From the Allen & Heath's ZED series, the ZED-22 FX has been developed around a new FX chipset. Allen & Heath's DSP engineers crafted and refined beautiful reverb algorithms and the 16 effects they created are unique to the ZED FX mixing consoles. 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. In addition, you get smooth-sounding DuoPre mic preamps, 100mm faders, and the MusiQ EQ section which are shared with the whole ZED range.Internal FX16 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 sweeten your sound with minimal effort. Each of the effects has a parameter which can be altered: pre-delay can be adjusted, room sizes tweaked, and flanger speed dialed-in. 5 of the effects can have their tempo tapped in, and the output auditioned by the FX PFL.InputsOne of the great things about the ZED-22FX USB mixer is the number and variety of things you can plug in. In addition to the 16 mono channels, there are 3 dual stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on the jack sockets, and with the ability to take additional stereo inputs from phono sockets, or from the USB audio input. 16 mic/line channels are provided on the ZED-22FXplenty for mics or DI boxes for a small band, duo, or solo performer, as well as 4 stereo line inputsdual inputs, both with gain and 2-band EQ.DuoPreBased on the proven preamps from their PA series, Allen & Heath's ZED series mixers have DuoPre preamps which use a 2-stage design, with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage. When amplifying the signal from the XLR input, the gain range is huge69dB of range to be exactand 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 preamp by using the line input jack socket, which has the great advantage of less noise when using the line input. EQ sectionThe ZED-22FX series mixers feature a musical 3-band EQ derived from the acclaimed GL2400 mixer. The design uses MusiQoptimised slope (or Q factor) for equalizing individual instruments. Auxiliary sends4 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 L/R mix (1&2) and or used as FX sends (3&4).USB audio flexibilityGetting 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 the ZED-22FX USB mixer is flexible and 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 mixer, select the USB routing on the mixer and the device on your computer, and that's it. 3 switches provide different send/return configurations for recording, playback, and utilizing external FX.BuildThe ZED-22FX USB mixer has been designed using individual, vertically mounted circuit boards with each rotary control fixed with a metal nut to the front panelmaking a much more robust product that will resist damage and give years of reliable use. It also has professional 100mm faders for ultimate control over your levels.SONAR LE includedAllen & Heath teamed up with Cakewalk to bundle SONAR LE with the ZED 22-FX mixer. The 2 work together in many ways, from straightforward recording of a stereo mix to recording tracks individually to build up a song, or even for inserting a SONAR LE effects plug-in. ZED FX SeriesZED FX USB mixers are easily controlled using 3 buttons and 9 LEDs. Quickly tap the ideal delay time or dial in the perfect amount of reverb on the lead vocal. Talk about one-stop navigation and editing, it's just as easy your average 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-22FX mixer is designed to fulfill all the functions needed for a small band. The layout and features have all been arranged to be logical and instantly recognizable even at a dark gig to make it a mixer you can trust to perform.The USB audio interface, with its uniquely flexible capability, allows different signals to be sent to USB, from L/R or from selected aux buses. The USB return signal can be routed straight to the L/R 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.16 internal effects including Delay and Reverb, Ping-Pong, more16 mono channels3 dual stereo channels, each with main stereo input on the jack socketUSB audio input22 channel (16 mono + 3 stereo)DuoPre preamps100mm faders9 LED meterHigh-pass filterStereo imaging control on every channel3-band EQ with swept mid4 auxiliary sends (2 pre, 2 post)Global 48V phantom power3 dual stereo inputs with 2-band EQPeak and signal indication on every channelConfigurable USB stereo audio in/outMaster level controls on all outputsEasy-to-use layoutall connections and controls on top surfaceCakewalk SONAR LE bundled with mixerChannel mute switchesStereo return2-track returnAdvanced monitoring facilities1/4" and 3.5mm headphones outputsStereo record outalternative stereo outMono sum of L/R outputMain L/R12-bar L/R metersMaster controls for Aux 1&2
