At Winter NAMM 2008 this week, Allen & Heath is unveiling the ZED-24, the fifth in the ZED range of small format, USB-equipped mixers.
The ZED-24 stereo mixer offers 23 independent sources to the mix, 10 independent outputs, 4 auxiliary sends (2 pre- and 2 post-fade), a USB send and return, dual stereo input capability, and monitoring facilities.
There are 16 mono channels and 4 stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on jack sockets, and with the ability to take additional stereo inputs from phono sockets or from the USB audio input. In addition, the ZED-24 has a 3-band swept-mid EQ and DuoPre preamps. You can configure the unit's USB output to allow different signals to be sent to USB, from the LR master, the matrix, or the aux busses, with the USB return signal available as a stereo return. The ZED-24 also comes bundled with Cakewalk Sonar LE music production software.
Allen & Heath will also be debuting the ZED 4 bus mixer series: the ZED-420, ZED-428 and ZED-436. For more information, visit www.allen-heath.com.
