Harmony Sound Card
With APEX Hard Disk plan.
$100/mo or $2,699
With the APEX Hard Disk automation plan, the Harmony Quad Sound card comes standard, at no extra cost. This extremely powerful sound card gives you audiophile professional sound that will set your station apart from the rest. Instead of dropping thousands on a 3rd party proprietary sound card, or use a low quality on-board PC sound card, you can now use the Harmony Sound Card.
It is rack mountable, and has RJ45 inputs and outputs on the back, with 1/4" stereo outputs on the front.
4 Audio Output - 1 Audio Input.
Connect the Harmony Sound Card 4 outputs to your console. This gives you 3 outputs to assign to 3 different faders on your board. By which you can manually fade a song, bring up a music bed underneath your voice track, and then volume up the next song on your console. Giving you that extra flexibility that many DJ's demand.
The 4th output is designated as your Cue output to audition audio files on the fly.
The 1 input allows you to connect any incoming audio source. This input can be used for manual recordings.
There is also a sum audio input, that plays out Output 1, which is used for playing an outside audio feed live.

The Bridge Switcher has 16 audio inputs, 2 audio outputs and logic inputs/outputs.
The logic connectors can be programmed to either run as inputs, or outputs.
Timed or Manual Records.
Utilizing the Bridge Switcher with your APEX automation, you can setup Timed Records, or record any of your audio inputs manually. This is especially useful for recording for later playback. For example, you have a news broadcast at the top of the hour, but want it to play at the bottom. Simply program within APEX, and it will record your news broadcast and automatically update and play your news at the bottom of the hour.
Ball Games and Remotes.
With the Bridge Switcher, you have the ability to play most ball games. Whether it is Pro, College or Local sports. You can start commercial breaks, play liners and ID's, rain delay, return to game and end game commands.
Let your staff take the night off and enjoy the game instead of being the designated board op.
You can also send closures using 3rd party hardware to trigger these commands, and control from anywhere in the world.
