Sonifex Announce New S1 Mixer For Release at IBC2009
14th September 2009
At the IBC2009 on stand number 8.E61, Sonifex are premiering the S1 Radio Broadcast Mixer which is a small format hybrid analogue/digital radio broadcast mixer.
Managing Director, Marcus Brooke commented: “Our existing S2 mixer has had fantastic sales since its release five years ago but we’ve had many requests for a fixed format, low cost version of the S2. The S1 fulfils that requirement. It has an amazing feature set and offers a proper broadcast solution to community, educational and student radio stations that need a versatile, reliable radio broadcast mixer.“
“What people really like about the S2 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 so we’re really excited about the potential for this little console.”
The Sonifex S1 mixer is a high performance compact, low cost, fixed format mixing console designed for on-air radio use. It 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.
The S1 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.
