 Introduction 
The AXUM VERSION 3.0 is a modular completely preprogrammed platform that can grow with you and your organization any time, any moment. I/O cards can be shared between systems and a Broadcast station that has decided to use the AXUM as their main and support mixers can be sure to have invested in a future proof product. The Axum can be used for small local 4 fader desktop use as well as large scale (128 faders max) production work and everything in between. A large matrix of 1280x1280 with extensive signal processing on a maximum of 128 stereo channels is available that can be assigned to Sixteen stereo summing mixing busses and sixteen monitor buses as well as directly between the maximum of 4 DSP's.
 
Imagine a console where you can decide yourself what a switch/encoder or fader will do for you. Not possible? With the AXUM this is possible and... you can do that yourself by selecting a function out of hundreds of functions simply selectable from a database in your AXUM browser. Two control surfaces (with their own CRM sections) in different studios sharing the same I/O rack is also no problem for the AXUM platform. Hardware purchasing choices are straightforward: Rack ONE accepts a maximum of 21 I/O single slot cards. Rack TWO accepts a maximum of 37 I/O single slot cards. A Control Surface Frame starts with 4 faders as a minimum and can be extended to a maximum of 128 motorized faders plus Control/CRM section. Each individual Control Surface Frame can be mounted drop through in a work surface left or right of your script space. 
 
Interfacing with studio equipment is with high quality low cost readily available STP cable, also called shielded STP Ethernet cable, see breakout boxes below to choose from. An internally generated webpage allows you to remotely control all settings from anywhere in the world over Ethernet and /or Internet. The MambaNet protocol controls the communication between all system parts linked to each other with world standard Ethernet. It gives such an enormous freedom in system solutions so we hardly can imagine that your needs can not be met with the AXUM. A software Meter application is included and runs directly from the Control Surface, but also from any PC in the network. Also hardware meters can be connected in the network anywhere, thanks to the MambaNet protocol. AXUM live assist on Youtube

In / output connectors  The huge amount of in- and outputs per card could not be designed with a dedicated (jack/Cinch/XLR connector in the space available on the front of the card. By using standard STP cables in every input and output module a compact and neat cabling can be achieved. Due to standardization, changes in wiring can be achieved very easily without the need for soldering.  These low cost Cat-5 cables are ready made available from us or from your nearest computer store starting at lengths of 30cm up to 20 meters.

The switches on the channel-strip are software assignable to a function. For instance the ‘ON’ Switch can be above or below the fader. Any Control surface switch can do anything you want it to do, but… to not confuse you we have programmed a factory default assignment that represents the working procedures of the average Radio Studio to start with. Switches have long life dual color LED’s. So every active function is clearly shown. The basic desktop frames are built to use as a drop through frame in a furniture surface. They can accept 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 pcs of 4 faders sections, or 2,3,4,5 pcs of 4 fader sections and 1 CRM/STUDIO section plus master blind. With two frames (script space in the middle) you can have a maximum of 48 faders with a CRM/STUDIO section. If more faders are needed larger frame sizes are available upon request to achieve the maximum of 128 fader controllable stereo channels this design can handle. Fader Drop Through Section

AXUM METERING
 2 Phase meters on surface-screen 6 PPM meters on surface-screen 32 small PPM meters on surface-screen Broadcast clock Extra label fields Red-light Studio 1-4 visible Phone active detection Cable disconnect detection Channel processing visible on screen Planning your studio 
When planning your studio, there are maybe some things you need to also think about concerning the amount of in and outputs you need. A maximum of 4 control surfaces (mixers) can be connected to the RACK-ONE or RACK-TWO. THis can also be virtual mixer by way of the Remote application. You need to consider how many processing channel you want (32 processing channels per DSP card, 4 max). Also the number of busses per DSP card needs to be considered, there are 16 stereo mixing busses per DSP card that can be used for Program buss, Cue buss, Aux busses etc. 
 
Additional there are 4 stereo monitor busses available per DSP card. To have more control surfaces in different rooms hooked up to one Rack is an economical way of building a networked studio. But for redundancy and maintenance it is more wise to be able to switch between 2 complete systems. The FireWire card with 16 stereo in and outputs can only be used for 1 PC each.
 
INPUTS: * External (from Air, TV, Post processing, Tuner, etc. * From Effect (reverb) * DJ Set, Non stop, News, On Location set * Laptop Studio OUTPUTS * Reverb * Extra Loudspeakers * Talkback outputs * Recording analog * On-Air loggingJust some thoughts to consider.
