Allen & Heath Xone:23C DJ Mixer

Allen & Heath introduces the Xone:23C, a 2 channel DJ Mixer that comes with a 4 stereo channel internal soundcard.


This new DJ mixer is the sister product of the recently released Xone:23, carrying the same feature set with some interesting additions.

The most notable addition is the 96kHz 24bit 4 stereo channel USB soundcard, this enables replay and recording from any chosen DJ software. This built-in soundcard will let you control your preferred digital DJ software with the Xone:23C hardware mixer. Connectivity is further expanded by the addition of an X:LINK port, where you can connect the DJ Mixer to other compatible Xone products.

To better utilize the new soundcard right out of the box, Allen & Heath bundled this DJ Mixer with Mixvibes Cross LE software. The software also enables 2-deck DVS control, and it supports plug and play connection of a Xone:K series controller, with parameters conveniently premapped.

Like the previously released model, Xone:23C has 2 stereo channels with independent level controls for each of the 4 inputs, this allows up to four stereo sources to be simultaneously routed to the mix. Dedicated send and return system for external effects is also provided. At the core of this mixer is the Analogue Voltage Control Filter (VCF) system, which is used for the unit's Low-Pass and High-Pass filters, frequency sweep and 'mild to wild' resonance control.

Connectivity options include balanced XLR mix output, mic input, and a dedicated record output. It also comes equipped with comprehensive monitoring facilities, including a booth output with its own volume control, a cue mix control, and signal levels clearly displayed on the 9 segment peak hold meters.

Following the style of the flagship Xone:DB4, Allen & Heath equipped the Xone:23C with soft touch, back-lit controls, light-piped meters and a distinctive new shaped steel faceplate.


Xone product specialist Greg Ibbotson says: "The Xone:23C offers the ability to interface with digital Djing whilst utilizing conventional mixing in a compact, accessible format. With the option to add our Xone controllers to the mixer setup via X:LINK, you not only save USB ports on your computer but have extended software control at your fingertips for expanding your DJ setup. Also, the Mixvibes Cross LE software brings access to DVS control in conjunction with the Xone:23C."

Xone:23C will start shipping in June of this year, with a price tag of around $700. You can visit Allen & Heath for more information.
