Calrec Audio will launch Artemis Ray, an audio console with 72 faders, at the NAB show in Las Vegas.

The layout fits into 2372 mm, smaller than the firm’s Shine model but with the same functionality making the appliance a bonus for OB trucks where space is at a premium.

It is capable of operating at multiple sample rates and provides up to 456 channel-processing paths, 64 IFB/track outputs and 32 auxiliaries.

The console also features a second compressor/limiter in each channel and more than 70 minutes of assignable delay

“We work closely with our customers and listen to their requirements,” said Dave Letson, Calrec’s vice president of sales. “In situations where space is at a premium, like in OB trucks, we understand that a high fader density is not only desirable, but essential.

“Artemis Ray provides the same functionality as previous models, but with more channels and faders in the same footprint. It’s a very powerful combination.”

The console features a fader/monitor panel with a surface layout that allows more faders in a reduced surface area. The same width as a standard Artemis fader panel, it includes eight full-size faders. The same panel is available on the Artemis Light, Beam, and Shine models.

“By making the new monitor panel available on all our existing Artemis models, we’re giving our customers access to all of this increased functionality,” Letson added.

“Artemis has proved a very popular and reliable workhorse all over the world, and the new Artemis Ray adds even more value.”

The console also features three independent APFL systems for multiple operator use.
