The 15 channels with up to 30 source inputs meets even the largest studio’s needs.
Three output buses easily handles on air, background production, and a third mix for the most complex shows. The mainframe supports up to 2 phone modules for two simultaneous callers. The console even features a PC-USB input module so that the console can play from and record to a Windows PC in digital. The optional Studio Monitor module facilitates Control room-Talk studio applications. Also, installation is fast and easy with the attractive low profile tabletop design and the RJ45 terminated cables that come included with the console. The engineer only need terminate the other end of the cable for the specific source device. Prewired cables are an expensive option for competing products. The MARC console is even plugin compatible with Arrakis AARC-NET digital audio networking so that your studios can be connected with only a single CAT-5 network cable. With more than 30 years experience in the design and manufacture of radio consoles, the MARC-15 from Arrakis has the features, performance, and reliability that is required for professional radio applications.
The MARC-15 is available in a single 15 channel mainframe. The mainframe is a fully enclosed steel cabinet with a rear hinging meter panel. The power supply is an external, autosensing 110-220VAC module. The meter panel contains meters for all three buses, a digital timer, and a built in cue/talkback speaker.
The modular mainframe allows the console to be configured for exactly the number of mics and stereo sources that you need. Being modular it can easily be reconfigured as those needs change. If not all of the 15 input module positions are initially filled, then there is room for expansion at a later date. Modularity is also an advantage if service is required. Spare modules can even be purchased as backups so that repair is immediate.
The ‘Output module comes standard with the console. The 8, 12, and 15 channel base models can then be configured with any combination of input modules that you choose. There can be a maximum of one PC USB module, two Phone modules, and one Studio monitor module per mainframe. Any number of mic or stereo line modules can be added until the 15 open modules in the mainframe are full.
