Arrakis Systems has been building audio consoles for radio since the late 1970's. Over 5,000 Arrakis consoles have been sold during that time and Arrakis remains a leader in radio console technology today with both analog and digital console products.

Arrakis consoles are sold worldwide and are found in Europe, Russia, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Africa, Canada, and Central & South America. The United States Army, Navy and Air Force use Arrakis consoles in all parts of the world. Arrakis consoles are well know for their features, flexibility, reliability, and cost effectiveness.

With the introduction of the ARC (Advanced Radio Console) series in 2007 and MARC modular consoles in 2008, Arrakis built PC sound card capabilities directly into the console, blending console and PC media capabilities for added features. This allows the console to directly control the world standard Arrakis Digilink radio automation workstations as well as operate directly with Windows or Mac audio software.

 


ARC-8 Console ... low cost analog audio console
...the Radio World "Cool Stuff" Award
The ARC-8 won this prestigious award at the 2010 NAB convention in Las Vegas. Radio World’s “Cool Stuff” Award-winning products are selected each year by a panel of radio broadcast engineers as notable for their design, features, cost efficiency and performance in serving radio broadcast users.



With a single stereo mixing bus, the ARC-8 is ideal for fast paced live on air, production, and remote applications. Two mics supports a host and guest talk format. The mix minus bus (for an external hybrid) supports Telephone talk formats or call ins. The ‘Talk’ button on mic channel one feeds the mic to the caller and the caller to the console cue system... fast and easy! The ARC-8 even has a built in PC USB sound card on channel 8B to play in digital directly from your favorite PC audio software. At the same time, the Program output from the console records in digital over the USB directly to your PC recording software. Arrakis even provides ‘Digilink-Xtreme’ software with the system to get you on air & doing production immediately. The ARC-8 is also easy to install with BOTH professional balanced and consumer unbalanced input & output jacks. The ARC-8 is ideal for any on air or production radio application !
