It has a been very slow the last few weeks on the news front, so it’s good to see Allen & Heath teasing a whole new mixer on their Facebook page!
The teaser is in the worst possible quality, but it’s still possible to detect the mixer has 4 channels and a crossfader. The release date is also teased in the video, set for the 9th of June.
The Xone:96 was first teased in the newest Traktor Pro release that came out a few weeks ago so we knew it was coming. From the looks and the apparent feature set, the Xone:96 is set to replace the classic and slightly legendary Xone:92 mixer. Those are big shoes to fill, as the Xone:92 is beloved by DJ’s all over the world, and that for over 15 years.
The mixer has been teased as well on Sian’s Instagram:
From this picture, we can see the mixer has, amongst others that still remain a mystery, the following features:
- Four channels and a crossfader
- Dual filters like on the classic Allen & Heath Xone:92
- A 4 band EQ per channel
- Dual send & return channels
We don’t have any information on prices and other features yet, but the knowledge that it will be Traktor Pro certified from launch is nothing but good news.
Check back soon for more information, and if anything else is released related to the Xone:96, I will add it to this post.
