With the Webstation you can now own a modern broadcast mixer for a very attractive price. This new and handbuild piece of precision equipment is build around proven low noise circuitry. It is an intelligent mixer with an internal USB control section that comfortably enhances daily use and even has a built in silence detector. It is a reliable workhorse for the self-op production D.J. There is a built in Telephone VoIP functionality, 3 in/out channels of stereo USB and 2 very low noise Mic inputs. The WEBSTATION is ideal for ON-AIR, Production work and perfect for streaming to the web.
The WEBSTATION accepts and instantly controls a maximum of 3 in/out stereo channels from your Play-out software. It is built into a heavy duty metal RF shielded chassis. Easily “drops” into your furniture to give that exciting radio look. Build with a strong powder coated front panel for durability and it is the result of more than 47 years of experience at D&R.
MIC, LINE, USB and Internal VoIP.
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 can be connected 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 and also includes all data from the control section and the software meter application.
The VoIP Channel 6 is at the same time 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. High quality low noise mic inputs with built in low cut filters and software switchable phantom powering in board.
Straight Forward Master Section
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 personal settings can be stored(write) and loaded (read).
See how in the the configuration manager shown below.
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 AIRCAST software.
A very low noise mic input, followed by a 2 band equalizer, drives a smooth running fader controlling a stereo VCA. The faderstart 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.
Every Webstation 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 controls a high quality stereo VCA.
If you run a classic station with CD players, the USB input can be also set to accept stereo line signals.
The CUE is also a communication bus
that allows callers on the VoIP channel to listen to the music and DJ when its CUE is activated without being on-air.
There are three USB stereo in- and outputs available on the Webstation.
The inputs are internally routed to channel 3 to 5 where the USB input of channel three is also routed to the Non-Stop switch when activated.
So your station never sleeps even if you are sleeping.
The USB outputs, seen as inputs on your PC, are connected to the Program output and Voice track bus.
Channel 6 of the Webstation mixer is a dedicated Voice Over Internet Protocol channel. (VoIP).
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 call 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 telephone hybrid, we have added an extra cleanfeed output on the back of the console to feed an external hybrid and return the signal into 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 broadcast ON-AIR with your callers.
USB Control Section
In the control SECTION of the Webstation mixer you see 12 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 also possible.
The USB control software, included as part of the package, can be easily programmed to make radio even more exciting.
Any switch can perform a function of your play-out software that you decide to control.
Master controls can be found in the master section for Phones and CRM.
When activating the Auto Cue for CRM any selected CUE can be heard.
As soon as the DJ mic opens, the CRM mutes to avoid feedback but only if CRM auto
Cue (auto deactivate) is set to ON.
The NON-STOP switch instantly routes the first USB stereo signal (channel 3) to the master outputs which makes the mixer available for (pre) production again.
Power Supply and more
The Webstation is powered by an internal heavy duty switched mode power supply that accepts AC voltages between 90 volt and 264 volts and has a standard Euroconnector with fuse on the back of the frame.
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.
The Webstation sends out control signals over USB, based on the HID protocol.
This also means that the master output signals can be displayed on a TFT screen (not supplied) in a beautiful meter application.
Program and CRM stereo signals are shown on a high resolution Peak Program Meter
On the right side of this screen you see the status of various console functions.
Indicators such as NON-STOP mode, Silence detection,
Mic-On and CRM mute.
Channel status and input selection is displayed at the
bottom of the TFT screen (not supplied).
At the same time this software application shows you a professional looking Radio clock that is synchronized with your local PC and an NTP time server.
