The student-run University of Glasgow stations focus on the Glaswegian music scene, airing mostly specialist programs and following no set playlist.
To replace an old mixer, Subcity Manager Heather Robertson ordered a 25-frame S2. She specified three mic/line channels, five stereo channels with equalization and a 10-channel-wide script space enough to house a standard 105-key PC keyboard.
“The reason that we chose the S2 was mainly for its ease of use — the DJs are a mixture of experienced users and novices alike, so it was important to offer them a console, which had all the features that they would need, but which would be simple for them to use on air,” Robertson said.
For Internet broadcasting, the S2 has simultaneous analog and digital outputs so that users can connect the SPDIF digital output directly to the soundcard of a PC for streaming.
