ADD9000 Digital Audio Mixers
Audix Broadcast has developed a range of ATM wide area network systems fitted to both central technical interfaces and studio digital audio mixers. The above ADD912Y high-quality, cost-effective 12-channel mixer is now available and will be shown at IBC Amsterdam in September 2003.
The ADD908x uses WYSIWGY principles whereas the 916x and 924x has true assignability, originally pioneered by Audix Broadcast in the early 1980's.
16 and 24 channel system
The ADD916x is a 16 fader system which may be laid out in a "split format" and can be configured with planed redundancy features. Two entirely independent Audio and Control processing frames are linked together, not onlt to provide redundancy for Audio inputs and outputs, DSP processing, control processing, and DC power supplies, but to expand the desk's audio ports to 80 inputs and 48 outputs together with 32 full duplex ATM gateway audio ports.
The OSEXT option allows operators to select the external source as well as the return audio feed - Cue Programme, Clean Feed (N-1) or OFF - as well as controlling the signals level. Talkback inject is provided with dynamic action (alternate or momentary) with 4 wire linking possible.
The expanded ADD924x assignment panel gives access to Input gain, Input conditioning, channel dynamics, group limiters (useful in maintaining stereo imaging positional accuracy in group discussions), 2 voice grouping (control or undercontrol) equalisation, Auxiliaries, inserts, group and main outputs. Clean Feeds/N-1 feeds are automaticaly derived on the channel being assigned to an external source.
Audix Broadcast have developed a system where the fader knobs change colour and intensity dynamically. Base colours available are RED, GREEN, YELLOW, BLUE and WHITE. The colour intensity of the knobs, like the rest of the control surface, is varied by a single rotary control allowing adjustment of the desk illumination to the ambient lighting.
