10 Best hybrid mixers Reviews:

1. Allen & Heath ZEDi-10FX – Compact Hybrid Audio Mixer/4×4 USB Interface with 61 Studio Quality FX (AH-ZEDi-10FX)

Features :

  • The compact ZED range of mixers feature the same high-level audio and build quality as A&H’s large format touring consoles, with separate internal channel boards, Neutrik connectors and every pot fixed to the chassis.
  • GS-Pre XLR microphone preamps, developed from those featured in the highly acclaimed GS-R24 studio console, these provide exceptionally low noise, massive headroom and plenty of clean gain for a full, warm sound that brings the best out of any microphone. Two HiZ connections also allow direct connection of high impedance sources such as electric, electro-acoustic or bass guitars and most clip or stick-on pickups for acoustic instruments, without the need for a separate DI box.
  • A 100Hz High Pass Filter on every mono input allows unneeded low frequencies to be removed, then the 3-band MusiQ EQ uses carefully selected frequencies to ensure your sound sculpting is always musical. Cut or boost high, mids and lows to get the tone you’re after without the fear of going wrong!
  • A built-in, studio quality multi-FX unit provides 61 different, tweakable FX types including reverbs, delays and modulation with tap tempo to keep everything in time. These are not your average compact mixer FX either, using algorithms developed entirely in-house by our DSP experts and derived from those found in our flagship digital consoles.
  • A built-in, high quality, 96kHz 4×4 USB interface makes it easy to capture or stream the whole mix or individual channels with ease. With options to route Aux and FX sends it can even be used to add FX and processing from a computer. It’s also class compliant and does not require drivers, meaning not just Mac and Windows computers can be connected, but also many mobile devices such as tablets or even smart phones.
  • 4 x Mic/Line Inputs, 2 x Stereo ( 2 Left, 2 Right), 2 USB Audio

Buying Guide: What to Consider When Select hybrid mixers

Price

How much should you expect to spend on a product like this? Is it a one-off cost, or is there some kind of recurring element?

When it comes to hybrid mixers, a great value can come in many different forms. It could be a lower price, impeccable construction, and design, or higher durability. We’ll cover all of these different factors below, where we’re sharing our top picks for the best hybrid mixers for the money. We’ll go over everything consumers should know to get a great value out of their hybrid mixers!

Durability 

The phrase “people get what they pay for” is especially true when it comes to hybrid mixers. The range in durability from person to person can be pretty substantial depending on the materials used in the construction. If someone saves $100 on a hybrid mixers, but it wears out in 1 month, are they really getting a good value?

Compare that to a hybrid mixers that costs $50 more but wears out after 1 or 2 years. Most people would argue that the second option is the better deal over the long term. Before purchasing, you should consider how long you want to have the hybrid mixers and then read reviews to make sure you know how long you can expect it to last.

Consider Where You Purchase 

 

A vast majority of people now buy their hybrid mixers online rather than going to a brick-and-mortar physical location. That’s largely because online shopping offers greater convenience, and many brick-and-mortar stores can be confusing when it comes to their models, pricing, and types.

While people can’t try out an online hybrid mixers the way they can in a store, brands often come with generous trials. These allow people to try out the hybrid mixers for a while and return it if they’re unhappy.

In addition, many online hybrid mixers are more affordable than their in-store counterparts, because they have less overhead and have cut out the middlemen to pass savings directly to the consumer. If you purchase online, make sure to check to see if they will have to pay extra for shipping or not. A lot of the new companies offer free shipping, but not all.

Types of hybrid mixers

Before even thinking about all the different hybrid mixers available,  You should choose the product types that will be ideal for your task.

Design

Choosing a product based on a design that people will love can be tough. Just because you might like the look and style of it, doesn’t mean it’s the best. Below are some steps you can follow that I’ve used in the past when making decisions on which product designs to choose. Today, a lot of e-commerce sites have the same products. Naturally, it means people use product photos and videos to find the best item. Some of the tips in this article will help you choose or design a successful product.

  • Dimensions. How big are these products?
  • Materials. What are they made from? Is there an advantage to choosing one material over another?
  • Generic characteristics. What sort of features do products in this category include?
  • Product-specific functionality. Do certain products have key characteristics that others don’t? 
  • “Vs.” comparisons. Wireless or wired? Portable or desktop? Metal or wood? These are the key A/B-style decisions typically made early in the buying process.

The Verdict

Finally, we hope that our reviews about these hybrid mixerss will help you to choose your ideal product available on the maker. The question remains, how many of these hybrid mixers will you use and how often? Some manufacturers come out with newer hybrid mixers every few months. This is because they know that people want the better hybrid mixers. It’s all a matter of choice and your budget. The good news is that the features of good hybrid mixers tend to trickle down in price. If you start off with a cheaper version, chances are you can afford the more advanced versions of it a few months later.
