Well that's the problem with the ZED and it's outputs.
You can use the 4 Aux outs of course, but 2 are post fade and 2 are pre fade which isn't a big deal breaker. Each one has it's own Aux output level control. So it's just a matter of adjusting everything at the channel strip and then adjusting the output levels going into the deck to get them the way you want them to tape.
It's really a shame the 4 Aux outs didn't have a "pre/post switch" instead of being internally jumpered.
They can be changed internally to all pre or post but it requires taking each channel card out of the mixer and making that jumper change.
Doesn't sound like an easy task....and I have yet to hear from anyone here who has done that yet!
In fact I'd love to hear from anybody here who has actually gotten inside a ZED at all.....with some pictures!
I guess the ZED isn't old enough or breaking fast enough for anyone to really dig into them yet or start the "modding"!
You could also use the Studio outs or a combination of Aux and Studio's or even the Main master outputs. Some of the outputs can be switched from stereo to mono as well...
I've also heard some people using the channel insert jacks as "Sends" which would be like having a "direct out".
So really it's all a matter of what works best for you and how you want to go about it.
You just have to setup it up, hit record on the tape deck and let er fly!
All analog including analog EQ.
4 track A/A (analog to analog). Hehe
