Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer

Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer Details

Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer is an ultra-compact broadcast mixer, perfect for for small radio or internet broadcast studios, college and university radio stations, podcasting, content creation and more. Despite its tiny footprint, Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer is packed with the kinds of specialised broadcast features that normally come at a much higher price. Radio-friendly tools include a telephone communication (telco) channel, mic channel ON switch sensing, stereo channel start/cue outputs for CD deck transport control and automatic muting of speaker outputs. A separate monitor mix can be created for operator and guest or presenter, and the operator can speak off-air to the studio or telephone callers using the ??Talk?? feature. Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer's preamps use low noise discrete transistor circuitry to achieve high gain and excellent linearity. Each mic channel comes equipped with our innovative CompACT compressor to keep the dynamic range of a presenter microphone under control. A variable limiter on the main output ensures that the final mix to air does not saturate expensive broadcast equipment. The plug-n-play USB connection can be used for VoIP telephone calls, recording program material, playing jingles and more.


USB

Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer comes with a full duplex USB soundcard built-in and many useful routing options for recording and broadcast applications.


Musiq

Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer features a responsive 3-band, swept mid frequency EQ design which utilises MusiQ with optimised slope for a variety of sources.


Output Limiter

A variable limiter ensures the level does not exceed a pre-defined level. Back panel option switches allow the limiter to be bypassed. A trim pot is used to vary the threshold and an LED on the front panel indicates when the limiter has triggered.


Compact Compressor

Allen & Heath Zed-XB-10 Mixer features Allen & Heath's ComPACT compressor on each of its mic channels. CompACT (Adaptive Compression Technology) is a program-dependent audio leveller. Unlike other compressors, which are effective only at reducing loud sounds, CompACT combines both downward and upward compression with peak limiting. Low level signals are given a gain boost, mid level signals are mildly compressed with a soft knee response, and high level signals are limited.
