This desk is fantastic. If you?re in the market for a hybrid setup, want to either get lots of channels in with EQ , do some of all of your mixing with analogue summing or both then, this is for you.

Dealing with the analogue characteristics of the desk, the preamps a really nice, very quiet and clean. The EQ is fantastic, very musical, you can really isolate the frequencies you want without the harshness you can get from cheaper desks or sometimes in the box eq (although that still has its uses!).

The firewire implementation is rock solid and the latency I achieve with a mediocre PC is hardly noticeable, although I mostly track with the channel analogue input monitored anyway. The D/A conversion seems clean and I?ve not noticed and problems with clicks, pops or any other problems I?m used to solving with USB interfaces. No fiddling with the buffers or anything like that for the first time ever!

Using this in a mix is where it really shines. You get a lovely image with this board, nice separation between the instruments and a sort of indefinable sparkle and warmth that I?ve not achieve in my home studio before. I?m not saying you can?t do it in the box or whatever, but for me, this is the sound I want and this desk lets me get there easily and it?s fun to mix the old school way.

The MIDI implementation is OK. It?s fine if you have a DAW that has a learn function. I was able to customize my transport and function buttons very quickly for Cubase, and I?m pretty happy, although I would have liked to see a return loop through firewire or MIDI cables so you could have the transport buttons actually illuminate their status. The fader=midi function is fine and works well/easy to setup as well as the 4 dedicated midi faders. Allen and heath provide a Cubase xml template, which is a good starting point. The thing I really don?t understand is the implementation of the rotaries? they are not endless. I would use them to change send levels and such on selected channels, so when moving between channels you?d get a jump whenever you changed a setting. Not really useful.

In general the quality of this unit is superb. Really nicely put together and solid. The only thing that let this down was that one of the AUX sends seemed to be blocked in some way and wouldn?t accept jack plug. Thomann were very good and offered to repair or refund me (currently no stock to replace). Because this is a minor problem, I chose to hang on to the desk, I?m not likely to use all 4 sends at once any time soon. Also since I bought this unit there?s been a massive price hike on it, so getting my money back and buying elsewhere would be prohibitive.

Nice Studio Gear!

This little console is well adapted for a project studio : good interfacing, little latency, nice preamps, EQ, converters, interesting routing.
One negative point the Midi processing is not easy to configure (Logic), or unusable (Pro Tools).

perfect for recording

I bought the allen and heath zed r 16 a few years ago.
Since then i have been working constantly with it on a daily basis.
i love it .
Connecting an extra 8 preamps through adat gave me the possibility to record 26 channels simultaniously.
I use it live and it eliminated the need to bring an effectsrack.
Running it through the daw gives me the option to use daw plugins live on the separate channels.
The many options on how to route your signal is awesome compaired to many other recording/livedesks out there.
the sound is very clean and transparant and the multichannel interface works like a charm.
I highly recommend this desk to everyone who wants to buy something usefull.
This is not a toy but it is one of the most versatile pieces of equipment that you can ever own. if mine would be stolen i would buy the same thing the same day again.
