Allen & Heath has introduced the GLD-112, a larger version of the popular GLD-80 mixer, with an extra bank comprising 8 control strips, increasing the channel count to 28 fader strips in 4 layers.
GLD-112 retains the same analogue-style channel processing control section complemented by a graphical 8.4 inch touch screen as the GLD-80. Four additional soft keys are included next to the faders for scene-controls and other user defined functions. A fully-customisable drag ‘n drop layout allows quick and easy assignment of inputs and mixes to fader strips. There are 28 fader strips in 4 layers, each with motorised fader, a channel LCD display which can be named and colour-coded, plus a rotary control for direct access to gain, pan and aux/FX sends. The mixer‘s local I/O comprises 4 XLR mic/line inputs, 4 XLR line outs, 4 RCA inputs, 2 RCA outputs, and digital outputs in SPDIF and AES3 formats.
Meanwhile, back in analogue, A&H also announced a new generation of its industry classic MixWizard range. Comprising the WZ4 16:2, WZ4 12:2 and WZ4 14:4:2, new 4th generation MixWizards feature enhanced styling and improved performance and functionality, including EQ in/out switching and new dual digital FX engines on the 16:2 and 12:2 models, along with an optional USB multi-track recording and playback interface card.

All models retain the highly acclaimed transparent mic pre-amp and 4-band EQ with 2 sweepable mids, high quality 100mm faders, 6 auxiliary sends, 12 segment bar graph metering, and unique QCC connector system for easy desktop, rack or flightcase mounting.
