covers with mains connected. To ensure your safety the mains earth is connected to the chassis through the
power lead. Do not remove this connection.
To avoid the risk of fire, replace the mains fuse only with the correct value and type as indicated in the
connector panel.
GENERAL PRECAUTIONS
Your MixWizard console is ruggedly constructed to withstand the rigours of the road whether
location mixing or live gigging. However, you will extend the life of the console and preserve its
cosmetics by applying these simple common sense precautions.
Prevent damage to the controls and cosmetics by avoiding drinks spillage, tobacco ash, smoke,
and exposure to rain and moisture. If the console becomes wet, switch off and remove mains
power immediately. Allow to dry out thoroughly before using again.
Protect from excessive dirt, dust, heat and vibration when operating and storing.
Avoid the use of chemicals, abrasives or solvents. The control panel is best cleaned with a soft
brush and dry lint-free cloth. The faders, switches and potentiometers are lubricated for life. The
use of electrical lubricants on these parts is not recommended.
TRANSPORTING THE CONSOLE
The console may be transported as a free-standing unit or mounted in a rack or flightcase. Ensure
that the connector pod is secured in place with the locking screws fitted to prevent movement. Use
adequate packing if you need to ship the unit.

INSTALLING THE CONSOLE
The Mix Wizard Series features the ALLEN & HEATH Quick Change Connector (QCC) system. The rear
connector pod may be hinged and locked into either of two positions: Rear connectors for desktop operation
with the control panel sloped at a convenient 15 degrees, or underside connectors for 19" rack mounting in a
compact 10U space. The connector position can be easily changed at any time to fit your application.
To
change
the
position remove the
crosshead
locking
screw on each side,
swing the connector
pod into position, and
refit the two screws
PRECAUTION :
Do not transport or carry the
console with the locking screws
removed.
Do not attempt to remove the
connector pod from the console.
19” RACK MOUNTING
Mount the console in
the rack using 4x M6 bolts
each side for maximum
strength. We recommend
you fit the bolts with plastic
cup washers to protect the
panel, and they look good...
These should be available
from the supplier of the rack
unit or a good hardware
store.
FLIGHTCASING
The console can be easily
flightcased in either
connector mode. Provide
the dimensions shown here
to your flightcase supplier.
DESKTOP OPERATION
The console is fitted with rubber
feet to ensure it does not slip or
scratch the work surface. The
control panel is angled at 15
degrees for operating convenience.

Refer to the SAFETY WARNING on page 5 of this Guide.
Check that the correct mains lead with moulded plug has been
supplied with your console. Read and understand the warnings
and instructions printed on the rear panel and reproduced here.
The power supply accommodates mains voltages within the
range 100-240V without changing any fuses or settings.
It is standard practice to turn connected power amplifiers down
or off before switching the console on or off. Ensure that the
IEC mains plug is pressed fully into the rear panel socket before
switching on.
EARTHING
The connection to earth (ground) in an audio system is important for two reasons:
1. SAFETY - To protect the operator from high voltage shock associated with the AC mains supply
feeding the system, and
2. AUDIO PERFORMANCE QUALITY - To minimise the effect of earth (ground) loops which result
in audible hum and buzz, and to shield the audio signals from interference.
For safety it is important that all equipment earths are connected to mains earth so that exposed
metal parts are prevented from carrying high voltage which can injure or even kill the operator. It is
recommended that the sound engineer check the continuity of the safety earth from all points in the
system including microphone bodies, guitar strings, multicore cases, equipment panels ...
The same earth is also used to shield audio cables from external interference such as the hum
fields associated with power transformers, lighting dimmer buzz, and computer radiation. Problems
arise when the signal sees more than one path to mains earth. An ‘earth loop’ (ground loop)
results causing current to flow between the different earth paths. This condition is usually detected
as a mains frequency audible hum or buzz.
To ensure safe and trouble-free operation please observe the following:
x Do not remove the earth connection from the console mains plug. The console chassis is
connected to mains earth through the power cable to ensure your safety. Audio 0V is connected to
the console chassis internally. If problems are encountered with earth loops operate the audio
‘ground lift’ switches on connected equipment accordingly, or disconnect the cable screens at one
end, usually at the destination. It is useful to carry ground lift cable adapters such as short XLR
male to female leads with pin 1 disconnected.
x Avoid running audio cables next to mains, computer or lighting cables, or near thyristor
dimmer and power supply units. If unavoidable, cross these at right angles.
x Use low impedance sources such as microphones rated at 200 ohms or less to reduce
susceptibility to interference. The console outputs are designed to operate at very low impedance
to minimise interference problems.
x Use balanced connections where possible as these provide further immunity by cancelling
out interference that may be picked up on long cable runs. To connect an unbalanced source to a
balanced console input, link the cold input (XLR pin 3 or jack ring) to 0V earth (XLR pin 1 or jack
sleeve) at the console. To connect a balanced console output to an unbalanced destination, link
the cold output to 0V earth at the console.
x Use professional quality cables and connectors and check for correct wiring and reliable
solder joints.
x If you are not sure ... Have your system checked by a competent engineer, or contact your
local Allen & Heath agent for advice.

PLUGGING UP THE SYSTEM
The Mix Wizard series uses professional grade 3-pin XLR, 1/4" TRS jack and RCA PHONO
sockets. The applications diagrams on page 26 illustrate typical equipment interconnections. To
ensure best performance, we recommend that you use high quality audio cables and connectors,
and take time to check for reliable and accurate cable assembly. It is well known that most audio
system failures are due to faulty interconnecting leads.
CONNECTOR PINOUTS
CONNECTORS, CABLES AND THEORY
All input and output XLR connectors are 3-wire differentially balanced. These have 3 connector
pins: pin 1 = ground (cable screen), pin 2 = signal +ve, pin 3 = signal -ve
All the master output jack connectors are 3-wire impedance balanced. These have 3 connector
pins: tip = signal +ve, ring = signal -ve, sleeve = ground (cable screen).
Avoid reversing +ve and -ve on balanced connections as this will result in out of phase signals
(reverse polarity) causing signal cancellation effects. This situation is particularly common in multimicrophone mixing.
For live work where long cables runs are required, balanced interconnections should be used.
Short interconnections between more affordable 2-wire (signal, ground) unbalanced effects units or
signal processors and mixing console may be utilised. Refer to the following diagram for
unbalanced to balanced connections.
DEALING WITH GROUND LOOPS, BUZZ AND INTERFERENCE
For optimum performance all audio signals should be referenced to a solid, noise-free earth point,
frequently referred to as the ‘star point’ or ‘clean earth’.
A ground loop is created when the signal has more than one path to ground (earth). Should you
experience hum or buzz caused by ground loops, check first that each piece of equipment has its
own separate path to ground. If so, operate ground lift switches on connected equipment in
accordance with the instruction manuals. Alternatively disconnect the cable screen at the
destination end.
To avoid interference pickup keep audio cables away from mains power units and cables, thyristor
dimmer units or computer equipment. Where this cannot be avoided, cross the cables at right
angles to minimise interference.
CONNECTING CHANNEL INPUTS
Both microphone and line sources such as keyboards, replay devices and effects processors can
be plugged into either the jack or XLR input for convenience. Do not connect to both at the same
time. The channel accepts a wide 70dB range of source levels. The balanced 3-wire input
provides the best immunity to interference pickup on long cable runs.
WZ16:2DX AND WZ12:2DX USER GUIDE

PLUGGING UP THE SYSTEM (CONT’D)
CONNECTING CHANNEL INPUTS (CONT’D)
CONNECTING TO CHANNEL INSERTS
You do not need to plug anything into the channel insert socket for normal operation. You may,
however wish to insert a signal processor such as a compressor/limiter or noise gate into the
channel signal path to prevent excessive peaks or to cut down source noise. The insert lets you do
this by breaking the signal path after the input pre-amp and before the EQ. Use a Y-lead or
suitable TRS jack lead to connect to the external processor. The insert operates at 0dBu line level.
Adjust the processor input and output levels for optimum signal level.
CHANNEL DIRECT OUTPUTS
The channel direct output taps the signal off post-fader (pre-fader if the internal link option is
changed) for connection to external processing or recording equipment. This is ideal for multitrack
recording during a live performance. Here each channel can be recorded on a separate track for
mixdown later. The output is impedance balanced on TRS jack. This means that you get the
benefit of interference immunity when connecting to outboard equipment with balanced inputs.
You can, of course, also connect to unbalanced equipment. The signal operates at nominal 0dBu
line level.
L-R M AIN OUTPUTS
These 3-wire balanced outputs on XLR connectors operate at a nominal +4dBu to drive
professional equipment over long cable runs without interference pickup. Connect to an amplifier,
of suitable power rating for the venue, to drive the PA loudspeakers. Or connect to a 2-track
recorder for studio or location recording.
WZ16:2DX AND WZ12:2DX USER GUIDE
13
PLUGGING UP THE OUTPUTS
LR Mix Inserts
Use these sockets if you wish to insert external signal processing equipment into the L-R mix postmix amp and pre-L-R fader. This lets you check the effect of the inserted equipment using the
console headphones or local monitor. For live sound it is common to insert graphic equalisers to
adjust for the room acoustics. In recording you could plug in a compressor to prevent unexpected
peaks overloading the recording. Use a suitable stereo jack lead or Y-adaptor for tip = send, ring =
return.
LR Main Outputs
These outputs are 3-wire balanced XLR operating at a nominal +4dBu to drive professional
equipment over long cable runs without interference pickup. You can, however, connect to 2wire unbalanced equipment inputs by linking signal - (cold) to ground (XLR pin3 to pin1).
Connect to an amplifier of suitable power rating for the venue to drive the PA loudspeakers.
Or connect to a 2-track recorder for studio or location recording.
Stage Monitor and Cue Sends
Set up a pre-fade aux mix to
send a monitor or cue mix to the
performers. The aux outputs
are 3-wire impedance balanced
for interference rejection when
plugged into balanced
equipment inputs. You could
insert a graphic EQ between the
output and the amplifier for
monitor feedback control
2-Track Replay
Plug your 2-track recorder into a
stereo return to monitor your
recording, or for replay over the PA.
The return can also be used for
intermission replay from a CD player
or similar.
WZ16:2DX AND WZ12:2DX USER GUIDE
Effects Send and Return
Set up a post-fade aux mix to send
channel signals to an external effects
device such as reverb or delay.
Return the processed signal to the mix
by plugging the device output into ST1
or ST2 stereo return, or into a channel
input. These inputs can operate
balanced or unbalanced. For a mono
return simply plug into the L input
leaving R unplugged. The setting of
the channel aux send control
determines how much effect is added
to the signal.

The HF and LF bands have a shelving response which means that all frequencies beyond the
turning point frequency are affected, HF = 12kHz, LF = 60Hz. Use HF to add sparkle or to reduce
source hiss. Use LF to add punch to the bass instruments. Used with the LO-CUT filter you can
tailor the low frequency response exactly as you require.
The two mid frequency bands have a peak/dip (bell shaped) response which means that the
maximum boost or cut occurs at the selected (centre) frequency. The centre frequency can be
swept over a wide range using the SWEEP controls. MF1 = 500Hz to 15kHz, MF2 = 35Hz to 1kHz.
Use the mids to add warmth or presence to the sound or to notch out problem resonances that can

SELECT – This switch is used, in conjunction with the LED column, to choose the effects programs on auxes 5
and 6 in turn. For each aux, the select switch steps through the eight programs and then OFF before cycling
back to the first program of the eight.
BANK – This switch and associated LED selects the aux 5 effect or the aux 6 effect.
MIDI FUNCTIONS
The MIDI in socket provides the capability for selecting between FX programs via MIDI. MIDI program change
numbers 0 to 15 correspond to effects programs 1 to 16.
MIDI Channel Change - The MIDI channel of the mixer may be selected by holding down the BANK key on
power up. Whilst continuing to hold the BANK key, use the SELECT key to step through channels 1-16. The
FX1-8 LEDs will light in sequence to indicate MIDI channels, then the BANK LED will light in conjunction with
these to show 9-16. After cycling through MIDI channels 1 to 16, the processor will then turn all channels on
and then all off. Release both BANK and SELECT keys when the required MIDI status is selected. The BANK
LED will flash twice to confirm channel change. The factory default is channel 1.
RESET - Holding down the SELECT key during power up performs a hard RESET. The 8 FX program LEDs
will flash in sequence followed by the BANK LED flashing off then on. This restores the effects programs to the
factory default settings.
RESTORE – Hold down the BANK and SELECT keys while powering up the mixer. The 1-8 program LEDs will
flash in sequence followed by the BANK led flashing twice to confirm the operation. This restores the MIDI
channel and effects programs to the factory default settings.

Note that the range values shown need to be converted to the 0-127 MIDI equivalent.
Example:
To change the feedback parameter on the Phaser effect. First select the phaser effect on the WZ mixer. The MIDI string should then be generated as follows;
Bn,16,xx Where Bn defines the string as a control change instruction and n=channel voice message. 16 is CC#22 in hexadecimal and xx is the new value in the range 0-127.

OPTIONS
The MixWizard Series WZ16:2 and WZ12:2DX have a versatile architecture designed to satisfy
most live sound or recording applications you may encounter without modification. However, the
following internal options are offered to provide alternative settings for those applications that may
demand them. These options require resoldering of circuit board links and should only be carried
out by competent technical personnel. Further information is available from your service agent or
the SERVICE MANUAL.
PHANTOM POWER DISABLE
It is perfectly safe to connect non-phantom powered sources such as dynamic microphones to
powered XLR sockets providing that balanced leads and sources are used. The +48V supply is
current limited through 6.8k ohm resistors to each XLR to prevent damage. However, you can
disable phantom power to selected channels by cutting out links on the rear connector circuit
assembly. This work should be referred to your service agent.
ST1, ST2 INPUT SENSITIVITY
The stereo return inputs are set for nominal low level -10dBV operation as is common with much of
the external equipment available today. The console level controls let you adjust for varying input
levels. Most outboard equipment include output level trims. If, however, you wish to change the
sensitivity to high level +4dBu the rear connector circuit can be reconfigured. This work should be
referred to your service agent.
AUX OUT AND A-B OUT BALANCE OPTION
These outputs are impedance balanced on TRS jack to provide interference rejection when
plugged into equipment with balanced inputs. It should not normally be necessary to fit the
electronic balance option available. This option also increases the output level to a nominal
+4dBu. Refer this work to your service agent.
CHANNEL PRE-FADE AUX SEND OPTIONS
The pre-fade sends are set post-EQ and post-ON as standard. However, link options on each
channel assembly allow pre-EQ and/or pre-ON if required. This is shown in the diagram below.
CHANNEL DIRECT OUTPUT SOURCE
The direct outputs are sourced post-fader as standard. A link option is available per channel to
select a pre-fade source. This is shown in the diagram below.
