A&H Extends MIDI Controller Range

Xone:K1 makes its debut      06/08/14

Allen & Heath has introduced the Xone:K1 to extend the MIDI controller range of its elite Xone DJ line, joining the successful Xone:K2 controller. They say that the K1 has a flexible layout allowing users to define and customise an individual workflow and mixing experience, and works with all leading DJ software. The Xone:K1 is easily configurable to allow fast access for setting levels, triggering hot cues, adding effects and instant looping to relieve the DJ from focusing on the computer screen.

Featuring 6 endless rotary encoders with push switch, 12 analogue pots, 4 linear faders, and 30 backlit performance switches with three-colour illumination, the Xone:K1 allows comprehensive mapping to leading DJ and production software, such as Traktor Pro, Ableton, Virtual DJ and MixVibes, offering a total of 52 assignable hardware controls, more than any controller of its type.

Powered over USB so that a separate power cable is not needed, Xone:K1 can be mixed n' matched with other Xone:K series controllers and daisy-chained using Allen & Heath's proprietary X:LINK protocol without the need to carry a separate USB hub. X:LINK also enables DJs to expand their set-up by connecting directly to Allen & Heath's Xone 23C, DB2 and DB4 mixers.

Xone:K1 is both lightweight and hard-wearing, with a steel front panel and employing Allen & Heath's nutted pot construction. A black padded case is available as an accessory, which doubles as a stand, bringing the K1 up to the same height as most pro DJ mixers.

Xone product specialist, Greg Ibbotson, told us, "Xone:K1 is a valuable and key addition to the Xone family, providing vast control of popular software programs, slotting into multiple DJ hardware set ups across the range with simple plug 'n play connection, and constructed to withstand life with the travelling DJ."
