Product Description

Complementing the existing ZED series, the ZED FX has been developed around an FX chipset purely for the new model. Our 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 ZED-12FX

In addition to the DuoPre 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 our DSP team, here 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 perfect 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 fulfill 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 recognizable 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 ZED-12FX 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.

Features

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 dialed-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 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-12FX - 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 new 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.

EQ section

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

Auxiliary sends
Four 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 ZED-12FX 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!

We 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.

As excited as I was by this high-quality product and all the good things I have heard (and still believe) about Allen and Heath, my USB left channel started getting low when run through the fader after about 1.5 years (just long enough to be off manufacturer warranty). I have treated my mixer well and by no means put it through 'pro' abuse. I made sure to keep it covered when not in use. When I press on a certain place near the slot for the USB fader the channel comes back some. Sounds fine with L-R is set and all the other stuff seems to work. I also tried from two different systems, an XP and a Windows 7. Both had the problem. Without USB this is worth less than half the cost since I use it for online recording and performance. I have a call into A&H 'USA' and will report back, but am very frustrated since I dropped the cash for the 'better' mixer expecting to avoid this type of quality hassle.

I'll stay with Allen and Heath, the mixing channels sound great.
But I should heave been a more critical consumer.
I should have known the USB and FX functions would be underwhelming and waste space as they do on most mixers.
The biggest problem I have is with the dedicated send and returns being 1/8 jacks, that was a problem I didn't even think to look for. Huh??!?? I'm guessing someone finds that useful..but with the rest of the board being industry standard 1/4 and XLR...strange choice in my book.
So long story short, a traditional user loses channels on send/return. Problem.
Not a poor quality mixer by any stretch but features are a little odd so just make sure they are what u need.

Great unit once I got A good one that worked right. Perfect size/features for a home recording, and live performance. I do some ripping/remixing for my radio show.
1st & 2nd machine didn't have a working CODEC. A&H knew exactly what was wrong when I called and had repair people lined up in my area to fix it!!!
I sent it back to Amazon 2X before I got a good one.

Amazon was very helpful in getting squared away.
Check all feature on arrival. JM

Great mixer, pre-amp sounds crystal clear. Amount of gain is amazing out of the 12FX, compared to some lower priced mixers.

I prefer this more than the Zed 14 because of the extra FX effects. The faders and knobs are easy to turn, and the layout of the board is fairly easy to understand even for a beginner like me.

This is all anyone would want in a mid-range mixer and then some. It is larger than pictured, be sure to measure your workspace. Very well packaged, arrived in perfect condition. If you have never used a mixer, it will take quite awhile to get the hang of it as the Instruction Manual is not good. Sure it explains what the plugs and knobs are for but there are no practical examples. The company should make some videos and post them on their website. It was a lot of trial and error on my part but I am 100% satisfied with it.
