that meets the needs for most On Air Radio & Radio Production studio

style source equipment with off the shelf cables for installation similar to
a home stereo system. The third model (ARC-10BP) supports balanced
professional sources which may require custom cables by experienced
radio personnel.
The ARC-10 features ten mixing channels. Channels One & Two
are high performance mic channels for on air talent with a guest. Seven
stereo line input channels easily handle the other audio sources, such as
CD players, found in most studios. Channel nine (ARC-10UP & ARC-10BP)
features a Windows PC USB sound card for use with Live On Air, Automation, & Production software.
Channel ten is an advanced telephone interface to an external

AARC-NET ethernet audio networking
AARC-NET from Arrakis Systems is a seamless integration of Arrakis consoles & automation, ‘Cobranet’ audio networking
products, and Arrakis software. Cobranet is THE world standard in audio networking with over 1,000,000 nodes installed.
All Cobranet products from different manufacturers work together to form a powerful audio network. The core of the
AARC-NET network are Cobranet products from AudioScience. Plug-in compatible with the Arrakis ARC & MARC & X-MIXER
consoles, installation & setup takes minutes. No more punchblocks or multipair cables. Changing a wiring connection is a
simple software choice. AARC-NET is fast, easy, and inexpensive.
One of the important features of AARCNET is that it integrates standard analog and digital consoles onto the network instead of using expensive network based digital mix engines. You can therefore integrate consoles that you already
own into the system. This makes repair and maintenance easy, and your console doesn’t fail when the network crashes.
Most importantly, AARC-NET is world standard Cobranet, not a custom one-of-a-kind network.
Inexpensive...
a standard AARC-NET system is 1/3rd to 1/2 the price of competing systems, thus bringing
networked audio within the reach of the entire radio market.

for a professional balanced audio & SPDIF digital output.
Interface with Arrakis ARC series consoles... When a PC running NEW~WAVE software is connected via
USB cable to an Arrakis ARC series console, NEW~WAVE will auto-recognize the console and use the console‘s built in
play-record sound card as its main sound card. The PC’s internal sound card will be used for a second play output for production and cueing. This merges the console and software into a powerful integrated radio workstation.

or internet radio applications. The on air audio output can be sent to a transmitter for over the air broadcast and-or to
another PC for streaming by SurferNetwork, Live365, or other service providers. Podcast programs can be recorded and

recording) one program while another scheduled program can be playing from the Automation output.

Playlist can be played at the same time to air without conflict.
On Air Automation (a second Program output)... NEW~WAVE features an automation player that plays from a
schedule stored on disk. The automation player will play to the live on air sound card or to a separate sound card for automation on air while using the live on air hot keys or play list for another program.
Recording Programs for play On air, Podcasting, etc... The on air screen features a recorder for recording a
live program created by the Hot Keys and Play list. When connected to an Arrakis ARC series console, the recorder will
record the main Program output of the console complete with a mix of the mic, NEW~WAVE audio, and all console channels.
Voice Track Recording... Once an automation schedule is created in NEW~WAVE, voice tracks may be recorded directly in the scheduling screen. The voice tracks are automatically inserted and saved in the schedule. The overlap will
be automatically set to the EOM time of the preceeding audio event. Voice tracks will be automatically deleted from the
library once played in the automation player.
Perfect overlaps every time... Every audio file can be tagged with an EOM time to start play of the next audio
file. Listen to the end of the audio file in the NEW~WAVE library screen and select the EOM point. When the file is played
back in the play list the overlap will always be perfect.

DHD-Tools software for Traffic, Production,
Library Management, Music scheduling,
and Local or Remote Voice Tracking
Designed from the ground up for today’s fast paced, distributed content, single station or multi-site Group. It empowers local and remote talent to
collaborate to deliver exciting content, build your audience share, and increase sales. DHD has the tools to enable you to work faster, work smarter, and do more.
For On Air, DHD supports live on air, live assist, hard disk automation, satellite automation, and Games automation. DHD supports multiple sound cards for interface to a console and live crossfading. DHD supports any kind of programming and any size market or multi-site group.
To manage audio content, audio files can be shared across the station or across the planet. While DHD fully supports both 3rd party
traffic and music schedulers, it also features a powerful internal Traffic scheduler and sophisticated Music scheduler.
To create live sounding automation and facilitate flexible use of talent, DHD features a powerful segue editor, voice track recorder-editor,
and remote voice tracking over a VPN (virtual private network). The voice track recorder-editor supports complete control plus the ability to assign
a music bed under the voice track with ducking.
While Digilink-HD is used in all on air studios, a software utility named ‘DHD-Tools’ is used in all support studios: traffic, production,
library management, music scheduling, local voice tracking, remote voice tracking, and more. The program is user configured to match the exact
need of the specific studio and talent working it. DHD-Tools can be mapped to up to ten network studios (local or remote) to manage libraries,
schedule, do production, and much more.
In today’s competitive Radio market, product cost and the cost of support are always a consideration. So, Digilink-HD is available (1) at
a per month cost as a return at any time ‘Solutions’ program or (2) as a traditional purchase with a year of support and optional out-of-warranty
support programs. Both programs have discounted prices for two or more studios at a single site.
Digilink-HD is ideal for any size broadcast or streaming radio application.
