Allen & Heath Press Release:
The mixer section is derived from the industry-standard Xone:92 and Xone:62 designs, featuring 4 multi-input stereo channels, 3-band total kill EQ, a comprehensive cue system, 2 stereo returns, headphone monitor with mix/cue control, and high quality dual rail faders.
3D contains the Xone range?s trademark VCF filters, offering low-pass, band-pass, and high-pass selection; resonance and frequency filters; plus there is an assignable LFO with depth control. The master section has 2 FX sends with pre/post fader selection, and there is a VCA crossfader. The USB soundcard has eight channels, arranged in stereo pairs, which can operate in two modes - 6 channels from a PC and 2 returns, or 4 channels from a PC and 4 returns. Using individual professional audio standard 24bit stereo converters with an audio sampling rate of 48kHz, the card?s design guarantees the best possible sound quality from laptops and PCs. The soundcard can be fed from the main mix, FX1, or direct from the channels, and features a SPDIF optical and coaxial interface.
Also, the USB connection sends and receives both audio and MIDI data to and from the PC, and can be used to update firmware and set mixer configuration data. There are dedicated MIDI control sections either side of the mixer, with a total of 8 dedicated control faders, 16 rotary controls with centre detent, 10 encoders, 50 switches, and 2 custom jog wheels with micro switches, which can be mapped for use as navigation controls for DJ software such as Ableton Live and Traktor.
Xone:3D can send a total of 105 different MIDI control messages from the dedicated control sections, audio channel faders and crossfader, to the 3D?s MIDI out socket and via the USB interface to the PC. An automatic beat detector synchronises the MIDI clock to the main mix, the FX2 mix buss, or can be disabled to allow the beat to be manually tapped-in. The 3D also has connections for a footswitch controller and a gameport socket for a standard analogue joystick that can also be used as a second MIDI output.
The progressive DJ?s, Chris Liebing and Richie Hawtin, have been consultants and beta testers during development of the Xone:3D. ?Technology is leading us into a very exciting and new form of DJ?ing,? comments Chris Liebing. ?Allen & Heath?s Xone:3D is a huge step forward into that future. More fun for the DJ, more fun for the crowd!?
Feature List :
On the backside of the Xone:3D you'll find a compilation of different type of connectors. As usual there are the cinch terminals for the regular audio signals but there are also lots of others.
Hier zit ik dus op te wachten. Ben erg benieuwd hoe Traktor en Live hiermee werken. Wie heeft dan nog een Numark met HD of CD-Player met mp3 nodig ? Nu nog nieuwe snelle PowerBooks van Apple en ik ben gelukkig (en failliet).
Vraag me ook, hoe Pioneer, Denon etc. op de laptop-DJ ontwikkeling gaan reageren.
''On the Techy front the word on the grapevine is that by next year DJ’s will only be carrying around laptops and ipods as Pioneer bring out a new DJ tool to which you can slot in a couple of ipods and have access to over 15,000 tunes during your set. Way to go I reckon but sadly seeing the demise of record bag carriers across the globe.''
De Pioneer - iPod/Laptop DJ consolle/controller lijkt er dus serieus aan te gaan komen.
Ik zou het iig een dream to come true vinden, geen cd's meer branden maar wel de voordelen van CDJ's, lijkt mij een super app.
is deze voor de pc?

hmm,., the only thing what I don't understand is why is it called 3D Mixer?, do you also can control movies with it?
hi there, i was down at West End DJ two days ago and they rang up the A&H Sales Rep and i could talk to him. He didn't tell me nothing really big but he said that the Xone would be around 1.300 and 1.400 Pounds and that some selected stores would have a unit already by the End of November. It's a small update but its a sign that things are going well. The guy also said that the earlier than planned shipping dates are made possible thanks to the faster resolution of bugs than assumed. Lets hope it get here soon JDPBron: http://www.ableton.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=29034
