AIRMATE-12-USB

FADER STARTS & CLEANFEEDS

We designed the Airmate-12-USB to fulfill the requirements for a high grade low cost radio production mixer.

Built around well proven low noise circuitry, this console is the reliable workhorse for the self-op production D.J. that needs an internal Telephone Hybrid (2x) or VoIP (2x) and USB connection to the PC (e.q. for streaming to the web).

A heavy duty RF shielded chassis houses 8 vertical triple input modules giving flexibility rarely found in a mixer of this type.

Six 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 (gramophone) channel by simply fitting an optional stereo R.I.A.A. equalized phono pre-amp.

AIRMATE-12-US BACKVIEW

TELEPHONE HYBRIDS

This new Airmate-12-USB model has 10 balanced mic inputs (+48 phantom is standard) with insert, 20 stereo line inputs, 2x USB and 2x Hybrids. (Telco or and VoIP)

Channel 9 and 10 have Mic/Line and USB interface to transfer audio from and to your PC.

Channel 11 and 12 have, apart from the stereo line input, also RJ-11 connectors to interface with a POT (Plain Old Telephone) line and a Telephone appliance to dial the number you want to reach.

High quality built in Hybrids with R (trimmer on the surface) and C balance (switch on the surface) and direct Connection and Talkback buttons in the Hybrid channels makes a conversation with listeners very easy.

With the Telco Send (level to the caller) and Telco Gain (level coming from the caller) all levels can be easy adjusted.

But be always aware of the fact that the RC balance has to be adjusted once to create a clean telephone signal send and receive. The manual will give info about this pretty simple procedure. The front panel ON switch is wired in series with the built in mechanical fader start enabling selection of start either by fader or hard start via the ON switch. Faderstart generates in the Mic mode a Mic-on sig­nalling to switch on ON-Air lights. There is a 3 band Equalizer on channel 1-10. The stereo Aux send can be set pre or post fader. All mic inputs have low cut jumpers.

A clean feed send is available for external analog and digital Hybrids.

VoIP | ISDN | GSM

VOIP | ISDN | GSM

We also offer dedicated VoIP channels for the AIRMATE-12-USB, or a combination of one TELCO module and one VoIP module.

If you still want to use a classic analogue or digital Hybrid we have designed a cleanfeed output on pin 1-4 of the RJ11 connector. You can return the Hybrid signal on the line input of the VoIp module.

Please tell your dealer the combination you want.

 

SOFTWARE

NOW IS THE TIME TO INSTALL YOUR OWN PRODUCTION ROOM

The Airmate-12-USB has the usual master controls such as stereo master 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 addition, there is a special Radio On-air/production section featuring; Self­op 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.

YOUR PRODUCTION STUDIO

The Airmate-12-USB is designed to be the focal point for local radio production work in the studio or at home. It’s compre­hensive, yet understandable features make it the ideal companion for rapid on-the-spot radio programs.

Small, reliable and ideal for production rooms. It can also double as an On-Air mixer or implemented in your own Internet Radio station.

If your budget is tight, it never becomes obsolete as it can revert to production use, if, at a later date you fit in a larger On-Air mixer.

ON-AIR LIGHT

ON-AIR lamp

Only € 125,--


We can supply you a perfect matching ON-AIR lamp for € 125,--  Actually there is no lamp inside anymore, just everlasting high intensity red leds.
The unit is powered by a 12 volt DC 450 mA external power supply which is included in the price.

And what's more... no hassle with how do I connect this thing to my AIRMATE-USB.

No complicated AC switching with external relays etc. etc.

What you only need is one stereo cable (wired tip/ring) coming from the MIC-ON (located in the master section)  connector on the back of the AIRMATE-USB console that goes directly hardwired to a barrier strip inside the ON-AIR
LAMP.  How easy for a change.

The power adapter will also be directly wired to the barrier strip inside the unit.

Dimensions:
Width 260mm, Height: 125mm, Depth: 65mm

Cable entry holes and key slot holes in the backside.

What Customers tell us

 

Many thanks.

As a radio station owner in UK I have had around 7 of your mixers in the past decade. Excellent product!

Since installing the new D&R Airmate USB mixer in the studio there have been three occasions where I needed advice from their Customer Services department. The latest was yesterday.

 

Once again they replied within 3 hours of sending my email and answered my query in a very professional and courteous manner.

 

It is rare to find a level of service like this these days and all I can say is if anybody is considering buying a high quality mixer for their radio station or Home Studio, they could do a lot worse than buy a D&R mixer.

 

Great products keenly priced very high quality and wonderful after sale service

 

What else do you need?

 

Perfect,  Les

 

 

Hello there!

 

Couldn’t be more pleased here with the operations on this amazing mixer.

The equipment is doing everything promised and it is working along with computer software.

The sound is perfect and all functions are coming handy and effective.

100% happy with the purchase.

I’m attaching some pics taken at the studio in case you want to publish them as part of your customer’s pictures in your web site.

 

Cheers from Spain!

“I have used the Airmate Mixer in 6 radio Stations in

Rural Zambia for the past 5 years without any problems.

Not only is it a workhorse but it is also user friendly.

Quite affordable but has everything you will need in a Mixer.

No wonder it is NO. 1 recommendation to all broadcasters.

Its brilliant & durable”

I just wanted to say what a great design the Airmate USB is.

 

Yesterday (23 October 2019) I hole mug of tea was tipped over the Airmate USB (despite my constantly telling the presenters no fluids in the studio).

 

I could see my poor Airmate under a mass of water. The power was immediately cut and the device was lifted to drain.

 

I went and got my multi meter and proceeded to open the Airmate and due the the excellent design, very little fluid had managed to get to the circuit boards. The only water ingress was in the Internal mike and slider recess but as the Sliders are away from the circuit boards all the fluid just passed straight through. After drying out the Power Supply and checking for the correct voltages I striped the device down to the last nut and bolt and inspected every board washing all the contacts with Isopropl Alcohol and dried with a Hair Drier. On reassembly The only issue was one of the 10 Sliders needed cleaning so this was stripped and wiped.

 

Everything is working great and back in the studio. It looks a lot cleaner now....

 

Well Done for a great design and a modular system that allows the ability to work through things when problems happen.

REMOTE (START / MIC-ON)

START Stereo jack connector to internal opto coupler 24volt/50mA max.) The opto coupler switches between tip and ring of the stereo jack (So tip is shorted to the ring).

MIC ON Stereo jack connector to internal opto coupler(24volt/50mA max.)

The opto coupler switches between tip and ring of the stereo jack (So tip is shorted to the ring)

If you want to connect the remote jack to a computer, with the opto couplers and the computer has no parallel port or that port is used by another device?

You can use USB but you have to develop specific code for an USB enabled microcontroller, going through hundreds of pages of documentation, getting the necessary development system, and finally having to develop a driver for the thing. Using USB to serial adapters is not a good option either, since the adapters don't have much intelligence and require a lot of programming.

We from D&R think there is a better option, the I/O Warrior from Code Mercenaries, please go to their website and find the right interface for your application.
