Audessence ALPS-3 Digital Leveller

Taking control to the next level, the ALPS-3 broadcast audio processor features full remote-control via both GPI and Internet (IP). For situations where audio parameters need to be changed on a regular basis, fully-flexible scheduling software is provided. All processing parameters can be remotely altered by automation systems to reflect changes in broadcast content. Perceived loudness, dynamic range and peak levelsuitable for all situations where some combination of these three must be powerfully yet unobtrusively controlled.

Benefits:
Brings consistency to all programme streams without erasing musical dynamics
Ends listener annoyance from over-loud segments such as commercials and shouting DJs.
Improves audibility and clarity of programme
Eliminates overload distortion and damage forever.
Eliminates the inconvenience of unauthorised tampering with front-panel controls.
Maintains programme path reliability - fail- safe mode.

Applications:
Sound level control for Radio and Television
Normalise levels of news booths and unattended studios, ingest points, etc.
Overload protection for STLs, digital codecs, PA and monitors
FM broadcast: Networks, Relay from satellite, Community Radio & RSLs.
Professional-level audio streaming, archiving and podcasting.

Features:
  • Minimal feature setvery cost-effective yet fully professional.
  • Excellent quality - 96kHz and 88.2kHz native modes avoid unnecessary ASRCs.
  • Complete programme reliability - 'pass- through' relays for analogue and digital paths.
  • Factory presets deliver exactly the results you need for any application ...fast.
  • Bright, Always-Visible LED bargraphs for audio confidence checks.
  • Low audio latency (2.2 - 4 milliseconds), fast boot-up (<1 second).
  • Stereo or Dual-Mono modes.
