The Allen and Heath GL2400-32 is a 32 channel mixer with 4 buses and 6 Aux Sends. The Preamps are great, as is the EQ which is very musical. Allen and Heath also has a great reputation for quality and reliability. This console adds a host of new features including a 7 x 4 matrix with innovative mic cross-patching to create ambient enhanced additional mixes such as mono or stereo IEM and recording feeds. Whether you're mixing FOH, monitors, or both, recording live or in the studio, installed in a busy conference center or house of worship, out on the road touring or earning its keep in rental stock, the new Allen and Heath GL2400 provides the perfect solution. The stylish new design uses individual nutted pot cards in a rugged, all-steel small footprint chassis, ideal for flightcasing or the space-limited venue. Performance is top-flight with the latest extended headroom preamp design, responsive 4-band EQ, and a new ultra-quiet mix head amp. The GL2400-32 includes other thoughtful new touches such as the pluggable option jumpers, XLR lamp sockets and Sys-Link V2 expandability.
When mixing Front-of-House on the GL2400-32, the monitors can be set pre-insert as well as pre-EQ to prevent your house mix EQ and compression from affecting the stage mix. Per channel aux switching means you can mix pre-fade with post-fade sends such as theatre radio mics and sound effects. As a monitor console, the aux masters have faders, inserts, mutes, meters, and balanced XLR drive. You even get a fader controlled engineer' wedge feed. The Groups and LR mixes are still available to create yet more sends. In monitor mode the GL2400 can provide up to 10 mixes, for example 6 wedge and 2 stereo IEM.
The GL2400-32 takes advantage of Allen and Heath's new mic preamp and has an extended 74dB gain range with massive headroom able to deal with the widest range of signals right up to +34dBu. From a new low-noise mix amp through responsive 4-band EQ to the differential balanced +26dBu outputs, every stage has been carefully designed to ensure optimum gain structure and the best sonic performance possible.
There are 3 master faders on the GL2400-32 Mixer. A configurable M fader lets you create an LR sum mono fill, an engineers monitor wedge feed, or a dedicated center or sub-bass speaker mix from Aux 6 which means you can dial in exactly what you need from each channel. L, R, and M each provide a dedicated meter, mute, AFL, and balanced XLR output.
The matrix is a big feature for corporate AV work, specialized recording and broadcast feeds, and personal monitoring. Smart auto-switching of the external inputs lets you add a common mono, stereo, or independent sources to the matrix. Cross patch from the stereo channel mic breakpoints add room ambiance to your recording and IEM feeds.
Dual Stereo Channels:
These 2 multi-function channels provide a mic and 2 stereo line inputs each. Use the channels on the GL2400-32 as mic inputs while the 4 stereos are independently routed to LR, or combine stereo sources such as backing tracks and reverbs while the mics are patched elsewhere. Or use conventional stereo channels while the second inputs provide additional returns and the mics patch into the matrix for ambiance.
