This new Airmate-USB 8 channel model has 6 balanced mic inputs (+48 phantom is standard) with inserts for signal proc-essors, 12 stereo line inputs, 2x USB and 2x Telephone Hybrids.
Channel 5 and 6 have Mic/Line and USB interface to transfer audio from and to your PC.
Channel 7 and 8 have, apart from the stereo line input, also RJ-11 connectors to interface with a POT line and a telephone appliance.
High quality built in Hybrids with R and C balance and direct Talk back in the Hybrid channels makes a conversation with listeners very easy. The front panel ON switch is wired in series with the built in mechanical faderstart enabling selection of start either by fader or hard start via the ON switch. Faderstart generates in the Mic mode a Mic-on signalling to switch on ON-Air lights. There is a 3 band Equalizer on channel 1-6. The stereo Aux send can be set pre or post fader. All mic inputs have low cut jumpers. A clean feed send is available for external Hybrids.
The Airmate-USB has the usual master controls such as stereo master faders, stereo Aux send and return, monitor master with “follow phones” and a phones output with a split control function. There is a balance control to continuously adjust the volume between main output and stereo Cue signal. In addition, there is a special Radio On-air/production section featuring; Self-op switching to automatically cut control room level when the D.J. mic is active; a Clean feed output to also drive an external Telephone Hybrid for talk shows and interviews, if you need more Hybrid channels than the 2 built in ones; a special announcer output that normally follows main output but can be switched so that the main output, or any cue signal that is selected, can be heard when in the “follow phones” mode.
A large Talkback switch activates the built-in electret talkback microphone for easy communication with the Clean-feed output, Aux output and/or Announcer output.
