Audioarts Lightning combines the best in a standalone console with the latest in modern conveniences such as USB and Bluetooth® connectivity.

Lightning comes in 12- or 16-channel tabletop configurations and has a modular design with four channel input panels, and a Master/Monitor panel with linear faders for headphone and control room level control. All faders are conductive plastic and all switches are LED illuminated. Input channels have A/B source selection, with balanced line in for the A source and trimmable -10 to +4 line in on B. Standard features include four stereo program busses, two auto mix-minuses for call-ins, four mic preamps with variable gain trim and switchable +48V phantom power, plus built-in headphone jack and CUE speaker amplifiers. Additional four channel mic preamp cards can be fitted if needed.

Lightning is designed for studios that have mostly microphone or analog source inputs, and where a lot of studio routing isn’t required. It doesn’t have the extensive A/D, D/A conversions of a typical digital board, yet you have access to editing software, Skype or other external sources through USB and Bluetooth.

USB and Bluetooth onboard connectivity is useful for playing audio directly from a PC or to output audio to edit in VoxPro or other recording software, as well as receive and record calls from Bluetooth enabled cellphones or play cuts from MP3 players.

The console also contains a patchable AES input for connecting a digital source to any fader, and built-in A/D conversion for the main program output so operators can access the Program Air feed as balanced analog, AES3 digital, or both simultaneously.

While it looks and feels like its Wheatstone cousins, this digitally-enabled analog console operates as a full standalone board.

Cue thunderous applause.

Clean and proper power is key to the great performance you’ve come to expect from Audioarts. It would be easy to just purchase over-the-counter power supplies for our Lightning console. But we don’t. In order to maintain our high level of quality we’ve designed and built a dedicated separate rackmount supply - our SPS-202.
