Product Description

Complementing the existing ZED series, the ZED FX has been developed around an FX chipset purely for this model. Allen and Heath's DSP engineers have been working hard, crafting and refining beautiful reverb algorithms. The effects are available nowhere else - this quality and integration is only available from the ZED FX.

16 essential time-delay effects add to the already bulging feature set. The mixer is ideal for small groups who don't want to carry around an effects unit with their gear but who still want great quality FX at their gigs and on their recordings.

What's great about the ZED22F?

In addition to the DuoPreTM mic pre-amps, 100mm faders and MusiQ EQ section which are shared with the whole ZED range, the ZED FX has 16 unique effects, designed by Allen and Heath's DSP team, there in Cornwall.

ZED FX

ZED FX are easily controlled using 3 buttons and 9 LEDs. Quickly tap the ideal delay time or 'dial-in' the per fect amount of reverb on the lead vocal. One-stop navigation and editing... In fact, just as easy as your effects pedals. Hold down the TAP button and press the up or down button to alter the effects parameter, for example on patch (9) Plate, this would adjust the decay length. The ZED FX is designed to fulfil all the functions a small band would need without their own sound engineer. The layout and features have been arranged to be logical and instantly recognisable at a dark gig- a mixer you can trust to per form.

The USB audio interface, with its uniquely flexible capability, allows different signals to be sent to USB, from LR or from selected aux buses. The USB return signal can be routed straight to the LR mix or to a stereo channel. The connectors are placed on the top surface for easy plugging & patching, and the construction, with individual circuit boards firmly nutted to the top panel, is as rock solid as Allen & Heath's top of the range ML Series mixers.

The ZED FX range currently comprises of the ZED12FX and the 22FX. Between them they offer a solution for any small group or singer songwriter needing up to 16 mono inputs and 3 stereo inputs. Keyboards, microphones, samplers, the sky is the limit. Each mono channel has an insert point, allowing in-line effects such as compressors to be added to the signal chain, just like our large format mixers.

Internal FX

16 separate effects have been crafted into the ZED-FX range. These include Delay and Reverb, Ping-Pong delay, a selection of reverbs with different room/hall/arena properties, a flanger and a chorus. All have been designed to complement the material the engineer is working with. Each of the effects has a parameter which can be altered: pre-delay can be adjusted, room sizes tweaked, and flanger speed dialled-in. Five of the effects can have their tempo tapped in, and the output auditioned by the FX PFL.

Inputs

One of the great things about the ZED series is the number and variety of things you can plug in. In addition to the 16 mono channels there are three dual stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on jack sockets, and with the ability to take additional stereo inputs from phono sockets or from the USB audio input, flexibility gives you control. 16 mic/line channels are provided on ZED22FX - plenty for mics or DI boxes for a small band, duo or solo performer 4 stereo line inputs - dual inputs, both with gain and 2-band EQ.

DuoPre

Based on the proven pre-amps from the hugely successful PA series, the ZED series has DuoPreTM 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.

EQ section

ZED22FX features a musical 3-band EQ descended from the acclaimed GL2400 mixer.
The design utilizes MusiQ - optimized slope (or Q factor) for equalizing individual instruments.

Auxiliary sends

4 aux sends are provided, of which 1&2 are prefade for foldback monitoring, and 3 & 4 post-fade for effects sends. A stereo signal can be sent from auxes via USB to computer to create 2 separate record feeds independent of the main LR mix (1&2) and or used as FX sends (3&4).

USB audio flexibility

Getting audio to and from a computer easily is now a common requirement for live sound and music production. The way we have implemented this on ZED is super-flexible and super-easy! No longer do you need to fiddle around the back of your PC to get to the soundcard inputs, only to find that the levels are all wrong and noisy. 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! Quality audio to and from your PC or Mac. Three switches provide different send/return configurations for recording, playback and utilizing external FX.

Build

The ZED22FX has been designed using individual vertically mounted circuit boards with each rotary control fixed with a metal nut to the front panel - making a much more robust product that will resist damage and give years of reliable use. ZED also has professional 100mm faders for ultimate control over your levels.

Sonar LE - provided Free!

Allen and Heath have teamed up with Cakewalk to bundle Sonar LE with this ZED mixer. The two team up together in many ways - for example straightforward recording of a stereo mix, recording tracks individually to build up a song, or for inserting a Sonar LE effects plug-in.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (7 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Make the right decision $$$ for $$$ Allen & Heath ZED22FX Mixer"
Sound: We upgraded from a Yamaha 512c mixer and are absolutely amazed at the clarity of the Allen & Heath ZED22FX Mixer. We did buy 2 of the CRown XTI 4000's to run the mixer so I'm sure that helped. We have only used it for a couple of shows but after we played around with it for a couple of hours mixing different sounds and effects we were able to set up and get a solid sound check fast. We have not used the usb recording feature yet, but it looks pretty straight forward. Feature: Seems to have all the features our band needs for the present and forseeable future. The effects are good andcan be controlled exactly like you want them. Ease of Use: After you learn the board features and where everything is located it's pretty easy to set up and go. The manual and guide provides you with what you need to know. Just take a couple of hours at home to go over things. Quality: It's a solidly built mixer, metal with good markings and finish. The controls are sturdy and the unit seems road worthy. Value: I got a price match as always and am happy with what I am paying for. Manufacturer Support: nothing yet The Wow Factor: Looks,feels and sounds great! Overall: I don't think we will be searching for anything for a while. If the mixer were stolen I would replace it with another Allen & Heath. I looked at Yamaha, Peavey, and Mackie mixers. Bang for the buck I felt that the Allen & Heath gave me more features for the money!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Allen and Heath ZED22FX Mixer"
Overall: I was looking for a board that would fit my needs and not break the bank too.I had a 12 channel Euro pro that I was using and the difference is night and day.Even though they both had effects, I could tell right away that the ZED had way better quality and even had good comments from the band members on how much better the sound was. I'm not real good at soundboards but this was easy to use.I'm not sorry at all for the getting the board. The board showed up in great shape from shipping. zZounds did a great job packaging. Would do biz again if I have to.
