Allen & Heath has released a new software suite comprising new firmware and Mac configuration utility software for its mixer/controller, the Xone:3D. The updates include an improved interface for Mac users and greater MIDI functionality.
The updated utility software provides an interface – identical to the PC version - for users with Mac computers to set up and configure their 3D unit.
Key to the firmware release – v.1.10 - is the inclusion of a MIDI merge facility, which enables MIDI data from external devices to be combined with the MIDI data from the Xone:3D control surface and passed via USB to the software. The new firmware also includes full MIDI duplex, which enables MIDI data generated by the software to be sent back down the USB and out of the Xone:3D MIDI socket to an external device, such as a sequencer or sound generation module.
MIDI time clocks can now be generated either internally by the Xone:3D, or by an external device, with the 3D clock turned off. This is a great feature that enables multiple DJ set-ups to all synchronize to a common MIDI clock.
Further improvements include improved tolerance to USB clock jitter that in extreme cases could cause degradation of the soundcard audio output, smoother MIDI clock generation, and improved response of the encoders and jog wheels.
Xone:3D
The Xone:3D is the amalgamation of a high performance 4 stereo channel DJ mixer, a top spec 8-channel USB soundcard, and a comprehensive MIDI control surface with 105 different controls that can be mapped to manipulate any music software.
The unique design offers DJs and producers an integrated performance workstation, providing all necessary control on one surface. This offers flexibility during live performance or production work when the user can introduce various clips and samples, sync them with other music sources via the USB soundcard, and build a unique set.
Many famous DJ/producers have already adopted the 3D, including Paul van Dyk, Richie Hawtin, Chris Liebing, Speedy J, Richard Devine, Andy Barlow, Ralph Lawson, and Pete Tong.
