No reviews


The Allen & Heath ZED-24 is a small-format, 24-channel analog mixer offering versatile I/O and a user-friendly workflow for use in home and project studio recording, houses of worship, and live sound reinforcement. The 16 mono channels feature Neutrik XLR mic and 1/4" line inputs, DuoPre preamps with phantom power and bountiful gain, 1/4" insert points, and 3-band EQ, while the four stereo channels have 1/4" inputs and 2-band EQ. All channels are equipped with long-throw 100mm faders, solo and mute buttons, and independent aux send knobs.

The four aux sends are ideal for routing to floor monitors and outboard time-based effects. A USB 1.1 port delivers 2-channel send and return capabilities via a Mac or Windows computer. There are stereo and mono main outputs in addition to alt and headphone outputs, and dual 12-segment LED meters that clearly indicate your master output level. Patch additional stereo sources into the RCA stereo return and 2-track inputs, then route them to the stereo bus, or mix them into the stereo channels. The stereo RCA output is handy for recording your mix to an external device such as a cassette deck or computer soundcard.
