WZ316:2 and 12:2 User Guide
Introducing the MixWizard
The Allen & Heath MixWizard series of consoles includes several models. This user guide
3
3
3
describes the WZ 16:2 and WZ 12:2 stereo models. The 4 group WZ 14:4:2 and stereo
input WZ20S consoles are described in separate publications. For further information on the
MixWizard series please refer to the Allen & Heath web site.
The MixWizard is a compact console designed for
professional live sound mixing. It is built to the same
high standards as our top of the range consoles, with
individual circuit cards, potentiometers nutted to the
panel for absolute strength, steel chassis, and no
compromise circuit design ensuring the finest sonic
performance.
The console can be operated free standing or in a
19” rack or flightcase. It is supplied with protective
side trims fitted. These can be removed for rack
mounting. The rear connector pod can be easily
rotated for rear facing or underside connectors when
rack mounted.
Both models feature a 4 band semi-parametric EQ
and high pass filter per mic/line channel, 6 aux sends
with combinations of pre/post switching, 100mm
faders, a built-in dual effects processor with
parameter control using Allen & Heath PC software,
dedicated mono output with separate fader and
innovative operating mode for aux fed sub systems,
additional AB stereo output, comprehensive metering
and engineers monitoring, dual redundant backup
supply input, and a lamp socket.
The WZ316:2 provides 16 mono mic/line inputs and 2
stereo return inputs, a total of 20 input connections.
3
The WZ 12:2 provides 10 mono mic/line inputs, 2 full
channel dual stereo inputs, and 2 stereo return
inputs, a total of 22 input connections.
The base of the console can be removed to access a
host of internal option jumpers. These set user
preference for the aux, direct output and AB sources.
The aux outputs are impedance balanced but may
be electronically balanced if required by fitting an
optional part. A kit is also available to fit the optional
Sys-Link II output card which allows the console to
be linked to other Allen & Heath consoles.
Software for editing the effects parameters using a
PC computer can be downloaded free from the Allen
& Heath web site.
Other accessories available include the Allen &
Heath MPS12 backup power supply and LEDlamp
gooseneck lamp with built-in dimmer.

WARNING: THIS APPARATUS MUST BE EARTHED
Serial No.
Read and understand the Important Safety Instructions printed at the start of this guide,
and the warnings printed on the rear of the console. Check that your local mains supply is
within the 100-240V operating voltage range allowed. Check that the correct mains lead
with moulded plug has been supplied with your console. Make sure that the IEC mains plug
is pressed fully into the panel socket before switching on.
Grounding
The connection to ground in an audio system is important for two reasons:
1.
SAFETY - To protect the operator from high voltage electric shock, and
2. AUDIO PERFORMANCE - To minimise the effect of ground (earth) loops which result in
audible hum and buzz, and to shield the audio signals from interference.
For safety it is important that all equipment grounds are connected to mains ground so that
exposed metal parts are prevented from carrying high voltage which can injure or even kill
the operator. Do not disconnect the ground connection in the mains lead. It is
recommended that the system engineer check the continuity of the safety ground from all
points in the system including microphone bodies, turntable chassis, equipment cases, rack
metalwork and so on.
Switching the console on and off
It is good practice to turn power amplifiers off before switching the console and any other
connected equipment on or off. This prevents any unexpected clicks or thumps when the
equipment is powered up.
Turn amplifiers and powered speakers on last and off first.
To turn the console on, press the ON/OFF switch next to the IEC mains input socket. To
turn the console off, press this switch again.
Connecting a backup supply
A socket is included for plugging in an optional backup power supply. This provides the
reassurance of power supply dual redundancy, a feature usually found only in expensive top
end consoles. The console uses diode combining technology so that both supplies can be
powered at the same time. One will automatically take over should the other stop working.
The recommended backup supply for the MixWizard is the Allen & Heath MPS12 power unit.
Refer to the user guide which comes with this supply.
Only plug the recommended Allen & Heath power unit into this socket. Do not
attempt to modify any other power unit to work with the console. Do not attempt to modify or
extend the DC power cable that comes with the supply.
The console can work with just the internal supply powered by mains, or just the backup
supply, or with both powered at the same time. To ensure uninterrupted performance in the
unlikely event of a failure, we recommended that both supplies are powered.

Audio Connections
The MixWizard uses professional grade 3 pin XLR and 1/4" TRS (3 pole) jack sockets. 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 problems are due to faulty or sub standard interconnecting
leads. The following mating plugs may be used to connect audio signals to the console:
Avoid reversing + and - on balanced connections as this will result in reversed polarity (out
of phase) signals which may cause signal cancellation effects.
Where long cables runs are required, balanced interconnections should be used. However,
line level interconnections between more affordable 2-wire (signal, ground) unbalanced
equipment and the console are unlikely to cause problems if the cables are kept shorter than
10 meters or so. Refer to the wiring diagrams on the opposite page.
Dealing with Ground Loops, Buzz and Interference
For optimum performance all audio signals should be referenced to a solid, noise-free
ground (earth) point, frequently referred to as the ‘star point’ or ‘clean earth’.
A ground loop is created when potential differences exist between grounds at different
points in the system, and the signal has more than one path to ground. In most cases
ground loops do not result in audible problems. Should you experience hum or buzz caused
by a ground loop, 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 only.
This breaks the offending loop while keeping the signal shielding down the length of cable.
WARNING For operator safety do not remove the ground (earth) connection
in the power lead of the console or connected equipment.
To avoid interference pickup keep audio cables away from mains power units and cables,
thyristor dimmer units, computer equipment and mobile phones. Where this cannot be
avoided, cross the cables at right angles to minimise interference
A note about balanced connections
A differentially balanced connection has two signal wires, signal + (hot) and signal - (cold)
and a shield. The signal source generates positive going polarity down the + wire and
negative polarity down the – wire. The destination input stage accepts the + signal on its
non-inverting (+) input pin, but it inverts the – signal, adding it to the + signal. The result is
that the wanted signal is boosted. Now examine what happens when unwanted interference
(hum and noise) is induced into the cable. The noise is induced equally and with the same
polarity into both wires. At the destination input the – wire signal gets inverted and added to
the + signal. Because the polarity is the same on both input wires the noise cancels itself
out at this input. For this interference rejection to work it is important that the source, the
cable and the destination input are all balanced. Balancing provides greatest advantage
with low level signals such as those produced by microphones.
An impedance balanced output provides similar interference rejection, but without the signal
drive on the - wire. It does not generate a negative polarity signal at its – output. Instead,
the – wire has no signal but is held at the same impedance as the + wire. This means that
both wires pick up the noise equally resulting in cancellation as described above.

Note that the ST5 (WZ312:2) or ST1 (WZ316:2) stereo return input mixes
with the internal effects processor return. This means that an external
effects device fed from a different aux mix can mix with the internal
processor to save input channels. Alternatively, you could turn the internal

RING
Tip = send, Ring = return, Sleeve = common ground. The channel insert
is post-HPF, pre-EQ and operates at 0dBu. The LR mix insert is pre-fader
and operates at -2dBu. These should work fine with line level signal
processing equipment such as compressors, outboard EQ, delay units and
so on. An example of a suitable cable is shown here:
DIRECT OUTPUT The mic/line channel direct output is available on
an impedance balanced TRS jack. It is a line level signal operating at
0dBu. The source is set using an internal option jumper for each channel.
The factory default setting is pre-fade (following the pre/post-EQ setting).
This may be changed to post-fade if preferred.
The direct outputs provide a useful source for multitrack recording. Many
users prefer pre-fade sends for this application so that the live show fader
movements do not affect the recording which can be mixed later. Another
application is channel effects sends. For example, a reverb unit may be
dedicated to work with the lead vocalist channel only. Using a post-fade
direct output instead of an aux send frees up that aux mix for other
purposes.
WZ316:2 and 12:2 User Guide

L, R, M OUT The main console mix outputs are on balanced XLR.
These produce +4dBu when the meters read ‘0’. The M output can be
switched to provide a mono sum of the post-fade L and R signals, or the
AUX6 output.
The L and R outputs typically feed the house PA system in live sound
mixing, or a 2-track recorder in studio mixing. In mono mode, the M output
can provide an additional feed for a mono fill speaker or zone, or be used
as the main feed into a mono PA. Used with a mono PA the L and R mix
can provide a pair of subgroups, each with routing using the channel PAN
controls, inserts and faders. Configured to provide the AUX6 mix, the M
output is ideal for driving a sub bass speaker system when working with
an ‘aux fed subs’ PA. This provides the sub feed with its own per-channel
mix on balanced XLR and with dedicated fader alongside the main LR
faders for proper control of the house volume.
AB OUT A pair of impedance balanced TRS jacks can be configured to
provide an additional LR mix or engineers monitor send. These operate at
-2dBu line level. A front panel recessed ‘mode’ switch determines the
source to the AB output. This may be set to follow the console monitor
system and therefore feed an independent local stereo monitor or even
engineers wedge speaker. When set to follow the LR mix, the factory
default source is taken post LR fader. An internal option jumper is
available to change this to pre LR fader.
The unique AB output feature provides the MixWizard with a host of
possibilities… independent 2-track recording feed, broadcast feed, zone
and delay fill feeds, local monitor, engineers wedge monitor and more.
AUX OUT 1-6 Each aux send is available on an impedance balanced
TRS jack operating at -2dBu line level. An internal option is available to fit
a balanced line driver IC to provide an electronically balanced output
operating at +4dBu. Note that it is not usual to require this option as the
impedance balanced standard drive provides significant interference
rejection when feeding balanced equipment inputs.
The aux sends are typically used to feed stage monitors, effects devices
such as reverb and delay, and for special mix requirements.
MIDI IN A standard 5-pin DIN MIDI input socket is provided. This is
used with external MIDI equipment or a MIDI equipped PC to control the
built-in effects processor mute, presets and parameters. Free software
can be downloaded from the Allen & Heath web site for PC editing of the
parameters via MIDI.
FOOTSWITCH Mutes and unmutes the ST5 (ST1) effects return
channel, ideal for bypassing the effects between songs. Note that this
affects the internal processor and also any external effects device that
may be plugged in to these return inputs. Use a momentary or latching
footswitch as required. Shorting a TS or TRS jack tip to sleeve turns the
mute on.
SYS-LINK II OPTION A blank plate is fitted here as standard. The
Sys-Link II option kit is available from Allen & Heath. Refer to OPTIONS

GAIN Adjusts the input sensitivity to match the connected source to
the internal 0dBu operating level of the channel. Provides a variable
50dB range from +10 to +60dB gain (mic), or -10 to +40dB (line, pad
selected). The gain should be set using PFL so that the console
meters average ‘0’ with loudest moments lighting ‘+6’. Reduce gain if

Switches in the channel high pass filter. This attenuates
frequencies below 80Hz by 12dB per octave. The filter is pre-insert,
pre-EQ. Select the HPF to reduce low frequency noise such as
microphone popping, stage noise and tape transport rumble.
EQ A 4-band semi parametric EQ provides independent control of
four frequency bands. HF and LF are shelving filters which affect high
frequencies above 12kHz, and low frequencies below 80Hz
respectively. HM and LM are bell shaped peak/dip filters which affect
frequencies around a centre point which can be swept from 500Hz to
15kHz and 35Hz to 1kHz respectively. These have a width (Q) of 1.8.
All bands can be boosted or cut by up to 15dB and have a centre
detent 0dB position.
Check for the best microphone selection and placement before using
the EQ. Start with the EQ set flat and apply only as much boost or cut
as is really needed. When dealing with problem frequencies cut rather
than boost where possible.

These settings may be changed if preferred by repositioning internal
jumper link options. They offer many different combinations of pre and
post-fade sends, and a post-EQ option for the pre-fade sends. The
PRE switch can be assigned to one, two or more of the sends. More
detail is provided in OPTIONS later in this guide.
Pre-fade aux sends are not affected by the channel fader movements.
These are typically used to feed stage monitors. In most cases users
also prefer that the monitor sends are not affected by inserted
processors or the channel EQ. Post-fade aux sends follow the channel
faders and are typically used to send a proportion of the channel signal
to an effects device such as reverb or delay. Pre or post-fade sends
may also be used for special applications such as recording, zone
feeds, clean feeds and aux fed subs.
PRE When pressed the pre-fade channel signal is sent to the
associated auxes. When released the post-fade signal is sent. Auxes
3 and 4 are affected by the PRE switch (factory default). You can
change this by repositioning the internal option jumpers.
PAN
Positions the channel signal between L and R in the stereo
mix. The centre position (mono image) is detented for quick resetting.
MUTE When pressed the channel signal is turned off. This affects
the feed to the LR mix, pre and post-fade aux sends and direct output,
but does not affect the insert send. The red indicator lights when the
channel is muted.
PFL Press PFL to listen to the pre-fade channel signal in the
headphones or AB monitor (if configured) without affecting the main
outputs. The console main LR meters are interrupted with the channel
signal. The red PK indicator half lights to show that PFL has been
selected on that channel. Selecting more than one PFL at the same
time mixes those signals together in the monitor.
PEAK
The red indicator illuminates when the channel pre-fade
signal is within 5dB of clipping. This gives you enough warning to
reduce the GAIN control before you hear signal distortion.
SIGNAL
The green signal presence indicator lights when the
channel pre-fade signal is greater than -12dBu.
FADER
Controls the channel level feeding the main LR mix and
post-fade aux sends. It also affects the direct output if this has been
set to post-fade using the internal option jumpers. The fader provides
+10dB maximum boost above its normal unity gain 0dB position.
Important note on setting channel levels: Use PFL to set the GAIN
controls for correct signal level through each channel. Use the faders
to balance each signal in the mix. These are typically operated around
their -20 to 0 positions according to the mix. We do not recommend
setting the faders to ‘0’ and mixing using the GAIN controls.

Dual stereo inputs Each of the two stereo channels has two
stereo inputs which can be used separately, mixed together or split so
that one feeds the channel, the other routes direct to LR. For example,
you could mix two sound effects playback devices or two reverb
returns together into one channel. This can be useful in saving
channels, letting you mix many inputs in a small space. The L input

EQ
A 4-band fixed frequency EQ provides independent control of
four frequency bands. HF and LF are shelving filters which affect high
frequencies above 12kHz, and low frequencies below 80Hz
respectively. HM and LM are bell shaped peak/dip filters which affect
frequencies centred around 2.5kHz and 250Hz respectively. These
have a width (Q) of 1.8. All bands can be boosted or cut by up to 15dB
and have a centre detented 0dB position.
AUX SENDS These work as described for the mono channel. The
L and R sides of the stereo signal sum together to feed each aux in
mono. This can be changed using an internal jumper option so that L
feeds auxes 1,3 and R feeds auxes 2,4.
BAL Balances the level of the L signal against the R signal to
compensate for differences in the source signal, or to position the
signal within the stereo image. The centre equal level position is
detented for quick resetting.
MUTE When pressed the channel signal is turned off. This affects
the feed to the LR mix, and pre and post-fade aux sends. The red

The STEREO Effects Processor
The MixWizard WZ316:2 and WZ312:2 features a built-in stereo digital effects processor.
This can be configured to work as a single effects engine fed from AUX5, or in dual mode as
two effects engines independently fed from AUX5 and AUX6. The processed signal is
routed back to the mix through the ST1 (ST5) stereo return channel. In dual mode the two
stereo effects mix together into the return channel.
The ST1 (ST5) TRS jack inputs mix with the internal effects processor through the return
channel. This allows you to have the internal and external effects devices returning their
processed signals through one return channel. In dual mode this gives you three stereo
signals mixing into one.
SINGLE FX mode With the recessed mode switch in its up position, AUX5 is used to
send the channel post-fade signals to the internal effects processor. One bank of 16 effects
presets is available.

Resetting the effects presets To restore the factory default
presets hold down the SEL key while powering up the console. Make
sure you do this while the amplifiers are turned off. The 8 green
indicators flash in sequence followed by the BANK indicator flashing on
then off to confirm the reset.

MIDI
A rear panel MIDI IN socket is provided. This lets you control the internal effects via MIDI.
For example, you could use a MIDI sequencer or controller to remotely change the preset
type or to mute the effect. MIDI is also used for editing the effects preset parameters using
Allen & Heath software running on a PC.
MIDI channel number The factory default is MIDI channel 1. To change to a different
channel hold down the BANK key while powering up the console. Make sure you do this
while the amplifiers are turned off. While still holding the BANK key, use the SEL key to
step through channels 1-16. After cycling through MIDI channels 1-16 the processor will
then turn all the indicators on then all off. Release both the BANK and SEL keys when the
required MIDI channel number is reached. The BANK indicator will flash twice to confirm
the selection has been made.

Using MIDI to edit the effects parameters
The MixWizard FX Editor software can be downloaded free of charge from the Allen & Heath
web site. This program runs on a PC computer using the Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000 or XP
operating system. The PC needs a MIDI output port to be able to communicate with the
console. Check the instructions that come with your PC to see if it has a suitable port or if
you need to add a sound card with MIDI port, or use a game port to MIDI adaptor cable.
Install and run the FX Editor software on your PC. Connect the PC MIDI output to the
console MIDI input. Refer to the Help file that comes with the software for instructions on
configuring and using the software to edit the effects parameters.
The effects can be edited on-line so that you can hear the effect of your changes as you
adjust the parameters. Once you are happy with the results you can overwrite the selected
console presets with your edited effects. You can also archive your settings as a file stored
on the PC.

LR FADER MASTERS Individual 100mm faders adjust the main

L-R mix level. They provide +10dB boost above the nominal ‘0’
position. For best performance the faders should be operated around
the ‘0’ position for normal ‘loud’ level. If you find yourself operating
significantly below ‘0’ then the amplifier or other destination equipment
is too sensitive for the console +4dBu output. Simply turn down the
amplifier or equipment level trim. If none is available then insert an
attenuator pad between the console and connected equipment.
Operating the faders well below ‘0’ may degrade the noise
performance of the equipment.

Mono master To use the M output as an L+R summed mono feed
then select the up position. The fader can become the master level
controller for a mono PA, mono fill or delay speaker, additional zone,
mono recording and so on.
Aux master To use the M output as the AUX6 master press the
switch using a pen or pointed object. Use the post-fade AUX6 channel
sends to mix the required signals to the M output. This provides a
main console output with its own mix bus. Typical applications include:
AUX6
Dedicated MONO mix The output feeds a centre mono fill speaker
system, for example above the proscenium arch or along the front of
the stage in a theatre. You may wish to feed just a few of the sources
to these speakers, for example just the radio mic channels for front row
clarity. Using the aux send allows you to create the required mix
balance and have proper master fader control.
Aux fed subs This increasingly popular application drives the sub
bass speakers with their own mix. It lets you send only those sources
with wanted low frequency information to the sub speakers. It can
dramatically clean up the mix as non-bass channels such as vocals
and guitars are kept out of the subs and therefore do not allow low
frequency pickup to muddy the mix. It is typical to include only sources
such as kick drum, bass guitar, keyboards and sound effects to these
speakers.
The unique MixWizard aux mode feature puts the master control of the
sub mix on to a fader next to the main LR faders. This means that the
house volume can be controlled without upsetting the balance between
LR and sub speakers. The feed to the sub speaker system is on
balanced XLR, and it can be monitored by selecting the M switch in the
headphones monitor section.

With the mode switch in its up position, the LR mix is selected as the
source to the AB output TRS jacks. Factory default setting is post-LR
fader. If preferred you can change this to pre-LR fader by repositioning
internal option jumpers so that the LR master fader movements do not
affect the output. In LR mode the AB output provides an additional
main mix output ideal for independent fill speaker control, 2-track
recording or broadcast feed and so on.
With the mode switch pressed, the console monitor system is selected
as the source. You can use this to feed local monitor speakers to
listen to the source selected on the monitor switch bank interrupted by
PFL. Local speaker monitoring can be useful in theatre and stage
monitoring applications.

Press M to listen to the post-fade M source. Pressing any switch
higher up the bank overrides the previous selection. Pressing ST1
(ST5) listens to the wet effects only return signal if the internal effects
processor is active. Pressing Aux pairs 1-2, 3-4, 5-6 together listens to
the two selected auxes as a stereo pair. The two console meters
display the selected monitor source signal level.
Pressing channel PFL switches automatically overrides the current
monitor selection with the pre-fade signal from that channel or

console meters display the channel signal.
We recommend you use closed ear headphones in the range 30 to
600 ohms designed for live sound monitoring. Headphones around
100 ohms impedance are a popular choice.
WARNING: To avoid damage to your hearing do not operate
any close-to-ear monitoring such as headphones for long periods
at high volume. Continued exposure to high volume sound can
cause frequency selective or wide range hearing loss.

This is a simple stereo return channel that
routes to the main LR mix. The typical application is to plug in a CD or
similar playback device for walk-in or background music. It can also be
used as an additional effects return. Adjust the volume using the LEV
control. Route the signal to LR by pressing the TO LR switch. The
green LED lights to warn that the source is routed to LR.
You can use the ST2 (ST6) input to monitor your 2-track recording.
Press the ST2 (ST6) monitor source select switch. Use the AB output
to feed your recorder. If you are monitoring while mixing live, make
sure you do not accidentally press the TO LR switch and route your
recording to the house speakers.

WZ316:2 and 12:2 User Guide
Gain Structure
How the levels between the different signal stages are set up is referred to as the
gain structure. For best performance it is important that the connected source
signals are matched to the ‘normal operating level’ of the console. Similarly the
levels of the connected amplifiers and destination equipment should be correctly
matched to the console outputs. If set too high then the signal peaks will be
clipped resulting in distortion, and if set too low then the signal-to-noise
performance will be degraded resulting in excessive background hiss and noise.
Using the Meters The MixWizard provides metering of inputs and outputs.
For best results operate the console with the main meters averaging around ‘0’
allowing the loudest moments to reach ‘+6’. Reduce the channel gain settings if
the red peak indicators start to flash. Note that the peak indicators light 5dB
before actual clipping to warn that you are nearing distortion and should reduce
gain. The LED bar meters have a ‘quasi-peak’ response with fast attack and slow
release so that fast musical transients are accurately displayed.
Matching a Source to the Console Start by turning down the channel
fader and send levels to prevent unexpected loud volumes reaching the main
speakers and monitors. Using PFL, adjust the GAIN control for an average ‘0’
reading on the console meters. These automatically switch to show the channel
pre-fade signal when PFL is pressed. Listen to the signal using headphones or
local AB monitor. Once the channel gain is correctly set you can raise the levels
to bring the channel into the mix. Note that you may need to adjust the gain if you
make significant changes to the EQ. Make sure that any equipment inserted into
the channel is set to operate around 0dBu line level. First set the gain with
inserted signal processors such as compressors switched to bypass.
Matching the Console to Destination Equipment The console
produces a standard XLR output level of +4dBu for a meter reading of ‘0’. It can
produce a maximum of +26dBu which is more than is usually required and
therefore gives you plenty of headroom. If you are connecting to a sensitive
power amplifier it is advisable to turn down its input trim control if the normal
console level is too high. Simply turning down the console output faders
degrades the output stage noise performance and reduces the resolution of the
fader movement. The output faders are best operated around ‘-10’ to ‘0’ for
loudest average volume required. This allows additional headroom if you need it.
Terminology The normal operating level is the optimum signal level for best
console performance, indicated by ‘0’ meter readings and resulting in the +4dBu
XLR output level. The channels operate at 0dBu and the mix stages at –2dBu for
extended headroom. Headroom is the extra level available above normal to allow
for loud peaks before the signal becomes clipped resulting in audible distortion.
The signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is the difference measured in dB between normal
level and residual noise floor (hiss) produced by the console electronics. The
dynamic range is the sum of headroom and SNR representing the maximum
signal range possible from quietest to loudest.
Final word…
A little care with setting gain structure throughout the signal
chain will give you the best performance and most manageable control of the mix.

The MixWizard has a versatile architecture which
should satisfy most applications you may encounter
without modification. However, the following internal
options provide alternative settings for those
applications that may demand them. Access is
required to the internal assemblies.
For user
convenience, pluggable jumper links are used in
most places.
REMOVE M4 POZI SCREW PER SIDE
ROTATE POD
REMOVE 3x M3 TORX SCREWS
Remove the base Start by removing the side
trims if fitted using a Pozi crosshead screwdriver.
Release the two M4 Pozi head pod securing screws
and rotate the connector pod to gain access to the
three M3 rear base fixing screws. Use a Torx
starhead screwdriver to remove these. Rotate the
pod again to remove the four M3 underside base
screws using the Torx driver. Carefully lift off the
base.
Configure the internal options
Fit the
options required. Set the option jumpers to the
required positions. Make sure they are pressed fully
home. Check that all channels are correctly set and
all options fitted according to their instructions. Make
sure that no debris or parts are left loose inside the
console.

IMPORTANT:
Check carefully that all channel
jumpers are correctly set as required. Errors on one
or more channels now may cause user problems
later. We recommend that you write the repositioned
jumper settings on a label and adhere this to the rear
panel. This would provide a helpful reference to
other users of the console.

Factory default for
the mono channel pre-fade auxes is pre-insert, preEQ. This is popular with many users mixing monitors
from FOH. It prevents the channel EQ and inserted
compressors affecting the monitor mix. Move the
jumper from A to B to change this to post-insert,
post-EQ if preferred. Note that auxes are always
post-mute.

Factory default is prefader.
This is common for live recording to
multitrack. The live mix fader movements do not
affect the recording. Move the jumper from C to D to
change to post-fade. Post-fade is appropriate when
using the output as a direct channel effects send.
Channel Aux pre/post settings
Factory
default is Aux 1-2 = pre-fade, Aux 3-4 = switched,
Aux 5-6 = post-fade. You can change these settings
for different combinations of pre/post or switched
auxes by repositioning the links. Refer to the system
block diagram to explore the possibilities. Make sure
you set all mono and stereo channels the same.
Before you make your choice, consider whether you
want to use AUX5 or 5/6 for the internal effects
(should be post) and/or AUX6 to feed aux fed subs
(also post). We recommend you only change these
settings if absolutely necessary.

PRE-FADE AUXES
The stereo
channels can feed the auxes with a mono sum of
L+R, or be configured so that L feeds the odd
numbered auxes, and R the even. This is preferred
when using odd/even auxes as stereo pairs. Factory
default is the mono setting. Note that you should
also set the ST1 (ST5) stereo/mono jumper to the
same position.

The return channel ST1 (5) feeds Auxes 1-4 with a
mono sum of the stereo signal. If you are working
with stereo auxes you can reconfigure this for stereo
with L feeding Auxes 1, 3 and R feeding Auxes 2, 4.
The jumper is found behind the AUX2 send control.
AB source pre or post LR faders The
factory default is that the post-fade LR mix feeds the
AB output. If you prefer the master LR faders not to
affect the AB output then reposition the two option
jumpers in the PRE position. This may be desired if
you are using the AB output to feed a 2-track
recording independent of the house level.

The 6 aux
outputs are impedance balanced as standard
operating at nominal -2dBu and with +21dBu
maximum drive. They provide similar interference
rejection to electronically balanced outputs when
connected to balanced equipment inputs.
An
electronically balanced option is available if you
require nominal +4dBu and higher output drive up to
+26dBu over very long cable runs. However, it is not
usually necessary to fit this option as the impedance
balanced drive satisfies most applications. Check
that you really need the option before fitting it.
There are two balanced driver ICs which may be
used. Either is suitable. These are available from
Allen & Heath or most electronic component
suppliers. The Allen & Heath part number is shown
below:
SSM2142P
A&H Part AE0302
DRV134
A&H Part AE5725
For each aux master, snip the legs of the two zero
ohm resistor links as shown. This removes them
from the circuit. Now simply plug the option IC into
the socket. Observe the correct IC pin1 orientation
and make sure its legs are correctly aligned with the
socket. Test the output once the work is complete.
You should measure the same level but opposite
polarity signal between + (hot) and ground, and –
(cold) and ground.

SYS-LINK II OUTPUT
37WAY CABLE
Sys-Link II output option A blank plate is
fitted here as standard. This may be replaced with
an optional card which provides a 37way D
connector for linking the outputs to other Allen &
Heath consoles already fitted with Sys-Link II. The
WZ312:2 or WZ316:2 can become input channel
expanders for other consoles.
IMPORTANT: The option does not include the SysLink II input. Therefore the WZ312:2 or WZ316:2
cannot be used as the master in a linked system, nor
can two of these models be linked together. You
need to connect these to a console that does include
the Sys-Link II input connection, for example the
WZ314:4:2 or ML3000 with the option already fitted.
Also note that you need an adapter cable if you are
connecting Sys-Link II (Version 2) to the older SysLink I (Version 1) standard.
