Product Description

 ZED-18  ALLEN & HEATH 

 

 Compact Audio Recording Mixer 

 

The Allen & Heath ZED -18 is designed for bands, schools, houses of worship, AV and PA hire companies looking for maximum functionality in a compact mixer. With 10 fully featured mono inputs and 4 stereo inputs, ZED-18 packs a huge amount of functionality into a console that can be comfortably carried under one arm or mounted in a 19” rack. All mono channels feature Allen & Heath’s acclaimed DuoPre two stage preamps, 3 band MusiQ EQ with swept mid frequency, 4 auxes and smooth glide 100mm faders. A USB connection allows easy connection to a laptop for adding plug-in FX or capturing stereo recordings. Built to last in demanding live sound environments, ZED -18’s rotary controls are secured to the front panel with steel nuts and high quality components have been used throughout, including Neutrik mic XLRs and 1/4" jack connectors.

ZED-18 features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilizes MusiQ – with optimized slope (or Q factor) for equalizing individual instruments. Based on the proven pre-amps from the hugely successful PA series, ZED-18 has DuoPre pre-amps, which use a two stage design, with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage. When amplifying the signal from the XLR input, the gain range is huge - 69dB of range to be exact - and is very evenly distributed around the gain control, meaning better control of signal level. Most of the gain comes from the first stage, so unwanted noise is kept to a minimum. Line level signals are simply plugged into the second stage of the pre-amp by using the line input jack socket, which has the great advantage of less noise when using the line input and also matching to a higher input impedance.
