It looks just like a ZED14, but one of the blue faders has turned yellow. This is pretty close to what has happened - nearly every feature is like ZED14 - great mic preamps, clean signal path, 100mm faders, USB for recording or other I/O applications. So there's 6 mic channels, 3 stereo channels, plus a dedicated effect channel (the yellow fader), with all-new DSP chip onboard. ZED Series mixers have already been extrememly popular for many applications. Having an internal effects processor makes the ZED12FX very versatile for even more users.

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-FX
ZED-12FX 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. 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. 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.
