Allen & Heath Xone 4D Advanced Midi Controller Mixer
The Allen & Heath Xone 4D controller and mixer continues to entwine the seamless integration of computerized digital media into the world of traditional DJing, but with a further enhanced feature set.
The Allen & Heath Xone 4D combines a fully featured, high specification professional analogue DJ mixer with 105 MIDI controllers and 227 MIDI messages. New features for the high-end 4D include the new 20-channel inputs that Allen & Heath-designed. The sound card enables endless possibilities for your mixing potential.
If that wasn’t enough, the Allen and HEath Xone 4D has a totally new 20 channel 96 kHz / 24-bit soundcard connecting via wide-bandwidth USB 2.0 USB. It uses 24 bit stereo Analogue to Digital converters and Digital to Analogue converters, meaning the Xone 4D turns digital computer music files into actual audio signals that can be amplified and played. This means you no longer have to rely on your laptop, you can store converted music on the soundcard for portable DJing.
DJkit believe all the above features allow Xone 4D to be a progressive mixer and controller that has been developed in conjunction with some of the world’s most cutting-edge DJ/producers.
The midi controller has 227 MIDI control messages available from 105 separate MIDI controls. You will never get bored with a total of 50 switches available allowing you to personalize your mixes.
Allen & Heath Xone 4D Bundles
Following the revolutionary Xone:3D, the new Xone:4D DJ mixer with built in MIDI controller now has a 24bit sound card and a great new look and UV light sensitive white screening so the controller data will glow under UV light.
The xone:4D will do everything that the 3D could do, and more. It enables DJs to greatly extend the capability of their digital setup,for example running 4 simultaneous decks in Native Instruments Traktor 3, or by being able to achieve genuine multi-track recording of their sets in applications such as Ableton Live or ProTools. The Xone4D should soon be given Traktor Scratch approval by Native Instruments, enabling full compatibility with their encoded vinyl system.
Of course, the most noticeable visible element about the xone4D is the new style. Allen & Heath have developed it in response to many people’s requests for panels which are easier to read in low light (all the white screening is in Ultra Violet sensitive paint, which glows when exposed to UV light), and for the Xone design to become more stylish and representative of contemporary design.
The XONE:4D has evolved from our class-leading, revolutionary XONE:3D, the unique performance DJ controller.
The Xone:4D enables the seamless integration of computer-based digital media into the traditional DJ workspace, with an enhanced feature set. It combines a fully featured, high specification professional analogue DJ mixer with 105 MIDI
controls with a completely new, 96 kHz / 24-bit, 20 channel Allen & Heath-developed USB 2.0 soundcard. The progressive XONE:4D has been developed in conjunction with some of the world’s most cutting-edge DJ/producers.
The mixer section is based on the award-winning Xone:92 and features 4 triple-input stereo channels, 3 band total
kill EQ, 2 stereo effects sends, 2 VCF filters with LFO, VCA crossfader and dual-rail channel faders, DJ mic and cue monitoring system.
The assignable LFO has an editable step-filter function, encouraging creative combinations of the tempo-detecting BPM counter and tap tempo. Each MIDI fader becomes a filter cut-off frequency, enabling users to “draw” their own tempo-locked LFO waveform.
A new BPM section includes a 16-bit tempo detecting circuit, which constantly monitors the BPM and outputs a MIDI clock to help synchronize MIDI-controlled music replay software with external source program material.
Stereo FX sends can be used with external equipment such as effects units and samplers and both FX sends can be routed to the USB audio system and sent to the PC.
The FX2 hardware output can be switched to act as a Main Mix record output.
The Xone:4D provides full control of external MIDI devices including the most sophisticated DJ performance computer environments. There are 105 MIDI controls on the mixer surface, and with the use of the shift function,
they allow 227 mappable MIDI messages to be sent. The BPM counter provides MIDI start/stop and clock, while a fader pickup algorithm allows seamless movement between the layers.
Xone:4D features a 20-channel USB2.0 soundcard, featuring 4 analogue stereo inputs and outputs, transmitting audio at up to 96kHz with 24 bit resolution. It uses USB to interface the mixer audio and MIDI to a PC where the sound may be manipulated in real time using any music software application.
The soundcard also produces SPDIF, COAX and optical digital inputs and outputs. A low latency ASIO driver is provided for audio streaming between the 4D and PC, and each mixer channel has its own soundcard input routing switches, allowing flexible output to or from the PC.
The mixer’s front panel offers an XLR microphone input with 2-band EQ control for DJ or guest mic, and 1/4” TRS jack and 3.5mm mini-jack headphone connections.
The build quality remains the same robust individual PCB modular construction and of course, the 4D now stands out from the crowd with its clean new artwork with UV sensitive white legend for outstanding late-night visibility.
