Twin DSP FX Engines
Massive FX Library
Boasting a massive FX library of more than 50 FX presets divided into 5 FX types: Delays/loopers, Reverbs, Resonators, Modulators and Damage, Xone:DB2
allows you to dig deep and get hands-on with your music. From subtle FX washes to total transformation of your sound - you’re in control.
The two FX engines can be cascaded, or chained, to run the output of FX-X to the input of the FX-Y, allowing the audio to be processed by any combination
of two different effects. Additionally any channel routed to FX-X can be processed by both engines, but the single effect on the FX-Y engine can still be
accessed by routing the channel to Y.
Editable FX Parameters
Each FX engine has a dedicated expression control and a rotary pot to set the wet/dry level, whilst further tweaking can be performed using the global
controllers 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 equalisation 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.
With 2 band EQ, gain, cue and mix level and with full access to FX.
High Visibility OLED Display
The OLED display is clearly visible, even in bright sunlight, and displays channel FX selection and current BPM, as well as being an easy interface for the
Menu setup functions.
DB2’s lightweight aluminium chassis is designed to make touring with the console easy.
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 Phones level) send MIDI data. The mixer can double up as a MIDI controller for DJ software via the MIDI shift button, which
allows the FX selection controls to send MIDI data without changing the mixer settings. DB2 can generate internal MIDI clock which can be used to control
the tempo of a connected DAW via USB and the ability to change the mixers MIDI channel.
X:LINK uses a standard RJ45 connector and distributes power and data, allowing connection to X:LINK compatible devices, saving USB ports on your computer.
Useful output processing tool for dealing with poor room acoustics, less than ideal speaker placement, as a diagnostic tool for phase imbalance, or as an
effect to change the bass sound focus
