Allen & Heath Launches Xone:96


Allen & Heath (DJ) has launched its new flagship analogue DJ Mixer - Xone:96. It takes the analogue soul of the universally acclaimed Xone:92 and re-delivers it, enhanced and with state-of-the-art digital connectivity.

Allen & Heath’s Senior Product Manager, David Morbey, is justifiably excited: “Xone:96 has it all. The huge, detailed, space-shaking Xone analogue sound, a refined, precision 4-band EQ with Xone:VCF filters and crunch harmonic distortion, plus a dual 32-bit USB soundcard (24 channels @ 96kHz) with Traktor Scratch certification straight out of the box.”

With a familiar layout of beautifully tactile controls and ground-breaking audio tools that allow the development of an individual’s signature sound, Xone:96 enables users to easily connect their entire rig, from laptops and turntables, to pedals, synths and drum machines. There are two dedicated FX sends, four stereo input channels with 4-band EQ, two stereo inputs with all-new 3-band parametric EQ, two auxiliary stereo return channels and a separate master insert for outboard FX hardware.

Underlining the professional club credentials of Xone:96 is a new, second and completely independent headphone cueing system, which taken alongside the dual soundcard, allows for smoother set transitions and back-to-back performances. Dedicated booth outputs using a new 3-band booth EQ facilitate the tuning of a venue’s monitor rig and artists using complex, hybrid, multi-channel software will celebrate the simplicity of using a single USB to connect their computer to Xone:96.

As would be expected, Xone:96 features industrial build quality, which can be relied upon to comfortably withstand the demands of packed schedules, night after night.

David Morbey commented, “The launch of Xone:96 marks a highly significant moment for us, stemming as it does from our determination to take account of and act on feedback from the DJ community. The status of Xone:92 as an undisputed classic was something we took very seriously when developing Xone:96. It was clear that we couldn’t afford to lose its essence but also that we should seek to exceed the expectations of those who were pushing us to deliver another cutting-edge mixer. It isn’t overstating the case to say every fader, knob, button and switch has been subject to a forensic level of attention. Xone:96 is the answer to every question we were asked.”
