Mic, Line, USB and Internal VoIP

The AIRLITE mixer has 3 balanced, phantom powered mic inputs with inserts for voice processors. Eight stereo line inputs, 4x USB channels  and 1x Telephone VOIP channel. 

If you want to connect to an analog phone line a Cleanfeed output is available for connection to an external Hybrid. 

Only one physical USB connection is the interface for transferring  4 stereo audio channels from and to your PC, plus control data from the control section and for the meter application.

The VOIP Channel 8 has its own USB connector to be able to have your calls coming from another PC. Connection to a second USB connector on your main PC is of course also possible. Dedicated Talk back to the VOIP channel makes conversation with callers very easy. 

The Cue bus is also a communication buss, so the announcer can easily have a discussion with the caller while ON-AIR.

Just hit the two related CUE buttons and you’re talking.

And... when a call comes in your attention is instantly drawn by a clear signal to be seen on the Meter screen.

There is a very musical 3 band Equalizer on channel 1-3. 

The stereo Aux send can be selected  pre or post fader. 

And all high quality low noise mic inputs have a high quality built in low cut filter.


Smart Module Programming

The AIRLITE modules can be easily tailored to your own needs as you can see on the software program pages shown below or in the manual.

All 8 modules have their own page  where you can program Cue reset enabled by line, Mic, Fader, On etc.

You can even decide if you want 10dB fader gain or not. 
Both ON-AIR busses 1 and 2 can be enabled by Line or Mic.

You can even  program your own switch colors, activate the CRM mutes per module and program the  Studio Remote and if you want your Phantom on or off individually, this is programmable per channel.

GPIO functions have the following states;

  • Continuously
  • Pulse by ON
  • Pulse by OFF
  • Pulse by ON/OFF

And... all settings can be stored (write) and loaded (read), see the software pages below that indicates all its possibilities.

The manual gives of course more detailed info on this subject.


Straight forward Master Section

The master section is designed for Radio. It houses all the master controls such as the stereo Aux send and return, Control Room Monitor (CRM), Announcer and a  high level, low impedance, phones output. 

Auto Cue provides both the Announcer and CRM outputs to follow the CUE selections. CUE reset cancels all activated Cue selections.

Of course the Control Room Monitors are muted automatically to cut control room level when the D.J. Mic is active.

A Studio output (announcer) that normally follows the main output can be routed by activating Auto Cue  in a way any Cue signal that is selected can be heard.

Three Talk-back switches individually activate the built-in talkback microphone which has its own gain control for communication to VOIP, Announcer and Aux outputs.

Talkback can also take place to all outputs at the same time.

The NON STOP button at the top of the design routes USB channel 4 to the program output when activated.
