Introducing The podMIXai, the big brother to our legendary podMIX

Whirlwind is happy to release the podMIXai, the perfect solution for combining a microphone with your favorite sound track!

The podMIXai is an active mixing device that combines a dynamic microphone with an unbalanced stereo audio source for connection to a single line level input of a sound system. Use it with CD and MP3 players, computer sound card outputs, DJ mixers, etc. along with a microphone in sports arenas, conference rooms, banquet halls, gymnasiums and party houses for paging or announcements over background music. The output is mono balanced line level.

FEATURES

The podMIXai is a small tabletop enclosure with a rugged, ergonomic design for ease of use and easy storage. A wall adapter power supply (PS12AC1A) is included which provides 12 VAC at 1 Amp.

Variable level controls on both the mic and music inputs allow level matching and mixing between the music source and the microphone. The mic input accepts dynamic microphones and can provide up to 60 dB of gain. The music input can boost the signal 20 dB.

On/Off switches for both the mic and music inputs allow convenient muting control of each signal. A bass cut switch is provided on the mic input which can reduce handling and wind noise.

The LED meter has yellow and red LEDs that confirm output level and a green LED indicates that the podMIXai has power . The yellow starts to illuminate when the output signal reaches -10 dB and the red starts at +10 dB and is fully on when the signal reaches +16 dB.

Music signals are input via a single 3.5mm (1/8”) stereo TRS jack which are summed to mono. The microphone input is a balanced female XLR jack and the output is via a balanced male XLR jack.

      The MultiSelector PRO

      The MultiSelector PRO is a state of the art unidirectional 4-to-1 instrument switcher incorporating innovative features sought after by touring professionals. The MultiSelector PRO allows selection of any 1 of 4 inputs to a single output. Each of the four inputs is electronically buffered with a 1 MegOhm input impedance which emulates a proper amplifier load and prevents any degradation to the instrument’s tone. Signals pass through the MultiSelector PRO transparently, with no coloration and the digitally controlled optical switching is completely silent. We’ve also included a Tuner output on the front and rear. All three non-active inputs are routed to the tuner outputs so a guitar tech can tune any instrument in a non active channel without unplugging it.

      The BOMB
      "ROCHESTER" SERIES GUITAR EFFECTS





      "As one of the original founders of MXR*, I first brought these effects pedals to guitarists almost 40 years ago. They were the ones that started a revolution and no one has made them quite the same since . . . hand-wired, American made, built to last forever and with the exact same circuits and quality components.

      It's the way we did it back then and it's the way we've approached everything we've done since. With this new line of vintage pedals, the ONLY things we changed are the addition of true-bypass, a 9 Volt power inlet and an LED to indicate when they're active.

      To celebrate 40 years in rock-n-roll, we're proud to release the Rochester Series pedals. You're gonna love 'em."

Tactical Power Distribution from Whirlwind.


The Qbox Goes Digital

The original Whirlwind Qbox was developed in response to requests for a simple test device that could generate or listen to signals, from mic level to amplifier drive level, at any point in a sound system.

The Qbox does that with a built in condenser microphone or test tone generator. It also "listens" with its built-in speaker or headphone jack. There are lights to verify the presence of phantom or intercom power and it can be used as an intercom, monitor speaker, setup generator, etc.

This unit supports the "Divide and Conquer" principle of troubleshooting. By substituting a Qbox at a problem point in a system, the user can easily verify signal presence or generate signal to determine if the problem lies farther down the line.

A New "Generation"
But what do you do when transmit audio in an AES/EBU digital audio system and nothing comes out the other end? How can you verify that the sending unit is actually generating good data, that the data actually contains audio or that a receiving unit is working properly? In fact, some digital systems are so quiet that the total lack of hum and hiss can sometimes make it difficult to determine whether the system is even on at all. So, an AES/EBU digital system presents special troubleshooting challenges.

After gathering ideas from prospective users at trade shows and through email, Whirlwind engineers designed the AESQbox.

Following is a brief description of the AESQbox and it s functions. For a detailed description, you may download a detailed white paper here.

MODE Selections
Three operating modes are selectable with a MODE switch:
IN/OUT Normal Mode

PASS THRU The digital audio received on the input is passed through to the output at the same sample rate so that the audio content may be monitored – the AESQbox is acting like both a "wiretap" and a "repeater".

CABLE TEST The analog audio is delivered to the AES output where you may then test your digital cable by connecting from the output back to he AES input, which should allow the user to hear the audio. This could also be described as a "self test" mode for the unit as well as to verify the integrity of the cable.


Digital Input Section
The AESQbox recognizes digital sample rates from 32 kHz to 192 kHz. A set of INPUT SAMPLE RATE indicators shows the following sample frequencies (in kHz): 32, 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, and 192.

A FAULT LED indicates problems with the data stream or hardware.

The digital audio is converted to analog and may be monitored via a high quality unbalanced, 1/8" TRS stereo line/headphone output or with the built in speaker. The channel monitored by the speaker is selectable with a switch.

Digital Output Section
The SOURCE switch allows selection of MIC, TONE or AUX IN (a 1/8" TRS stereo unbalanced jack) as the analog audio source.
  • The built-in TONE generator provides 440 Hz for the left channel and 880 Hz for the right.

  • The built-in MIC is an electret condenser type and feeds both the left and right channels.

  • The AUX IN accepts line level stereo audio.
The analog signal is converted to AES/EBU digital and output via the male XLR jack and BNC.

Quality Audio
One of the requirements of this design is to produce high quality audio.  The headphone/speaker amp circuit has superb THD and noise specs and the line output will have near pro-quality sound. The idea is that this unit can also double as a quality, portable AES-to-Line or Line-to-AES converter. 

Other Stuff
The AESQbox operates on 4 AA size batteries or with a 6V external power supply (included). A POWER indicator shows that power is on and allows the user to assess battery condition - when it gets dim, time to change the batteries.
