Radio Broadcast Mixer

The compact XB-10 Radio Broadcast Mixer from Allen & Heath is well-suited for small radio or internet broadcast studios, college, and university radio stations, podcasting, content creation, and more.

Despite its tiny footprint, the XB-10 is packed with many specialized broadcast features. Radio-friendly tools include a telephone communication (telco) channel, mic channel ON switch sensing, stereo channel start/cue outputs for CD deck transport control, and automatic muting of speaker outputs. A separate monitor mix can be created for operator and guest or presenter, and the operator can speak off-air to the studio or telephone callers using the Talk feature.

This radio broadcast mixer's preamps use low-noise discrete transistor circuitry to achieve high gain and good linearity. Each mic channel is equipped the CompACT compressor to keep the dynamic range of a presenter microphone under control. CompACT (Adaptive Compression Technology) is a program-dependent audio leveler. It combines both downward and upward compression with peak limiting. Low-level signals are given a gain boost, mid-level signals are mildly compressed with a soft knee response, and high-level signals are limited.

A variable limiter on the main output ensures that the level does not exceed a pre-defined level so the final mix to air does not saturate expensive broadcast equipment. Back panel option switches allow the limiter to be bypassed. A trim pot is used to vary the threshold and an LED on the front panel indicates when the limiter has triggered.

The plug-n-play USB connection can be used for VoIP telephone calls, recording program material, playing jingles, and more.
