The ARC-15 radio console is a powerful, general purpose console that meet the needs for most On Air Radio & Radio Production studio applications. Channels One - Five can be internally selected as either mic or stereo line channels. This is ideal for talk studio applications. Channel fifteen is an advanced telephone interface to an external hybrid for Live callers or an Off-line contest call. Channel fourteen can even be configured with a Windows PC USB interface for use with Live On Air, Automation, & Production software ('Free' Digilink-Xtreme (ARC mode) software is included). With 5 million operation, LED lit, switches; long life faders; and electronic switching of all audio signal paths; the ARC-15 is a rugged, reliable, and versatile console for professional Radio studio applications.

Four types of Input Channels:
  • 1-5 high performance Mic channels
    Channel one is a dedicated mic channel for the board operator. It features talkback to an separate talk studio. Channel 2-5 can be internally set up as either mono mic or stereo line level inputs. The console therefore supports up to 5 mics and is perfect for talk studio applications. Mic channels 2-5 have remote logic control for turret applications.
  • Stereo Line level Channels (balanced)
    Channels 3-8 are stereo, line level input channels appropriate for source devices like CD players, MP3 players, network feeds, etc. The unbalanced model is ideal for studios where these sources are located locally in the studio itself. The balanced model should be selected if some of these sources (such as a satellite feed) are originated in other studios where the wiring could be long and introduce hum & noise.
  • Built-in PC sound card on Channel 14 for Play & Record
    The ARC-15 contains a built-in, Windows compatible, USB sound card on Channel Fourteen for USB connection to a PC. Most Windows compatible audio software can play and record from the console. Digilink-Xtreme (ARC console mode) software comes free with the ARC console. The Digilink-Xtreme software will recognize the ARC-15 console and operate in the "free" ARC-15 mode to provide "Live On Air" features that are ideal for broadcast, internet, or podcast style radio applications. For the ultimate in Automation, full Digilink-Xtreme software (optional) is available throught the 'Xtreme Solutions Program' and provides complete hard disk based automation features for the ARC-15.
  • Telephone Channel on Channel Fifteen for Live On Air Talk or Off-line Contests
    Channel fifteen (15) is a dedicated telephone channel that easily connects to an external telephone hybrid. The caller can talk to you through the Cue system while a 'Push to Talk' button enables the Control Room mic to talk off-line to the caller. Just select the Air or Recording bus then turn the channel on. What could be easier?
