How To Use Effects

Allen&Heath releases a series of demonstration videos for the Xone:DB4 and DB2 DJ mixers      10/08/12

Allen&Heath have just recorded a series of Xone:DB4/DB2 FX Overview & Demonstration Videos with DJ and producer, Mark EG, which they say are are essential viewing for anyone wanting to understand how to use the FX and incorporate them into their individual sound.
A spokesperson told Sonic State, "Mark has a unique and original approach to music and his fifteen year reign at the very top of the UK musical movement has seen this critically acclaimed DJ, music producer and all-round enthusiast lead the way when it comes to smashing down the barriers of sound."
Offering an insight into the five main FX types and different FX variants, Mark covers:
  • Delays (DLY) Masif-Q, PingPong
  • Reverbs (VRB) HallMasif, Room Big, Plt Gold, NxtDoor
  • Resonators (RES) Reverse, Tronic
  • Modulators (MOD) Flnge Hrd, Phase D12, Ring Mod
  • Damage (DMG) Distortion, Overdrive, BitBash, Fundmentl, Dicer, Slice'nDice, Stutter
Most of the principles Mark demonstrates with the Xone:DB4 also apply to the Xone:DB2 mixer alongside some general useful tips and advice for DJs wanting to use FX in their mixes.
Users can download a ZIP file containing the loops used in the videos from the Xone Blog for experimenting with the FX on the Xone:DB mixers.
Additionally their Sound Cloud features Xone:DB FX mixes from DJs spanning many genres.
