Allen & Heath GLD-112 Chrome Edition Digital Mixer at a Glance:
  • Automatic Mic Mixer is perfect for conferences and broadcast
  • More than a rack's worth of effects and processors

Automatic Mic Mixer is perfect for conferences and broadcast

The GLD-112 Chrome Edition's Automatic Mic Mixer mode automatically balances up to 44 microphone inputs, perfect for conferences, panel talks, and TV shows. It's ideal for novices and volunteers who may not be comfortable mixing a large number of mics, and it's also great for pros who have more important things to do than ride dozens of faders.

More than a rack's worth of effects and processors

The GLD-112 has you covered with ample processing power and a slew of outstanding compressors, delays, reverbs, phasers, pitch shifters, sub harmonic synthesizers, transient processors, and more. In all, you get eight stereo effects engines, which you have access to at all times. You can save presets to a USB key and load them up on a different GLD-112 whenever you need to. And effects can be returned via input channels or via dedicated returns with 4-band parametric EQ.

Intuitive layout

The Allen & Heath GLD-112 Chrome Edition has an analog-style channel processing section complemented by a beautiful 8.4" touchscreen display. The customizable drag-and-drop arrangement allows effortless assignment of inputs and mixes to the fader strips. You get 28 fader strips in four layers - each with motorized fader, channel LCD display (which may be labeled and color-coded), and rotary control for immediate access to gain, pan, and aux sends. The GLD-112 Chrome Edition's onboard I/O includes four XLR mic/line inputs, four XLR line-outs, four RCA inputs, two RCA outputs, as well as S/PDIF and AES3 digital outs.

Flexible I/O options

Allen & Heath's GLD-112 Chrome Edition connects to a range of plug-and-play I/O racks to give you a 28-, 36-, or 44-mic-input system. The main GLD-AR2412 AudioRack (24 XLR inputs and 12 XLR outs) and up to two AR84 expander racks (each having eight XLR inputs and four XLR outs) may be rigged up with up to 400' runs of Cat 5 cable using Allen & Heath's dSNAKE protocol. dSNAKE gives you control over the remote preamp, with all mic preamps being scene-recallable. (The GLD-AR2412 unit also includes a connection for personal monitoring systems.)

Innovative features galore

The Allen & Heath GLD-112 Chrome Edition boasts a boatload of innovative, cutting-edge features that make your life on the road a whole lot easier. Record and play back a stereo signal directly to/from a USB memory stick. You can also easily install standard iLive option cards for Dante, MADI, EtherSound, and Allen & Heath's own ACE protocols, giving you multichannel record and playback, FOH/monitor splits, and connection to iLive systems that can easily be configured using GLD's extensive soft-patching.

Excellent. 'nuff said.

Setting up for us in a high school - STUDENTS will be running it. LOVE the account login flexibility, the scene selection, and the EASY backup to thumb drive. Sound quality excellent - I have experience with the iLive series, and the GLD series is easier to setup and operate, comparatively. What you give up GLD vs iLive is unimportant in our situation here [middle/high school, standard school types of events]. Really impressed with the unit. Going to be fun training the kids to use it well!

Successful Conversion from an Analog to Digital Board

My church recently purchased the GLD-112 when making a substantial upgrade to our sound system. We needed more connections on the stage and the underground conduit was jammed full. After reviewing all of the digital mixers out there, I chose the GLD-112 and have not regretted it. There has been a learning curve. Before on the analog board, you could either do something or not. Now with the GLD-112, you can do anything. It may take some programming, but we are able to send sound to where ever we want! We now have 16 extra inputs and 8 extra outputs on the stage by using the Digital Floor Box and running the signal back to the GLD-112 with a simple Cat-5 wire. Using the touchscreen, we can tweak the sound quality like never before by visually adjusting the sound wave. The iPad connectivity is just fun. Now I can control the GLD-112 from anywhere in the church! There is still more to learn, but we are already benefiting from the GLD-112 by having better and clearer sound quality. And by using the Digital Floor Box, all of our stage jacks are operational again. Previously, the analog board did not have enough inputs. Without reservation, I would recommend the A&H GLD family of products.

Great Little Desk

Absolutely love mixing on this desk. Has a lot of power and flexibility. Super intuitive and flexible work flow. I feel like I can focus on mixing instead of remembering how to navigate menus and settings. Also I love having multiple compressors to choose from on every channel. Pair it with the ME-1's and you've got a perfect in-ear option!
