Maidstone, UK (April 30, 2010)--Nic Fanciulli, a British house DJ and producer, records his weekly radio show on an Allen & Heath XB-14 broadcast mixer.
"From first glance, it creates a really good impression," explains Fanciulli. "It is a very user-friendly model with all the parameters clearly visible. The combination of analogue, digital--including USB--and Telco channels make this mixer perfect for radio broadcast, and I use it from the very beginning when compiling my show, right through to the production and recording processes."
Fanciulli's label, Saved Records, has released acts such as Santos, Mark Broom, Spencer Parker and Rolando, while as a DJ, Fanciulli has mixed compilations for Renaissance and Global Underground, while managing to find the time to have releases on Sci Tec, Ovum and other notable labels.
His new radio show, Nic Fanciulli Presents Worldwide Sounds, is the DJ's latest venture, and is syndicated to 20 countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Australia, France, Lebanon, Romania and Ibiza in Spain.
"Whenever I have used Allen & Heath mixers in the past, the sound has always been second-to-none, and the XB-14 lives up to that great reputation. Audio is transparent at all levels, and doesn't feel colored, which is vital in a broadcast mixer, as the last thing you want is the sound to be tainted. Also, whenever I record my vocals, I usually have to remove the unwanted low-end frequencies but the XB-14 has a 100 Hz roll-off function, which is great for eliminating this at just the touch of a button."
