SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
WARNINGS -
Read the following before proceeding :
CAUTION
ATTENTION: RISQUE DE CHOC ELECTRIQUE – NE PAS OUVRIR
Read instructions:
Retain these safety and operating instructions for future reference. Adhere to all warnings printed here
and on the console. Follow the operating instructions printed in this User Guide.
Do not remove cover:
Operate the console with its covers correctly fitted.
Power sources:
Connect the console to a mains power unit only of the type described in this User Guide and marked
on the rear panel. Use the power cord with sealed mains plug appropriate for your local mains supply as provided with the console. If the provided plug does not fit into your outlet consult your service
agent for assistance.
Power cord routing:
Route the power cord so that it is not likely to be walked on, stretched or pinched by items placed
upon or against it.
Grounding:
Do not defeat the grounding and polarisation means of the power cord plug. Do not remove or tamper with the ground connection in the power cord.
!
WARNING: This equipment must be earthed.
Water and moisture:
To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock do not expose the console to rain or moisture or use it in
damp or wet conditions. Do not place containers of liquids on it which might spill into any openings.
Ventilation:
Do not obstruct the ventilation slots or position the console where the air flow required for ventilation
is impeded. If the console is to be operated in a rack unit or flightcase ensure that it is constructed to
allow adequate ventilation.
Heat and vibration:
Do not locate the console in a place subject to excessive heat or direct sunlight as this could be a fire
hazard. Locate the console away from any equipment which produces heat or causes excessive vibration.
Servicing:
Switch off the equipment and unplug the power cord immediately if it is exposed to moisture, spilled
liquid, objects fallen into the openings, the power cord or plug become damaged, during lightning
storms, or if smoke, odour or noise is noticed. Refer servicing to qualified technical personnel only.
Installation:
Install the console in accordance with the instructions printed in this User Guide. Do not connect the
output of power amplifiers directly to the console. Use audio connectors and plugs only for their
intended purpose.

Allen & Heath
To prevent damage to the controls and cosmetics avoid placing heavy objects
on the control surface, scratching the surface with sharp objects, or rough
handling and vibration.
Protect from excessive dirt, dust, heat and vibration when operating and storing. Avoid tobacco ash, smoke, drinks spillage, 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.
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. The fader and potentiometer knobs may be removed for cleaning with a warm soapy solution. Rinse and allow to dry fully
before refitting them.
The console may be transported as a free-standing unit or mounted in a rack
or flightcase. Protect the controls from damage during transit. Use adequate
packing if you need to ship the unit.
To avoid damage to your hearing do not operate any sound system at excessively high volume. This applies particularly to close-to-ear monitoring such as
headphones and in-ear systems. Continued exposure to high volume sound
can cause frequency selective or wide range hearing loss.

ZED-12FX, 16FX & 22FX User Guide
INTRODUCTION TO THE ZED-12FX, 16FX & 22FX
The following is a technical overview of ZED, if you want to, please skip to the next section.
The Allen & Heath ZED series mixers have been carefully and lovingly designed in the beautiful county of Cornwall in the UK and is manufactured alongside a wide range of professional audio mixing consoles. Many of the components used in ZED are exactly the same as in the
larger Allen & Heath products and the construction methods are also very similar — utilising individual vertically mounted channel circuit
boards with each rotary control fixed with a metal nut to the front panel. This provides a very robust product that will resist damage and
give years of reliable use. It also makes servicing much easier should it be required, with the ability to remove one particular channel from
the mixer at a time, or easily change a fader.
The audio circuitry is based on years of continual development and refinement , the performance of all the elements within the mixer scrutinised and perfected to ensure the very best sound quality possible.
Multi-application:
ZED’s are great for live mixing! Their layout makes them very easy to use and the 100mm faders give much better control of the mix compared to most products at a similar price.
They are also great for recording, either a live show or an audio project at home can be built up track by track and studio monitor speakers
can be fed from the Alt Outputs.
ZED mixers are also ideal for teaching establishments, houses of worship, hotels and conference centres where their ease of use and robust
qualities make them a top choice.
Mic/Line Pre-amps:
Based on the pre-amps from the PA series, the ZED-12FX, 16FX & 22FX pre-amps use a two stage design, with carefully controlled amounts
of gain in each stage. When amplifying the signal from the XLR input, the gain range is huge (69dB of range to be exact) and is very evenly
distributed around the gain control, meaning better control of signal level. Most of the gain comes from the first stage, so unwanted noise is
kept to a minimum. There is no “pad” switch, or pad circuit — line level signals are simply plugged into the second stage of the pre-amp by
using the line input jack socket. This has the great advantage of lower noise when using the line input. (It is common to attenuate line level
signals, the amplify them back up again which can give more noise or hiss).
EQ:
The ZED series mixers are equipped with a 3-band equaliser circuit on each mono input and a 2-band EQ on the stereo channels. The frequency and response of each has been carefully chosen to give the maximum performance when using the EQ on a variety of sources.
AUX system:
Zed 12FX, 16FX & 22fX mixers have 4 Aux buses. 3 are used for connecting external equipment such as foldback stage monitors, or external effects processors, and one is used for the internal effects processor.
Effects Processor:
Zed-12FX, 16FX & 22FX mixers have a professional quality effects processor built in which uses our own effects algorithms developed by
our talented engineering staff at Allen & Heath. The effects range from classic reverbs, cascaded delay plus reverbs to shimmering flanger &
chorus effects. The different effects types are selected with a simple up/down button interface and the tempo of the delay settings can be
entered using the TAP button. Holding the TAP button allows the parameters of the effects to be adjusted. The audio signal to the DSP is
converted using 24 bit high dynamic range converters running at 48kHz sample rate, ensuring low noise, low distortion, transparent effects.
Mono and Stereo Channels:
One of the great things about the ZED series is the number and variety of things you can plug in. In addition to the mono channels there are
three stereo channels, each with a main stereo input on jack sockets, two of them have the ability to take additional stereo inputs from
phono sockets, the third can take the USB audio input. Flexibility gives you control.
USB:
Getting audio to and from a computer easily is now a common requirement for live sound and music production. The way we have implemented this on ZED is super-flexible and super-easy! No longer do you need to fiddle around the back of your computer to get to the
soundcard inputs, only to find that the levels are all wrong and noisy. Just plug in a USB lead to your ZED, select the USB routing on the
mixer and the device on your computer and that’s it! Quality audio to and from your PC or MAC.
As you can tell, we’re very proud of this product we hope you like it too.

Standard 3-Pin XLR socket wired as Pin 1=Chassis, Pin 2=hot
(+), Pin 3=Cold (-).
Line Input Jack Socket
Standard 1/4” (6.25mm) Jack socket for balanced or unbalanced line
level signals. Wired Tip=Hot(+), Ring=cold (-), Sleeve=Chassis.
The Line input overrides the Mic input, so if you want to hear
something plugged in to the xlr socket, make sure nothing is
plugged into the Line input.

Standard 1/4” (6.25mm) Jack socket for unbalanced insert send and
return signals. Wired Tip=send, Ring=return, Sleeve=Chassis.
Nominal level is 0dBu. The insert point is after the 100Hz filter and
before the EQ.

This adjusts the gain of the input amplifier to match the signal level
of the input. The gain is varied from –6dB (attenuation) to +63dB
for signals plugged in to the xlr socket (Mic Input) and –10dB to
+26dB for signals plugged into the Line input jack.

The HF (High Frequency) equaliser affects the frequency response
of the higher audible frequencies. The corner frequency of 12kHz is
around 3dB from the maximum cut or boost of the circuit. It has
plenty of gain and actually gives slightly more that the +/-15dB legend suggests.

MF EQ
The MF (Mid Frequency) equaliser affects the middle of the audible
frequency range. The frequency graduations on the sweep control
are the centre frequencies of the EQ. The range has been carefully
chosen to cover “boomy” frequencies around 120Hz to 250Hz
which may need cutting back, or a lift at 2 to 3kHz may be required
for microphone intelligibility.

Auxes 1 & 2
Each of these controls sends a signal to an auxiliary bus. The signal is
sourced pre-fade which means that the level is independent of, and unaffected by the fader. Auxes 1 & 2 are primarily used for foldback monitoring
purposes, as the fader does not affect the level. They can also be used as
feeds for recording and are available sources to the USB interface for this
purpose.
These sends are affected by the Mute switch, so muting the channel will also
mute the Aux sends.
The control varies the signal level to the bus from off (fully attenuated) to
+6dB, with unity gain at the arrow.
There are master level controls for the Aux 1 & 2 outputs situated in the
master section of the mixer.

MUTE
These are post-fade sends, which means that the signals are affected by the
channel fader. Primarily used for effects sends, the aux signal will reduce if
the fader is pulled down so keeping the correct proportion of the effect.
Muting the channel will also mute the Aux sends, and the send controls have
6dB gain fully clockwise.
There are no master level controls for Aux 3 output or the FX mix bus.

The pan control adjusts how the signal from the mono input channel is
shared between the left and right buses and subsequently the main stereo
outputs. Set to the mid position, equal amounts of signal are fed to left and
right, with pan set to L, none is sent to the Right bus.

PFL Switch & PK! LED
The PFL (Pre-Fade Listen) switch sends the channel signal to the PFL bus
and subsequently to the headphones and the main L R meters. Used for
checking the audio signal before raising the fader or un-muting the channel.
The PK! LED illuminates dimly to indicate the PFL switch is pressed, and
brightly to indicate the channel signal is within 5dB of clipping.

The 100mm fader affects the level of the channel signal to the left & right

STEREO INPUT CHANNEL ST1
Stereo Return Phono sockets
ST RTN
This is an additional stereo input to the main stereo channel input
(below). The gain is varied by the ST RTN control and this input can
be sent to either the stereo channel or straight to the L R main bus,
depending on the setting of the under-panel switch. These inputs
are unbalanced.

Stereo 1 input jack sockets
Standard 1/4” jack sockets for line level stereo signals. Can be used
with a mono input where the L/M input will also connect to the R
input if nothing is plugged in to R.
The Stereo 1 inputs accept unbalanced or balanced signals.
