Overview

The Allen & Heath ZED 24 audio mixer has a fantastic pedigree: nearly 40 years of making mixing desks for professional sound engineers. The ZED 24 mixer's audio circuitry is based on years of continual development and refinement. All the elements within the mixer have been perfected to insure the very best sound quality possible.

This is a mixer with broad appeal, from entry-level to professionals. You get fantastic sound, rugged build quality, and imaginative features. The ZED 24 mixer is equally happy running your gig on stage, recording live, or mixing down in your studio at home.

The features are incredibly advanced for a mixer at this level. The ZED 24 has 23 independent sources to the mix, 10 independent outputs, 4 aux sends (2 pre and 2 post fade), a USB send and return for PC or Mac recording, playback and effects, a unique dual stereo input capability and some very advanced monitoring facilities.

In fact, the ZED 24 mixer is so packed with great features that you'd think it would cost much, much more! In addition to 16 mono channels there are 4 stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on jack sockets and the ability to take additional stereo inputs from phono sockets or from the USB audio input, enabling you to control and route any source.

The ZED 24 mixer features a responsive 3-band swept-mid EQ, with an optimized slope for equalizing individual instruments. The ZED 24 also features high quality DuoPre pre-amps, which use a two stage design, with carefully controlled amounts of gain in each stage, offering lots of headroom. Allen & Heath includes the excellent SONAR LE digital audio workstation software for Windows with the ZED 24 multipurpose mixer. With audio and MIDI multitrack recording and mixing capability, effects plug-ins and editing features, SONAR LE enables the ZED 24 audio mixer to become a live sound, recording, or home recording mixer.

I just bought this mixer for a 4 piece rock band and all I can say is "wow". Set aside just how beautiful the mixer looks when you take it out of the box and you'll notice that the board is solid as a rock. Weighs about 20lbs and it feels like it could take a beating. I upgraded from a Yamaha board and the clarity and crispness that this board gives off is amazing. The sound is professional level and the layout is very easy to work with. For live shows and recording on the go this board can't be beat.

Sounds ok, lacks routing. I hate it when I have to use this mixer to mix a show.
Mixer works well enough. It has 24 channels and no groups, what the heck was this board made to do? No pre / post switch for aux 1 and 2, only two main outs.
I used it for mobile live audio work so it gets moved all the time and it still works.
I would never buy this product.

        Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

        I didn't buy this here, but at the bankrupcy auction of an evangelist. It hadn't had the best of handling, but replacing a few knobs and a scary looking power cord made it a nearly beautiful piece of equipment; except for a few dings on the control surface and case. The origional owner just jammed his equipment in the van and never heared about ATA cases. Its appearance scared all the bidders, so I got it for a rediculusly small cost; but when plugged in it worked perfectly in spite of the obvious abuse.

        I have a weekly gig where I set up in a cancer patient's hospital room to weekly record his podcasts, and I can wheel the whole kit, 2 microphones, the mixer, headphones and active monitor speakers into the room on a single cart. I need no external signal processing with this unit.

        It is my standby FOH mixer when my other mixers (An Allen and Heath PA-20, and Venue 48,) are busy.

        I like it and give it four and a half stars.

          Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

          Interesting that some of the toggles (phantom power and signal path modifiers)are sized and placed so you need a pen or a stylus to change the position. I suppose you wouldn't want that type of toggle to be out there where it would get nudged. Pretty good bang for the buck. Haven't tried recording in the studio with it yet, but it sounds darn good, live. One thing: It seems to take more power to achieve the same amplitude with my PA system.

          ZED 24 Delivers

          By John Wirth

          from Charlotte, NC

          Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

          I purchased an A&H ZED 24 to replace an ART mixer that was showing its age. The difference in sound quality was obvious as soon as we powered up the ZED 24. Tremendous headroom in the inputs, very clean, excellent EQ and with 16 inserts we have the ability to add plenty of outboard effects or feed individual channels to a multi-track DAW using the "insert as Direct-out" trick. The USB capability is a nice feature but is limited to feeding only the two main channels of the mix. But this is a great tool for a quick way to record practices and live performances. It gives you the opportunity to easily hear what the audience will hear. Great product. Glad I bought it. It meets or exceeds all of our expectations.

          Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

          Overall it is built like a tank, sounds awesome, love the usb feature and all the xlr inputs.
          Love the features of this mixer but kinda wish it had sub channels and another couple of outs.
          Very well built and sounds great. I have been using this mixer for about 3 months and would buy another.
          Good value for a mixer this size

          Experience To Believe It

          By Nitnub-ksaGh

          from NW Ohio

          Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

          As a musician who always worked through Peavey, Yamaha, Mackie mix boards and a few behringers, I seldom found much real difference in the sound or setting up a good mix. ZEach seemed to have one or more shortcomings that you deal with and work around. It's just what you do to optimize what you have. Recently I filled in for a well equipped and funded local band. They had this mixer with Crown XLS and JBL's. I assisted in setting up and getting the mix. As a micing drummer, I often become involved with getting the sound right so I can play as ussual with confidence that I don't splash out the sound and I lay tightly in the main mix. When it's right, you play better.I can state with total certainty that this mixer is miles away from anything I have ever used before. The contol is so tight and accurate tiny moves make needed differences in the mix. Eq's are true and do shape the wave. Pre and Post aux sends are incredibly useful in setting up monitor mixes as well as effects. It is difficult to express the true difference this level of quality can make, but not hard to appreciate it when you perform. I have determined that I will begin my new savings account as a dedicated account to get one of my own for our band. Yes it makes that big of a difference.

          from Puerto Rico

          Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

          i have mine for a several months now and it is a mean machine, from the preamps to the usb jack you feel quality at its best. each knob, each fader are carefully calibrated to the tiniest of the adjustmens I mean you want 1db you got it you want less than that you can have it too. road ready constructed with sealed pots and faders bright led iluminations and a sort of options, the only thing I miss are aditional buses for comodities such as sub mixing or for FOHalthough you can use the auxes for that.

          Great Board for the Buck!!!

          By Happy

          from Somewhere in middle USA

          Comments about Allen & Heath ZED-24 Mixer:

          Had mine for several years now and had no problems. The USB connectivity works great for recording and playback, unfortunately the board driver will only record at 16bit though, but unless you are doing ultra-high end production (and if you are you wouldn't be using this board anyway) you won't notice it. Between rehearsals and performances, this board gets used anywhere from 2 to 8 hours a day, six days a week, and has never missed a beat. If you are looking for a board with lots of channels and Aux's you won't find a better deal. I spent 3 months researching and I'm glad I did.
