The Model 1 has been engineered by Andy Rigby-Jones and co-designed by Richie Hawtin all under the Allen & Umbrella creating this amazinig bit of kit that will change your life forever.

Oh and just a heads up this MIXER IS NOT FREE! Give us a call for a one to one demonstration so we can show you how good it really is....

 

Stereo sends

The two AUX controls send the channel signal to the Aux mix outputs for use with external effects processors or, in some applications, local monitors. AUX 1 offers either PRE or POST FADE while AUX 2 is internally set to post fader.

Stereo returns

Two basic stereo channels for use as return inputs from external effects processors or other sources. Each return features TRIM to adjust the return signal, input DRIVE circuit, and CUE routing to both Cue A and Cue B. Each Return also feature Metering for visual feedback of the signal level, a rotary LEVEL fader to adjust Mix amount and combined Return 1-2 Low Cut EQ and Master Filter routing.

High performance phono preamps

3 high performance turntable inputs, optimized for the club environment in order to minimise the tonal imbalance between vinyl and Digital audio, and to eliminate sub frequency feedback. Each phono input has it's own Individual Turntable Earth Binding for greater flexibility.

Studio grade faders

Custom TKD 60mm faders. These twin rails faders have been carefully chosen to ensure long life and smooth operation and feature a heavy feel for greater precision.

Precision Sculpting EQ

SCULPT is a semi-parametric swept bell filter, and consist of two controls,FREQ which sets the centre frequency and CUT/BOOST which adjust the gain or a attenuation at this frequency. The level of cut/boost is asymmetric; maximum boost is limited to +8dB, while the cut is extended to -20dB. Sculpt has a wide Q and a frequency range that covers almost seven octaves.

Contouring low & high pass filters

As the name implies these two controls allow you to “contour” the frequency range of the audio signal. They consist of low Q, High-Pass and Low-Pass filters designed not to add colour to the sound as they are swept across their frequency range.

Analog overdrive

A unique feature on every input, the DRIVE control. This control allows the user to adjust the level at which the channel pre-amplifier clips the input signal, thus creating harmonic distortion as a creative effect.

DualCue

Two independent Cue systems, A and B. Cue A routes to the right hand side headphone monitor and the Cue B routes to the left hand headphone monitor. The DualCue system makes it much easier for two DJs to perform on the mixer together in "Back2Back" setups, as each can select a separate channel to monitor without interfering with the other. This feature also assists DJ's handing off to each other in a smooth and natural way.

Mixer Link

A system that allows multiple mixers to be linked together, either for use with two or more performers, or as a way to expand the number of channels. When Linked together the mixers share a common balanced mix feeding the PA and Booth monitors. In addition, the two Cue systems are joined allowing interactive cueing between multiple performers.

Master high & low pass resonant filters

The Master Filter consists of a High-Pass Filter (HPF), a Low-Pass Filter (LPF), and a resonance control (RES) to adjust the sharpness of the High-Pass filter. The Master Filter can be used as a swept frequency performance effect, or as pre-set frequency mix tool to instantly cut the Low or High frequencies of any channel routed to the Filter. Signals can be routed to the MF by the Filter select switch found on each channel.

External Power supply

Powered by an external 90W 24V universal voltage PSU. Internally, the 24 volts from the external supply, is converted to just under +/- 20V for the analogue power rails by using high frequency switching technology, giving MODEL 1 some of the highest signal headroom of any professional mixer, irrespective of its application.

Dual PSU

MODEL 1 offers the utility of powering with dual supplies. This feature - found on premium live sound and recording consoles - can offer greater security by powering the mixer simultaneously with a second supply. In scenarios such as music festivals, each supply can be powered from separate mains phases. In the event of one phase going down the other supply will automatically take over powering the mixer.

Built in the UK

Built in the UK with our partners DigiCo and Allen & Heath using alloy/steel chassis for maximum strength and minimum weight optimised for touring, club and performance situations.

Quad FX Core

The heart of the Xone:DB4 is the powerful Quad FX Core DSP engine, enabling each channel to have its own FX bank and BPM detection system, which automatically adjusts all time-related FX and loops to the tempo of the music. There are 5 studio quality FX types optimised for DJ use - delays, reverbs, modulators, resonators and damage – plus each FX type has a patch library of different effect variations. Each FX bank has a dedicated expression control and a rotary pot to set the wet/dry level, whilst further tweaking can be performed using the global controllers in the FX master section.

X:LINK

X:LINK uses a standard RJ45 connector and distributes power and data allowing connection to X:LINK compatible devices, saving USB ports on your computer.

Looper

Each channel has a built-in looper, with selectable loop length from 1/16 beat to 4 bars. :DB4 will always record the full 4 bars, so the loop can be expanded or shrunk at will.

 Filters

:DB4 comes equipped with the Xone dual filter system.

Source select

Each music channel can select any of the available stereo music sources: Analogue Line 1-4 (switchable to Phono on 2-3), Digital 1-4 or USB 1-4.

 EQ / Filter

Each music channel has a 3-band EQ that can be configured as standard asymmetric EQ (+6/-26dB), Isolator (+6dB/OFF with a 24dB/octave slope), or reconfigured as a High-Pass/Low-Pass filter system with adjustable resonance. EQ knob pointers change colour to show which type of equalization is active.

 Mic/Line Input

The Mic/Line input has 2-band EQ, gain, cue and mix level. This can also be routed to channel 1 for adding FX.

 Integral Soundcard

A built-in, high quality (24-bit / 96kHz), multi-channel, fully patchable USB2 soundcard allows replay and recording from audio software for 4 stereo sends and 4 stereo returns.

USB

User-defined settings such as meter mode, BPM range, USB audio routing scheme and display brightness can be saved to a USB key for recall on another :DB4.

MIDI control

All controls (except Mic and Phones level) send MIDI data and the mixer can double up as a MIDI controller via the MIDI shift button, allowing the Loop and FX selection controls to send MIDI data without changing the mixer settings.

Output Patchbay

Booth, record and phones - source selectable and level trim. Booth and main - phase and level trim controls.

 High Visibility Display

The OLED display is clearly visible, even in bright sunlight, and displays channel FX selection and current BPM, as well as being an easy interface for the Menu setup functions.

Lightweight chassis

:DB4’s lightweight aluminium chassis is designed to make touring with the console easy.
