AIRENCE 

Upgrade your radio station with the Airence-USB mixer, a modern, split-version radio production mixer designed to meet all your broadcasting needs.

Featuring an integrated USB-based control section, this smart mixer is built with well-proven low-noise circuitry, making it the ideal split console for self-op production DJs.

With built-in Telephone Hybrids (2x), 4 channels USB, and 4 Mic inputs, the Airence-USB mixer is ideal for streaming to the web and seamlessly sending and accepting 4 stereo channels from your Play-out software.

Its heavy-duty (19" rack) RF-shielded chassis is designed to drop seamlessly into your furniture, housing all vertically mounted input modules with K-Alps faders.

Looking to expand your setup? Extension units with six triple input channels, featuring high-end quality Mic inputs on XLR and two stereo line-level inputs on Cinch (RCA) connectors, can be easily connected to the main unit.

Experience the future of radio broadcasting with the Airence-USB modern split drop-through 12 (or 18/24) fader radio console that sets the standard for quality and innovation.

If you purchased your unit before 2022 (version 9 or lower), please note that it cannot be combined with units purchased after 01-01-2022 (version 10).

A critical internal change in the power supply (from 36v to 12v) has been implemented. Attempting to connect an old unit to a new one will result in severe damage to your equipment.

Please ensure that you are using compatible units to avoid any potential damage. If you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to contact our technical support team for assistance.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

options

VoIP

You have the option to order the Airence-USB main unit with built-in VoIP channels on position 5 and/or 6, or even a combination of 1x Telco and 1x VoIP.

Telco/VoIP channel 5 and 6 feature:

  • RJ-11 connectors to interface with an analog telephone line and a common dial unit.

  • Apart from the stereo line input, they also include RJ-11 connectors.

  • In case a VoIP module is installed, one of the RJ-11 connectors is replaced by 1x USB connector. The other RJ-11 connector has a clean-feed signal on pin 1 and 4.

 

Both analog high-quality built-in hybrids with R and C balance have:

  • Direct Talk back to the Hybrid channels, making conversation with callers very easy.

This is also possible when VoIP modules are built in. Simply pushing the Cue button enables conversation between the DJ and the caller outside the broadcast.

 

If you choose to add the VoIP board later:

  • Purchase the VoIP board from our Webshop.

  • You can easily install it yourself. A small instruction manual will be included.

 

Please note:

  • The VoIP option can only be used inside Airence Main units with SMD-component made printed boards inside.

Digital output (AES)

Master Airence main

You have the option to order an optional digital AES output for your Airence Main unit.

  • AES output connector: In some versions of the Airence Main, we use the second redundant power supply connector for this purpose. In the current new versions, there is a third 3-pole XLR connector located to the left of the redundant 5-pole connector.

 

This option provides digital input and output, allowing you to go fully digital to the transmitter or other broadcast devices connected to the Airence Main.

 

Default AES settings:

  • Headroom:

    • With jumper: -20dBFS

    • Without jumper: -9dBFS

  • Sample Rate:

    • With jumper: 48kHz

    • Without jumper: 96kHz

 

If you choose to add the AES output option later:

  • Purchase the AES output option from our Webshop.

  • You can easily install it yourself.

 

For the best experience, we recommend mentioning this option when you purchase the Airence Main unit from one of our partners. This allows us to integrate it into the production process for you.

 

Please note:

  • The AES Output option can only be used inside Airence Main units with SMD-component made printed boards inside.

RIAA pre-amp

You have the option to add our RIAA pre-amp board to all six channels of your Airence Extender unit.

This upgrade allows you to:

  • Connect old-fashioned record players to the mixer, bringing back the good old times on your modern broadcast equipment.

 

These boards can be purchased from our Webshop and are simple to connect inside the mixer on one of the boards by yourself.

 

Please note:

  • These RIAA pre-amp boards can only be used inside the Extender unit of the Airence, NOT inside the Main unit.

power supply

Every Airence unit, Main and Extender, is individually powered by a 12V switched-mode power supply.

For added reliability, a power supply redundancy option is available for the Main unit.

This option includes an additional power input connector.

metering software 

airence screenshot

The Airence sends out control signals over USB, based on the HID protocol.

This enables:

  • Display of main output signals on a TFT screen using a beautiful meter application.

  • High-resolution PPM display of both Program and Sub stereo signals.

  • A smaller separate stereo meter on the right-hand side of the meter application shows all signals heard through the CRM speakers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additionally, the software application provides:

  • A professional-looking Radio clock synchronized with your local PC.

  • A software program, Airence Virtual Keyboard Mapper, is included for programming the Control section.

 

All software can be downloaded from our Wiki-page, where we always include the latest up-to-date versions.

overall

The Airence-USB is designed to be the focal point for local radio production work, whether in the studio or at home. Its understandable features make it the ideal companion for rapid on-the-spot radio programs.

  • Compact and reliable: The Airence is compact, reliable, and designed for 19" rack mounting, making it ideal for production rooms. It can also double as an On-Air mixer or be implemented as your own Internet Radio station.

  • Budget-friendly: Start with the 6-channel version, which is a complete system to begin with.

 

And here's the best part:

  • Future-proof design: The Airence never becomes obsolete. It can be used as a pre-production mixer. Later, if you decide to upgrade to a larger On-Air mixer, the Airence can still be used. Need more inputs? Simply hook up the Airence-Extender unit, and instantly you have 6 more triple inputs. Not enough? Buy another 6-channel unit to expand to 18 or even more input channels.
