MIC, LINE, USB and INTERNAL VOIP

The WEBSTATION’s modules can be easily tailored
to your own needs with the included software program page shown below.
All 6 modules have their own page, where you can program Cue reset enabled by Line, Mic, Fader, On etc. The Mic On busses (for your ON-AIR light) can be enabled by Line or Mic or USB.
A great feature is the ability to program your own switch colours, activate the CRM mute module and program the Studio Remote. Additionally if you want your Phantom power on or off individually programmable per channel this can also easily done.
All settings can be stored(write) and loaded (read), see the configuration manager below.
The WEBSTATION mixer has 2 balanced, phantom powered mic inputs with inserts for voice processors. Six stereo line inputs, 3x USB channels and 1x Telephone VOIP channel.
If you want to connect an analog phone line a Cleanfeed output is provided to connect to an external Hybrid.
Only one physical USB connection is the interface to transfer 3 stereo audio channels + VoIP signal from and to your PC plus all control data from the control section and the software meter
The VOIP Channel 6 is also routed to the main USB connector. Talk back to the VOIP channel is by pushing both "Mic CUE" and "VOIP CUE" to make conversation with callers very easy prior to broadcasting.
The Webstation has a very musical 2 band equalizer. All high quality low noise mic inputs have a built in low cut filters.
MIC LINE CHANNEL
The Webstation has an internal USB voice tracking bus that can be directly
routed to a play-out system with Voice tracking capabilities, such as our AIRCASTsoftware.
A very low noise mic input, followed by a 2 band equalizer, drives a smooth
running fader controlling a stereo VCA. The fader start is electronically detected by the control voltage generated
by the fader.
The Webstation can also be used for production while ON-AIR when it is put
into the NON-STOP mode.
The NON-STOP switch (located in the master section) routes the first USB
channel (3) directly to the main outputs. It does this automatically when the
internal silence detector detects silence.
The CUE switch is also a communication
system to easily talk to callers from outside.
The ON switch and the fader have “faderstart” capabilities if required.
Your personal settings for modules and master can stored in software.
The Webstation is designed for ON-AIR Internet radio production work in the studio or at home.
Channel 6 of the Webstation mixer is a dedicated Voice Over Internet Protocol
Simply set up a connection, for instance with SKYPE or any other provider that offers telephone services over the Internet.
It needs to be a service provider that allows you to use VoIP for your telephone connections.
A separate Gain control and VoIP send control let you adjust the send and return levels.
An incoming line can be picked up by the Conn button, pre-listened by the CUE switch and brought into your radioshow
by the ON switch and/or Fader.
If you want to use an Analog or digital Hybrid, we have added an extra cleanfeed output on the back of the console to feed an external Hybrid and return the signal in the line input of your VOIP channel with the input selector
selected to Line.
The DJ Mic can be routed to the caller outside the broadcast by activating the CUE switch in both Mic and VoIP input modules.
All in all a very convenient way to make life radio with your callers.
