Product Description

Offering several FX with tap tempo operation, the ZED 10FX takes the ZED 10 even further with shimmering reverb, delays, with even chorus and flange effects to enhance your overall sound. Perfect for small band mixing, the ZED 10FX is portable enough for live applications, but versatile enough for live and studio recording.

Plug guitars directly into the mixer with the specially designed high-impedance inputs, or connect your keyboard or MP3/CD media player through the two stereo inputs. Equipped with professional XLR main stereo outputs and a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speaker feed outputs.

What's great about the ZED 10FX
ZED’s are great for live mixing! Their layout makes them very easy to use and easy to achieve a great sound. They are also perfect for recording, either a live show or an audio project at home can be built up track by track using the USB digital audio interface.

The flexibility and quality of these mixers make them stand out from the crowd. You can plug your guitars or instruments straight into the class A discrete FET high impedance inputs, cater for up to four microphones, two stereo sources with MP3 player compatibility, separate 2-track record outputs and a stereo playback input for 2-track replay or perhaps interval music from a CD player, XLR main stereo outputs with inserts, comprehensive monitoring with headphones and separate monitor speaker outputs, 48V microphone phantom power, DI level switching for sub mixing, and not least of all, the same digital effects algorithms as those used on our flagship digital consoles costing 150 times as much!

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 sixteen mono channels there are two dual stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on jack sockets and with additional inputs on phono sockets. the USB return can be selected to one of the additional inputs so that it feeds either the main LR bus or the stereo channel.

Guitar DI
In place of the DuoPre, the ZED 10FX has pre-amps similar in design to the MixWizard range of mixers, but with a twist! Inputs 3 and 4 have a high impedance jack input capable of taking either a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup.

The redesigned inputs have been crafted with the aim of replicating the sound of a classic guitar or instrument tube pre-amp in a combo or head amp. An extremely high input impedance ensures loading on pick-ups is minimal and a Class A FET (field effect transistor) circuit powered from 48V is employed to give the valve-like gain stage. There is a gain Boost switch associated with the guitar inputs which boosts gain by 26dB to cater for instruments with very low level outputs and the overdrive characteristics of the guitar inputs are very similar to a valve (tube) circuit, being asymmetric and soft. All this makes for a wonderfully natural sound to be reproduced from the instrument, full of warmth and character.

EQ section
ZED 10FX is equipped with a responsive 3-band EQ with MusiQ, an optimised slope (or Q factor) for equalising individual instruments.

Record Bus
A separately switched stereo bus can be routed to from any channel creating a selective recording bus, monitoring bus or stereo clean feed output. You can even route just the effects processor output to this bus and use the mixer as a high end effects unit.

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.

Build
The ZED 10FX 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.

AmpliTube X-GEAR Software
Allen and Heath is pleased to announce a partnership with leading music software company, IK Multimedia, to bundle its pioneering AmpliTube X-GEAR software with the ZED 10FX mini USB mixer.

General
Your general opinion of this product.
Bought this to use for rehearsal and small venues where all that needs to be miked is vocals. We have an A & H Mixwiz 16:2 mixer as well, and its performance was the major reason I got the 10FX. It's built just as solidly and sounds just as clean as its bigger cousin. If you don't need many inputs and you can live without ch inserts, mutes and faders, this will do nicely. I couldn't see the extra $100 just for that on the Zed60 model. Haven't tried the USB output (probably never will). We only use enough reverb to open things up a little and those fx are nice to have on board. Just not into lugging around piles of gear anymore, or having to patch it all up. This fits inside a small laptop bag I got at a yard sale.
Quality
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Build-quality is very nice. Everything is solid. Haven't had it long enough to offer insights into dependability, but other A & H stuff seems pretty reliable
Ease of Use
How easy is this product to use? How easy is the product to use with other products? Did it take long for you to learn to use this product? Was the manual helpful? How playable do you consider this product to be?
couldn't be much simpler - if you know the basics, you really don't even need the manual
Features
What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could?
very little noise, solid feel. I do wish it at least had mute buttons, but it wasn't a deal breaker.
Sound
How is the tone?
doesn't color the sound much at all, unless you want it too
