 This mapping can used with one or multiple Xone K2s/K1s. Multiple Xone K2s/K1s can be connected to each other via X-Link with one of them connected to the computer via USB. Alternatively,​ when using 2 K2s/K1s, they can both be connected with their own USB cable and this same mapping can be loaded for each. This mapping can used with one or multiple Xone K2s/K1s.

 The bottom buttons assign the effect unit to different input channels and light up red. On the two deck layouts, from top to bottom, they assign the effect unit to deck 1, deck 2, master mix, and headphones. On the four effect unit layouts, they assign the effect unit to decks 1-4 going down the column. You can look down a column to see which decks an effect unit is assigned. You can look across a row to see which effect units are assigned to a deck. When shift is pressed, the bottom two buttons switch to controlling the routing buttons for the master and headphones channels and light up amber. The bottom buttons assign the effect unit to different input channels and light up red.

 ===== Troubleshooting ==== ===== Troubleshooting ====
-If your K2 switches between 3 layers (amber, red, and green) instead of 2 (amber and red only) and supershift does not work, make sure Latching Layers is turned off. Refer to the [[http://www.allen-heath.com/​media/​Xone+K2_UG_AP8509_2.pdf|Xone K2 product ​manual ​from Allen & Heath]] for details.+If your K2 switches between 3 layers (amber, red, and green) instead of 2 (amber and red only) and supershift does not work, make sure Latching Layers is turned off.

 ====== Known issues ====== ====== Known issues ======
 There are a few known issues with the Xone K2/K1 firmware. First, there is no way for Mixxx to ask the controller about the positions of all the knobs and faders when Mixxx starts, so they are out of sync with the state of Mixxx until they are first moved. Also, when the USB connection is interrupted and the controller stays powered on, such as leaving the controller plugged into a powered USB hub and disconnecting the hub from the computer, the controller will not send MIDI input until it is powered down (unplugged) and plugged back in. If you would like these issues to be fixed, please let [[https://​www.allen-heath.com/​support/​|Allen & Heath Support]] know. There are a few known issues with the Xone K2/K1 firmware.
