Multipurpose USB Mixer with FX for Live Sound and Recording

ZED-16FX is ideal for groups who need to travel light. It gives musicians, venues and hire companies access to 10 full mono channels, 3 stereo channels and a high quality FX unit in a compact, rack mountable format. Configurable USB audio in/out makes it easy to capture stereo recordings.

USB audio flexibility

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:

Send options:

  • 1) Main Mix Left + Right (Post-fade)
  • 2) Main Mix Left + Right (Pre-Fade)
  • 3) Auxes 1-2
  • 4) Auxes 3-FX

Return options:

  • 1) To Stereo 3 channel

ZED-16FX features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilizes MusiQ - with optimized slope (or Q factor) for equalizing individual instruments.


Based on the proven pre-amps from the hugely successful PA series, ZED-16FX has DuoPre pre-amps, which 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. Line level signals are simply plugged into the second stage of the pre-amp by using the line input jack socket, which has the great advantage of less noise when using the line input and also matching to a higher input impedance.


ZED-16FX 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. Their 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.

SONAR X1 LE - Provided Free!

They've included Cakewalk SONAR X1 LE with ZED-16FX so you can immediately start to use it to create your own music - just add a PC and it couldn't be easier to get going. You'll be able to record from your ZED mixer, create tracks and arrange songs, then play back to ZED via the USB port. You can use SONAR X1 LE and your ZED mixer together in many ways - e.g. straightforward recording of a stereo mix, recording tracks individually to build up a song, or using the USB port and software as an effects loop.

Great sounding versatile mixer
Pros: Easy To Use,Accurate Controls,Excellent Sound,Versatile,Compact

This is a wonderful sound board and very versatile. Love the EQ, great sweep-able mids. Also love the fact that there are 3 auxs. One dedicated for the internal FX and the other two I can use for front and back monitor mixes. But if I do need more of a monitor mix I can also use the Sub Faders. So that gives me 5 sends back to the stage.Then on the first 10 channels I have inserts. So that means for my vocals I can have my own FX (pitch correct, harmony maker, comp) on my own channel. Then my basic reverb can be on aux 3. If I want to record live I can go USB to My lap top or go tape out. Now that is versatility. So much is packed into this 16 ch board. I would recommend it to any 4 or 5 piece band that playing bars and would love to record themselves. My Band loves it!!!
