If you’re DJing, pray that you’ll wind up gigging at Ministry of Sound London. The place is loaded with Allen & Heath’s Xone DJ gear line. Aside from the rotary Xone:V6 mixer, laptop DJs can opt for the MIDI-enabled Xone:92.

Evidence that some DJs need to brush up on their Audio Processing 101: MoS head of production David Bradshaw notes “the best feature on the V6 must be the high-pass filter on each channel. It takes a little while for DJ’s to understand what this does but once they do everyone agrees that this is far better than a simple ‘bass’ control, and much smoother.”
