By PSW Staff • July 17, 2012 The new Allen & Heath ZED60-14FX mixer Allen & Heath has launched the ZED60-14FX, a highly compact analog mixer that is ideal for small bands and venues. ZED60-14FX is a companion to the ZED60-10FX launched earlier this year, employing the same high quality 60mm faders but with the addition of an extra four mono/mic channels. Two of the eight mono channels have high impedance jack inputs that can take a normal line level or a low level input from a guitar pickup, so guitars can be plugged straight into the mixer without the need for DI boxes. These inputs have been crafted to recreate the sound of a classic tube preamp in a combo or head amp for incredible definition and warmth. Two stereo inputs are provided for MP3/CD players or keyboards. The ZED60-14FX also comes with configurable USB audio in/out, making it easy to capture a stereo recording at the gig or in the studio. The mixer is equipped with professional XLR main stereo outputs, a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speaker feed outputs, and 16 high quality digital effects. Allen & Heath designer Mike Griffin explains: “We designed the ZED-60 mixers to complement the very popular ZED-10FX which is a super-compact but professional standard mixer with rotary faders. The ZED-60 models incorporate additional channel mute switches and 60mm faders making them great to use for dynamic mixing but still retaining their diminutive size. “The ZED60-14FX takes it one step further – with eight mono channels, two stereo channels and our renowned in-house designed effects, it’s a very useful piece of kit indeed.” The ZED60-14FX is available immediately.
