What is it?
A pair of additions to the ZED range of multi-purpose live sound and recording mixers.
The ZED-16FX and ZED-18 each offer 10 mono channels and 3 or 4 dual stereo channels, respectively, meeting the demand for increased channel counts in a compact format. In keeping with the rest of the range, both mixers include USB connections for send and return to recording devices, playback and effects. The 10 mono Mic/Line inputs feature A&H’s DuoPre two-stage preamp, 3-band MusiQ EQ with swept mid frequency, and 100mm faders – all in a compact, rack-mountable format. The stereo inputs have 2-band EQ and inputs for extra sources, and there are 4 aux’s accessible from each mono and stereo channel. The ZED-16FX also features a built-in FX processor with tap-tempo delay settings and a 24 bit/48kHz conversion rate, with access to a comprehensive set of 16 in-house effects derived from A&H’s iLive pro touring digital mixing system.
And another thing…
Cakewalk’s Sonar X1 LE music production software is bundled with the ZED-18 and 16FX mixers allowing the user to capture a straightforward recording of a stereo mix, record tracks individually to build up a song, or insert an FX plug-in from Sonar.
