Wheatstone introduced at this week’s NAB show a new multi-band audio processor ideal for LPFM or other FM stations requiring basic spectral audio shaping and peak limiting control.
The new 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. Similar to the FM-55 audio processor, the FM-25 is smartly designed with a front panel OLED display, Guru GUI navigation and headphone jack on the front panel — as well as the incredible sound and build quality that the industry has come to expect of a Wheatstone audio processor.
The FM-25 represents a true value for the LPFM broadcaster, and can be packaged with an Audioarts Air-1, Air-4 or new 08 mixer for on-air, production and processing at an affordable price.
