Only one physical USB connection is the interface to transfer 3 stereo audio channels + VoIP signal from and to your PC and also includes all data from the control section and the software meter application. The VoIP Channel 6 is at the same time also routed to the main USB connector.
Talk back to the VOIP channel is by pushing both "Mic CUE" and "VoIP CUE" to make conversation with callers very easy prior to broadcasting.
The Webstation has a very musical 2 band equalizer. High quality low noise mic inputs with built in low cut filters and software switchable phantom powering on board.
The Webstation’s modules can be easily tailored
to your own needs with the included software program
page shown below.
All 6 modules have their own page, where you can
program Cue reset enabled by Line, Mic, Fader, On etc.
The Mic On busses (for your ON-AIR light) can be
enabled by Line or Mic or USB.
A great feature is the ability to program your own
switch colors, activate the CRM mute module and
program the Studio Remote.
Additionally if you want your Phantom power on
or off this is individually programmable per channel.
All personal settings can be stored (write) and
The Back panel houses:
- XLR connectors for your microphones.
- Cinch connectors for line level input
sources and outputs.
- A jack MIC ON connector to activate
your ON-AIR light.
- A USB connector for interfacing with
your play- out software.
- The power supply connector.
The Webstation is powered by an internal lownoise heavy duty switched mode power supplythat accepts AC voltages between 85voltand 264 volts and has a standard Euroconnectorwith fuse on the back of the
The control surface can be easily mounted insidefurniture as a drop through unit.
All in andoutput connections are conveniently madeon standard Jack / Cinch and XLR connectors.
The Webstation has an internal USB voice tracking bus that can be directly routed to a play-out system with Voice tracking capabilities.
A very low noise mic input, followed by a 2 band equalizer, drives a smooth running fader controlling a stereo VCA.
The faderstart is
electronically detected by the fader.
The Webstation can also be used for production while ON-AIR when it is put into the NON-STOP mode.
The NON-STOP switch routes the first USB channel (3) directly to the main outputs. It does this automatically when the
internal silence detector detects silence. The CUE switch is also a communication system to easily talk to callers from outside.
The Webstation is designed for ON-AIR Internet radio production work in the studio or at home.
Every Webstation USB Channel can accept a stereo source from a play-out system.
Levels can be set by the gain control. Pre listening can be done by the CUE switch and the ON switch can activate tracks of the Play-out system.
This can also be done by “faderstart”.
The CUE is also a communication bus that allows callers on the VoIP channel to listen to the music and DJ when its CUE is activated without being on-air.
There are three USB stereo in- and outputs available on the Webstation.
The inputs are internally routed to channel 3 to 5 where the USB input of channel three is also routed to the Non-Stop switch when activated.
The USB outputs, seen as inputs on your PC, are connected to the Program output and Voice track bus.
Channel 6 of the Webstation mixer is a dedicated Voice Over Internet Protocol channel. (VoIP).
Simply set up a connection, for instance with SKYPE.
A separate Gain control and VoIP send control let you adjust the send and return levels.
An incoming call can be picked up by the Conn button, pre-listened by the CUE switch and brought into your radioshow by the ON switch and/or Fader.
If you want to use an analog or digital telephone hybrid, we have added an extra cleanfeed output on the back of the console to feed an external hybrid and return the signal into the line input of your VoIP channel with the input selector selected to Line.
The DJ Mic can be routed to the caller outside the broadcast by activating the CUE switch in both Mic and VoIP input modules.
In the control SECTION of the Webstation mixer you see 12 illuminated (green/red) switches.
These switches can be used to control functions in your Radio Automation Software
such as starting jingles or
Recording a voice track while ON-AIR.
The USB control software can be easily programmed to make radio even more exciting.
Any switch can perform a function of your play-out software.
Thre are controls for Phones and CRM.
When activating the Auto Cue for CRM any selected CUE can be heard.
As soon as the DJ mic opens, the CRM mutes to avoid feedback but only if CRM auto Cue (auto deactivate) is set to ON.
The NON-STOP switch instantly routes the first USB stereo signal (channel 3) to the master outputs which makes the mixer available for (pre) production again.
The control surface can be easily mounted inside furniture as a drop through unit.
All in and output connections are conveniently made on standard Jack / Cinch and XLR connectors.
Also the master section has various options to fine trim the mixer to your needs.
This all can be done within the software that you can always download for free on our Wiki-page. This software will always be the latest up-to-date version.
There are settings that adjust the Silence Detection with parameters for Threshold, Interval time and the source.
You can even program the switch colors you personally like. Also the CUE bus can be set to behave interlocking, which means that when you select another CUE the earlier selected CUE automatically switches off.
Don't let the simple lay-out fool you, there is much going on beneath the front panel to make your life easier as DJ!
The modules can be easily programmed to your personal needs by way of activating specific mixing desk functions in the software.
All 6 modules have their own page, where you can program Cue reset enabled by Mic, Line, USB, Fader, On, Fader + On.
The MIC-ON bus (for your ON-AIR light) can be enabled by Mic, Line or USB.
A great feature is the ability to program your own switch colours, activate the CRM mute module.
Additionally if you want your Phantom power on or off individually programmable per channel this can also easily done.
The Webstation sends out control signals over USB, based on the HID protocol.
This also means that the master output signals can be displayed on a TFT screen (not supplied) in a beautiful meter application. Program and CRM stereo signals are shown on a high resolution Peak Program Meter
Indicators such as NON-STOP mode, Silence detection,
Mic-On and CRM mute. Channel status and input selection is displayed at the bottom of the TFT screen (not supplied).
At the same time this software application shows you a professional looking Radio clock that is synchronized with your local PC and an NTP time server.
