Allen & Heath’s all singing, all dancing digital mixer is the (four channel) Xone:DB4, a model full of connection possibilities including USB for your laptop as well as traditional RCA ports for CDJs and vinyl turntables. The four channels are flanked by two of Allen & Heath’s well-loved resonant filters that include hi pass, low pass and band pass modes with resonance and cut off control. Perhaps one of the most practical developments on this mixer is the useful input matrix that means you can reassign input channels on the front panel without the need to re plug the channels on the rear of the unit. This digital mixer is also a high grade 4in/4out audio interface delivering 96kHz/24bit resolution.
To top off the feature set, there is a comprehensive Quad FX core that allows for different FX on each of the four channels. The delays, reverbs, modulators, resonators and damage FX all have patch libraries of different variations for each effect type. Each channel has the capability to sample phrases and replay them as loops, including the ability to recall those loops for later use in the mix. Furthermore, the proprietary X:Link connection ports give you the option of adding the Xone:K series controllers to your set up as well as full MIDI control capabilities, and you have a powerful mixer that can withstand the demands of professional use.
