OVERVIEW

Small-format mulitpurpose USB-equipped mixer with 10 inputs and built-in effects.

The ZED-10FX is an amazing, compact desktop mixer, ideal for small band mixing. It is ultra portable for carrying to the gig, and can be used for recording live or in the studio. Guitars can be plugged in directly to the mixer using the specially designed high-impedance inputs, while the mixer has two stereo inputs for MP3/CD players or keyboards. It is also equipped with professional XLR main stereo outputs and a flexible monitoring section with headphone and speaker feed outputs. Unlike it's sibling, the ZED-10, the ZED-10FX also boasts a set of fabulous effects to give shimmering reverbs and enhance your sound.

The ZED-10FX is great for live mixing. The layout makes it very simple to use and easy to achieve a great sound. It can be used for recording a live show, and can also be used for an audio project at home that you can build up track by track using the USB digital audio interface.

The flexibility, quality, and price-point of this mixer makes it stand out from the crowd. You can plug your guitars or instruments straight into the class A discrete FET high impedance inputs, it can accommodate up to four microphones, two stereo sources with MP3 player compatibility, and separate 2-track record outputs. It also has a stereo playback input for 2-track replay or perhaps interval music from a CD player, XLR main stereo outputs with inserts, comprehensive monitoring with headphones, and separate monitor speaker outputs, 48V microphone phantom power, DI level switching for sub mixing, and last but not least, the same digital effects algorithms as those used on Allen & Heath's flagship digital consoles costing 150 times as much.

  • Neutrik mic XLR
  • Neutrik 1/4" jacks

      Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-10FX 10-Channel USB Mixer with Effects:

      Previously had a Yamaha MG124CX Stereo Mixer with which I was very happy. had to sell it during a financially motivated "down-scaling of music related toys personal sales event". (-: decided to upgrade this time around to the Allen and Heath ZED 10fx. Wow. this is an impressive piece of recording gear. it is obviously intended for serious recording applications. just having it in my home studio makes me want to up my game and take my music more seriously. this is one of those rare cases where everything the manufacturer brags about in its description of the product is true. highly recommeded.

      Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-10FX 10-Channel USB Mixer with Effects:

      Every time I think I've exhausted all the functions of this tiny wonder, something new pops up and I realize it has yet another great function. This is the best small format mixer you can get for the money. Absolutely NO wiggle on the knobs. Great programmable effects. Can be rack mounted as well, but that takes a little more effort. The killer feature though are the TWO high Z inputs (no DI box required) and the recessed gain buttons in the rear for either boosting a few channels and/or reducing the overall outputs.
      Can be transported in a laptop bag. A ton of great routing options and as an interface. I record to an iPad.
      Great mixer and would definitely purchase another (possibly more channels) if this one ever breaks.

        Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-10FX 10-Channel USB Mixer with Effects:

        This mixing board makes almost any mic sound great! A&H EQ's are wonderful! User's manual is easy to understand and clear, with nice illustrations. This board is everything I'd expect out of an A&H mixing board, and is small enough for use on my personal computer. On-board effects are very nice, and easy to manipulate with the buttons on the mixing board. It's wonderful for recording without latency in headphones. It's very capable of pushing any (pre-recorded) sound you want down the line during a Skype or FaceTime call. The USB Stereo channel-2 is wonderful to push my music library through my stereo system using monitor out with nice tweaks over the HF and LF bands for that clarity without pushing too much of either highs or lows in the stereo mix. No more tweaking the physical knobs on my stereo system for each "CD." My only regret is that I hadn't bought the A&H ZED 10FX sooner. I could have had this audio experience all this time. I also own an A&H MixWizard 16:2 for live performance, so when I looked for a mixing board for my personal computer, A&H with USB capabilities was the best choice for me. I love this little mixing board.

        Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-10FX 10-Channel USB Mixer with Effects:

        This is an excellent mixer/interface with 8 inputs, I believe, total. It is easy to use from the get-go and has good sound output. I use it both for mics and occasionally instruments to sent their sound to speakers and as an interface for sending sound to a computer for recording music tracks. I actually have bought 2 of these mixers for different locations. They are study and so far, knock on wood, I have not had a single problem with them in 2-3 years or more of using them.

              We're using this unit in our recording studio as a means to channel multiple sources such as percussion instruments, keyboard, stringed instruments onto one recorded track on our recording device. This unit works great to that end. We haven't really touched all of its capabilities yet like the USB connection to a PC but feel reasonably sure it will live up to all of our expectations. We use the ZED-12FX for live performances which is why we selected the 10FX for the studio based on its delivery, ease of operation, durability and reliability. You can't go wrong with the 10FX...we are very pleased with this unit.

              I've been playing for decades, finally decided to get a mixer for recording and live performances. Based on my requirements, Musician's Friend talked me out of a cheap Peavey and into this fine little board. It's fairly intuitive, and within a couple of days I had laid tracks down in Garageband and played them back wirelessly via Airport Express using iTunes. Not bad for a guy in his 50s who never did any of that before! Well worth the price charged, and I'm grateful for the helpful advice. Sound quality is very good, even better when I upgraded to Mogami cables.
