    UR4 Studio Package

    Key Package Features:

    School Radio SRMv2 Broadcast Mixing Desk

    The SRMv2 is a nine channel broadcast mixing desk designed by us specifically for use in our School Radio packages. Rather than re-badging an existing broadcast mixer, we wanted to design a mixer that offered powerful features and a user friendly interface suitable for use in primary and secondary schools. Once we designed the way the mixer should look and act, we partnered with the UK's leading broadcast technology manufacturer (Sonifex) to exclusively produce SRM mixers which you will only find in our School Radio packages. Sonifex liked there SRM so much they now produce the S0 which is a close cousin but the S0 does not offer the same rich, interactive features that you will find on the SRM.

    • 9 Channel Dual Input Mixer (4 mic inputs, 13 stereo inputs)
    • Built in telephone & Skype interface for telephone interviews etc*
    • Intelligent interaction with Myriad software
    • Level limited headphone output
    • Designed by us exclusively for School Radio
    • Built by Sonifex Ltd at their state of the art, UK factory.

    * Requires analogue telephone line
