Get Your Signature Sound with Omnia.11

By Mark Manolio on Nov 1, 2017 11:50:00 AM

With G-Force, it is easier than ever to get the sound you are looking for with the Quick Setup Tab!

Our suggested method for using G-Force for the first time is to listen to all of the presets while offline. Pick the ones that sound closest to what you want on-air. Then put the Omnia.11 G-Force on-air, listen to those candidate presets on your “trusted” radios, and decide on one to start with.

Omnia Provides Xtra Listener Satisfaction

By Dave Sarkies on Oct 11, 2017 10:45:00 AM

When the owner of Spain’s XtraFM 92.7 decided to sell, he wanted the buyer to be someone with ‘Radio DNA’—someone familiar with the industry who really cared about the station, and wouldn’t buy it simply as a money-making venture. Otherwise he was going to take it off the air. Enter Patrick van den Hoek, broadcast engineer at XtraFM for seven years. When the offer to buy the station was extended, Patrick didn’t have to think it over for too long.

When AM Audio Can Run the Gamut, Omnia.7AM is the Answer

By Dave Sarkies on Aug 16, 2017 10:15:00 AM

Recently we’ve heard from a number of AM broadcasters raving about the Omnia.7AM. One of them, legendary broadcast Saul Levine, even went so far as to hail the 7AM as a key to AM revitalization.

Another fan of the Omnia.7AM is Dave Kolesar, Program Director of freeform music station WWFD The Gamut in Frederick, Maryland. The Gamut originates as an HD subchannel of WTOP in Washington, where Dave is also a Broadcast Engineer, and is rebroadcast over 820 AM. As an engineer, Dave has a wealth of experience on the technical side of things. But whether he’s working from a programmer’s perspective or an engineer’s, Omnia has long been his choice when it comes to processing.

Meet Rob Dye, the Unsung Omnia Hero

By Dave Sarkies on Aug 2, 2017 12:00:00 PM

Anytime a new Omnia processor is announced, friends across the industry think of Frank Foti. And that's natural, since Frank is not only Telos Alliance CEO, but the founder of Omnia Audio and still very active in the development of Omnia Audio products—most notably the powerhouse Omnia.11. You might also hear the names Cornelius Gould and Leif Claesson. As Senior Algorithm Developer for Omnia, Cornelius gets applause for devising how to tweak Omnia processors to get just the right sound, while Leif receives accolades as the developer of the Omnia.7 and Omnia.9. But there's another key member of the Omnia brain trust who sometimes doesn't get the attention he deserves—Chief Engineer Rob Dye.

We sat down with Rob recently to get his thoughts on Omnia processors and the Telos Alliance, and to learn a little more about this unsung hero.

Saul Levine: Omnia Is the Solution to AM Radio's Woes

By Dave Sarkies on Jul 12, 2017 11:30:00 AM

As one of the early believers in FM in the 1950s, Saul Levine is a pioneer in FM broadcasting. And as the owner of Mount Wilson Broadcasting in greater Los Angeles still today, he’s been a major player in the industry for decades.

As an early proponent of FM, when many were skeptical of the new technology, it may seem a little like deja vu all over again for Saul these days – and yet, a bit of a role reversal at the same time – as he fights for a broadcast format many have grown skeptical of – AM.

It’s All About the Audio Tour 2017!!

By Frank Foti on Jul 5, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Recently, I had the pleasure to have lunch with a good friend, Gary Katz. If that name sounds familiar - it should - Gary produced just about all of the albums for a little ol’ musical group you may know… Steely Dan! We were comparing notes about audio in the broadcast field, as well as life in the world of recording and music producing. He expressed how it has always been critical and vital for recording engineers, producers, and even the musicians to ‘hear’ the latest and greatest in technology. This is a practice that is still very common today.

Omnia.9sg Sounds Harder in Tilburg

By Dave Sarkies on Jul 5, 2017 9:00:00 AM

The city of Tilburg in the Netherlands hosts the biggest fair in the country every year. One of the big draws is pop-up radio station Kermis FM 105.9 that broadcasts for the duration of the fair. Each year several celebrities appear as on-air guests during the fair, attracting listeners and live look-ins from fairgoers alike. Last year, the station wanted its broadcast audio to sound even better for the annual fair broadcast, but without losing audio quality. The solution? The Omnia.9sg Broadcast Stereo Generator.
