Allen & Heath WZ3 12:2 MixWizard Rack Mountable Mixer
The Allen & Heath MIXWIZARD WZ3 12:2 12 into 2 Live Mixer With Built In Effects. Multipurpose compact mixer, with great sound, high quality and lots of really useful features. Now in its 3rd generation, the legendary MixWizard range builds on its market leading status by adding a new mic preamp design and advanced grounding scheme, which both further enhance sonic quality. Other improvements include individual phantom power switches, channel signal indicators, lamp socket and backup supply capability. Internal configuration options for channel aux sends and direct output are now on pluggable jumpers for user convenience, and the mixer is presented in a stylish new package.
8 mic / line channels with 4 band EQ, HPF, individual phantom power, 6 auxes, mute switch, signal and peak indicator leds and 100mm smooth action faders. A configurable direct out and insert using all-metal TRS jacks are provided.
Dual Stereo Inputs
Two dual stereo input channels with: ST1/3 and ST2/4 inputs have separate gain and on/off controls and can therefore be selected individually or mixed together. ST1/3 inputs can be routed direct to LR for even more versatility.
Stereo Mix with AB out
Main output controlled by 100mm faders with 12 segment 3 colour metering with insert. A-B output for additional L&R stereo output selectable pre or post L&R faders. Unique underpanel mode switch to configure A-B as a local monitor output for additional stereo monitoring.
Dedicated Mono Output
Mono fader feeds mono XLR output. Source select L+R sum or aux 6 mix for creating separate mono/C or aux fed sub mix.
6 Auxiliary Sends
6 auxiliaries: 1-2 prefade (option: link to follow pre/post switch), 3-4 switchable pre/post fade (option: permanently prefade) and 5- and 6 post fade (option to follow pre/post switch). Internal option to configure stereo channel L signal to odd auxes and R signal to even auxes. Aux masters are rotary controls with TRS outputs. The aux busses can be monitored in mono or related stereo pairs.
4 Band EQ plus HPF
Mono channels have separate controls for sweep and cut/boost on mid bands. HPF @ 100Hz is switchable.
2 Stereo Returns
TRS line inputs, routed via level controls to L&R mix. ST1 can feed aux 1-4. Note: the internal FX returns to ST1. The ST1 input allows external FX to be mixed in.
