the most personal options,

                            inside an analog radio mixer


We designed the DR AIRMATE-12 to fulfill the requirements for a high grade radio production mixer. This console is the reliable workhorse for the self-op production D.J. that needs an internal two Telephone Hybrid and USB connection to the PC (e.q. for streaming to the web).

A heavy-duty 19″ rack-mounted RF shielded chassis houses 12 vertical triple input modules, giving flexibility rarely found in a mixer of this type.

Eight input channels with high quality balanced microphone inputs on XLR and two stereo line level inputs on Cinch (RCA) connectors. Every Mic input has an insert for signal processors.

And… every line level line B input can be converted into a phono (record player) channel by simply fitting an optional stereo R.I.A.A. equalized phono pre-amp.

The DR AIRMATE-12 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 DR AIRMATE-12.

In addition, there is a special Radio On-air/production section featuring; Self op 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.
