Xone:K2 is a compact designed MIDI Controller for use with any DJ software such as Ableton, Virtual DJ, MixVibes, Mixx and Traktor Pro. Xone:K2 can even be used to control lights or VJ software – if it can receive MIDI data it can take commands from K2. What each control does is entirely up to you – you can create a completely customised layout that perfectly fits the way you want to work. Xone:K2 has 52 physical controls – including 12 analogue and 6 endless rotary encoders with push switch, 4 linear faders, and 30 backlit performance switches – providing up to 171 MIDI control commands across 3 layers. We also provide example maps to get you started out the box and information on how to set up your own.
A Latching Layers system lets you assign controls to multiple layers, so a single physical control can be given up to 3 functions. You can configure all, some or none of K2’s controls to be linked to the Latching Layers system. As a quick visual reminder, when toggling through layers all switches assigned to a particular layer will illuminate in the appropriate colour.
Xone:K2 has a high quality internal, four channel (2 stereo) 48kHz soundcard. Setup options include using the K2 with a pair of headphones, feeding a pair of headphones and a PA system, or connecting to an external DJ mixer.
Its slim line chassis, soft touch controls and minimal looks set K2 apart from the pack. There’s plenty of substance too – Xone:K2 is built to Allen & Heath’s renowned touring grade audio and build quality standards, including the use of steel nuts on all rotary controls to protect the circuitry from impact damage.
Xone:K2 comes packed in a black padded case as standard. As well as keeping it safe on the road, the case doubles as a stand, elevating the K2 up to the same height as most pro DJ mixers.
