A Record-ready Mixer with Built-in Effects!

A solid mixer with great effects! The Allen & Heath ZED-10FX is the perfect center to your live rig - and it's also ready to rock in the studio. First of all, the ZED-10FX gives you all the connections you need to hook up a small band, a duo, or a solo performer. Thanks to the four mic/line channels (these preamps are awesome, by the way) you can connect all the mics and DI boxes you need. Plus you've got three dual-stereo channels available, each with a gain control and a 2-band EQ. The FX in the name, though, is what takes the cake. Here, you can get tweaky with the ZED-10FX's 16 separate effects, for nailing the perfect, polished live sound.

Check out these effects! Allen & Heath crafted 16 separate effects into the ZED-10FX mixer, ready for any kind of live sound material you face. These effects include a number of useful delays and reverbs, including a ping-pong delay and a selection of reverbs with different room/hall/arena properties. You'll also dig the flanger and the chorus. Each effect has a parameter you can tweak to dial in your sound. Five of the effects support tap tempo, for really getting into the groove.

However, unlike many other mixers with onboard effects, the ZED-10FX is first and foremost a mixer. You can send a stereo signal via USB right to your computer. The ZED-10FX is Mac and PC compatible, and you've got three send/return configurations for recording, playback, and external FX. That's a lot of power! You can't go wrong with the Allen & Heath ZED-10FX!

Superb in this price range

I returned a zed6fx which has a serious design flaw in the line/instrument toggle. Massive buzzing, be warned. The 10fx on the other hand works like a dream. Fantastic compact mixer, very portable, tons of outs, record options, 4 band eq, stellar A&H effects, and more. Functions as a sub mixer in my studio as well. At this price it simply can't be beat. I'm quickly becoming and Allen and Heath devotee!

Best investment I've made

This mixer has gone well beyond my expectations for sound quality, capability, and stability. There is never any overload, even if all channels are in use. The effects are a sublime addition to any channel, and knobs for each channel makes this the best mixer in this price range for live electronic music. The hall reverb can make any blues song sound as though the ghosts of the delta are sitting in your living room howling away. The plate reverb can make synth sounds (especially acid bass) sound as though a higher intelligence is unveiling to you a vista of your inner mind. The various delays each have their own distinguishable personality and provide the psychedelic volume-delay layering needed to massage the pineal gland into silly putty. If you are in the market, go for Allen & Heath.

Good functionality, sounds great

I got this mixer for small acoustic live gigs. It is pretty awesome sounding through a pair of Yamaha DBR10s. We used this mixer and these speakers for a trio (guitar, autoharp, violin) to play recently at an outdoor wedding with 170 guests and the sound was fantastic. I had the DBR10s on stands with levels set to 3 of 10 (markings above unity gain) and D-Contour set to OFF. I pre-mixed us with headphones, because we played without a monitor. The ZED 10FX EQ is very nice, very sensitive. I rolled off the highs about 2db on the autoharp, kept the fiddle EQ flat, and on the Martin HD28 guitar I rolled off the bass 3db and boosted 2db at 2Khz for a perfect guitar sound. I used a wee bit of reverb on all 3 channels. Sounded awesome, and interestingly, the venue owner said it was the best sound system he has heard at his outdoor wedding site. Lots of audience folks told us later the sound was perfect, they could hear every note clearly, and when one of the wedding party did a recitation using one of our sm57s thru the PA, they could all hear her very clearly and she sounded nice. Before the wedding, I did some testing at home with my other little mixer (Mackie 402VLZ4) through the same DBR10 speakers -- I definitely preferred the sound of the ZED 10FX. The Mackie was clean and quiet (no background noise), maybe even quieter than the ZED 10FX, but it was a bit sterile sounding to my ears, while the ZED has some nice warmth and musicality. I really think the ZED 10FX with the DBR10s are a perfect sounding combo for acoustic music in small to medium applications. I wish the ZED 10FX had mute buttons for each channel, and it would be nice if the monitor outs were TRS or XLR instead of RCA. Also, it would be nice if the stereo inputs could be used for mono by just using the L jack with the signal going to both L and R. But the ZED 10FX's EQ, effects, and routing are great soI love this little mixer anyway - it is definitely the best sounding mixer I have heard. Small footprint and low weight make it perfect for us.

Outstanding Board / Superb Service

Hello Folks. My name is Bill Lubekey, and I live in Beaufort, SC. I've been playing R&R music for over 50 years. I still play live music, as well as writing my own music and recording in my home studio. I travelled full time through the 1970's and 80's, and have been through the mill with equipment. I own several Yamaha, Behringer, Mackie, and Fostex mixers. I wanted a small mixer with decent effects, for ease of set up. I looked at all of them and ran the reviews. I could have spent easily half of what I paid for the Allen & Heath ZED-10FX, but I already either own those brands or have played through them. I ordered the ZED and got it at 4:30 in the afternoon of a gig I had to start setting up at 5:00. I took it out of the box for the first time at the gig, and HANDS DOWN, it is BY FAR it is the best sounding mixer I have EVER used. The effects are easy use and sound superb. If you don't buy it, you're missing out on the best you can sound. It delivers from 10Hz to 30k to start with, giving it crisp, robust sound, without that "phony" sounding low end you usually get. As far as SWEETWATER, they offer without a doubt the best, most professional retail service in the buisness. Buy cheaper if you want, then try to get a reply if there's a problem. Ha ! Good Luck ! The real deal-breaker? Well, other than it arriving 2 days ahead of schedule, is the follow-up. Without my contact, a real nice, savvy guy named Dan Overstreet called me, out of the blue, just to ask if I was satisfied with my purchase. Talk about service, WOW ! I am so impressed with this mixer and the follow-up, why would I ever use any company other than SWEETWATER? Pretty much a no-brainer ! Thanks Dan ! You are a great representative of the quality of service at SWEETWATER !

Love this board!

I have been a full-time musician including a 10-year run as owner and performer in an international entertainment group. In addition to my career as a Financial Advisor I am currently a songwriter and perform with two bands in the area. I bought this board for my acoustic guitar duo The Venton Clark Band. Crisp and clear, ease of use and perfect quality. What's not to love?!
