Audioarts Lightning comes in 12- or 16-channel tabletop configurations and has a modular design with four channel input panels, and a Master/Monitor panel with linear faders for headphone and control room level control. All faders are conductive plastic and all switches are LED illuminated. Input channels have A/B source selection, with balanced line in for the A source and trimmable -10 to +4 line in on B. Standard features include four stereo program busses, two auto mix-minuses for call-ins, four mic preamps with variable gain trim and switchable +48V phantom power, plus built-in headphone jack and CUE speaker amplifiers. Additional four channel mic preamp cards can be fitted if needed.

Power Supply

Clean and proper power is key to the great performance you’ve come to expect from Audioarts. It would be easy to just purchase over-the-counter power supplies for our Lightning console. But we don’t. In order to maintain our high level of quality we’ve designed and built a dedicated separate rackmount supply - our SPS-202.
