News Allen & Heath Xone:DB4

4+ Channel Mixer from Allen & Heath belonging to the Xone series

New info has leaked regarding the Xone: DB4, which will be unveiled at this week-end's BPM show.

 

The main new features are:

  • Quad FX Core

The heart of the Xone:DB4 is the Quad FX Core DSP engine, enabling each channel to have its own FX bank and BPM detection system, which adjusts FX and loops to the tempo of the music. There are 5 studio quality FX types optimised for DJ use – delays, reverbs, modulators, resonators and damage – plus each FX type has a patch library of different effect variations. Each FX bank has a dedicated expression control and a rotary pot to set the wet/dry level, whilst further tweaking can be performed using the global controllers in the FX master section.

  • Looper

Each channel has a built-in looper, with selectable loop length from 1/16 beat to 4 bars.The :DB4 will always record the full 4 bars, so the loop can be expanded or shrunk at will.

  • Filters

Xone:DB4 comes equipped with the Xone dual filter system.

  • Source select

Each music channel can select any of the available stereo music sources: Analogue Line 1–4 (switchable to Phono on 2–3), Digital 1–4 or USB 1–4.

  • EQ / Filter

Each music channel has a 3-band EQ that can be configured as standard asymmetric EQ (+6/-25dB), Isolator (+6dB/OFF with a 24dB/octave slope), or reconfigured as a High-Pass/Low-Pass filter system with adjustable resonance. EQ knob pointers change colour to show which type of equalization is active.

  • Mic/Line Input

The Mic/Line input has 2-band EQ, gain, cue and mix level. This can also be routed to channel 1 for adding FX.

  • Integral Soundcard

A built-in (24-bit / 96kHz), multi-channel, patchable USB2 soundcard allows replay and recording from audio software for 4 stereo sends and 4 stereo returns.
