I got a bit of an education when I stopped at the Allen and Heath stand. Of course, I knew that broadcast desks existed, but not really what their unique capabillities were. The new XB14 broadcast desk is packed with features that enable a single operator, or a dedicated producer to run a small radio show or live podcast/broadcast. The Telco channels can take incoming phone calls wth a clean feed (CLF) output - that's mix minus caller for feedback elimination (see, I told you I'd learned something). The desk also outputs a number of control signals via 15-way D-Type connector for the cueing of CD players and ON AIR lights, monitoring muting etc etc.

As well as multiple, switchable, stereo sources, there's a USB I/O for integration with a computer as sound source and or recording device.

Well worth a look if your into the world of broadcast or podcasting.

The XB14 is available now at £824 +VAT
