The Allen & Heath Xone DB4 is one of the most revolutionary, ground-breaking and advanced professional DJ mixers that has ever been designed by Allen & Heath. Every single feature packed into this outstanding mixer has all been meticulously and carefully researched to bring you the ultimate piece of equipment to aid in live DJ creativity.
|Xone:DB4 - Ultimate Professional Club DJ Mixer|
The Xone DB4 is based on the iLive pro-touring FX system, which helped create specific FX algorithms. The unit comes with BPM conscious tight spectrum control and parameters, that have all been custom made to fit the DJ environment. With all the FX and loops automatically synchronised to the tempo of your track, this allows you to build, effortlessly, incredible sounding grooves and soundscapes without any latency or low fidelity issues. There is also the added benefit of not having to deal with the hassle often associated with using laptops and software.
Allen and Heath's Xone:DB4 also has a flexible input matrix which will allow any audio source to be selected, on any, or all channels. You can also apply different processing to the same tracks on individual channels which you can fade between. There is also the option to add a phrase sample in the loop of one channel and add that to your mix later on in that track. The digital design team responsible for bringing this mixer to life have done an outstanding job, making sure that this mixer is one of the most innovative, ground-breaking, exciting DJ mixing tools to date.
Powerful Quad FX Core
The powerful Quad FX Core DSP engine is what keeps the Xone:DB4 alive. Each individual channel has its own BPM detection system and FX bank. As a result, all time-reliant FX and loops are adjusted to the tempo of the music. Included are five studio grade FX types exclusive for DJ use; reverbs, resonators, damage, delays and modulators. In addition, each FX type has a patch library of alternate effect variations. Each of the FX banks has an allocated expression control and a rotary pot used to set the level of wet/dry. Additional tweaking can be achieved through the use of the global controllers in the master FX section.
Upgrade To Pro-X-Fader
Pro-X-Fade uses conductive plastic tracks and a slightly wider stem for increased fader life. Pro-X-Fade also enables the DJ to alter both the feel of the fader and the cut-in point to suit their individual style. Please ask a member of staff from The DJ Shop for purchasing and fitting information.
X:LINK uses a standard RJ45 connector, which then distributes power and data providing a connection to X:LINK compatible devices, freeing up USB ports on your computer.
Every channel has an integrated looper, with selectable loop length from 1/16 beat to 4 bars. Allen & Heath's DB4 will always record the full 4 bars so that the loop can be expanded or shrunk at will.
DB4 comes fitted with the excellent Xone dual filter system.
Any music channel can select either of the available stereo music sources: You have Analogue Line 1-4 (these can be switched to Phono on 2-3), along with Digital 1-4 or USB 1-4.
Other great features include:
EQ and Filter
All music channels have a 3-band EQ, which can be configured as standard asymmetric EQ (+6/-26dB), Isolator (+6dB/OFF with a 24dB/octave slope), or reconfigured as a High-Pass/Low-Pass filter system with adaptable resonance. Equaliser knob pointers change colour to determine which type of equalization is active.
The Mic/Line input has 2-band EQ, gain, cue and mix level. This can also be routed to all main input channels overriding Matrix analogue input channel 1 for adding FX and accessing the loopers.
A built-in, high quality (24-bit / 96kHz), multi-channel, fully patchable USB2 soundcard allows replay and recording from audio software for four stereo sends and four stereo returns.
User-defined settings such as meter mode, BPM range, USB audio routing scheme and display brightness can be saved to a USB key for recall on another DB4.
All controls (except Mic and Phones level) send MIDI data, and the mixer can double up as a MIDI controller via the MIDI shift button, allowing the Loop and FX selection controls to send MIDI data without changing the mixer settings. DB4 can generate internal MIDI clock which can be used to control the tempo of a connected DAW via USB and the ability to change the mixers MIDI channel.
Booth, record, and phones – source selectable and level trim. Booth and main – phase and level trim controls.
High Visibility Display
The OLED display is distinctly visible, even in bright sunlight, and displays channel FX selection and current BPM, along with being an easy interface for the Menu setup functions.
DB4’s lightweight aluminium chassis is designed to make touring with the console easy.
