AIRAURA X5

FM peak control technology that reconstructs the audio after the application of pre-emphasis. X5 also leads the way with Unified Processing®, which allows the processor to share information between ALL stages. In the X5, the iAGC, Dynamics and Limitless Clipper work together no matter which control a user adjusts. Changes are made automatically, in real time, in ways never envisioned before.

The X5 also includes a totally redesigned limiter. Additionally, X5 offers a full suite of static and dynamic RDS features along with with multi-stream UECP support. The X5 adds a number of other state of the art features, including LIVE LOGGER which documents everything from remote logins to audio failover to preset changes. Wheatstone’s popular HD/FM audio alignment makes the jump to the X5 with our FM&HD LIVELOCK. Additionally, you can now keep the processor at the studio and still keep HD and FM audio in perfect alignment to the transmitter with our optional MPX SYNC-LINK receiver. X5 also offers built-in watermark encoding for the Kantar Media ratings measurement system.

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!

AIRAURA X1

The new AirAura X1 is the first processor in the midrange price category granting access to advanced processing features via an easy-to-use interface. Intuitive adjustments made via the front panel touchscreen interface result in automatic and intelligent adjustments of behind-the-scenes processing parameters to create the sound the user desires. 

A library of expertly created factory presets always keeps users in safe territory, while an advanced professional GUI allows experienced “golden ears” to delve deeper to refine the sound. Bring new features and new technology into a mid-priced audio processor for FM and HD stations while keeping the price just right.


Aura8-IP BLADE-3
Eight processors wherever you need them.

AURA8-IP BLADE 3

With a single Aura8-IP-3, you can have up to eight processors to use as you wish. Use it as a standalone processor with analog and digital inputs or make it a part of your WheatNet-IP network. Either way, the Aura8-IP-3 is a powerhouse.

The Aura8-IP-3 occupies a single rack space, but packs an impressive complement of eight fully independent multi-band stereo audio processors. Each is deployable anywhere on the network through WheatNet-IP and offers full AGC, EQ, compression and limiting functions for HD, streaming, podcasting – up to eight separate stereo applications – in one unit.

FM-55/FM-55e

Our FM-55 FM audio processor with stereo generator is simple and affordable, yet powerfully modern – right down to its AES digital multiplex into the exciter.

Unique among processors, the FM-55 includes new intelligent five-band AGC technology — or iAGC — coupled to a five-band limiter and stereo generator. The combination provides automatic and superior real-time program density control for a consistent, spectrally-balanced sound regardless of density variations in incoming source material.

Other features of the FM-55 include our five-band stereo enhancement and program adaptive L-R control for multipath mitigation. 

The FM-55 fully supports the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, and is equipped with two analog composite outputs, two SCA inputs, balanced analog Left/Right outputs and an AES digital output which may be switched to deliver either discrete Left/Right or baseband192 digital multiplex signal. Input audio may be delivered via analog, AES or WheatNet-IP.

FM-25

FM-25 is a multi-band audio processor ideal for LPFM or other FM stations requiring basic spectral audio shaping and peak limiting control.

The FM-25 includes new intelligent two-band AGC technology — or iAGC — coupled to a multiband limiter and stereo generator. The combination provides automatic, real-time program density control for a consistent, spectrally-balanced sound regardless of density variations in incoming source material.

Other features of the FM-25 include stereo enhancement and program adaptive L-R control for multipath mitigation. The composite output signal is available as traditional analog via twin rear panel BNC connectors and simultaneously as Wheatstone’s baseband192 digital multiplex technology.

The FM-25 fully supports the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, and is equipped with two analog composite outputs, an SCA input, balanced analog Left/Right outputs and an AES digital output which may be switched to deliver either discrete Left/Right or baseband192 digital multiplex signal. Input audio with automatic source failover may be delivered via analog, AES and WheatNet-IP.

AM-55

The AM-55 stands out from all other AM processors due to its intelligent five-band AGC technology — or iAGC — coupled to a five-band limiter. The combination provides automatic and superior real-time program density control for a consistent, spectrally-balanced sound regardless of density variations in incoming source material. Other features of the AM-55 include effective bass management, IP network interface and a powerful GUI interface. 

The AM-55 accepts analog and digital sources, and automatically switches sources upon loss of the primary signal. A phase rotator assures that voice is as loud and clean as possible when processed. 

This processor interfaces to the WheatNet-IP Intelligent Network, making it possible for broadcasters to stream its audio to and from anywhere in the IP audio network. Like its cousin the FM-55 audio processor, the AM-55 is smartly designed with a front panel OLED display, Guru GUI navigation and headphone jack — as well as the incredible sound and build quality that the industry has come to expect of a Wheatstone audio processor.
