Exclusive Modified XONE:4D For Paul Van Dyk
Allen & Heath have created a one-off special edition of their popular Xone:4D mixer controller for renowned DJ endorser, Paul van Dyk. Used for the first time at last year’s Amsterdam Dance Event, Paul’s modified version includes VCA rotary faders rather than the standard linear faders. There is also custom-designed silk screening for the faceplate with Paul’s name in UV paint.
“The 4D is the centrepiece of my set up and is based on the way I DJ. I have two computers on stage that are synced to each other: one has the synths, keyboards and controllers hooked up to it and the other is full of the audio material. The Xone:4D gives me control of everything I am using,” explains van Dyk. “I wanted rotary knobs instead of faders to give me finer control of the volume, and the feel is more precise. One of the great things about the 4D is the great sound and the fact that everything on the mixer can be fully programmed.”
