Wizard Monitor has been developed to embrace modern on-stage mixing, and joins the GL2800M in Allen & Heath's successful monitor desk range.
MixWizard compact mixers have carved out a unique place in the pro audio pantheon of professional multipurpose consoles. For years, and in every year, Allen & Heath has supplied thousands of MixWizards for hundreds of different applications, all of which have four requirements in common - great sound, high quality, ease of use and lots of really useful features.
Mix Wizard mixing consoles feature the unique Quick Change Connector system. This allows mixers to be used in either a desktop configuration or, by simply rotating the connector pod, mounted in a standard 19" rack or flight case, taking up only 10U space. The third generation MixWizard compact mixers have even better sound quality, new preamp design, tailored EQ frequencies, an extra mono output on fader which can switched to provide a sub-bass mix from channel aux 6, and several routing changes to make the engineer's life easier. Put together with new styling, an extra lamp socket, new Sys-Link options and backup power supply and it's easy to see that the best is now even better.
With the same functionality as its larger sister models, the WZ3:12:2
embodies the ultimate multipurpose compact mixer, with 2 extra dual
stereo inputs for stereo sources such as keyboards or CD players.
