Overview

Korg's ZERO4 is an 4-channel all-in-one "core station" designed for live performance artists, remix producers, and serious computer musicians providing a digital mixer, audio I/O, MIDI controller, and effect processor all in a single unit. Each channel can be switched between sources such as a turntable, CD player, microphone, computer, instrument, MIDI controller, or MIDI controller + audio to implement a sophisticated live mixing setup with the simplicity of a FireWire connection. This gives you an incredibly powerful and flexible tool designed specifically for live performance and remix production.

Designed for high-quality digital and analog audio
ZERO LIVE CONTROL MIXER delivers truly professional-spec audio. It supports 24-bit 48 kHz high-resolution audio as standard, and can support up to 24-bit 192 kHz audio that's equivalent to DVD audio fidelity. Along with the digital domain, analog components such as the input/output circuitry and power supply have been designed with painstaking attention to high-quality sound. The internal ±18 volt power supply design delivers plenty of headroom and excellent audio quality. The mic preamps are an ultra-low impedance design by Peter Watts, a veteran designer of numerous professional mixers throughout his tenure at the Trident Corporation in the UK and as chief designer and vice president for product development at Mackie Designs in the USA. Finally, the power supply is a universal design that does not require an AC adapter, ensuring that the world-traveling professional can get to work immediately, assured of the highest level of performance.

EQ Variety
The EQ Selector is a completely new idea, providing an EQ section with eleven different simulation types. They cover needs ranging from corrective equalization to boldly creative sound-shaping, giving you a variety of EQ responses and curves, filter characteristics, and even isolator modeling that can be switched independently for each channel as needed. The stereo four-channel ZERO4 provides one unit that is shared by all channels.

FireWire control over audio and MIDI
ZERO LIVE CONTROL MIXER contains a FireWire interface that lets you process and mix audio sources digitally, at the same time as performing MIDI control. Since ZERO LIVE CONTROL MIXER contains everything else you need (audio interface, mixer, effect processor, MIDI controller), setup is simple, making it an extremely convenient choice for the mobile computer-based professional.

A full complement of effects
One particular advantage of the ZERO series is its powerful effect system. On the stereo four-channel ZERO4, there are Insert effects for independent use on each channel, plus a Master effect connected to sampler/effect buss.


The ZERO4 also contains a loop sampler that can synchronize to the BPM. This makes it easy to sample or play back loops (or one-shot samples) in perfect time with the current tempo, giving you the flexibility for complex mixes or dub mixing.

A complete MIDI control surface
By using the dedicated "ZERO Edit" software you can freely assign MIDI messages to the faders, knobs, buttons, and toggle switches. This allows you to use the abundant hardware on the ZERO Mixers to control soft synths, DAWs, effects processors and much more. Since each channel of the mixer can be assigned to different functions you can be mixing the audio from your computer with one channel while adjusting MIDI parameters with another.

Professional-level hardware design
The crossfader of the stereo four-channel ZERO4 uses a two-rail design for excellent durability. The compact chassis is made of aluminum alloy and steel for portability and durability. The periphery of the control knobs is illuminated in two colors depicting audio mode and MIDI mode, ensuring accurate control on stage or in dim lighting.

    Great Features, Poor Sound Quality

    By Robert

    from Lakeland, FL

    I have recently purchased a zero 4 line mixer and I love all the effects and all the I/O options; the ergonomics is brilliant. My issues with this mixer is sound is brittle and thin. The firewire output is weak in signal gain into the computer. My little stanton mixer sounds better in comparison. If you want a do it all mixer-this is a good buy, though don't be surpised if your disappointed with the sound quality of the gain of the mixer into the software application.

    Awesome Mixer, Fat sounds, and great sound fx.................

    By DJ Santos

    from Redlands

    I am a certified recording engineer and I know a good mixer from bad. This mixer is amazing. Professional grade inputs and outputs. XLR, RCA, and 1/2 inch. I'm not sure why they added an XLR mic input with phantom power but its there if you decide to record with this mixer i guess. If you want to be creative, this mixer if for you. You have the option from each channel effex and or the master output. The firewire input is very stable. No problems at all. 11 different Switchable EQ's to choose from. There is so much to talk about. Its amazing. Cons? well I could say the price was a little much. But It is worth every cent.
