Paul Van Dyk Gets Into The Xone


Here's the press release...
Allen & Heath has created a one-off special edition of its popular Xone:4D mixer controller for renowned DJ endorser, Paul van Dyk.
"The 4D is the centrepiece of my set up and is based on the way I DJ. I have two computers on stage that are synced to each other: one has the synths, keyboards and controllers hooked up to it and the other is full of the audio material. The Xone:4D gives me control of everything I am using," explains van Dyk. "I wanted rotary knobs instead of faders to give me finer control of the volume, and the feel is more precise."
Used for the first time at ADE, Paul's modified version includes VCA rotary faders rather than the standard linear faders. There is also custom-designed silk screening for the faceplate with Paul's name in UV paint.
"One of the great things about the 4D is the great sound and the fact that everything on the mixer can be fully programmed so I can set it up to give me control to do some crazy shit!" he concludes.
