The XTC is a unique mixer developed in close consultation with a number of top DJs. The experience they built up in the dance scene led to the implementation of several important requirements, which formed the basis for the development of this mixer.
Successor : Dateq XTC II
The XTC has proved to be a real winner in practice. Extremely compact, purely functional and as sturdy as a mule, this mixer is guaranteed to serve you well through years of intensive use.
XTC from Holland, boundlessly popular in the USA, the absolute standard for demanding DJs.
4 channels 7 inputs
The XTC is Technics turntable-sized and has 4 channels, including 1 microphone channel which can be mixed with the unit’s own equalizer and gain signals. The other 3 channels are fader channels (100 mm ALPS) and have 2 inputs each, so that 3 line signals (e.g. CD, MD, sampler or keyboard) can be connected in addition to 3 turntables. A push-button next to each channel’s gain control can be used to switch from input 1 (phono) to input 2 (line), so that the time-consuming unplugging and plugging in of equipment is a thing of the past.
3 band equalizer
DATEQ is famous all over the world because of it's sound quality. This is achieved by using only high-quality components.
- Top : 12 kHz ±15 dB, Shelving
- Mid : 1.4 kHz ±12 dB, Bell
- Bass : 50 Hz ±15 dB, Shelving
To boost the speed and ease of operation during mixing, the XTC is fitted with 'terminator' switches which can be used to remove the bass, mid or top from the crossfader in a fraction of a second. The terminators kill with -18dB.
The X fader is connected between the XTC’s outermost fader channels and, like the channel faders, is VCA-driven to prevent malfunction and guarantee years of problem free operation.
The 'transform' buttons are used to add music fragments from one side of the X fader on to those on the other side.
Cue facilities are of course provided on each channel. The cue signals are fed to a headphone amplifier with 'power split'. This unique Dateq function enables the cue and master signals to be heard simultaneously over the headphones.
There is no shortage of outputs on the XTC. The master output is balanced and provided with XLR plugs, allowing it to be directly coupled to an amplifier. In addition to this balanced output, an unbalanced cinch connection is also provided.
Furthermore, the XTC has a Monitor out, a sub low out for driving an (active) subwoofer and a secondairy headphones connector on the backside, to few people know this and/or use it.
