The Xone:DB4 is a truly ground-breaking mixer and by far the most advanced product that Allen & Heath has designed. Every feature has been meticulously researched with a view to offering DJs ultimate creativity. Based on the iLive pro-touring FX system, Allen & Heath developed FX algorithms with BPM conscious parameters and tight spectral control, customized to perfectly fit the DJ environment.
As the loops and FX are automatically synchronized to the tempo of the track, it is very easy to build some amazing grooves and soundscapes without problems of latency, low fidelity and the general hassle often associated with using software and laptops. The icing on the cake is the flexible input matrix, where any audio source can be selected on any or all of the channels. Different processing can be applied to the same track on separate channels and you can fade between them, or a phrase sampled in the looper of one channel can be added to the mix later in the track.
The Allen & Heath digital design team has done an incredible job to ensure that this is one of the most innovative and exciting DJ mix tools to date. Every mixer in the Xone series is built by Allen & Heath. At any time of the day or night, across the globe, there is an Allen & Heath mixer out there working hard, sounding great and making life a little easier for the person at the controls. Back in the early 70s, Allen & Heath hand-built consoles in a tiny factory in London for elite bands like Pink Floyd and The Who. Today, Allen & Heath customers are spread across almost every environment imaginable, including touring, theatres, churches, nightclubs, TV and radio stations, recording studios and countless other places where great sound matters.
