Allen & Heath Xone:DB2 4-Ch Digital DJ Mixer fx and MIDI
The Xone:DB2 from Allen & Heath is an extremely high-end, 4-channel DJ mixer without a high-end price tag. This professional DJ FX mixer takes full advantage of the onboard studio-quality FX that will dominate any club system. Originally developed for Allen & Heath’s iLive pro touring system and rated by some of the best ears in the business, the FX algorithms have been painstakingly optimized for DJ use. Xone:DB2 has more than 50 FX presets divided into 5 FX types: Delays/loopers, Reverbs, Resonance, Modulation and Damage. These are studio grade FX; in fact, several legendary producers already use the DB range FX in their recordings. The Expression and Wet/Dry controls give intuitive, hands-on control for everything from subtle FX washes to total transformation. For those who want to drill down further, individual FX variations can be further modified via the rotary controls under the screen. Each of DB2’s four input channels has a full input matrix that can select from four analog (Line or RIAA), four USB, or two digital sources, allowing for a wide variety of audio sources to be connected simultaneously. The same source can also be selected on multiple channels. Xone:DB2 adopts the fresh approach to creative equalization introduced on DB4. The EQs can be used in three different modes: standard asymmetric EQ (+6/-26dB), total Kill (+6dB/OFF with a 24dB/octave slope), or high-pass/low-pass filter which lets the high control act as a low pass filter, the low becomes a high pass filter, and the mid control is an adjustable resonance for the filter. Allen & Heath is known for building high quality mixers for the last 40-plus years. At any time of 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.
