Input Matrix Signal Routing
4 Stereo Inputs & Outputs Via USB
Three Mode (Trimodal) EQ Section
Flexible MIDI Control
Bright OLED Display

Twin DSP FX Engines
Massive FX Library
Xone:DB2 has more than 50 FX presets divided into 5 FX types: Delays/loopers, Reverbs, Resonance, Modulation and Damage. These are studio grade FX
Expression + Wet / Dry
The Expression and Wet / Dry controls give intuitive, hands-on control for everything from subtle FX washes to total transformation.
Editable FX Parameters
For those who want to drill down further, individual FX variations can be further modified via the rotary controls under the screen.
Each of DB2’s four input channels has a full input matrix that can select from four analogue (Line or RIAA), four USB, or two digital sources, allowing for a wide variety of audio sources to be connected simultaneously. The same source can also be selected on multiple channels.
Xone:DB2 adopts the fresh approach to creative equalization introduced on DB4. The EQs can be used in three different modes – standard asymmetric EQ (+6/-26dB), total Kill (+6dB/OFF with a 24dB/octave slope), or High-Pass/Low-Pass filter with adjustable resonance.
Mic / Line Input
With 2 band EQ, gain, cue and mix level and with full access to FX.
High Visibility OLED Display
Tested for maximum clarity whether playing on a sundrenched Balearic beach or in a Berlin basement, the high contrast display shows FX selection, BPM and menu setup functions.
Made for life on the road, Xone:DB2 is robust enough for touring, and its lightweight aluminum chassis helps ease the arm-ache.
The built-in, multi-channel USB2 soundcard allows replay and recording from computer-based audio software for 4 stereo sends and 4 stereo returns.
All controls (except Mic and Phone levels) send MIDI data. The mixer can double up as a MIDI controller for DJ software such as Traktor Pro and Ableton via the MIDI shift button, which allows the FX selection controls to send MIDI data without changing the mixer settings.
Xone:DB2 can integrate smoothly with the new Xone:K2 software controller via Allen & Heath’s proprietary X:LINK protocol.
