AS-6 AUDIO SEQUENCER
The AS-6 unit will automatically select and route any one of up to six incoming stereo analog or AES digital audio input sources by selected priority and signal validity. The level of the input source priority is determined by which AS-6 unit audio input the associated program audio signal is connected to. Input number one has the highest priority and input number six has the lowest. An audio input signal will not be considered valid unless the signal consists of both a left and a right channel, and has been input to the AS-6 unit for at least (3) seconds. All audio signal input and output selection, routing, and transfer is performed by sealed, plug-in gold-plated reed relays.
Analog or digital input modes are selected by installing the appropriate input module board, allowing the input mode of the unit to be easily changed or rearranged at any time, should needs change. Two input module boards are initially included in the AS-6 base price.
The AS-6 unit will also allow for the automatic starting and stopping of “on-demand” audio sources, such as dial-up remote control units, CD players, or other remote-controlled sources of program audio
The circuits to allow this function are located on plug-in modules, permitting operation on as many of the audio inputs as may be desired. Front panel dip switches program the “on-demand” functions for either “on” or “off” mode, and for either “continuous” or “momentary” control relay contact closures.
The AS-6 unit also provides full time output of the selected right and left channel analog and simultaneous output of the selected AES-3 and AES-3ID digital program feeds, regardless of what type of audio signal is input to the unit. You will always have stereo analog output for analog transmitters and AES digital output for digital transmitters, simultaneously.
A complete audio monitoring system is provided, allowing any one of up to eight incoming stereo analog or up to six incoming AES digital audio program signals to be auditioned with a built in headphone amplifier and a dedicated stereo analog external monitor output port.
