Subcity Radio Broadcast To the World with a Sonifex S2 Mixer
2nd July 2008
Glasgow’s local music scene is broadcast across the internet by Subcity Radio, a student radio station operating since the mid 90’s from the University of Glasgow. The station is used by students to promote local music, and the local music scene, with no set playlist and 90% specialist programming.
The station is run by Heather Robertson, Subcity Manager. When Subcity’s old mixer needed replacing, she looked to Sonifex to get a new, fresh look to their studio and ordered a 25 frame S2 digital I/O analogue radio broadcast mixer. The mixer was ordered with 3 mic/line channels, 5 stereo channels with EQ and a 10 channel wide script space so that a standard PC keyboard could be used.
Heather commented: ”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’d need, but which would be simple for them to use on-air”.
The Sonifex S2 has a number of features which make it ideal for use by community, student and small-scale commercial radio stations: a wide range of input and output channels, PFL/cue, fader-start operation of equipment, automatic monitor muting on mic-live, light switching remote outputs, optional EQ on input modules, gram amp input options and 2 main audio buses, allowing you to broadcast on the PGM bus while recording on the AUD bus, with bus output selection on each module.
For internet broadcasting the S2 also has simultaneous analogue and digital outputs so the S/PDIF digital output can be connected directly to the soundcard of a PC for internet streaming.
