Allen & Heath has launched the Xone:43, a 4 + 1 channel analog DJ mixer with Xone filters, X:FX routing, 3 band EQ, VCA faders, and an adjustable crossfader.
At the heart of the mixer is the renowned analog Voltage Control Filter (VCF) system offering HPF, BPF, LPF, frequency sweep and mild to wild resonance control. The Xone:43’s intuitive and simple to use X:FX feature provides a single control per channel over the send/return to work with external FX units. X:FX can also be routed to the Xone filter to add layers of FX and filtering.
In addition to the 4 phono/line channels, Xone:43 features a flexible mic / aux input with XLR and phono connectors and 2-band EQ for tonal balance. The replaceable crossfader has three curve settings and is also compatible with Innofader for enhanced scratch performance.
The main mix output and mic input are on professional standard balanced XLR’s, and there is a dedicated record output. The Xone:43 is equipped with a simple headphone monitoring section, which offers both 3.5mm and 1/4″ headphone sizes, with level, cue / mix control and the option for split cue monitoring.
