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 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
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
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.
Case / Stand
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.
Two or more K2s can be linked via our X:LINK protocol,
expanding the control capability. X:LINK uses a standard RJ45 connector and
distributes power and data, allowing connection to X:LINK compatible devices,
including Xone:DB4 and DB2, to expand MIDI data without using additional USB
