OVERVIEW: Radio Consoles, Networking, Software, Processing

Wheatstone for Radio

Wheatstone is ubiquitous in the radio industry. Since our early days, we've been making consoles that take radio further. Our networking set the standard for the industry, leading the way to modern AoIP networks. Our open architecture lets us partner with other industry folks to provide solutions that open doors for functionality. Our virtual tools provide solutions that are customizable to address just about any application you can think of. And our processing sets new standards for audio delivery.

We are constantly at it, developing tools that allow radio to address the need to be in many locations at once while maintaining control specific to their workflows from wherever they happen to be. In short, we are your Broadcast Perfectionists.

On-Air Broadcast and Mic/Voice Processors

Wheatstone is different. Radio stations that use our processors know that they can reach more listeners, due to our multipath mitigation controls. They know that they can build a more compelling sound - cleaner and louder - to keep that increased listenership from tuning out. In a market with so many processors to choose from, people who check out Wheatstone processing never go back to the status quo.
