Rugged, Great-sounding Mixer with USB Interface

With excellent sound quality and a built-in 2 x 2 USB audio interface, the Allen & Heath ZEDi-8 is a smart mixer for small-format studio and stage applications. Connect two microphones or mono line-level signals, or even two instruments without the need for DI boxes. Two additional stereo channels are available for synthesizers, drum machines, and other line-level sources. Record and play back two channels of 24-bit/96kHz audio via USB without the need for a separate interface.

Record 24-bit/96kHz audio direct to your DAW

With USB 2.0 connectivity, the Allen & Heath ZEDi-8 mixer is ready to record and play back 24-bit/96kHz audio. Just connect to your computer or iOS device, open the included Cubase LE software, Cubasis LE app, or your preferred DAW software, and you're ready to go. Separate controls for the USB playback channels allow you to blend USB audio with the Main Mix and Aux Mix independently.

GSPre preamps based on the GS-R24 recording console

Don't be reluctant to plug your best mics into the Allen & Heath ZEDi-8. This compact mixer boasts GSPre preamplifiers, created by analog guru Mike Griffin and based on his acclaimed GS-R24 recording console. These preamps provide lots of headroom and very little noise, and promise to deliver pleasing warmth and depth. Whether you're podcasting or recording vocals for a music project, expect great results from the ZEDi-8's GSPre preamps.

Connect guitar and bass directly, no need for DI boxes

You won't need separate direct boxes to connect your guitar or bass to the ZEDi-8 mixer, unlike many other compact mixers. The first two channels have switchable hi-Z inputs: just hit the switch and connect any electric or acoustic-electric instruments you like. Engage the low-cut filter to help reduce rumble and unwanted low frequencies, then shape your sound to taste with the 2-band EQ.

Nice little mixer

I bought this mixer, because i needed better quality preamps, and at the same time, i needed enough inputs, to track out my drum maschine and other hardware. I have recorded vocals with this, and i must say that the quality is clean and overall great. The only minus that i can tell about this mixer, is that when you record into a daw using the stereo inputs, if you have click enabled it will record also the click into the track... basicly the ST inputs are useless unless you mute everything in the daw when recording trough them... one more pluss for low latency drivers. I use windows. Oh and also very good built guality. Feels like you can trow it on the floor and it will still work.

It's cool... When it works

I don't know how to rate this exactly... There are no drivers for Mac for this unit. Every time I disconnect my laptop and plug it back in I have to do so 4-6 times before it recognizes the unit. Really poor decision in my opinion to not include Mac drivers. If you go into your sound preferences on your Mac you will not see the Zedi8 even when it's plugged in. When it finally boots up it works very well. It also doesn't seem to work if I close my laptop and try to use a larger external monitor. C'mon guys make a Mac driver!
