ZED-16FX has a distinctive attribute a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilises MusiQ – with optimised slope (or Q factor) for equalising individual instruments.
ALLEN HEATH ZED16FX 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 ZED16FX, in its price point included both quality and integration. With just 3 buttons with 9 display LEDs ALLEN HEATH ZED16FX 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.
Based on the proven pre-amps from the hugely successful PA series, ZED-16FX has DuoPre pre-amps, which use a two stage design, with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage. When amplifying the signal from the XLR input, the gain range is huge – 69dB of range to be exact – and is very evenly distributed around the gain control, meaning better control of signal level. Most of the gain comes from the first stage, so unwanted noise is kept to a minimum. Line level signals are simply plugged into the second stage of the pre-amp by using the line input jack socket, which has the great advantage of less noise when using the line input and also matching to a higher input impedance.
