Get the Arrakis ARC-8 console along with NEW WAVE on-air radio software at one great price.
With a single stereo mixing bus, the Arrakis ARC-8 is ideal for fast paced live on air, production, and remote applications. Two mics supports a host and guest talk format. The mix minus bus (for an external hybrid) supports Telephone talk formats or call ins.
