Model ARK-3403 Show Controller Description

Start with the base model (ARK-3403): A compact, rugged, fanless chassis that is exceptionally shock & vibration resistant with DC power input, CPU, & SoundMan-Assistant software then add SoundMan-Server, ShowMan & E-Show software & industry standard audio and digital I/O cards from a huge variety of choices, and solid state or mechanical hard drives. Perfect for themed ride vehicles and all types of mobile units.

The SoundMan-Assistant onboard cue engine replays massive sound cues while exporting any MIDI commands in the cues and actuating GPIO contact closures depending on digital I/O. Eight independent cue lists with complete MSC timing allow cues to vary with show timing or human interactivity.

Free ABShowMaker Macintosh software provides exhaustive programming and control capabilities for any number of shows. Use any popular MIDI Sequencer to create complex MIDI compositions, capture them and place them in cues on the Model ARK-3403 via ABShowMaker.

Free SoundMan-Designer Windows software provides exhaustive programming and control capabilities for any number of shows. Use any popular MIDI Sequencer to create complex MIDI compositions, capture them and place them in cues on the Model ARK-3403 via SoundMan-Designer.

The Model ARK-3403 accepts MIDI Show Control commands from a wide range of Human-Machine Interfaces . Optional GPIO inputs trigger up to 255 cues with random access capability.
