Getting audio to and from a computer easily is now a common
requirement for live sound and music production. The way this has been
implemented 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! CD quality audio to and from your
PC or Mac. Switches and connection through jack socket terminals
provide different send/return configurations:-
1) Main Mix Left + Right (Post master Level)
2) Aux + FX bus (Aux is a pre-fade send, FX is a post-fade send)
3) Record Bus Left + Right (Separate stereo bus to Main Mix)
1) To Playback input (through jack socket break contacts)
2) To Stereo 2 channel (through jack socket break contacts)
ZED-10FX features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design
which utilises MusiQ – with optimised slope (or Q factor) for
equalising individual instruments.
ZED-10FX has an essential selection of 16 time-delay effects,
designed for small groups who don’t want to carry around an effects unit
with their gear but who still want great quality FX at their gigs and
on their recordings. Our DSP engineers worked hard, crafting and
refining beautiful reverb algorithms to enhance every performance. These
effects are available nowhere else at this price point – this quality
and integration is only available from the ZED-FX. ZED effects are
easily controlled using 3 buttons with 9 display LEDs. For example, the
ideal delay time can be quickly tapped-in, or the perfect amount of
reverb on the lead vocal can be dialled-in. There is one-stop navigation
and editing – in fact, it’s just as easy as using effects pedals. To
alter effects parameters, the TAP button is held down and the up/down
buttons pressed to adjust the specific parameter for that effect, for
example, the decay length on PLATE, or the depth on CHORUS.
ZED-10FX’s pre-amps are similar in design to our MixWizard range of
mixers, but with a twist! Inputs 3 & 4 have a high impedance jack
input capable of taking either a normal line level or a low level input
from a guitar pickup. These newly designed inputs have been crafted with
the aim of replicating the sound of a classic guitar or instrument tube
pre-amp in a combo or head amp. An extremely high input impedance
ensures loading on pick-ups is minimal and a Class A FET (field effect
transistor) circuit powered from 48V is employed to give the valve-like
gain stage. There is a gain “Boost” switch associated with the guitar
inputs which boosts gain by 26dB to cater for instruments with very low
level outputs and the overdrive characteristics of the guitar inputs are
very similar to a valve (tube) circuit, being asymmetric and soft. All
this makes for a wonderfully natural sound to be reproduced from the
instrument, full of warmth and character
As if we weren’t spoiling guitarists enough with its Class A FET
high impedance preamps, the ZED-10FX comes with access to a full version
of IK Multimedia’s AmpliTube X-GEAR software – the first fully modular,
customizable and expandable preamp and FX modelling software system.
