I/O cards can be shared between systems and a Broadcast station that has decided to use the AXITE as their main mixer can be sure to have invested in a future proof product.

The AXITE can be used for small local 6 fader desktop use as well as large scale (128 faders max) production work and everything in between.


A large matrix of 1280×1280 with extensive signal processing on a maximum of 128 stereo channels is available that can be assigned to Sixteen stereo summing mixing busses and sixteen monitor buses as well as directly between the maximum of 4 DSP’s.


Imagine a console where you can decide yourself what a switch/encoder or fader will do for you. Not possible?


With the AXITE this is possible and… you can do that yourself by selecting a function out of hundreds of functions simply selectable from a database in your AXITE/AXUM browser.

Two control surfaces (with their own CRM sections) in different studios sharing the same I/O rack is also no problem for the  AXITE/AXUM platform.

Hardware purchasing choices are straightforward:

Rack ONE accepts a maximum of 21 I/O single slot cards. Rack TWO accepts a maximum of 37 I/O single slot cards.

An AXITE Control Surface Frame starts with 6 faders + CRM section as the main unit and can be extended to a maximum of 128 faders with 6 Fader extension units. Each individual Control Surface Frame can be mounted drop through in a work surface left or right of your script space.


Interfacing with studio equipment is with high quality low cost readily available STP cable, also called shielded STP Ethernet cable, see breakout boxes below to choose from.


An internally generated webpage allows you to remotely control all settings from anywhere in the world over Ethernet and /or Internet.

The internal MambaNet protocol controls the communication between all system parts linked to each other with world standard Ethernet.

It gives such an enormous freedom in system solutions so we hardly can imagine that your needs can not be met with the AXITE/AXUM.

A software Meter application is included and runs directly from the Control Surface, but also from any PC in the network.

Also hardware meters can be connected in the network anywhere, thanks to the MambaNet (a unique D&R design) protocol.



D&R AXITE System Highlites:

– Phone indication on screen

– Phase meters on modules, buses, monitor

– High precision Broadcast Clock

– Redundant power supply optional for both Control Surface and I/O rack

– Optional Remote Control Surface application



The switches on the channel-strip are software assignable to a function. Any Control surface switch can do anything you want it to do, but… to not confuse you we have programmed a factory default assignment that represents the working procedures of the average Radio Studio to start with.

Switches have long life dual color LED’s. So every active function is clearly shown. The basic 6 fader desktop frames are built to use as a drop through frame in a furniture surface.

With the main frame and a 6 fader extender you can already have a 12 fader On-AIR production mixer.

If more faders are needed more 6 fader extenders can be connected.


Processing RACK ONE for I/O cards:

RACK ONE  (3HE) can accept 21 one slot cards.

There are 16 available slots for I/O cards

(5 are used for POWER and Engine card)

Weight is 4.6 kg with an 80% card fill.


Processing RACK ONE for I/O cards (optional):

RACK TWO (6HE) accepts 40 I/O one slot cards

Two internal power supplies cards (3 slots each on the left side) are necessary as well as one Engine card (2 slots, on the right hand side of the Rack), a redundant power supply is optional.

If you just want I/O routing no DSP card is necessary.

But if you want signal processing one DSP card is always necessary to control 32 stereo channels as a maximum.

More DSP cards (4 max) give more processing channels (up to 128)

A range of I/O cards can slide into the 19″ rack to achieve the necessary number of analog and digital in and outputs your studio needs.

Any changes can be performed while ON-AIR.

RACK TWO can accept 37 one slot space I/O cards.

There are 35 available slots for I/O cards (8 are used for POWER and Engine card)


In/output connectors (optional):

The huge amount of in- and outputs per card could not be designed with a dedicated (jack/Cinch/XLR connector in the space available on the front of the card.

By using standard STP cables in every input and output module a compact and neat cabling can be achieved. Due to standardization, changes in wiring can be achieved very easily without the need for soldering.

These low cost Cat-5 cables are ready made available from us or from your nearest computer store starting at lengths of 30cm up to 20 meters.

If you need to connect a MICROPHONE to the AXITE take our 19” part number DR-60882045 break out panel.

Mount it in your studio rack, hook up a shielded RJ45 (STP) cable between the AXITE and this Mic input panel and you’re ready.

This also includes the remote wiring! No need to buy twice the amount of expensive XLR’s.

We have five types of patch panels available to choose from, see below. (Optional)


  • Mic break out panel DR-60881645
  • Line break out panel DR-60881646
  • Line in break out panel DR-60881647
  • Line out break out panel DR- 60881648
  • Line in/out break out panel DR-60881649
  • Dig in/out break out panel DR-60881650
