ANY ADVICE FOR USING ALLAN & HEATH MIXER INTERFACE?

Post by dandrues@yahoo.com » Fri Oct 20, 2017 10:35 am

Hi, Thanks for checking this out. I'm having a recording problem using an "Auria Approved" Allan & Heath Zed FX mixer as my USB interface. What I hear through the headphones, and what is recorded, is acoustic guitar that sounds heavily "effected" with echo and reverb, and overall bad sound. Is this a problem you have heard about or have any experience with? Are Allan & Heath mixers OK to use? Would I be better off just getting a Scarlet or Presonis interface?

All of the A&H Zed Mixers work with iOS and Auria Pro. Do you have the effects enabled on your Zed mixer? Try turning the Aux 1 and 2 masters all the way down (to the left) above the red Master faders to see if that improves the sound output.

TheZedi mixers are designed to do direct monitoring through the mixer. Go into settings, then the record options and turn off direct monitoring. Do you have the FX model? If you do, you might also want to go to the output matrix settings and select outs 3 and 4 instead of 1 and 2. What this will do is bring in the recorded tracks on St3 instead of St2. That way it will be independent from the ZEDi mixer effects return.

I have the ZEDi 10FX and it really is a wonderful interface with Auria once you get it set right.

I just got a ZEDi-10 and I can't get it set up to play nicely with Auria. I am able to get sound from the mixer to the iPad and record it, but I can't get any sound from the iPad to the mixer. I want to be able to make some beats in Auria, listen to them play through the mixer while adding outboard synths to Auria. Then add more hardware synths to the beats and synths recorded to Auria. I admit I am not good with hardware mixers or the input / output matrices in Auria, so detailed explanations are best. Thanks!
