The Audio Processor is a very important piece of equipment, as it is usually the last one you use before your audio is transmitted.

It improves and optimizes the sound quality or your Radio, thus giving it a unique sound with its own character.

You may choose between several mood sounds such as jazz, pop, rock, classical, etc... or even create your own sound.

Mainly designed for medium/small radios (local radio stations, community radios, web radios), the Audio Processor combines ease of use, flexibility and robustness.

It is a combination of a multiband compressor/limiter and a parametric equalizer together with other effects.
It compresses the overall dynamics of the program, but it is also possible to increase the volume, because it prevents against over-deviation, clipping and other saturations – all effects that create distortion.

The final result will be a “louder” and “bigger" sound for your radio.

There is a psychological reason behind it: when searching on the radio dial, people stop to listen at the radio that sounds louder, bigger and better – and this increases your audience.

Analog or Digital

Audio Processors can be analog or digital.

An Analog audio processor directly alters the electric signal coming from the transmitter, before this goes through the amplifier(s) and ultimately reaches the speakers that will then project it as audio waves.

A Digital processor, on the other hand, intervenes in the digital representation – a sequence of symbols, usually binary numbers – of the signal.

Choosing between these two options is merely a question of the type of broadcasting that is intended.
