The three new mixers are from the ZED analogue console range, including the first ZEDi hybrid mixer / interface. The ZED-6, ZED-6FX and ZEDi-8 are designed with all the features required by musicians, recording artists and for AV work, in a compact, portable format.
All the new models feature 2 mono channels with separate XLR and TRS jack sockets and 2 Stereo channels. The mono channels include DI high impedance circuitry for the jack sockets, allowing guitars to be plugged straight into the mixer without the hassle and expense of carrying separate DI boxes.
The ZED-6FX includes a new in-house designed FX system which encompasses multi-FX models, combining reverbs, delays, doublers, chorusing, and other modulators to create a dynamic and varied suite of studio quality sound effects.
The ZEDi-8 combines a compact mixer with a 24bit 96kHz 2×2 USB interface, providing recording and playback to a Mac or PC or to an iOS device (using a Camera Connection Kit), with flexible source routing options. ZEDi-8 is bundled with Cubase LE music production software and the Cubasis LE mobile music production app.
Styled in amolded chassis and metal front panel, all the new ZED models also feature 2-band EQ, 60mm smooth travel master mix faders, channel monitoring and 48V phantom power. Unique in this type of product is the individual channel PCB construction with nutted pots and a robust internal, universal voltage power supply for extended life in the toughest environments.
