AIRAURA X3

The AirAuraX3 spectral audio processor for FM is equipped with processing technologies that simply didn’t exist until now, starting with a new final clipper that creates extremely competitive loudness while also minimizing listener fatigue. Another new technology unique to our third-generation AirAura helps extend perceived stereo coverage, and yet another technology helps hide the annoying coding artifacts that might be present in a station’s stereo source material. AirAuraX3’s incredible dial presence, its three selectable stereo multiplex modulation methods, its ability to help mask coding artifacts, its mitigation of many stereo multipath annoyances as well as its exclusive clipper technology, make it THE processor for on-air FM. 

AirAuraX3 accepts audio feeds from three different kinds of sources: Analog, AES3, or WheatNet-IP. AirAuraX3 is WheatNet-IP aware and can be controlled in the same manner as any WheatNet-IP BLADE. Each AirAura input may be configured for automatic failover in the event of an unplanned audio outage. Specialized analysis functions exclusive to Vorsis offer an astonishing overview of input or processed audio. And for ultimate flexibility, AirAura gives you remote processor control via wired Ethernet or integrated WiFi connectivity.

Of course, your music still has that AirAura sound that keeps happy listeners calling with compliments. Add a host of fresh factory presets that take advantage of all the new technology and you’ve got the best processor in ANY market!
