Zen-14 SweetnessA sizable mixer with a professional feel even for we amateurs. The 4 Aux sends and easy patch arrangement make it a snap to bring in multiple audio sources for Amateur Radio. The Large sliders teamed with multiple outputs allows for a wide range of uses. After "Saving" money on a lesser quality mixer I've found the bargain I can really use.

Quick Fix to permanent installation.I have been recording/mixing on a hybrid, large format custom console, tape and DAW for years. From Ramsa to the most recent > a custom modified 1980s Soundcraft 200 b deluxe . Over the course of a recent mix I could hear the internal workings start to go.Finally I hear a fuzz…. hissy crescendo… good by power supply.
In need of a quick fix, small format mixer that I could bring a few stems out, along with my Dangerous 2 bus return and the 4 tracks off the MCI quad mastering deck.
I went with this little monster due to one thing........
100 mm long throw P&G faders.
@ this price point I had a hard time finding a mixer with this feature.
After 2 decades throwing faders around it was essential to have these for my work flow.
After talking with my rep Mark Thompson of my needs for this quick fix I went with the ZED.
I received the unit the next day re worked the myriad of cables, brought up the pro tools session, put on a new reel of tape and rolled with it. Right out the box this unit worked flawlessly, quite, great headroom, nice features such as line & mic signals on different stages of the gain staging of the pre, decent EQs especially for cutting signals,I even tried the mic pre on a ribbon mic, hey what do you know it worked and sounded good too!
The unit has great routing for those who need an interface(all though I don't use the ZED as an interface Im sure that it will exceed expectations in that manner as well.)
As a quick fix to finish a mix for a client Im impressed with the Zed and enjoy working with this piece of kit.
I haven't fixed the 200b, this will work for now and I use the Dangerous 2 bus more on a project due to the use of the ZED.
I ve purchased many products for my commercial studio from Sweetwater and will continue to in the future.

Amazing Mixer!Right out of the box you can see and feel the solid build of this mixer. The faders are very smooth and the knobs are rock solid. In comparison to my old Mackie, i'd say this has a much warmer, tighter sound. My only gripe is that i wish the USB audio was 24/96 instead of the measly 16/44.1
