D&R Airmate-USB - 8 Ch Broadcast Radio On-air Console

The Airmate-8 has the usual stereo 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; Self­op 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.
