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 lightening
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.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Important Mains plug wiring instructions
The console is supplied with a moulded mains plug fitted to the AC
mains power lead. Follow the instructions below if the mains plug has to
be replaced. The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:
TERMINAL
!
WIRE COLOUR
European
USA/Canada
L
LIVE
BROWN
BLACK
N
NEUTRAL
BLUE
WHITE
E
EARTH GND
GREEN & YELLOW
GREEN
The wire which is coloured Green and Yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or with the Earth symbol. This appliance must be earthed.
The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter N.
The wire which is coloured Brown must be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter L.
Ensure that these colour codes are followed carefully in the event of the
plug being changed.
General Precautions:
Damage :
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.
Environment :
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.
Cleaning :
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.
Transporting :
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.
Hearing :
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.

Allen & Heath
INTRODUCTION TO THE ZED-4 BUS MIXERS
A Technical Overview:
The Allen & Heath ZED-4 mixer has 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.
Mic/Line Pre-amps:
Based on the pre-amps from the PA series, the ZED series 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-4 series mixers are equipped with a 4-band equaliser circuit on each input, based closely on the acclaimed GL2400
EQ. 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:
Six auxiliary sends are provided, two pre-fade, two post fade, and two switched pre or post fade. The Aux master level controls are grouped nicely together in the master section and have AFL (after fade listen) switches for monitoring.
Groups:
The four sub-groups can be used for easy control of groups of inputs, or for applying signal processing such as compression to
groups of signals using the Group Insert connector. The groups have individual outputs and can also be sub-mixed to the main
L-R and Mono mixes.
Main Mix:
In addition to the main L-R stereo bus, there is a Mono bus which can be routed to individually, ideal for feeding low frequency
speaker systems, or creating a mono PA mix.
Mono and Stereo Channels:
The ZED-420, 428 and 436 models have a full complement of 16, 24 and 32 mono inputs respectively, plus two stereo channels, maximising the number of inputs you get. The Stereo channels are dual, so you can get 4 stereo inputs to mix before you
need to use any mono channels.
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 PC
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!

The EQ IN switch enables the equaliser when pushed in. The EQ is
bypassed when the switch is in its up position.
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 all of the Aux outputs situated in
the master section of the mixer.
Auxes 3 & 4
These are switched pre or post-fade so they can be used as either
monitor sends or effects sends.

There are two matrix sub-mix sections in ZED-4. The send controls
(black & red knobs) take the post-fade signals from the Group, Left,
Right and Mono mix paths and send them to the Matrix output. Matrix
outputs 1 & 2 are individual mono outputs. There is a master level control to adjust the overall output level, and an AFL (after fade listen)
switch to check the Matrix mix.
Uses for Matrix outputs include:
•
Record feeds. Enabling a different mix from the main PA mix to
be recorded, where more of the backline sound can be dialled in
to the record mix if it is low in the main PA mix.
•
Zone feeds. For creating individual outputs for different areas to
the main PA arena.
•
Delay stack feeds. Enabling individual mix and level control of
delayed speakers in large auditoriums.
•
Broadcast feeds for live events that are “on air” or “on line!”

USB Audio Interface
The ZED is equipped with a stereo bi-directional USB 1.1 compliant audio CODEC. It is fully compliant with USB 2 ports
and uses standard Windows and MAC Core Audio Drivers. In other words, plug it in and your computer will find it and
be able to transfer audio to and from the ZED USB device.
You will need some form of audio software running on your computer to be able to record and play back what you record, but on a basic level, you can use your computers media player to play straight to the ZED device.
Just a couple of points to look out for:
1.
When you plug in your ZED USB interface to your computer, check the device volume in:
Control Panel\Sounds & Audio Devices\Volume
If the volume is not fully up
like this…...
Then drag it fully up
like this…...
Then click Apply
2.
If you want to reduce latency (delay) there are some different drivers available for your operating system. Please
check the Allen & Heath website www.allen-heath.com for details and links to third party companies able to supply appropriate drivers for your operating system.

SONAR LE Installation.
Put disk into CD or DVD ROM drive and follow instructions on screen!
SONAR LE Audio Configuration with ZED.
To configure your SONAR LE software to communicate audio to and from your ZED mixing console, follow the sequence below.
Ensure the ZED mixing console is powered on.
Connect the USB lead from the computer to the USB port on ZED.
First check that your computer has recognised
the connection of the ZED USB device by clicking
Settings/Control Panel/Sounds and Audio Devices.
The device name should be USB Audio CODEC
(ensure there are no other external audio devices
attached to the computer).
Also ensure the Device Volume is set to High.
This can default to the middle during connection
which means very low volume from the USB device, so
it’s worth checking the first few times you connect.
The properties window should look like this:
It is also a good idea to select “No Sounds” in the
Sounds window.
Allen & Heath

ZED-4 BUS User Guide
Next, fire up SONAR LE.
Click Options/Audio and click on the Drivers tab.
The Input drivers are the audio sources to the
computer, here we have enabled the USB Audio Device
which is the ZED mixing console USB device, and
disabled the audio from the soundcard in the pc.
So the computer is set up to receive audio from
ZED.
The Output Drivers are the audio outputs from the
computer. Here you can see that the pc soundcard
has 4 stereo outputs (all disabled) and the software
has located the USB Audio Device which is ZED.
Tick to enable it.
You will now be able to select your ZED USB left &
right outputs as inputs to SONAR LE and be able to
send audio to your ZED from SONAR outputs.
In order to show how to select inputs to SONAR
tracks, here is a basic Cakewalk project (.cwp).
This is created by clicking File/New/Normal and
then inserting a second audio track by clicking
Insert/Audio Track from the main toolbar.
Click on the I/O tab near the bottom of the window,
then click the expand buttons in the audio track
panes. The tracks 1 & 2 have been re-named ZED
Left and ZED Right by double clicking the name field.
Click the I and the O fields to select inputs and outputs for the track. Here we have selected the USB
Left signal to go to Track 1 (ZED Left) and the USB
Right signal to go to track 2 (ZED Right), panned
them accordingly and selected the track outputs to
be the Master Bus.
If audio is present, click the Input Echo buttons (lit
up yellow here) to monitor the signals on the Master Bus.
The output for the Master Bus is displayed in the
field marked “O” in the Master Bus pane below the
input tracks. You can see here it says USB Audio
Device, which is the ZED USB input.
SONAR will configure this automatically if there is
only one output device enabled in the Output Drivers Options window (above).
You should now be able to send audio to and from your ZED mixing console using SONAR LE.
To test this, let’s do a recording….
Allen & Heath

ZED-4 BUS User Guide
To record the audio on tracks 1 & 2, click the
R buttons so they light up red, then the record
button (circle) on the transport controls on
the top icon toolbar. (Or select larger transport controls from Views).
The audio wave profile will show in the track
panes.
Click stop (Square) when finished.
To listen to the recording, click rewind, then
de-select the input echo buttons (to the right
of the R buttons. Also disarm the tracks by deselecting the R buttons.
Click Play (or spacebar) and the recorded audio should play to the USB port on your ZED
mixing console where you can select USB return to Playback or to the ST3 input.
You can use SONAR LE and your ZED mixer together in many ways, for example straightforward recording of a stereo
mix, recording tracks individually to build up a song, or sending a postfade mix from ZED and inserting an effects plug-in
from SONAR LE, returning the post-effects signal to the mix in ZED.
It is a very versatile combination and we hope you find it a creative and enjoyable product partnership.
