Installation and Power
Unpacking and Installing the Console
The AIR 5 console with its power supply, AC connecting cable, and
“­ Installation and Connections Quick Reference” is shipped in one p
­ acking
box. The console can be unpacked by one person by grasping the console at
both sides, and lifting it upward out of the box. Remove packing m
­ aterials
and store them in the box for future use. Carefully place the console on
your countertop (the AIR 5 audio console is designed for countertop
placement). Avoid proximity to any electromagnetic fields, such as large
power transformers, motors, and fluorescent lighting fixtures.

INSTALLATION AND POWER
Power Supply
The AIR 5 console is powered by a factory
supplied power adapter with 100-240V/50-60Hz
input, 50W maximum output power, and a 4 foot
long output cable.

The power supply adapter is supplied with a 3-wire grounded AC cord that
should be plugged into a “clean” AC power source, that is, an AC source that
feeds only the control room audio gear. This source should be a separate feed
from those powering lighting, air-conditioning, or any other non-audio machinery.
The power feed recommended in the text is often
installed and referred to in
studios as an “isolated AC
ground” outlet. It is usually
­orange in color.
Energizing
Assuming the AIR 5 console mainframe is properly placed, and its power
supply correctly connected to the console, you may now energize the power
­supply adapter by plugging it into the AC mains. The console’s individual module
switches will assume factory default settings.
Note: To de-energize the console, unplug the power supply adapter’s AC cord
from the AC mains. Never de-energize the console by disconnecting the cable
that connects the console and power supply adapter together.
Once you have verified proper power-up, unplug the power supply adapter to de-energize
the console. You may now proceed to wire up audio and control connections.

INSTALLATION AND POWER
Audio and Control Wiring
All audio I/O connections are made via RJ-45 and USB B connectors, and 3‑position
plug terminals on the rear panel of the console.
MIC 1, MIC 2, MIC 3 and MIC 4 3-position plug terminals are for mono mic level
signals and feed internal adjustable preamps that feed faders 1 – 4.
• Fader 1 is mic level only.
• Faders 2 – 4 are switch selectable between MIC 2 - 4 or stereo line RJ-45 inputs
2 – 4. See chapter 2 for programming options.
RJ-45 M1/TB provides pre fader MIC 1 line level out when the fader 1 TB button is
pressed.
RJ-45 2 - 15 are line level stereo inputs that are controlled by faders 2 - 15. Faders 2 - 4
are switch selectable between mic and line level. See Chapter 2 for programming options.
RJ-45 16 PHONE is a mono line level input that is controlled by fader 16.
The USB type B connector is provided to bring in a USB signal from a computer.
The internal USB circuits are enabled by a switch on the rear panel. See Chapter 2 for
programming options.
RJ-45 HYB IN and HYB OUT connectors are to connect to a mono Telephone Hybrid.
HYB IN is internally connected to fader 16.
RJ-45 TB IN/CUE is an unbalanced mono line level input that feeds the cue audio
channel.
RJ-45 EXT IN is a balanced stereo line level input that feeds the monitor circuits when
EXT is selected on the CR.
RJ-45 PGM 1 ST and PGM 2 ST are balanced line level stereo Program 1 and ­Program 2
outputs.
RJ-45 PGM 1 MONO and PGM 2 MONO are balanced line level mono Program 1
and Program 2 outputs.
RJ-45 CR and STUDIO are unbalanced line level stereo Control Room and Studio
outputs.
RJ-45 CUE is an unbalanced mono line level CUE output.
RJ-45 BT is an unbalanced line level stereo Bluetooth output that may be connected
to any of the console’s line level inputs using a RJ-45 straight cable.
RJ-45 PHONE provides ON/OFF logic to the Telephone Hybrid. It is controlled by
the ON/OFF switch on fader 16.
RJ-45 MIC 2, MIC 3 and MIC 4 provide logic inputs and outputs for Remote ON/OFF,
Cough, Talkback to Control Room, and Tally ON/OFF. See a more detailed description
under Control Connections later in this Chapter.
RJ-45 13 AUTOMATION, 14 and 15 provide logic inputs and outputs for Remote
ON/OFF and External Start/Stop.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 1 – 4
INSTALLATION AND POWER
RJ-45 TALLY is provided to hook up an interface to an Air Tally light. This output
comes from a set of relay contacts and is designed to switch a low DC voltage (30 VDC
maximum) at a moderately low current (2 ADC maximum) to activate a DC light, or to
activate an external DC relay which can then be used to activate an AC operated light.
Never bring AC power into the console on this or any other connector.
RJ-45 STU 1, STU 2 and STU 3 are provided for guests headphone connections.
A 5-pin DIN connector is provided to accept console power from the
external power supply.
There is also a phantom power 2.5mm +48V IN power jack as a way to
connect an external source (not provided) for condenser microphones and
direct boxes.
One TRS jack is provided on the right side of the console frame for the
operator to plug in a set of headphones. This is wired as a standard headphone
jack, with the left signal on the tip, the right signal on the ring, and the sleeve
connected to ground.
Unbalanced Connections (analog audio)
ANALOG INPUTS – Wire to the console with typical shielded two conductor cable
(like Belden 9451), just as if you were connecting a balanced source. At the unbalanced
source machine’s output, connect the black wire (LO) to the shield.
ANALOG OUTPUTS – AIR 5 consoles use a balanced output circuit which behaves
exactly like the secondary of a high-quality transformer, with no center tap – this output
is both balanced and floating. Either the HI or LO side of the output should be strapped to
ground, with the output taken from the other side. (Normally you’d strap LO to ground,
and take HIGH to feed your unbalanced equipment.)
AIR 5 / Feb 2016

INSTALLATION AND POWER
Hook-Ups
The rear of the console has multiple RJ-45 connectors to plug in 15 stereo line inputs,
the external input, caller connections to and from hybrid, as well as providing studios,
control room, microphones, PGM, and USB analog output connections. There are also the
four 3-position plug terminals provided for microphone inputs.
An USB port with type B connector available for interfacing with a c­ omputer (see
page 2-3 for details).

Remote ON/OFF
“Remote location” can also refer to a remote source machine that is feeding its a­ udio to
the module in question. A contact closure (which may be sourced by the external ­machine),
will activate the module’s channel ON and OFF switches.
To turn the module ON and OFF from remote locations make following connections:
REMOTE ON – Momentarily connect Logic RJ-45 Pin 7 (Remote ON) and Digital
Ground (Pin1) to latch the module ON. (User-supplied momentary contact switch required.)
REMOTE OFF – Momentarily connect Logic RJ-45 Pin 6 (Remote OFF) and ­Digital
Ground (Pin 1) to latch the module OFF. (User-supplied momentary contact switch required.)
Cough
COUGH – Temporarily Mutes the module. Provide a closure between Mic Logic
RJ‑45 Pin 2 (Cough) and Pin 1 (Digital Ground). This will turn the module OFF. Note
this is a non-latching mode; the module will turn ON again as soon as the closure stops.
­(User-supplied momentary contact switch required.)
External Start/Stop
To Start and Stop remote source machines using ON/OFF switches make the ­following
connections:
EXTERNAL START – Hook up the remote machine’s “start” control pins to the Fader’s
13-15 Logic RJ-45 connector Pin 2 (Start) and Pin 1 (Digital Ground).
EXTERNAL STOP – Hook up the remote machine’s “stop” control pins to the Fader’s
13-15 Logic RJ-45 connector Pin 3 (Stop) and Pin 1 (Digital Ground).

INSTALLATION AND POWER
Talkback to Control Room
The talkback to cue logic input is used to connect an external user-supplied
button that enables the person activating it to talk to the operator in the control
room, via the console’s cue speaker. Provide a closure between MIC 2 - MIC 4
Logic RJ‑45 Pin 3 (TB to CR) and Pin 1 (Digital Ground). This will cause the
module’s pre fader signal to be sent to the console’s Cue bus, where it may be heard
by the console operator. This non-latching ­condition continues until the closure
is released. (Requires user-supplied momentary a­ ction TALKBACK switch at the
studio microphone location.)
ON and OFF Tally
ON Tally – Let’s channel’s ON switch control light indicator at a remote location.
This control function provides a continuous closure between Pin 5 (ON Tally) and
Pin 1 (Digital Ground) whenever the channel’s ON is activated.
OFF Tally – Let’s channel’s OFF switch control light indicator at a remote location.
This control function provides a continuous closure between Pin 4 (OFF Tally) and

CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Controls and Functions
Overview
The AIR 5 builds on the AIR-series by Audioarts with USB input/output connectivity
and Bluetooth compatibility.
Play audio directly from the PC or output audio to PC recording software as well as
receive and record calls from Bluetooth enabled cellphones or play cuts from Bluetooth
enabled MP3 players.
The AIR 5 has four microphone preamps built in, which allows the use of a host
­microphone and three guest microphones without the use of any external mic preamps. It
gives you 16 input faders, plus auto mix-minus for call-ins, two program busses, built-in
CUE speaker and CR, and headphone and studio monitoring control.
With basic features like cue, talkback, and mix-minus included, it’s perfect for smaller
stations looking to upgrade as well as for larger facilities in need of an auxiliary studio
or newsroom console. Add Bluetooth compatibility and USB connectivity for PC news,
production workstations or streaming audio, and the AIR 5 is perfect for news and internet
broadcasts.
Input Section
The AIR 5 console is designed to handle 15 analog stereo line (+4dBu balanced) inputs, one analog (+4dBu balanced) phone input, four mono microphone (-50dBu nominal)
inputs, and one external stereo line level (+4dBu balanced) input that goes directly to
control room or studio.
Analog Mono Mic Level Inputs
These inputs are used to connect to microphones, which typically put out signals at
relatively low signal strength, and therefore require more amplification (increase in signal
strength) to be properly audible in the output. Mic level sources are pluged into the four
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 2
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
3‑pin headers located on the rear of the console. On the rear of the console also are the
M1 - M 4 GAIN trimpots for adjusting the level of each microphone input independently.
Example: With a microphone input of –60dBm @150ohm at the port, gain trim can set levels from
-22dBu to +16dBu (note maximum preamp gain is +76dB) at the PGM 1 or PGM 2 output.
Looking at the rear of the console, there are four RJ-45 connectors labeled
M1/TB OUT, M 2 - M 4. The MI/TB OUT is the output of the M1 preamp. The M 2 - M 4
microphone preamplifiers internally wired to the line inputs that feed the 2 - 4 faders
where you will control the microphone levels.
Faders 2 - 4 can be programmed to accept a line level signal via SW42 on the
MBL‑AIR5 PCB (described in the “Console Internal Programming” section).
Analog Stereo Line Level Inputs
These inputs are typically used to connect to machines, such as tape decks, cart
machines, CD players, etc., that provide analog outputs. As mentioned above, you can
also feed these inputs from the outputs of the internal mic preamps.
USB Port
The AIR 5’s Slot 15 can be programmed to accept USB signal. The console
contains a USB 2.0 interface, available via the USB Type B connector on the
rear panel, to enable audio to pass between the console and
a USB port on a computer. Internally, Program 1 is the audio
from the console to the computer. Audio coming back from
the computer via USB shows up as a stereo analog signal
on the 15 USB fader. USB can be switched ON and OFF
via dipswitch SW43 (described in the “Console Internal
Programming” section).
Using the USB Port . . .
Any computer having a USB port and installed drivers capable of passing
and utilizing digital audio data should work with the AIR 5 USB port. Use a
cable having a USB Type B connector on the AIR 5 end and a connector on
the other end that will mate with the computer’s USB port; this will typically
be a USB Type A connector.
. . . With a MAC
In general, this will be a plug-and-play process. The main concern is to
choose the USB Audio Codec under System Preferences>Sound as desired for
audio input and/or output. Then simply start the application.
. . . With a Windows® PC
When you first connect the AIR 5 USB port to a PC running Windows
you will see the famous “found new hardware” sequence of messages. At
some point this sequence should end with a message that the new hardware is
­installed and ready to use.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 3
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Setting up any given application to use the AIR 5 USB port will depend on the
­application itself. Generally, you will need to select the appropriate device from a list of
devices in a Preferences dialog.
As an example, let’s look at WinAmp, a free software application used by millions
to play back audio streams from a network (or the Internet), or to play audio streams
into a network.
To play audio from the AIR 5 on the computer:
• Install the free LineIn plugin for WinAmp.
• Under Preferences - Input select the LineIn plugin from the Input list and click
Configure, then find the USB Audio Codec in the list of available devices and note
its corresponding device number, which you will need below.
• In WinAmp, choose Play URL...
• Enter “line://dev=n” where ‘n’ is the device value that you discovered above.
• Now when you click Play, WinAmp will play the AIR 5 audio on the output device
selected in WinAmp. This could be speakers, a sound card, or even an output stream.
To play audio from the computer on the AIR 5:
• Under WinAmp Preferences - Output select an output plugin and click Configure,
then select the USB Audio Codec as the device.
• Play the desired computer audio with WinAmp and the audio will appear at the
15 USB connector on the back of the AIR 5.
Other Computers
If your computer does not use one of the above operating systems, or otherwise
behaves differently than described above, consult the documentation for that computer,
operating system, and/or application.
General Considerations
If any problems are encountered, please consider the following points:
• PGM 1 is the source of the audio that is output from the AIR 5 on the USB port.
• The audio coming back into the AIR 5 on the USB port is available at the 15 USB
fader.
• If you are not able to get the audio into or out of the USB port, check the USB
cable, its connections at both ends, and the port selection settings in the application you are using.
• If you have the audio flowing where you want and it suddenly becomes intermittent or disappears, check the USB cable and the connections at both ends.
• Once you have the USB audio under control it is a good idea to make a record of
the application being used, including its version number, the audio direction (into
or out of the computer), and all the settings that were required to make it work.
This information will be invaluable if you later have to troubleshoot the USB
audio, or set it up on another computer.

CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Program Assign
Output switches assign the selected source signal to any combination of the
console’s two stereo Program outputs – PGM 1 and PGM 2. The button will
be lit when the source is assigned to its respective bus. To remove a source
from the bus, press the button again; the light will go off to indicate that the
source is no longer assigned to that bus.
Recessed rear panel trimpots adjust the left and right levels of PGM 1 and
PGM 2 outputs.
CUE Button
A CUE switch places the channel’s signal on the console’s cue bus, where
it may be heard on the meterbridge mounted cue speaker, as an interrupt to
the console operator’s headphones, and as an interrupt to the control room
monitor speakers, if so programmed.
Press the CUE button. The channel’s input signal will be included in the
console’s CUE output at a level that is independent of the FADER ­setting, and
the button will light. The fader does not need to be turned ON. To r­ emove a
fader from cue, press the CUE BUTTON again; the light will go off to indicate
the channel is no longer assigned to cue.
MIC1 TB Button
When the MIC 1 TB switch on the console’s Slot 1 is pressed (it is ­momentary
action), the pre‑on pre‑faders microphone (MIC 1) will interrupt the studio
(STU1 , STU 2, and STU 3) signal, thus allowing the DJ to talk to the talent
and guests.
Fader
Level is set by a long-throw fader. The fader is the sliding mechanism
that determines how strong is the presence of the input in some of the ­various
console outputs.
If the fader is all the way down (that is, pulled toward the console o
­ perator),
the signal will not be present in either of the two program main buses to which
it is assigned. As the fader is moved up (that is, pushed away from the console
operator) the signal will appear more strongly in each of the main buses to
which it is assigned.
ON Button
The ON button turns the channel on and off by means of electronic s­ witching
and can simultaneously start external source machines. The channel is ON
when the ON button is lit. These can also be programmed (as mentioned in
the previous chapter) to activate control room mute and on air tally.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 5
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Simple Phone
The caller section is used for the telephone call-in talk segments, and
­controls the audio for the caller. The caller signal enters the console from your
station hybrid.
The caller feed can be either or both of the two Program buses. The caller
feed will never contain the caller’s own voice.
A recessed rear panel trimpot (HYBRID IN/OUT) adjusts the caller input/
output level.
Program Assign
Output switches assign the caller to any combination of the console’s two
Program outputs (PGM 1 and PGM 2), and permit live talk-ins.
Pressing either of the two program switches causes the caller’s audio to be
included in the output mix for that bus, at a level dependent on the FADER
­setting, as long as the caller section is ON. The button will be lit when the caller
is assigned to its respective bus. To remove the caller from a bus to which it is
currently assigned, press the button again; the light will go off to indicate that
the caller is no longer assigned to that bus.
CUE Button
The CUE button allows interviewing the caller prior to airing by i­ ncluding
the caller’s voice in the console’s cue bus, where it may be heard on the meterbridge mounted cue speaker.
Fader
The long-throw fader sets the caller’s signal level.
If a fader is all the way down the caller’s voice will not be present in either
of the two Program buses (PGM 1 and PGM 2) to which the phone is assigned.
As the fader is moved up the signal will appear more strongly in each of the
main buses to which the phone is assigned.
The fader position will also affect the strength of the caller in the cue output.
ON Button
The ON button determines if the phone channel is ON or OFF. The c­ hannel
is ON when the ON button is lit. The button can also be used to provide external
start logic for the hybrid.
If the phone channel is OFF, caller signal will not be present in any main
bus output, regardless of the status of the Program buttons or the position of
the fader. If the phone channel is OFF its signal will still be present in the cue
output if it has been assigned to cue.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 6
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Caller Set-Ups
Pre-air segment communication between the console operator (DJ) and
c­ allers is aided by the CUE button, which places the caller’s voice on the
console’s cue speaker and headphones, and (if so programmed) CR s­ peakers.
­Additionally, pressing the MIC1TB switch sends the MIC1 signal to the caller
output.
A typical call-in segment might proceed as follows:
Caller phones in, DJ picks up off-air during a track play to set up the
call. He places the caller in CUE, and talks to the caller by pressing the TB
­button. Neither the DJ mic nor the phone channel need to be ON for two-way
­communication.
When he is ready to take the call on-air, the DJ makes sure his mic and
phone are assigned to PGM 1 or PGM 2 and turns them ON. He then d
­ eactivates
caller CUE to hear the normal feed.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016

CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Control Room
This is the console operator’s monitor that allows the
­ perator to listen to the console’s two stereo Program outputs
o
and an external stereo line level input. This section of the
­console includes the monitor level controls for the control
room, headphone, and cue circuits.
In a typical radio application the console is located in the
Control Room. Speakers in the Control Room allow the console
operator to listen to the console bus outputs to be assured that
the console is performing as desired. These speakers are fed
by a stereo signal from the console’s Control Room output.
In addition to the Control Room output, the operator may also
desire to listen to specific isolated faders via the cue system
and the console’s internal cue speaker, or may want to listen
via headphones. Thus, the control room monitor consists of
the above mentioned level controls, along with two program
assign (PGM 1 and PGM 2) buttons, and an external input
(EXT) button.
In some instances the console operator may also be
­performing talent whose voice will be heard over the radio.
The ­operator’s microphone may thus provide a part of the
signal that is going out over the air. If that signal is the one
being monitored with the Control Room speakers, there is the
­potential for feedback. The amplified signal from the Control
Room speakers is picked up by the microphone and amplified
to a new, higher, level, which then is once again picked up by
the microphone. The signal quickly rises to an ear-splitting
screech. To prevent this, the operator’s microphone is normally
set to MUTE the Control Room output to prevent the occurrence of feedback.
The master CUE circuit drives a meterbridge-mounted
speaker through a built-in power amp, and can be programmed
to interrupt control room feed to the control monitor speakers.
It also automatically interrupts the headphone feed.
Program Select
Pressing either of the two program (PGM 1 or PGM 2) switches allows the operator
to listen to the selected output bus. The button will be lit when the monitor is assigned
to its respective bus.
EXT Switch
Pressing the EXT switch allows the operator to pick up the external input (useful for
such items as tape recorders or air returns) to listen.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 8
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
CONTROL ROOM Fader
The CONTROL ROOM fader determines the overall loudness of the signal being monitored as it appears in the Control
Room speakers.
If the fader is all the way down (that is, pulled toward the
console ­operator), the signal will not be present in either of the
two program main buses to which it is assigned. As the fader
is moved up (that is, pushed away from the console operator)
the signal will appear more strongly in each of the main buses
to which it is assigned.
NOTE: If the Control Room is muted and you move the
fader all the way up, then remove the condition that has
the Control Room muted, the sound in the Control Room
speakers will suddenly be VERY LOUD!
HEADPHONE Fader
The HEADPHONE fader determines the overall loudness of
the headphone output signal, which monitors the same source
(PGM 1, PGM 2, or EXT) as the Control Room speakers.
The headphone output signal appears at the HEADPHONE
JACK, located beneath the armrest near the right side of the
console. The jack is provided as a place to plug in user-supplied
stereo headphones having an impedance of 60 Ohms or higher.
CUE Level Control
The CUE level control determines the overall loudness of
the cue signal as it appears in the console’s cue speaker (located
behind the grill in the METERBRIDGE).
Like the Control Room speakers, the cue speaker also has
the potential for feedback. To avoid this situation, operator mics
that mute the Control Room will also mute the cue speaker.
NOTE: If cue is muted and you turn the level control all the
way up, then remove the condition that has the cue muted,
the sound in the cue speaker will suddenly be VERY LOUD!
TB TO CALLER Button
The TB button lets the operator’s pre-on pre-fader microphone signal interrupt the
normal feed to the hybrid out, allowing the operator to talk to the caller.
A connection is provided on the console’s MIC 2 - MIC 4 RJ-45 connectors to wire up
a MIC 2 - MIC4 TB to CUE switch provided by the user. This switch enables a guest using
MIC 2 - MIC 4 to talk back to the Control Room over the console’s cue system.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 9
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Meters
The METERS section consists of two VU meter pairs on the console’s meterbridge
and a METERS select button, located on the Control Room section.
VU Meter Pairs
VU meter pairs (PROGRAM 1 VU and SWITCHED VU) are stereo LED
bargraph type meters.
The level of the signal being metered is indicated by the number of display
elements that are lighted. The more elements lighted, the stronger is the signal
being displayed. The right four LEDs in each bargraph are red to indicate when
the signal level is approaching a clipping (distorted) level. The next four LEDs are y
­ ellow,
indicating a normal level range, and the remaining LEDs are green. The top member
of the pair indicates the level of the signal’s left channel, while the bottom member of
the pair indicates the level of the signal’s right channel. Peak (CLIP) indication is also
provided.
The left VU meter pair shows the level of the PGM 1 output, while the right VU meter
pair (the SWITCHED VU) shows the level of the PGM 2 output when the METER EXT
button is OFF, or the EXT signal when the METER EXT button is ON.
METER Select Button
The METER button selects the source for the switched meter pair, as indicated above.
On Air LED
The ON AIR LED, located in the middle of the meterbridge, lights up when
any of the 1 through 4 input channel is programmed by d
­ ipswitch to have the
MUTE/TALLY dipswitch activated, and is also ON.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 10
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Console Programming Options
All programming is made via three MBL-AIR5 PCB-mounted d
­ ipswitches located on
the ­console’s rear panel.
• SW 41 selects Bluetooth source.
• SW 42 selects the mic or line level input signals for M2 - M4, and enables CR mute
and AIR TALLY.
• SW 43 selects the p
­ hantom power source, programs the control room cue, and swtches
the USB ON and OFF.
When a dipswitch position is up it is ON.
Bluetooth Source Selection
Dipswitch SW41 selects the source for Bluetooth:
SW41 pos.1 selects PGM 1 Mono.
SW41 pos.2 selects PGM 2 Mono.
SW41 pos.3 selects 16 PHONE.
CR Mutes
Input channels 1 - 4 can be programmed to mute the control room speakers when the
channel is ON. Positions 1 through 4 of the SW 42 dipswitch, when activated, a­ utomatically
mute the console’s control room and cue speakers when the corresponding channels 1
through 4 are turned ON. This is done to prevent feedback from the CR announcer’s mic.
At the same time the ON AIR LED in the center of the meterbridge will light up.
Mic or Line Selection
Dipswitch SW 42 pos.5 - 7 when ON will select the mic level source for the input
c­ hannels 2 - 4, respectively. Note that channel 1 is always microphone input and that line
level sources are connected to RJ-45’s 2 - 4.
Phantom Power
Dipswitch SW 43 positions 1 through 4, turns phantom power ON for the microphone
input ports M1 through M4, respectively.
USB ON
Dipswitch SW 43 pos.5 when ON will turn the USB ON to have the audio coming from
the computer to be a stereo analog signal on fader 15 USB.
AIR 5 / Feb 2016
page 2 – 11
CONTROLS AND FUNCTIONS
Split Cue, Headphone
Consoles are normally programmed at the factory for CUE to appear on the left
c­ hannel, while L+R sum of the control room output appears on the right. To defeat this
split cue option, move the dipswitch SW 43 pos.6 down (OFF). Then cue will interrupt
both sides of the headphones.
Cue Interrupt
The dipswitch SW 43 pos.7, when activated, sends cue to the control room. Note,
there is no CUE on the input channel 1.
On Air Tally
For controlling the “on-air” tally function, a relay is provided. The
tally is activated when any channel set for CR mute is turned on or put
into cue.
The relay connections are available at the TALLY RJ-45 connector
mounted on the left of the console’s rear. Connect the on-air light to the
external user-provided relay. Do not bring on-air light AC connections
to any pin of any connector on the console.

Replacement Parts List..................................................................A-2
For the most part there are no user-replaceable parts in the
AIR 5 console. Exceptions are those controls and components that in
the course of normal use may need maintenance (i.e., faders, pots, ON
switches, etc.). A complete list of available components is shown on the
next page. Contact Audioarts Engineering technical support for further
