It’s a great companion for live mixing, live recording, and multitracking over USB.
The ZED60-10FX features 4 mic/line inputs with 3-band EQ and Phantom Power. Channels 3 and 4 have 1/4″ Hi-Z instrument-level inputs for connecting guitars, electric basses, etc. There are 2 additional stereo channels for connecting keyboards or other stereo sources, like a CD player or iPod.
The channel strips of the ZED60-10FX have big functionality for a small format mixer. Each channel features low and high frequency shelving EQ, while the mono channels add a 100Hz high pass filter and an extra band of sweepable midrange. An FX send on each channel controls how much signal is sent to the onboard effects buss, while an Aux send can feed an independent monitor mix. After the panning controls, each channel can be sent or bypassed from the recording buss, post-EQ solo’d with the “Listen” button, or muted. The final stage of each channel strip is a 60mm level fader, providing a tactile mixing experience.
There are 16 digital effects built into the ZED60-10FX, including delays, reverbs, doubler, flanger, and chorus. These same effects algorithms are used on the Allen & Heath flagship digital consoles. Each preset has a parameter adjust control to morph the overall intensity of the effect.
The output section of the ZED60-10FX is perhaps its most versatile element. In addition to the balanced XLR main outputs, there are recording outputs and switchable-source monitor outputs both with stereo RCA connectors. Additionally, a USB output allows you to route the recording buss directly into a computer.
The Allen & Heath ZED60-10FX offers flexibility and functionality that you’d never expect from a 6-channel mixer. With built-in effects, extensive routing options, and high quality components, the ZED60-10FX will always have an extra feature that comes in handy.Vertically-Mounted Channel Circuit BoardsThe ZED60-10FX is built of individual vertically-mounted channel circuit boards, with each rotary control fixed to the front panel by a metal nut.Microphone Preamplifiers Based on the MixWizard Series DesignThe ZED preamps utilize low-noise discrete transistor circuitry to achieve high gain, low noise, and good linearity.Hi-Z Guitar InputsChannels 3 and 4 include high impedance, discrete, class A, FET inputs for plugging a guitar or other instrument straight in. A 26dB gain boost switch allows instruments with very low output pickups to be used, and the FET does a great job of approximating the sound of tube input circuitry.Equalization per ChannelEach of the mono inputs feature a switchable high pass filter and a 3-band equalizer with sweepable mids. The stereo channels have low and high frequency shelving EQ.Onboard Digital EffectsThe ZED60-10FX has 16 built-in digital effects, including delays, reverbs, doubler, flanger, and chorus. These same effects algorithms are used on Allen & Heath’s flagship digital consoles.Recording BussEach channel has a switchable send to a separate stereo buss specifically for recording to an external source through dual RCA jacks or over USB.USB ConnectivityCD-quality audio can be sent or received from your Mac or PC via the ZED60-10FX’s USB port.In the BoxAllen & Heath ZED60-10FX – 6 Channel Mixer with Digital Effects and USB Connectivity1-Year Limited WarrantyUser Manual11.7 MBTable of ContentsDescriptionVertically-Mounted Channel Circuit BoardsMicrophone Preamplifiers Based on the MixWizard Series DesignHi-Z Guitar InputsEqualization per ChannelOnboard Digital EffectsRecording BussUSB ConnectivityAllen & Heath ZED-10FX SpecsMixerNumber of Analog Input Channels8 (4 Mono / 2 Stereo)Number of Mic Preamps4Analog Output Channels1 x Stereo Master Output1 x Stereo Control Room/Monitor Output1 x Mono Aux Send Output1 x Mono FX Send Output1 x Stereo Tape/Record Output1 x Stereo Headphone OutputFaders2.4″ / 60?mm Channel FaderSignal ProcessingEQInput Channels:3-Band Shelving/Semi-Parametric (Mono Channels) 2-Band Shelving (Stereo Channels) EQ ParametersHigh: ¡À15 dB at 12 kHz (Shelving) Mid: ¡À15 dB at 120 Hz to 4 kHz (Semi-Parametric) Low: ¡À15 dB at 80 Hz (Shelving) FiltersInput Channels:High-Pass: 100 Hz, 6 dB/Octave Built-In EffectsYesDigital AudioSample Rates32 / 44.1 / 48 kHzBit Depth16-BitPerformanceHeadroomAnalog: +21 dBUSB I/O: +14 dBFrequency ResponseMic Input to Main Output:10 Hz to 30 kHz +0.5/-1 dB (30 dB Gain) Line Input to Main Output:10 Hz to 25 kHz +0.5/-1 dB (Unity Gain) Stereo Input to Main Output:10 Hz to 30 kHz +0.5/-1 dB Max Input LevelXLR Input:+11 dBu (Mono) 1/4″ Line Input:+31 dBu (Mono) 1/4″ / RCA Input:+15 dB (Stereo) Output LevelXLR Main Output:0 dBu (Nominal) +21 dBu at Max Gain 1/4″ Aux/FX Output:0 dBu (Nominal) +21 dBu at Max Gain Tape/Record/Monitor Output:0 dBu (Nominal) +21 dBu at Max Gain EIN-127 dBu at Max Gain (150-Ohm Input)Noise FloorMain Output:-96 dBu (Master Level at Unity, Channel Levels at -¡Þ, 22 Hz to 22 kHz) THD+NMic Input to Main Output:0.002% at +10 dB Gain (+10 dBu, 1 kHz) Line Input to Main Output:0.01% at +30 dB Gain (1 kHz) 0.003% at Unity Gain (1 kHz) Stereo Line Input to Main Output:0.002% at Unity Gain (+10 dBu, 1 kHz) ConnectivityAnalog Inputs4 x XLR 3-Pin Mic Input2 x 1/4″ Line Input2 x 1/4″ TS Unbalanced Hi-Z Input2 x 1/4″ Input (1 Stereo Pair)1 x Stereo RCA Input2 x 1/4″ Playback Input (1 Stereo Pair)Analog Outputs2 x XLR 3-Pin Main Output1 x Stereo RCA Monitor Output1 x Stereo RCA Tape Output1 x 1/4″ FX Output1 x 1/4″ Aux Output1 x 1/4″ TRS Headphone OutputPhantom Power+48 V, Selectable On/OffUSB1 x USB Type-B (USB 1.1, I/O)PhysicalRack MountableNoDimensions13.2 x 13.6 x 3.7″ / 336 x 346 x 95?mmWeight8.4?lb / 3.8?kgPackaging InfoPackage Weight11 lbBox Dimensions (LxWxH)16.25 x 15.35 x 6.75″Allen & Heath ZED-10FX ReviewsAwesome MixerBy RichieRated 4 out of 5Date: 2016-02-12This is an awesome little mixer, but i have one problem with it. My output volume is lower than usual, this is crazy and it is driving me mad trying to figure out this issue. I also have a behringer mixer and that out put is a lot louder than the z10’s. But all in all it is a very flexible work horse I would recommend it to a friend.Great mixer for the priceBy Marcus RRated 5 out of 5Date: 2015-02-05Great mixer for the price, would highly suggest to people.great little mixerBy MHACKRated 4 out of 5Date: 2014-07-24This is really well designed, solid little mixer. I use it as a keyboard sub-mixer as well as for a main mixer for small gigs. Seems to work very well and clearly better sound than low priced stuff from Berhinger, Yamaha and even Mackie I would say. I have not used the USB function yet to see how it works with my laptop.Great little mixerBy SDRated 5 out of 5Date: 2013-08-08I got this for my band to use in our small practice space and it works great. A ton of headroom and a good # of inputs/outputs for such a little mixer.Very good mixerBy recluseatRated 5 out of 5Date: 2012-11-05As a guitar player, I need a mixer for recording guitar and mic. This mixer gives excellent clarity. A solid mixer at this affordable price!nice & usefullBy mano lentaRated 4 out of 5Date: 2011-07-21perfect balance: price & soundKnobs too close togetherBy DreadFoxRated 1 out of 5Date: 2015-11-09Knobs are too close together, makes it difficult to adjust. I don’t have this problem with other boards.Great productBy J.T.Rated 5 out of 5Date: 2015-04-12This is a great little mixer. I use it to sub mix my stage station as a multi instrumentalist in a classic rock band. Allen & Heath makes high quality gear and the service from B & H was top notch.See any errors on this page?
