Sonifex RB-PD2 - Used

This used Sonifex RB-PD2 is in good working condition but does feature some cosmetic marks. The Sonifex RB-PD2 is a stereo audio profanity delay used for live broadcast programs to prevent unwanted or obscene material from being transmitted. It features an automatic audio stretch algorithm that allows between 2 and 55 seconds of delay (at 32kHz 16bit) to be built up live whilst “on air”, whilst maintaining the correct pitch. The delay can also be acquired whilst playing a pre-selected audio file on a Compact Flash™ memory card. When the program is complete, the audio stretch algorithm seamlessly reduces the delay to zero.

We may have multiple of this unit and conditions of units may vary, before purchase please confirm the unit pictured is the unit for sale. Updated pictures can be provided. If you don't chat with us prior to purchase we can not guarantee you will receive the unit pictured.

The RB-PD2 has both balanced analogue and AES/EBU digital audio inputs and outputs on 3 pin XLR connectors and provides sample rates up to 48kHz at 24 bit. It can act as a combined A/D and D/A unit meaning that analogue inputs can be output as AES/EBU or vice-versa. The delay can be initiated by pressing the BUILD DELAY button on the front panel. A front panel display shows the amount of delay being built-up, up to the amount initially selected.
