DAR Goes Live with TriggerDAR's Trigger Audio Replay System.
Digital Audio Research Limited (DAR) has launched the Trigger Audio Replay System, building on its innovative workstation and disk-recorder technology to create a unique, flexible and powerful system for live television productions, as well as for radio and live theatre. Ideally suited to game show applications, Trigger provides easy-to-use instant-play facilities, allowing sound effects, music segments and voice-overs to be managed from a single system.

Trigger offers the the ability to record, edit, assign and replay audio segments from within a single-screen display. Mono and stereo audio segments can be assigned across up to four stereo outputs, with segments sequenced as four separate Playlists, or triggered individually by the 32 instant-play Trigger keys. Specific segments can be programmed for triggering by external switching - including contestants' and presenters' buttons, and console fader-starts - with Trigger also able to generate or respond to MIDI commands for synchronizing audio play-outs to other events and equipment, such as studio lighting.

Trigger can be operated as a stand-alone system - or, using DAR's D-net protocol, Trigger systems can be networked to each other, or linked to a studio-wide, server-based audio network. A disk-based system, Trigger is supplied with an 18GB internal hard drive, plus a choice of removable-media drives including DVD-RAM, MO and Zip. Trigger's built-in editing functions provide the ability to fine-tune audio segments independently - trim start and end points, adjust fade-in and fade-out slopes, set gain levels, and adjust EQ settings with DAR's renowned four-band parametric design.
