Latching Layers

A Latching Layers system allows you to assign controls to multiple layers so 1 physical control can be given up to 3 functions. You can configure all, some or none of Xone:K2’s controls to be linked to the Latching Layers system. 

Audio Interface

XONE:K2 has a high quality internal, 4 channel (2 stereo) 48kHz soundcard. Setup option abilities include using the K2 with headphones, feeding a pair of headphones and a PA system, or connecting to an external DJ mixer.


With soft touch controls and minimal looks, the K2 is set apart from other devices of its kind. Additionally, the Xone:K2 is built to Allen & Heath’s well-known touring grade audio and build quality standards. This includes the use of steel nuts on all rotary controls to guard the circuitry from impact damage.

Case / Stand

2 or more K2s can be linked via the X:LINK protocol, broadening the device's control capability. X:LINK uses a standard RJ45 connector and distributes power and data, allowing connection to X:LINK compatible devices. These include XONE:DB4 and DB2 to expand MIDI data without using additional USB ports.
