Allen & Heath

A massively versatile makeover of the popular GL2200.

The Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer enhances PA systems with its dual-function 24-channels loaded to the teeth with features you need for all kind of live audio mixing applications. The GL2400-24 mixer offers 4 group, 6 aux, and LR mixes, enhanced 7x4 matrix, multi-source stereo channels, and aux-fed subs capability.

Dual Functionality:
When mixing Front-of-House, the monitors can be set pre-insert as well as pre-EQ to prevent your house mix EQ and compression affecting the stage mix. Per channel the 24-channel mixer's aux switching means you can mix pre-fade with post-fade sends such as theatre radio mics and sound effects. As a monitor console, the aux masters have faders, inserts, mutes, meters and balanced XLR drive. You even get a fader controlled engineer' wedge feed. The Groups and LR mixes are still available to create yet more sends. In monitor mode the GL2400 audio mixer can provide up to 10 mixes, for example 6 wedge and 2 stereo IEM.

Performance:
Allen & Heath's mic preamp has an extended 74dB gain range with massive headroom able to deal with the widest range of signals right up to +34dBu. From a low-noise mix amp through responsive 4-band EQ to the differential balanced +26dBu outputs, every stage has been carefully designed to ensure optimum gain structure and the best sonic performance possible.

Third Fader:
There are 3 master faders on the Allen & Heath GL2400 Mixer. A configurable M fader lets you create an LR sum mono fill, an engineers monitor wedge feed, or a dedicated center or sub-bass speaker mix from Aux 6 which means you can dial in exactly what you need from each channel. L, R ,and M each provide a dedicated meter, mute, AFL, and balanced XLR output.

7x4 Matrix:
The mixing console's matrix is a big feature for corporate AV work, specialized recording and broadcast feeds, and personal monitoring. Smart auto-switching of the external inputs lets you add a common mono, stereo, or independent sources to the matrix. Cross patch from the stereo channel mic breakpoints add room ambiance to your recording and IEM feeds.

Dual Stereo Channels:
These 2 multi-function channels provide a mic and 2 stereo line inputs each. Use the channels on this Live Console Mixer as mic inputs while the 4 stereos are independently routed to LR, or combine stereo sources such as backing tracks and reverbs while the mics are patched elsewhere. Or use conventional stereo channels while the second inputs provide additional returns and the mics patch into the matrix for ambiance.

Comments about Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer:

This is an incredible mixer. The title says it all. I bought mine used from an outdoor music venue after they had been using it for years and have now had it for 4. It stood up to the cold and weather and countless shows and still works better then almost any mixer I have ever touched. It's great live or in the studio and the sound it produces is sure to please. It may seem a bit pricey to some on a budget but believe me it will last you a very long time. And the money you will save not having to replace it or fix it will far out way the initial investment.

Awesome Console for Live and Studio Recording !

By Texas Music Man

from Cullman, AL

Comments about Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer:

On June 18, 2010 our first band, Tears Of Laughter 1968-1970, had a forty year reunion in Haltom City, Texas. I wanted to do a professional live recording of the show but my Mackie 1640 did not have enough channels. I had to acquire a larger console and after much on-line research I purchased a pre-owned Allen & Heath GL2400-24 console. We used all 24 direct outs hooking up to an Alesis HD24 digital record deck. The recording quality was beyond impressive and the quality of the house sound (Crown and QSC amps) was awesome. After the show I sold the console but have always regretted it. Well, I decided I have to have another A&H GL2400 24 and today I placed an order for one. Since these consoles are expandable I do not see me ever selling this console. I have also owned a world renowned Mackie 32-8 console and a Soundcraft Spirit 24 console. The Allen and Heath GL2400 out shines them all beyond comparison. Check out the Tears Of Laughter web site and step back in time to the 60's ! Be sure to sign the guest book!
It's all there . . . nothing missing! Direct outs on every channel! These are true individual 1/4" TRS direct outs rather than the DB-25 break-outs used by Mackie and others. Preamps produce crystal clear. EQ is boutigue. Pro 100 mm high quality faders (you can feel the high quality). Many routing possibilities.
It's built like a tank. I know of a guy who bought an A&H console in the early 80's, uses it weekly, and it has never been in a repair shop. One sure sign of a console that is prone to have issues and need repairs is you will see tyhem offered as "Factory B Stock" at a discount price. The "B" stock consoles are one thatb were sold new then returned for refund due to failure issues. The company goes through them and makes any necessary repairs and then offers them to their retail dealers at a great discount. They typically have a 90 day warranty. So, during my pre-purchase research I noticed that Mackie consoles are commonly available as "B" stock. I have never seen a "B" stock A&H console. That speaks volumes about quality.
Excellent value. Be sure to shop the price though. I did and saved 18% over what the average on-line store was selling them for.

Best in it's class

By OracleBand

from Washington DC

Comments about Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer:

I moved to this board about a year ago after finally letting go of my old GL2000. I shopped & listened to 8-10 other mixers, but for the features, price, & above all SOUND, the GL2400 can't be beat. It is MUCH more solid than anything Mackie makes. In the year I've had it I've had no problems whatsoever with it. My GL2000 survived almost 10 years of constant one nighters, & the 2400 promises to be just as reliable. The matrix allows for some great off-the-board recordings, as well as independent feeds for house or other external PA systems. You can even use it to drive a separate set of subwoofers for just certain instruments, such as to reinforce the kick drum or bass. The individual outs are great for aux effects sends as well as monitor mixes. I wish it offered 8 aux busses instead of only 6, but having the matrix & the direct outs allow me to accomplish what the band needs. Although you only see two stereo faders, there are really a total of 4 stereo inputs...great for stereo effects returns or keyboards / sound modules. If you want a board that sounds better you're looking at paying more than double this price. You'll love this desk.

excellent choice

By tinman-js-nO

from Surprise, AZ

Comments about Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer:

i've owned this mixer for about a year now, and i use it as the main input mixer in my studio. the mic pre's are really clean and warm sounding. the EQ is fantastic. 100mm are a really nice touch as is the insanely flexible Matrix in the main/monitor section. direct outs on each channel can be configured pre or post EQ by changing an internal jumper on each channel. i love this mixer! you can't beat it for the money!

Comments about Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer:

Well, no doubt for its price best you can get. Only missing an "air control" for each sub group as the Mackie 32R, but not essential.May be you need certain time to adjust your eyes for the way how faders control and group/L/R assigned are placed (opposite to Mackie), but it is worthy.

Sound Man

By Wushulee

from Connecticut

Comments about Allen & Heath GL2400-24 Live Console Mixer:

This is my first and last professional mixer. This mixer is so crisp and clean. The pre-amps are very clean and natural sounding. Just listening to music playback gives you the feeling that the singer was right in front of you singing "live ". There's so much bells and whistles and configurations which makes it very flexible in any situation. The " MATRIX " on it is awesome. I haven't used the Matrix yet but just reading about it is a big asset. The 2 "stereo " channels actually is doubled if you look at the rear of the console there are total of 4 stereo 1/4" inputs with individual gain controls. This is an "affordable" high end console. Just buy this and you won't need any other mixer.
