Allen & Heath have introduced the Xone:K2, a MIDI controller and audio interface with a 4-channel internal soundcard, configurable MIDI surface with tri-colour LED illumination, USB bus-power and incorporating Allen & Heath's proprietary X:Link to connect with other Xone equipment.
The K2 is designed to work with all MIDI-enabled DAW applications and interface with popular DJ software packages, such as Ableton, Traktor Pro and Serato Scratch Live. It has 52 physical controls, including 12 analogue and 6 endless rotary encoders with push switch, 4 linear faders, and 30 back lit performances switches, providing up to 171 MIDI control commands across 3 layers. The K2's MIDI interface can be configured by the user, so the unit can be left in Open Architecture (Latching Layers off) Mode or set to Latching Layers Mode.
The K2 has an internal 4-channel high quality soundcard, that can operate at 44.1 / 48 kHz, and all channels run from the PC to the unit, configured to provide 2 stereo channels, one for headphones one for master out L and R, allowing headphone cueing without interrupting the master out. There is also a dedicated 3.5mm headphone jack and a master out on RCA phono connectors.
It is possible to link 2 K2 units together to double the control area using Allen & Heath's proprietary X:Link protocol. The X:Link uses a standard RJ45 connector and distributes power and data, which means 2 units can be connected to your DAW using only one USB port.
The Xone:K2 is constructed with a strong plastic base and steel front panel employing A&H's nutted pot construction to be both lightweight and hard-wearing. Finally, the K2 comes with a carry case that doubles as a stand for ease of use for travelling DJs.
