    Default Allen & Heath Xone:42 for Traktor Scratch instead of Audio8?

    Hi all

    I just found this fantastic looking mixer from Allen & Heath:


    It has an USB interface and at the Xone homepage this is stated:

    Theres even a USB port which allows easy connection to a computer and integration of digital media, which can be used to play back music files from a laptop and to record mixes, or used with software as a digital DJ effects unit.


    Check it out at: http://www.xone.co.uk/42/

    My question is: Do any of you guys know if this can be used with Traktor Scratch, making the Audio8 DJ unnecessary?

    Cheers!

    I don't think so
    The description says : "USB 1.1 port : One stereo up to PC and one stereo back"

    Audio8 has 4 stereo in & 4 outs...

    And, I don't know, really not sure, but it looks like you can't choose what's going out of the USB...

    You were probably looking for one with midi, the first one from AH with MIDI is the http://www.allen-heath.com/uk/xone92.asp

    Dunno about a sound interface though ...

    A mixer has to be "Traktor Scratch Certified" to replace your audio 8 or 4. This would be the AH Xone 4D, Korg Zero 4/8, Ecler Evo5, and Makie D.4pro. http://www.native-instruments.com/in...chcertified_us

    There is no ''real'' sound interface on both xone 42 and 92. As for myself, i run my audio 8 into the 42 and it works really well. The 42 aint got much effects beside the filters, but combined with TPro effects i don't have big complains.

    This sounds like my future setup. Your happy with the mixer? Not having a lot of effects is not really an issue for me.
    Do you use it as an external mixer with Pro, or do you use Scratch Pro?

    exactly the same for me but with a 92 & I'm more than happy with that

    i use T Pro, not scratch. But if you have the sound interface that matches (audio 8), no prob. with scratch i guess.

    The crossfader is not ment for scratching (if i compare to ecler hak for example)
