Audio Gear for Low Power FM
Audioarts Engineering is where it all began for Wheatstone. Today, the brand is the most widely used, widely recognized in the world for broadcast audio consoles.
Our range of products starts with the AIR-1 USB - a true broadcast audio console with everything you need for your Low-Power FM station. Our AIR-4 is a step up in channels and features and gives you tremendous bang for your buck.
Of course, you'll want to sound your best, so we'd recommend a couple of our proven Wheatstone Vorsis processors: the M-1 Voice Processor is one of the most popular ever and can be tailored to give your voice exactly what you want to hear. Also, we recommend the FM-55 audio processor for your overall signal to give you sound that's loud and clear; a truly professional FM sound.
Inside, there are tips like: What type of mics should you get? What about source gear? Headphones? The console?
It's all right here in Wheatstone's LPFM equipment guide.

M4-IP USB 4-CHANNEL VOICE/MIC AUDIO PROCESSOR
The M4IP-USB is a four-channel DSP-based BLADE-3 voice processor with four completely independent channels of high-quality, low-noise, high-dynamic range and accurate transient response voice processing in an IP networked rack unit.
The M4IP-USB combines four high-quality microphone preamps, four channels of Vorsis embedded microphone processing, and a WheatNet-IP BLADE interface, allowing you to place four microphone inputs anywhere in your WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network (although it also works just fine as a standalone processor). The preamps and processors are accessed and controlled from any point on the network via its Windows-based GUI.
Four independent USB ports are built in to facilitate the individual use of each processor output by separate computers.
The M4IP-USB is a great way to maximize your investment in on-air talent by combining four mic processors into a single rack space, accessible from anywhere.
