There are plenty of companies making mixers, but Allen & Heath believe they’ve got a very special selling point: they’re truly passionate about what they do and understand what their customers do. This isn’t just something that gets reflected in glossy brochures, it’s something you hear every time you use an Allen & Heath mixer. Every console has been meticulously designed to deliver the clearest and cleanest replication of the original sound, and that sound tells you a lot about the people who created it. Listen to a bunch of engineers talking about Allen & Heath mixers and you’ll probably hear words like ‘transparency’, ‘clarity’ when considering the signal path and with processing such as equalisers ‘warmth’, ‘depth’ and ‘fullness’ used a lot. Those characteristics don’t come about by accident – they tweak, tease, experiment and compare over many months to perfect each console they design, getting the very best from every component. They only introduce a new product when they’re convinced that it sounds fabulous!
