The Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixing Desk is the biggest analogue mixer we have in hire stocks. We’ve had many Allen & Heath desks in hire stock over the years, and always found them to be reliable.
The ZED-24 features 16 mono mic/line input channels and 4 stereo line input channels. Each channel has a 3-Band EQ with MusicQ and a 100mm ALPS fader for precise level control. All microphone inputs have DuoPre pre-amps with 69dB of range.
An connection between mixing desk and computer is now a common requirement for live sound applications. The ZED-24 connects effortlessly to a computer via USB. You select the USB routing and the device on computer and that’s it. All done.
