Quincy, IL (August 24, 2010)–Broadcast Electronics has added new features to its AudioVAULT FleX digital automation system. The system now includes new controls for manipulating audio seconds before air and voice tracker with gain control for complex program transitions.
“Overall, we are continuing to fill out our strategy for a studio system that is responsive and customizable. We are filling out the AudioVAULT FleX with several new functions to make it easier for talent to respond to on-air situations similar to a club DJ, and we’re adding layout features that make it possible to jump between applications,” says Ray Miklius, vice president of studio operations for Broadcast Electronics.
AudioVAULT FleX is BE’s next-generation AudioVAULT system introduced in 2008. It features IP networking, voice track segue editor, and changeable “skins” preset according to talent preference, show requirements and other studio purposes.
With this latest version, AudioVAULT FleX adds a simple segue editor for doing quick song-to-song transitions and an enhanced voice tracker with gain envelope control for crossfading voice tracks with music. The new voice tracker makes it possible for talent to add commentary during a song by adjusting audio gain, and to fade music or voice tracks during transitions. Another new feature lets talent quickly mark sections of an upcoming song and play it on-air as a “hook” leading into a break, or as a recurring audio loop played at intervals throughout a segment.
The new version of AudioVAULT FleX can also be configured to suit the individual workflow, compared to previous versions of AudioVAULT that offered fixed layouts. In addition, its new tabbed gadget dock feature enables users to organize and stack gadgets into tabs and quickly switch between them.
