Mic Line Input Channel
The AIRLITE has an internal USB voice tracking bus that can be directly routed to a play-out system with Voice tracking capabilities, such as our AIRCAST software.
A very low noise mic input, followed by a musical equalizer, drives a smooth running fader that controls a stereo VCA.
As a result noisy faders will never happen in this design. Also the fader start is electronically detected by the control voltage generated by the fader.
The AIRLITE can also be used for production while ON-AIR when it is put into the NON-STOP mode.
This Non-Stop switch (located in the master section) routes the first USB channel directly to the main outputs. It does this also automatically when the internal silence detector detects silence (parameters can be set in the software).
The CUE switch is also a communication system to easily talk to callers outside the broadcast.
The ON switch and also the fader have “fader start” possibilities when needed.
A software configuration manager is part of the delivery to configure your personal settings for modules and master.
The AIRLITE is designed for ON-AIR Internet radio production work in the studio or at home.
Every AIRLITE USB Channel can accept a stereo source from a play-out system such as our AIRCAST.
Levels can be set by the gain control. Pre listening can be done by the CUE switch and the ON switch can activate tracks of the Play-out system.
This can also be done by “faderstart”. The fader is controlling a high quality stereo VCA.
In case you run a classic station with CD players, the USB input can be switched to stereo line.
The CUE is also a communication bus that allows callers on the VoIP channel to listen to the music and DJ without being on-air.
There are four USB stereo in- and outputs available on the Airlite.
The inputs are internally routed to channel 4 to 7 where the USB input of channel four is also routed to the Non-Stop switch.
The USB outputs, seen as inputs on your PC, are connected to the Program output, Aux send, Voice track and Air-in.
The Air-In input can be connected to your external processing unit and in this way you can stream your processed signal directly to the Internet without the use of an extra sound card.

Channel 8 of the AIRLITE mixer is a dedicated Voice Over Internet Protocol channel. (VoIP).
Simply plug the dedicated VoIP USB cable from the mixer to your PC and set up a connection, for instance with SKYPE or any other provider that offers telephone services over the Internet such as http://www.counterpath.com/bria/.
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’s you adjust the send and return levels.
An incoming line (visible on screen) can be pick up by the blinking 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 Hybrid, we have added an extra cleanfeed output on the back of the console to feed an external Hybrid and you can return the signal in the VOIP channel with the input selector selected to Line.
The internal built in Electret Talkback microphone can be routed to the caller outside the broadcast by activating the TB to VoIP switch in the master section.
Or you can use your DJ mike by activating the CUE switches in both the DJ channel and the Telco channel.
USB control section
On the right side of the AIRLITE mixer you see 16 illuminated (green/red) switches.
These switches can be used to control functions in your Radio Automation software such as starting jingles.
Recording a voice track while ON-AIR is one of the possibilities. The USB control software, that is part of the package, can be easily programmed by yourself, to make radio even more exciting. Just hold a CUE switch for 3 seconds and the mixer goes into VOICE TRACKING MODE. How easy!
Any switch can perform a function of your play-out software that you decide would be convenient to control.
Master controls can be found in the master section for Announcer, Phones and CRM.
When activating the Auto Cue for CRM and the Announcer, any selected CUE can be heard.
As soon as the DJ mic opens the CRM mutes of course to avoid feedback but only if CRM auto Cue (auto deactivate) is ON.
TALK BACK to all important outputs is directly accessible on the right hand side.
The NON STOP switch instantly routes the first USB stereo signal (channel 4) to the main outputs which makes the mixer available for (pre)production again.
The master section has various options to fine trim the mixer to your needs. On the left you see the software pages that can be loaded and give you an overview of its possibilities.
There are settings that adjust the Silence Detection with parameters for Threshold, Interval time and the source.
There is also a section to invert the GPO 1 and GPO 2 triggering outputs and its various states. On other software pages you can program the switch colours you personally like.
Also the CUE bus can be set to behave interlocking, which means that when you select another CUE the earlier selected one automatically switches off.
The AIRLITE sends out control signals over USB, based on the HID protocol. This also means that the main output signals can be displayed on a TFT screen in a beautiful meter application.
Program and CRM stereo signals are shown on a high resolution PPM.
On the right side you see the status of various console functions. Indicators such as ON-AIR 1 or 2, Non Stop mode, Silence detection, Mic-On and CRM mute. And also incoming calls will be shown.
Channel status and input selection is displayed at the bottom of the TFT screen (not included in the delivery).
At the same time this software application shows you a professional looking Radio clock that is synchronized with your local PC.
Power Supply and more
The AIRLITE is powered by an external heavy duty switched mode power supply that accepts AC voltages between 90 and 230 volts.
The control surface can be easily mounted inside furniture as a drop through unit.
All in and output connections are conveniently made on standard Jack / Cinch and XLR connectors.
Power supply input is a heavy duty 5 pin locking XLR connector.
Aircast installed and up and running. I'm re-fitting the ferry fm studio for it's 21st Birthday - Aircast and Airlite mixer was the perfect solution for their stations needs.
The functionality is immense! I will look forward to when I can afford your Aircast software so that I may add that versatility. Until then...
Thank you for a wonderful product,
I have to say at this point that the Airlite has been a sheer delight to set up and use in testing! It is an artful piece of engineering, and will function perfectly for us in that we have to bring relatively inexperienced operators up to speed quickly. This console has been a great confidence-builder!
I recently purchased the AIRLITE-USB + AIRCAST
I am very satisfied, a nice piece of equipment.
I received my AIRLITE USB. WOW! Great and I have a good look and play .
I am using RADIOLOGIC DJ with the Airlite on a mac. Having read the manual and watch the videos so many times before it arrived made setting up quite easy.
Everyone who has seen and used the Airlite USB is very impressed, as am I.
Well done. Brilliant!
I must say, the manual is very well written and easy to follow.
Thanks. All the best, Bob, USA
Just a quick note to let you know that the Airlite USB is working amazingly well.
We now have two and will be purchasing another two in the next couple of months as we are expanding - we are only using Airlite as our main on-air mixers.
Hello, I am currently using your Airlite USB mixer,
a fantastic piece of equipment that has massively helped us grow.

Thank you for taking the time to straighten out all of our Configuration issues with our Airlite yesterday morning. I know our start with TeleView was a bit tedious, and I appreciate your staying with us through that.
The Airlite seems to be working smoothly now, and we don't anticipate any further issues.
The board is a delight to use, and its simplicity and predictability make is very easy to train relatively inexperienced users to operate it.
Thanks to you and Duco for producing this great product.
Airlite, my home studio, mainly for testing (my) software, listening music, creating jingles, power intros & enjoying free time
As a daily user for my lunchbox live show on the world famous www.thevoiceofpeace.co.il - I endorse this amazing clutter free desk.
I recently received my D&R Airlite for my small studio in South Africa. The service, follow-up and delivery was outstanding. The D&R was easy to set-up and pairs beautifully with the Radiologik DJ play-out software I am using. This is truly an amazing mixer, especially for someone new to broadcasting, and it is a lot of fun to use, in addition to being beautifully manufactured!
Two BIG thumbs up!
