upon or against it.

Grounding: Do not defeat the grounding and polarisation means of the power cord plug. Do not remove or tam-
per with the ground connection in the power cord.

! WARNING: This equipment must be earthed.

Water and moisture: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock do not expose the console to rain or moisture or use it in
damp or wet conditions. Do not place containers of liquids on it which might spill into any openings.
Ventilation: Do not obstruct the ventilation slots or position the console where the air flow required for ventilation
is impeded. If the console is to be operated in a rack unit or flightcase ensure that it is constructed to
allow adequate ventilation.
Heat and vibration: Do not locate the console in a place subject to excessive heat or direct sunlight as this could be a fire
hazard. Locate the console away from any equipment which produces heat or causes excessive vi-
bration.
Servicing: Switch off the equipment and unplug the power cord immediately if it is exposed to moisture, spilled
liquid, objects fallen into the openings, the power cord or plug become damaged, during lightening
storms, or if smoke, odour or noise is noticed. Refer servicing to qualified technical personnel only.

Installation: Install the console in accordance with the instructions printed in this User Guide. Do not connect the
output of power amplifiers directly to the console. Use audio connectors and plugs only for their
intended purpose.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

Important Mains plug wiring instructions

The console is supplied with a moulded mains plug fitted to the AC


mains power lead. Follow the instructions below if the mains plug has to
be replaced. The wires in the mains lead are coloured in accordance
with the following code:

TERMINAL WIRE COLOUR


European USA/Canada

!
L LIVE BROWN BLACK
N NEUTRAL BLUE WHITE
E EARTH GND GREEN & YELLOW GREEN

The wire which is coloured Green and Yellow must be connected to the
terminal in the plug which is marked with the letter E or with the Earth sym-
bol. This appliance must be earthed.
The wire which is coloured Blue must be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter N.
The wire which is coloured Brown must be connected to the terminal in the
plug which is marked with the letter L.
Ensure that these colour codes are followed carefully in the event of the
plug being changed.

General Precautions:
Damage : To prevent damage to the controls and cosmetics avoid placing heavy
objects on the control surface, scratching the surface with sharp objects, or
rough handling and vibration.
Environment : Protect from excessive dirt, dust, heat and vibration when operating
and storing. Avoid tobacco ash, smoke, drinks spillage, and exposure to rain
and moisture. If the console becomes wet, switch off and remove mains pow-
er immediately. Allow to dry out thoroughly before using again.
Cleaning : Avoid the use of chemicals, abrasives or solvents. The control panel is
best cleaned with a soft brush and dry lint-free cloth. The faders, switches and
potentiometers are lubricated for life. The use of electrical lubricants on these
parts is not recommended. The fader and potentiometer knobs may be re-
moved for cleaning with a warm soapy solution. Rinse and allow to dry fully
before refitting them.
Transporting : The console may be transported as a free-standing unit or mounted in
a rack or flightcase. Protect the controls from damage during transit. Use
adequate packing if you need to ship the unit.
Hearing : To avoid damage to your hearing do not operate any sound system at exces-
sively high volume. This applies particularly to close-to-ear monitoring such as
headphones and in-ear systems. Continued exposure to high volume sound
 can cause frequency selective or wide range hearing loss.

INTRODUCTION TO THE ZED-4 BUS MIXERS

A Technical Overview:

The Allen & Heath ZED-4 mixer has been carefully and lovingly designed in the beautiful county of Cornwall in the UK and is
manufactured alongside a wide range of professional audio mixing consoles. Many of the components used in ZED are exactly
the same as in the larger Allen & Heath products and the construction methods are also very similar — utilising individual ver-
tically mounted channel circuit boards with each rotary control fixed with a metal nut to the front panel. This provides a very
robust product that will resist damage and give years of reliable use. It also makes servicing much easier should it be required,
with the ability to remove one particular channel from the mixer at a time, or easily change a fader.

The audio circuitry is based on years of continual development and refinement, the performance of all the elements within the
mixer scrutinised and perfected to ensure the very best sound quality possible.

Mic/Line Pre-amps:
Based on the pre-amps from the PA series, the ZED series pre-amps 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. There is no “pad” switch, or pad circuit — line level signals are simply
plugged into the second stage of the pre-amp by using the line input jack socket. This has the great advantage of lower noise
when using the line input. (It is common to attenuate line level signals, the amplify them back up again which can give more
noise or hiss).

EQ:
The ZED-4 series mixers are equipped with a 4-band equaliser circuit on each input, based closely on the acclaimed GL2400
EQ. The frequency and response of each has been carefully chosen to give the maximum performance when using the EQ on a
variety of sources.

AUX system:
Six auxiliary sends are provided, two pre-fade, two post fade, and two switched pre or post fade. The Aux master level con-
trols are grouped nicely together in the master section and have AFL (after fade listen) switches for monitoring.

Groups:
The four sub-groups can be used for easy control of groups of inputs, or for applying signal processing such as compression to
groups of signals using the Group Insert connector. The groups have individual outputs and can also be sub-mixed to the main
L-R and Mono mixes.

Main Mix:
In addition to the main L-R stereo bus, there is a Mono bus which can be routed to individually, ideal for feeding low frequency
speaker systems, or creating a mono PA mix.

Mono and Stereo Channels:


The ZED-420, 428 and 436 models have a full complement of 16, 24 and 32 mono inputs respectively, plus two stereo chan-
nels, maximising the number of inputs you get. The Stereo channels are dual, so you can get 4 stereo inputs to mix before you
need to use any mono channels.

USB:
Getting audio to and from a computer easily is now a common requirement for live sound and music production. The way we
have implemented this on
