Allen & Heath has chosen the forthcoming Pro Light & Sound exhibition (Frankfurt, April 6-9, Booth # B22 in Hall 8.0) to debut additions to its portfolio of live sound mixers. Allen & Heath will unveil the latest design from its award-winning Xone range of DJ products, to be launched later in the year.
The Xone:3D is a DJ control concept that allows the user to manipulate and manage sources such as MP3s, CDs, videos and vinyl from a central interface. The Xone:3D is an amalgamation of a fully featured high performance DJ mixer, a multichannel USB soundcard and a comprehensive control surface with MIDI and PC connectivity. This versatile product has 14 stereo inputs and 10 stereo outputs, and can simultaneously mix up to 11 stereo signals.
The Xone VF-1 1U rack universal analog stereo filter will also be making its Frankfurt debut. Intended for live and studio use, the VF-1 interfaces with the mixer to create and manipulate sophisticated audio filtering. The unit's circuitry is an enhanced version of the filters built into the Xone mixers, and offers three basic filter types: highpass, bandpass and lowpass, which can be combined to create further filter types. The VF-1 has MIDI capability, and also contains an envelope follower, LFO and resonance control. A RIAA preamp version, called the Xone VF-1R, is also available.
Allen & Heath will be showcasing products from across its current portfolio, including the MixWizard“ range of multi-purpose compact consoles, which debuted at the 2004 show, the GL Series of multi-purpose live sound consoles, the ML range of dual function VCA desks, the PA Series of compact passive and powered mixers, and the iDR DSP Series.
