Allen & Heath ZEDI-8 Overview

Designed to bring the signature Allen & Heath sensibility to a compact and portable frame, the ZEDi-8 is a four-channel mixer that doubles as a USB interface. On the mixer side, you get two XLR inputs, two line/instrument inputs, and two pairs of stereo line inputs. Utilize this unit's digital capabilities and you'll find yourself with two channels of conversion—analog-to-digital or vice-versa. Thus, you'll find the ZEDi-8 equally suited for live-mixing in small venues and for tracking instruments on the fly.

Should you choose use the unit as an interface, you'll find that it comes with Cubase LE, a digital audio workstation which enables you to record, sequence, and edit music, be it audio or MIDI.

In the analog realm, the ZEDi-8 is crafted with preamps modeled on the Allen & Heath GS2-R24. These channel strips aim to provide warmth, low noise, and a vast expanse of headroom. On-board EQs also come standard with the unit. Two channels feature a button that converts line-level signal into high-impedance jacks, meaning guitar players need not lug an extra DI box around should they wish to go direct into the board.

Turning your attention back to the digital side of things, you'll notice that a USB switch controls the routing of your USB output, enabling you to select how you route and separate the incoming analog signals into your DAW.

Allen & Heath ZEDI-8 Reviews

Awesome computer interface

By At Home Tech Dad
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2016-03-08

Bought this as an interface for SMAART and to do recordings with. For it's price this is the best audio interface in the sub $ range. A bit larger than other offerings, but it also has more features. I wish the plastic rim could be removed to make it a little smaller, but that's my only complaint.

Sweet spot

Finally an interface-small board combo that is really functional. I've been searching for something like this for a while now and glad bumped into ZEDi-8. I use it with my laptop for sound editing and simple one channel recordings and then when my laptop is off it serves as hub to feed my speakers with other audio sources. Just what I needed. If you own a Mac this is a plug n play scenario. Windows requires drivers, but nothing complicated. The preamps work great. Don't expect Motu or UAD, but they'll do the work and it will be presentable to say the least. Love the monitoring options and the XLR outputs on mains. This is bang for the buck, no doubt about it. Highly recommended.

question

dose it have pad ? to Attenuate the signal ?
Asked by: Behnam B.
The Zedi 8 does not have any pad switches for the input level, but the model up, the Zedi 10 (B&H # ALZEDI10), does have Line/Pad switches on channels 3 and 4 which attenuate the input level by 20 dB.

question

does it have pad ? to Attenuate the signal
Asked by: Behnam B.
No, there is no dedicated pad switch on this mixer. However, Allen & Heath's GSPre preamp stage has a wide dynamic range of 5 to 60 dB and this provides exceptionally low noise and enough headroom to accommodate a wide range of signals. The mixer also features guitar DI high-impedance jack inputs allowing guitars to be plugged straight to the mixer without the need for separate DI boxes. A low-cut filter is also provided to clean-up unwanted low-frequency noise.

question

Is the USB I/O full duplex? For example, can you play back a set of tracks from ProTools and overdub 2 more tracks onto the session using this mixer as the USB interface? I could not get Pro Tools to recognize my old ZED10FX USB inputs and outputs at the same time.
Asked by: George
It should work but there may be an issue with your settings in Pro Tools or on your console.
