality FX on their recordings and at their gigs, because it is created with an essential selection of 16 time-delay effects making it to be an all-around light build FX. You’ll find it enhance in its every performance, since our DSP engineers worked hard, refining and crafting beautiful reverb algorithms. These effects can be found nowhere else, but only in ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX, in its price point included both quality and integration. With just 3 buttons with 9 display LEDs ALLEN HEATH ZED10FX effects are easily controlled by that. For example, the perfect amount of reverb on the lead vocal can be dialled-in or the ideal delay time can be quickly tapped-in. Just as easy as using effects pedals there’s one-stop navigation and editing. To adjust the specific parameter for that effect, the TAP button is held down and the up/down buttons pressed, to alter effects parameters, just as an example, the decay length on PLATE, or the depth on CHORUS.
ZED-10FX’s pre-amps are similar in design to our MixWizard range of mixers, but with a twist! Inputs 3 & 4 have a high impedance jack input capable of taking either a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup. These newly designed inputs have been crafted with the aim of replicating the sound of a classic guitar or instrument tube pre-amp in a combo or head amp. An extremely high input impedance ensures loading on pick-ups is minimal and a Class A FET (field effect transistor) circuit powered from 48V is employed to give the valve-like gain stage. There is a gain “Boost” switch associated with the guitar inputs which boosts gain by 26dB to cater for instruments with very low level outputs and the overdrive characteristics of the guitar inputs are very similar to a valve (tube) circuit, being asymmetric and soft. All this makes for a wonderfully natural sound to be reproduced from the instrument, full of warmth and character.
