The second-generation Ariane Sequel features TransLanTech’s signature sum and difference processing and can also work in conventional left and right stereo with adjustable coupling between channels, as well as in dual channel mono mode.
It's the unique multiband, release gated, 'windowing' feed-forward RMS control that sets the Ariane in a class by itself.
All digital all the way through - not a hybrid analog/digital design.
Same great gain and stereo image control as the original Ariane Stereo Audio Leveler.
Three processing modes: sum and difference (matrix); independent two-channel; stereo-linked
Output peak protection limiting
Adjustable output sample rate: 32, 44.1 or 48kHz (or synch to input)
8 Savable user presets with contact closure remote activation
TCP/IP and RS-232 remote control
Expanded metering options: Peak and RMS reading on input and output
Analog and AES/EBU digital inputs and outputs
Software upgrade capability
Front panel headphone output
With units installed in broadcast stations throughout the world, the Ariane Sequel is also great as an IBOC/Streaming/Webcasting leveler for a more consistent, listenable sound. Use it on satellite or remote broadcast feeds, production, or mix finalizing. The Ariane Sequel is the heavy hitter of AGC levelers for Radio and Television. It makes things sound better!
