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.

FEATURES
  • 4 mic/line, 2 with Class A FET high impedance
  • Neutrik mic XLR
  • Neutrik 1/4" jacks
  • 3-band EQ with MusiQ

    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.

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

          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.

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

          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.

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

            I love the compact size, the quiet operation and the adjustable effects. I use this when I perform solo with an acoustic guitar, a hollow body electric, a Shure 55 mic and a Meinl electronic kick bass pedal. I use Yamaha MSR250 powered speakers and the system sounds very warm and natural. The built in effects allow me to leave my other effects home. Besides live performances, I use this mixer for home recording with a Tascam DP-008. Very quiet and clean. I got this to replace an aging Mackie 1402. I hear a definite improvement in sound quality.

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

              I side-stepped to this unit after using a Mackie 1402 for 10 years.

              Major assets of this mixer for me are:

              - Small size - particularly the shallow depth. This mixer is less physically awkward with all my cramped, hastily improvised stage setups.
              - IEC Power Socket - lack of this is a major liability with all the cheaper small mixers in my opinion. (I really hate those awkward, dedicated external power supplies...)
              - Rugged construction - this unit feels like a rugged piece of gear (the cheaper boards feel much more toy-like)
              - Sound - sounds very nice to me - mixes well - adds a slight bit of desirable character perhaps. No spending half an hour messing around trying to find a setting that doesn't sound lousy.

              I do miss certain user-friendly aspects of the Mackie 1402, like the way using a single input would default to mono and the generous gain in the line inputs.

              Overall I'm happy, though. No regrets, going a bit over over budget. Like they say: quality is remembered, long after price is forgotten.

                  Took this right to the gig right after UPS delivered it and left my Mackie at home!Much quieter and the EQ is actually functional,unlike Mackie products.You pay a little more,but from the moment you take it out of the box,it's obvious this is a better made product than anything Mackie has produced in a long time.If you don't care about what you sound like,than buy a Beringer and save some money over the Mackie mixers.If quality,reliability and great sound are important,I strongly recommend Allen and Heath or Soundcraft boards.That's what the pros use.
