Great for the studio
With its FireWire connectivity and its versatile I/O options, the Allen & Heath ZED-R16 is a great mixer for any high-level project studio. It can handle 18 tracks of FireWire at a time, giving each channel its own track within your DAW - either pre-EQ or post-EQ. Two aux buses can feed headphone amps in the studio or FX sends, and the built-in condenser talkback microphone can be routed to either the aux outputs or studio outputs, adding flexibility. The ZED-R16 also features MIDI-assignable faders and a MIDI transport section, giving it premium control surface functionality.
Also suited for the stage
Take the Allen & Heath ZED-R16 between the studio and the stage seamlessly. Its two pre and two post aux buses work great for FX sends or for wedge foldback live. What's more, its complete EQ section and great-sounding microphone preamplifiers, coupled with its FireWire functionality, make it a great choice for house of worship, educational, and corporate environments - just feed the PA system via the main XLR outputs and then hook up a FireWire cable to your computer for instant recording. Mix in analog, record in digital!
High-quality microphone preamplifiers
The ZED-R16's preamplifiers have been carefully designed with a symmetrical, ultra-linear circuit. Low-noise transistors are used in the front end and active feedback is employed in both phases before the differential amplifier. The result? Super-low distortion, low noise, a high common-mode rejection ratio, and simply transparent and beautiful sounding preamplifiers.
Fully-featured EQ section
Complete with two swept, fully parametric mids and high and low shelving, the ZED-R16 has a sophisticated equalization section. In fact, its EQ's design shares much with Allen & Heath's leading pro touring mixers.
Flexible output section
The ZED-R16 has two signal paths for monitoring: an output for main control room monitors and outputs for an alternative set of monitors for checking mixes. The control room mix can follow either of the two main analog outputs or the digital main mix, allowing access to all main audio outputs. What's more, in addition to its Firewire input and output, the ZED-R16 has 4 ADAT optical sockets. The I/O routing on the ZED-R16 is identical for the Firewire channels and the ADAT optical connection. With a combination of panel switches, the mixer is capable of an incredible 26 simultaneous inputs and outputs. Feed the ZED-R16 from ADAT lightpipe equipment, or record directly out from 16 channels to 2 ADAT machines, or to another sound card.
Software-ready with MIDI-assignable controls
ZED-R16 is equipped with a host of MIDI control options. As well as the four dedicated MIDI faders, 12 rotary controllers, 12 switches, and five dedicated transport switches, all channel faders can also be switched to become MIDI faders. Use your faders to mix the live signal while recording via FireWire - then assign out the faders via MIDI for digital mixdown - the ZED-R16 opens up a host of possibilities for studio use while maintaining a familiar, live-friendly analog format. In addition, the ZED-R16 comes with Cakewalk SONAR LE music production software, so you can get recording right away.
