Full Description

*EX DEMO* AR3000SD Digital Audio Recorder with Prog Timer

The new AR-3000SD provides new advanced sound quality and features with expanded compatibility that includes programmable timers, network efficiency, support for multiple playback and control formats, plus support for high quality audio formats up to 24-bit and 96 kHz. A full range of features and high reliability make the AR-3000SD perfect for any site and application.

Support for 24-bit, 96-kHz audio achieves even higher sound quality for both recording and playback. Use of AES/EBU output connectors also enables high-quality digital output. XLR connectors have been added for audio output, enabling worry-free use in a wide array of applications.

For storage, in addition to Compact Flash memory, the AR-3000SD is also equipped with a slot for an SD memory card. Using a single memory card as two virtual cards lets you record up to 2,000 phrases. You can even back up and restore data using a USB flash drive.

In addition to uncompressed WAV, the MP3 format has been added for use in recording and playback. By accommodating a full range of formats without sacrificing compatibility, the AR-3000SD stands ready to meet a diverse array of needs and setups for use.

More about the AR-3000SD

A full range of flexible editing features

Editing operations are simple and intuitive. The AR-3000SD offers nondestructive editing features that allow for editing phrases just the way you want. These functions include Truncate for cutting unneeded portions before and after phrases, and Phrase Combine for joining multiple phrases into a single new one.

Displays the settings data and phrase information stored on the AR series unit's memory card on a single screen. Editing is accomplished with ease, using the mouse and keyboard. AR data on a memory card can be backed up to the computer and restored from it just as easily. Features a simple player that lets you check recorded audio. Lets you convert WAV files to AR phrase data (RDAC) and AR phrase data to WAV files. The software can be downloaded free of charge.

Built-in yearly programmable timer

In response to wide demand, a scheduler has become a standard feature, eliminating the need to connect an external timer. This allows control by time or calendar. Time adjustment using Network Time Protocol (NTP) client functionality is also possible, for precisely timed automation announcements at fixed intervals. Using just the AR-3000SD, you can create yearly programs for important announcements for tasks that must be played back at fixed intervals and set times.

The programmable timer feature can store in memory 14 days worth of single-day schedules containing 50 tasks each. This lets you do things like assign single-day schedules to different days of the week to create a weekly schedule, or assign them to specific months and days and create a yearly schedule.

Endless control and performance possibilities using MIDI and RS-232C

MIDI data can be played back and captured as well as playback of RS-232C commands. Using the AR-3000SD in combination with an external sound module or synthesizer, for instance, let's you reproduce performances that are direct, with total control. With direct playback of RS-232C commands the AR-3000SD can control V-Mixers, video switchers like the Roland V-800HD, and a host of other audio, video and lighting equipment. This along with MIDI control enables the AR-3000SD to be the nucleus of a full production environment.

Network features supporting higher efficiency come standard.

A LAN (local area network) port is standard and lets you achieve simple, efficient systems matched to individual setups. Web server functionality has been added enabling settings and control from a computer anywhere on the network. The unit also functions as a DHCP client which eliminates the trouble of obtaining and assigning IP addresses.

The Line Thru feature lets you mix in external audio during playback.

During audio-phrase playback, you can mix in audio from LINE IN and output the results. For instance, this lets you mix background music or other audio into in-store announcements. The volume level of audio input via LINE IN can also be adjusted independently, so you can even add fade-ins and fade-outs.
