Allen & Heath Launches Serato DJ-Supported Xone:43C
Allen & Heath has introduced the Xone:43C, a new sister product to its Xone:43 mixer offering support with Serato DJ.
The Xone:43C provides the gateway to digital DJing and DVS performance with the addition of a 16-channel internal soundcard as well as an X:LINK to connect compatible Xone:K Series MIDI controllers. The 96kHz, 24-bit USB soundcard enables replay and recording from any DJ software, giving DJs the “benefits of digital DJing using the controls of a ‘real’ mixer.”
Users who purchase the Serato DJ Club Kit can use the Xone:43C with plug-and-play compatibility on Serato DJ. The unit is also Serato DVS enabled through this, eliminating the need for an external interface. The Xone:43C also allows plug-and-play connection of a Xone:K series controller via the X:LINK connection without using additional USB ports. Users can use a variety of pre-mapped functions to control cues, loops and Serato DJ FX for control decks 1 through 4.
The Xone:43C includes the analog Voltage Control Filter system, offering HPF, BPF, LPF, frequency sweep and ‘mild to wild’ resonance control. The X:FX feature provides a single control per channel over the send/return to work with external FX units, and can also be routed to the Xone filter to add layers of FX and filtering. The mixer includes 4 phono/USB and line channels, a flexible mic/aux input with XLR and phono connectors, and a 2-band EQ for tonal balance. Users can take advantage of three curve settings on the crossfader, and the unit is also compatible with Innofader for enhanced scratch performance.
The Xone:43C is shipping now. Go to Allen-Heath.com for more information and watch the launch video below.
