The ARC-10BP broadcast console can handle most On Air Radio and Radio Production studio applications, supporting balanced pro sources as well as interface with Windows-based production software. Channels One and Two are high-performance mic channels for on-air talent with a guest. Channel ten is an advanced telephone interface to an external hybrid for Live callers or an Off-line contest call. Seven line input channels (six of which are balanced) easily handle the other audio sources, such as CD players, found in most studios. Channel nine sports a Windows PC USB interface for use with Live On-Air, Automation and Production software. Most Windows compatible audio programs can then play through channel nine on the console and record from the console Audition bus. It also boasts long life faders, electronic switching of all audio signal paths and an attractive yet rugged design.
The ARC10-BP is designed for applications where balanced professional source equipment will be used. The only difference between this model and the ARC-10UP is that input channels 3-8 are stereo balanced inputs. Eight wire RJ-45 connectors are used for the balanced audio connectors.
The USB PC interface on channel 9 is included standard as on the ARC-10UP. If the console is to be used without a PC, internal jumpers allow channel 9 to be reassigned as an unbalanced, stereo, RCA phono input channel.
Arrakis also has ARC-10 models with unbalanced inputs.
