Four-channel field mixer
FM-4: The FM-4 includes balanced four-channel inputs (mic/line), two main outputs, and two sub outputs. Outputs feature high-quality custom transformers and can double as 1-4-channel direct out (post-fader). A highly visible organic EL display with high resolution metering offers both VU and peak level in addition to mixer parameter status and remaining battery capacity. Main output signals are tamable with on-board analog limiters that include threshold and ratio controls. Additional outputs include tape output and 2× aux outputs with channel select. Monitor return inputs are available for checking the audio from VTR or camera feeds. Headphone outs are on standard and mini plugs (in parallel) and are selectable from multiple sources and PFL.
Amarra MINI 1.0: A smaller, simpler version of the Amarra ultrafidelity music player, Amarra MINI sharesg the same Sonic Studio Engine (SSE) playback as the full version. It provides bit-perfect output of standard and hi-res audio files to an audio interface and DAC, supporting sample rates up to 96kHz. Amarra MINI features automatic hardware sample rate management, advanced dither and digital volume, and uses Itunes for compressed and rights managed music.
Software for radio
Digital Juke Box
Public Inspection File: This file inspection software makes a nerve-racking experience a simple task. All documents are stored electronically, allowing the user to make a public inspection file (PIF) available on a website, maintain PIF files from one central location, turn an FCC inspection into a stress-free situation and save physical space. If it's on a computer, nobody can steal the original documents. They are always backed up, complete and in compliance. A 15-day fully functional demo is available on the company's website.
Isolated USB interface
USB I/O: The ARX USB I/O is a plug-and-play USB digital/analog pro audio interface that removes the need to use any existing sound card outputs. It features full transformer balanced inputs and outputs, providing the isolation required to eliminate earth loops/ground hum and other extraneous interaction noise and distortion. The USB I/O installs as a fully compatible generic USB audio device, requiring no special driver program installation. The front panel has left and right transformer balanced analog XLR input and output connectors that connect to any standard balanced analog inputs and outputs. On the rear panel there is a Type B USB connector, as well as a ground lift switch. A status LED on the rear panel indicates the USB I/O is connected and operating.
