Sonifex Show New S1 Mixer At Broadcast India 2009
13th October 2009
The S1 Radio Broadcast Mixer is a new innovation from Sonifex being demonstrated on stand H801 at Broadcast India 2009. It is a high performance, compact, low cost, fixed format mixing console with a large feature-set and it is designed for on-air radio use.
Marcus Brooke, Managing Director, is attending the Broadcast India show: “What people really like about our S2 mixer is it’s ‘no compromise on quality’ approach with excellent mic amps, comprehensive facilities and simple, reliable operation. We’ve used the same high quality components and design philosophies in the S1. It offers a professional broadcast solution to community, educational and student radio stations in need of a versatile, reliable radio broadcast mixer.“
The S1 can be fitted flush into a desk-top or can be rack-mounted by the addition of rack ears. It provides in total 5 mic, 4 mono line, 10 stereo analogue, 2 stereo digital, 1 telco & 1 stereo cleanfeed inputs to switch between using 10 fader channels. One of these is a 3.5mm insert jack socket for an iPod/mp3 player auxiliary connection.
It has one stereo programme output available as both balanced analogue and S/PDIF or TOSlink digital, so that a main programme feed can be sent to a transmitter whilst a digital feed can go directly to a PC for internet streaming. Two stereo Aux outputs are also available and these can be configured as either pre or post the fader outputs.
There are also a mono cleanfeed output, a stereo cleanfeed output and monitor outputs for presenter headphones, guest headphones and loudspeakers. With true mono and stereo cleanfeed busses (instead of mix-minuses) the mixer allows high performance connection to a telephone hybrid and ISDN codec.
Built-in LED meters can be set to show either PPM or VU ballistics and the meters can monitor the programme output, or the monitor selection consisting of the programme, auxiliary outputs or one of two external stereo inputs. There is also an output port for use with external meters. The full range of usual radio broadcast facilities are available such as fader operation via VCA, fader start of ancilliary equipment such as CD players, monitor muting on mic live and mic-live/on-air sign switching to name a few. The mixer is highly configurable and can be set-up using the serial port and the free of charge Sonifex SCi software. more >
