Allen & Heath has announced the new Xone:92, available in either rotary or linear Voltage Controlled Amplifier (VCA) fader options.

With more and more DJs incorporating live elements and digital effects to enhance their performances, one new feature, a MIDI controller output, offers users the unique ability to manipulate virtually any piece of outboard MIDI equipment from controls on the mixer surface.

For additional sound manipulation, the Xone:92 also incorporates two Low Frequency Oscillators (LFOs) with a tap-tempo feature and two independent filter systems. LFO depth, filter resonance and frequency can be adjusted. Channels can be assigned to either of the two filters and the VCF controls can be linked together for the simultaneous manipulation of both filters. Each filter can also be controlled by the cross-fader with the LFOs still interacting.

Allen & Heath's Xone:92 also features a new four-band +6dB EQ with infinite cut on HF and LF and -30dB available on both hi- and lo-mids. The mid EQ provides a wide cut but narrow boost to prevent cumulative gain with all controls at maximum.

Furthermore, VCA faders and filters are used throughout, so that no audio signals pass directly through the faders. As a result, there is no risk of the sound being degraded by worn components.

Other features include an active crossfader, which can be varied using a rotary control from smooth to scratch mix; two headphone outputs, 1/4" and 3.5mm jack; 2 auxiliary sends with selectable pre/post fader and crossfader; extensive channel output and cue metering; an intelligent cue system allowing pre or post EQ monitoring; and a talkover facility on mono/mic channel which attenuates music by 20dB. The new Xone:92 is the same height and width as the Xone:62 and is the same depth as a Technics 1210 turntable.

The SRP is $999.95 and the mixer will be available in February.
