Allen & Heath Introduces Xone:K1 Controller

By  | 

Allen & Heath’s DJ range has expanded with the introduction of its new Xone:K1 MIDI controller.

The Xone:K1 features six endless rotary encoders with push switches, 12 analog pots, four linear faders, and 30 backlit performance switches with three-color illumination. The new controller allows for comprehensive mapping for both DJ and production software—including Traktor Pro, Ableton, Virtual DJ, and MixVibes—through its 52 assignable hardware controls.

The Xone:K1 is powered via USB, thus requiring no external power. The unit can be mixed-and-matched with other Xone:K series controllers and daisy-chained via Aleen & Heath’s X:LINK protocol. Users can also connected directly to the Xone 23C, DB2, and DB4 mixers in this fashion. Additionally, the Xone:K1 is lightweight and hard-wearing with its steel front panel and nutted pot construction, and a black padded case that doubles as a stand is available separately .
