    Notify me when this product is available:

    The ZED-420 is one of three "4-Bus" mixers in the ZED range from Allen & Heath. As the category suggests, the ZED-420 has some serious output options including 4 sub-groups on faders. These are excellent consoles for recording studios or live applications, and very moderately priced given the feature sets and audio-quality. Comes with USB connectivity. 

ZED-420 is excellent for bands, houses of worship, theatres or AV applications. It has a professional feature set, which will fit any sound reinforcement application and professional PA hire stock. ZED-420 has Configurable USB audio in/out makes it easy to capture stereo recordings, 16 mic or line inputs plus 2 dual stereo inputs, 4-band EQ with MusiQ, 4 sub-groups, 6 auxiliary sends and a 7×2 matrix.


          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 5-6

          5) Matrix 1-2

          Return options
          1) To Playback input
2) To Stereo 3 channel

          ZED-420 has a tuned 4-band EQ taken from the acclaimed GL2200 mixer, utilising MusiQ – with optimised slope (or Q factor) for equalising individual instruments.


          Based on the proven pre-amps from the hugely successful PA series, ZED-420 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.
