UK - Allen & Heath (DJ) has responded to customer demand with the launch of its new flagship analogue DJ mixer - Xone:96.
Xone:96 takes the analogue soul of the Xone:92 and re-delivers it, enhanced and with state-of-the-art digital connectivity, says the company.
Senior product manager David Morbey comments, “Xone:96 has it all. The huge, detailed, space-shaking Xone analogue sound, a refined, precision 4-band EQ with Xone:VCF filters and CRUNCH harmonic distortion, plus a dual 32-bit USB soundcard (24 channels @ 96kHz) with Traktor Scratch certification straight out of the box.”
With a familiar layout of tactile controls and audio tools that allow the development of an individual’s signature sound, Xone:96 enables users to easily connect their entire rig, from laptops and turntables, to pedals, synths and drum machines. There are two dedicated FX sends, four stereo input channels with 4-band EQ, two stereo inputs with all-new 3-band parametric EQ, two auxiliary stereo return channels and a separate master insert for outboard FX hardware.
Underlining the professional club credentials of Xone:96 is a new, second and completely independent headphone cueing system, which taken alongside the dual soundcard, allows for smoother set transitions and back-to-back performances.
David Morbey concludes: “The launch of Xone:96 marks a highly significant moment for us, stemming as it does from our determination to take account of and act on feedback from the DJ community. The status of Xone:92 as an undisputed classic was something we took very seriously when developing Xone:96.
“It was clear that we couldn’t afford to lose its essence but also that we should seek to exceed the expectations of those who were pushing us to deliver another cutting-edge mixer. It isn’t overstating the case to say every fader, knob, button and switch has been subject to a forensic level of attention. Xone:96 is the answer to every question we were asked.”
