The new Allen & Heath two-channel Xone:23C professional DJ mixer is the natural successor to the Xone:22 mixer and it also adds the internal USB DJ soundcard to easily connect to DJ software. The Xone:23C has excellent build quality, an internal USB DJ soundcard with DVS capabilities, Mixvibes LE software, and an X:Link connector to easily link to other Allen & Heath Xone:K series controllers. Check out the review to see if it lives up to the Xone standards.
Allen & Heath’s newest modular MIDI controller called the Xone:K1 is essentially a Xone:K2 MIDI controller but without the built-in stereo soundcard interface and MIDI layering capabilities. The Xone:K1 is a universal MIDI controller that can be mapped/programmed to work with any DJ software and it has six push-button rotary encoder knobs, 12 knobs, four faders, and 30 three-color backlit performance buttons to take precise control over specific software functions. Check out our full Video review to see the features of this modular MIDI controller.

Numark is on a roll at this year’s BPM show in the UK with the release of a few new products.
