The Air 1’s low-profile frame is 2 1/2 inches high and comes with tabletop mount with direct access TRS rear connectors.
Features include bottom-mounted programmable dip switches, professional and consumer input gains, universal power supply, six stereo lines, two stereo program bus outputs, split cue for headphone and monitor, VU meters and two mic channels.
Audioarts also will debut the W-12 console for small- to mid-market broadcasters. Features include three stereo main busses, 10 A/B dual source stereo line inputs (analog or digital), two microphone preamps, uncompressed 24-bit operation (44.1 or 48 kHz), switched VU meters, cue speaker with level control and headphone jack with amp.
Wheatstone is showcasing its Vorsis AP-1000 digital spectral processor, now with the Vorsis Bass Management System algorithm in the FM Limiter/Clipper section and five-band AGC; and Vorsis FM-5 audio processor with five-band multi-band dynamics controller and 10-band final limiter with distortion masked clipper.
Additional highlights include the Glass E software application, which lets the user control any Wheatstone Evolution control surface from a remote location through a LAN or WAN.
