In response to wide demand, Roland have put a scheduler into the
AR-3000SD as a standard feature, eliminating the need to connect an
external timer. This allows control by time or calendar. Time adjustment
using Network Time Protocol (NTP) client functionality is also possible,
for precisely timed automation announcements at fixed intervals. Using
just the AR-3000SD, you can create yearly programs for important
announcements for tasks that must be played back at fixed intervals and
The programmable timer feature can store in memory 14 days worth of
single-day schedules containing 50 tasks each. This lets you do things
like assign single-day schedules to different days of the week to create
a weekly schedule, or assign them to specific months and days and create
a yearly schedule.
Endless control and
performance possibilities using MIDI and RS-232C
MIDI data can be played back and captured as well as playback of RS-232C
commands. Using the AR-3000SD in combination with an external sound
module or synthesizer, for instance, let's you reproduce performances
that are direct, with total control. With direct playback of RS-232C
commands the AR-3000SD can control V-Mixers, video switchers like the
Roland V-800HD, and a host of other audio, video and lighting equipment.
This along with MIDI control enables the AR-3000SD to be the nucleus of
a full production environment.
supporting higher efficiency come standard
A rich array of playback and control formats let you configure systems
that are simple and intuitive.
A LAN (local area network) port is standard and lets you achieve simple,
efficient systems matched to individual setups. Web server functionality
has been added enabling settings and control from a computer anywhere on
the network. The unit also functions as a DHCP client which eliminates
the trouble of obtaining and assigning IP addresses.
