Xone-K1-White-TopIntroduction

Xone:K1 is a compact, slim line DJ MIDI controller that lets you define and customise your workflow and mixing experience with your chosen DJ or production software. The :K1 can be easily set up for fast access to level controls, triggering hot cues, adding FX and instant looping,  freeing you to concentrate on the music, not on the laptop screen.

 

The Xone:K1 offers a total of 52 assignable controls for mapping to Traktor Pro, Ableton, Virtual DJ, MixVibes and more. Controls include 6 endless rotary encoders with push switch, 12 analogue pots, 4 linear faders, and 30 backlit performance switches with three-colour illumination.

 

Xone:K1 is powered over USB, so there’s no need for a separate power cable, and it can be daisy-chained with other :K1s and Xone:K2s over X:LINK, cutting out the need for a separate USB hub.The Allen & Heath X:LINK protocol also lets you expand your setup by connecting directly to Xone:23C, :DB2 and :DB4 mixers.

Features:

MIDI Control

Xone:K1 is a universal controller and can be used with any  DJ software , including Traktor Pro, Ableton, Virtual DJ, MixVibes and Mixx. Xone:K1 can even be used to control lights or VJ software – if it can receive MIDI data it can take commands from K1. 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. We also provide example maps to get you started, plus step-by-step information on how to set up your own.

X:LINK

Two or more Xone:K1 and / or Xone:K2 controllers 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 ports.

Build Quality

Xone:K1 is both lightweight and hard-wearing, with a steel front panel and employing Allen & Heath’s nutted pot construction.

Optional Case/Stand

A black padded case for Xone:K1 is available separately. As well as keeping it safe on the road, the case doubles as a stand, elevating the K1 up to the same height as most pro DJ mixers.
