Allen & Heath launches new ZED mixer

Following the release of the ZED60-10FX earlier this year, Allen & Heath has announced the launch of the ZED60-14FX compact analogue mixer.

Designed as a companion to the ZED60-10FX, the ZED60-14FX employs the same 60mm faders with the addition of an extra four mono/mic channels.

Two of the eight 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 designed to recreate the sound of a classic tube preamp in a combo or head amp for 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, with the aim of 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 digital effects.

Allen & Heath designer Mike Griffin explained: “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.
