Allen & Heath ZED 14 Mixer with USB

 

Allen and Heath's ZED-14 USB is a compact stereo mixer, ideal for musicians, recording artists and venues. Whether you're tracking demos at home, performing live or contributing to commercial releases. The ZED-14 is the ultimate companion for every step of your creative journey.

Even with its compact size, the ZED-14 includes four auxiliary channels and a sweepable, three-band EQ, ideal for manipulating the tone of your recordings for instant, professional results. You'll be able to capture performances and record them directly to your Mac or PC without the need for additional equipment.

Make your performances resonate with the listener through the inclusion of premium DuoPre preamps. These will provide you with exceptionally low noise and expansive headroom, thanks to distributed gain control. The Zed-14 is a workhorse, designed to streamline your workflow and drastically improve the sonic quality of your recordings.

Key Features

  • The rugged design makes the ZED-14 ideal for live use
  • Six high-quality preamps
  • The perfect companion for musicians, self-recording artists and venues
  • Ideal for streamlining workflow

Premium USB audio interface

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.

High-quality 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 six 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. 6 mic/line channels are provided on ZED-14 - 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

DuoPreTM

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

Musical EQ Section

ZED-14 features a musical 3-band EQ derived from the acclaimed GL2400 mixer. The design utilises MusiQ - optimised slope (or Q factor) for equalising individual instruments.

Versatile Auxiliary Sends

4 aux sends are provided, of which 1&2 are pre-fade for foldback monitoring, and 3 & 4 post-fade for effects sends. A stereo signal can be sent from auxes via USB to the 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 utilising external FX.

Rugged Build Quality

The ZED-14 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 & 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 inserting a SONAR LE effects plug-in.
