Convincing sound, full flexibility

HP., 18.07.2011
Both as an external mixer and using the built-in audio interface, the sound (for my ears) is really convincing, as expected by Allen & Heath.

A convincing feature is the input matrix. All incoming audio signals can be applied to the individual channel faders by means of a switch. Diesel Flexibility consists in selecting the signals for the different outputs. However, the outputs are configured via menu, whereas the inputs with the switches are more comfortable.

The filters and the EQ with three modes are great and offer so great flexibility in the setting that one misses only briefly 4-band EQ with which Allen & Heath has scored in the past. The effects and looping are really fun, but I find it a pity that each channel is limited to an active effect.

According to the press release of Native Instruments, TSP certification will not be given because the projected sales figures for the mixer are too low. No problem for me.

I had a while opportunity to test a Pioneer DJM900, which is probably the direct competitor product and targets the same buyer strata. Also a fine device, but my remission for the DB4 I have not regret.

Useless to say that I find the Preispolitik both in the house Allen & Heath as well as in the house Pioneer. High quality are probably both mentioned products, but in my opinion also both overpriced.

Supplement 2015: after almost four years I can say: the sound is still outstanding. But: the driver situation is miserable. Allen & Heath simply does not want to provide current and working drivers. The corresponding thread in the A & H forum reads as a joke, if I would not possess one of these devices. Conclusion after four years: if I would rely on the built-in USB interface, then I would not buy the device again, despite all other advantages,

THE digital mixer for electronic music!

mahumba, 22.08.2011
I have a long and much researched as well as considered, which digital mixer it should be. Infinitely many videos and reviews were reviewed and the election finally fell to the DB4. I also have to confess that I have a swarm for A & H. We leave the eternal dispute between Pioneer and A & H now.

The good piece should be used for the mixing of electronic music, for which 2 other midi controllers should serve as a player.

The first impression makes the price quickly forgotten, the processing of the faders, poti and the general haptics are breathtaking. At first you dare to touch him;)

The first setup is done quickly, the current drivers pull themselves from the A & H website and then it's already started. The menu is very extensive, but also absolutely self-explanatory. The equipment for Traktor ran also easy and after a few minutes there was the full A & H sound on the ears. "Despite" the digital heart, the sound is pure madness. Simply brilliant, both via Master (XLR), as well as via Monitor / Booth (Cinch) or the headphone connections.

There are tons of features and features, my personal favorite is the loop section. But also the FX unit makes its name all honor and the multitude of options for influencing the effects remains really no wish open. Everything in the usual A & H quality.

Bottom line, I can only recommend this mixer. One should, however, before carefully consider what one needs and how to build his set. As a fixed mixer in a club, he will probably be out of the question with "only" 2 phono inputs, but he is certainly a very good choice for DJs who are often on the road and would like to take their own clean tuned set practical transport bag is already already with;)
