Type R is a brand new, modular, expandable, IP-based radio system from Calrec Audio. It utilises standard networking hardware and soft panels which can be tailored to operator needs.

With a simple 2U core with integrated I/O resources, a single core can power up to three independent mixing environments. Whether used as independent studio consoles, microphone processors or utility mixing, the ability to use multiple mixing engines combined with the flexibility of the AES67 compatible network, provide all the power you will ever need.
