A DJ Controller with a Ton of Flexibility!

The small-format Allen & Heath Xone:K2 DJ MIDI controller puts a ton of knobs, buttons, and sliders at your fingertips, plus a handy 4-channel audio interface. An included case doubles as a stand, elevating the Xone:K2 to the height of a standard DJ mixer. It also includes Allen & Heath's X:LINK protocol, which allows you to daisy chain the Xone:K2's MIDI and power with other X:LINK-equipped gear via a single Cat 5e ethernet cable. If you want massive functionality out of a portable DJ MIDI controller, then the Allen & Heath Xone:K2 is an excellent choice for you.

Loaded with MIDI controls and ready to connect with the gear you already have

The Allen & Heath Xone:K2 may have a small footprint, but that's the only scaled-down thing about this fully loaded MIDI controller. Just on the surface, the Xone:K2 gives you a total of 12 analog pots, 6 encoders with push switches, four linear faders with firmware-based soft takeover functions, and 30 backlit soft buttons. All of these controls feel absolutely wonderful too. The Xone:K2 controller also comes with a complete set of preset layouts, so you can plug it in and start using it with your favorite DJ software, right out of the box.

Totally customizable layout is a serious controllerist's playground

Presets are great if you're just getting started, but if you've been using controllers in your rig for a while, you might be wondering how the Xone:K2 will fit into your setup. Don't worry, this Allen & Heath built the Xone:K2 to be about as flexible as a controller can get. Not only can you map out all of the Xone:K2's controls, making it instantly compatible with any software that uses MIDI, you get three latching layers. That means the Xone:K2 effectively puts a total of 171 MIDI controls at your fingertips. What's more, each soft button has red, amber, and green LEDs under it, so you never have to guess what layer you're on.

Built-in USB 4-channel audio interfaces lets you travel light

If you're putting together a lightweight, small footprint DJ rig, then you're really going to appreciate the Allen & Heath Xone:K2 controller's built-in USB audio interface. In addition to a 1/8" headphone output on the front of the Xone:K2, there's also a pair of RCA jacks on the back that are fed by a second set of channels. In other words, the Xone:K2 comes equipped with all of the outputs you need for both a headphone cue and a set of mains.

Not fully thought through

The layering system works okay but a shift type button would have also been nice. The knobs, faders, and buttons are Allen and Heath quality and feel great. Complete RGB led backlit buttons would have been nice, the K2 only has 3 possible colors that are not changeable with midi talkback. I am using it as a midi mixer and for that it works great, could be spaced out more, but it is not promoted as a mixer so that is understandable.
