Symetrix Airtools Voice Processor 2x
Symetrix has announced the AirTools Voice Processor 2x, featuring two independent channels of low latency digital signal processing that are customizable from a computer software program.
The Voice Processor 2x occupies one rack space and interconnects with the rest of the studio via two mic/line analog inputs, two mic/line analog outputs, two AES digital outputs, and a word clock input. Available processing includes compression, equalization, de-essing, downward expansion/gating, high-pass filtering, low-pass filtering, and voice symmetry.
The included Windows software application enables control of parameters and interfaces with the hardware unit via an Ethernet connection. Once a desired sound is dialed in, settings can be saved as named presets for later recall, allowing a given studio mic to be optimized for a diverse air staff of male and female voices. Presets may be recalled with convenient front panel controls, optional hardware remote(s), or a third-party control protocol.
