What about the sound quality? Allen&Heath’s chief designer, Mike Griffin, has been at the forefront of audio innovation for many years and has developed the designs for their spectacularly successful MixWizard and GL series professional live mixers. Mike is always striving to produce the best possible sound for our mixers, and for ZED has produced the ‘DuoPre™’, a mic preamplifier which sounds as sweet as a nut, as pure as the driven snow. The DuoPre™ combines an optimised line input circuit together with the microphone preamp circuit so that it will not colour or distort your sound, will give you lots of headroom and give you a truly professional feel.
