The station, which launched two years ago, now has a six-fader, AoIP-based Type R with dual-layer functionality, which gives it extra faders at the touch of a button. Vibez.Live also added a Type R large soft panel with feature sets pre-loaded for more control.
John Badenhorst, Co-Founder and a Host at Vibez.Live, said, “Having used a variety of equipment for the first 18 months after we launched, including an analogue desk, we knew that we needed to upgrade to enhance our capabilities. We spoke to Wild & Marr about Calrec’s AoIP-based Type R for Radio system and were immediately impressed.”
Immediately after the switch, Vibez.Live’s online communication was flooded with listeners commenting on the great improvement in sound quality.
The Calrec Type R has a simple layout and a clear touch screen display. The sleek, compact design fits perfectly into the Vibez.Live studio environment, taking up less space while doing the job of a much bigger desk.
Vibez.Live also uses two pairs of Shure SRH840 headphones, two Shure SM7B microphones and On-Stage’s microphone boom arms. All levels are now easily managed and compressed, which was previously challenging.
Vibez.Live broadcasts music from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, with recent months seeing the introduction of a weekly ‘Trance Vibez’ show in conjunction with Denon DJ SA and Midi Music.
