Allen and Heath ZED12FX

Ultra Compact USB Mixer w/ Effects


The Allen & Heath ZED-12FX is a versatile mixer with a huge number of features in a small footprint. Easy to use, just three knobs control all the parameters of the 16 built-in effects. 6 mic/line channels are provided, ideal for a small band, duo or solo performer, and it features easy USB plug and playability. Boasting outstanding build quality, it is the most rugged mixer in its price range.

Getting audio to and from a computer easily is now a common requirement for live sound and music production. The way this has been implemented on ZED is flexible and easy. Just plug in a USB lead to your ZED, select the USB routing on the mixer and the device on your computer and that's it! You get CD quality audio to and from your PC or Mac. Switches and connection through jack socket terminals provide different send/return configurations.

Send Options:
• Main Mix Left + Right (Post-fade)
• Main Mix Left + Right (Pre-Fade)
• Auxes 1-2
• Auxes 3-FX

Return options:
• To Stereo 3 channel

ZED-12FX features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilizes MusiQ with optimized slope (or Q factor) for equalizing individual instruments.

Based on the proven pre-amps from the hugely successful PA series, ZED-12FX 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.

ZED-12FX has an essential selection of 16 time-delay effects, designed for small groups that don't want to carry around an effects unit with their gear but that still want great quality FX at their gigs and on their recordings. ZED effects are easily controlled using 3 buttons with 9 display LEDs. For example, the ideal delay time can be quickly tapped in, or the perfect amount of reverb on the lead vocal can be dialed in. There is one-stop navigation and editing, in fact, it's just as easy as using effects pedals. To alter effects parameters, the TAP button is held down and the up/down buttons pressed to adjust the specific parameter for that effect, for example, the decay length on PLATE, or the depth on CHORUS.

ZED-12FX comes with Cakewalk SONAR X1 LE software so you can immediately start to use it to create your own music. Just add a PC and get going. You'll be able to record from your ZED mixer, create tracks and arrange songs, then play back to ZED via the USB port. You can use SONAR X1 LE and your ZED mixer together in many ways such as straightforward recording of a stereo mix, recording tracks individually to build up a song, or using the USB port and software as an effects loop.
