The ZED series mixers are equipped with a new MusEQ 3-band equalizer circuit on each mono input and a 2-band EQ on the stereo channels. The frequency and response of each MusEQ circuit has been carefully chosen to give the maximum performance when using the EQ on a variety of sources.

Sounds great, fantastic routing capabilities.

I have a home project studio for tinkering around and doing some professional radio spots and television voiceovers. As I have gotten deeper into this and realized I really had under-bought on much of my gear, I have replaced almost all of it with gear more capable of turning out high quality projects. I just got the Allen and Heath board several days ago. I went into using it in a utilitarian manner, which is to say that I was only thinking of the ease of routing options and ability to do a live monitor, thus avoiding the latency of listening to the track being recorded after being digested and regurgitated through the recording software. But, without even focusing on it, the clarity and robust sound of the board hit me right square between the ears. I have replaced a whole chain of equipment with this single unit and latency is reduced, as is noise. I had considered a Yamaha and Mackie but went with this based on a few comments from retail sales people here and there, and my own gut. NO REGRETS, and no buyer's remorse. I look forward to getting to know this board better and better and am truly excited to get new projects going.

Sonic Zen In An Affordable Package

I recently purchased this Mixer as a part of a major upgrade for my rock band's sound system. We had been using a Behringer 1680s powered mixer and a pieced together main and monitor system. The system worked, but barely. This mixer is the core of a vastly upgraded system. it is feeding two QSC K12's. The sound is very clean, very low distortion. .00 something THD. The faders are very smooth. The EQ is powerful and voiced in a great range for vocals. Love the sweepable mids. The board has two pre fade aux sends for monitor mixes and two post fade aux sends for effects. It is very well laid out and is very easy to make adjustments to in between songs. My band is very happy with the initial results. Of equal importance to the quality and price of this product is the service that Charle Davis my sales consultant provided on this purchase. He was very knowledgeable and answered all questions about the board before my purchase. After I received the board he spent a good bit of time on the phone with me making sure I had the board set up and wired correctly with my Lexicon Effects unit. Sweetwater has the best service on the planet. Thank You Charlie!!

A & H Zed 14 NICE Mixer!!

I mainly use it in my home studio with QSC 12 PAs. The USB works fine with my MacBook Pro for example, playing backing tracks. I also connect 4 channels out of my VoiceLive 3 (stereo vocals, stereo guitar) ... And also stereo cables for two more channels from my keyboard. With 12 channels on the unit I have sufficient inputs for all my needs. This unit is sturdy and nice-looking. Simply put ... GOOD QUALITY. I am someone who does a LOT of research before I make purchases, and even the nice quality faders was a selling point for me. It's so nice and simple to use. I am VERY pleased with this mixer.

quiet fatness

replaced an inexpensive yamaha board with this one. quiet, easy hookup, big fat sound. the Brits like sweet "boom-tizz" type EQ-- just a touch here and there, or lots more if you want to blow something up!nailed it with this unit. i use an older Soundcraft desk to mix on in my studio. This has that sound--natural, clear, full, honest. plenty of routing options, inserts, and lots of headroom. great fader feel. does its job effortlessly. inspires confidence. solid unit.
