Built-in yearly programmable timer

In response to wide demand, a scheduler has become 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 set intervals and times.

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.

Network features 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.

24-bit recording and playback at 96 kHz for higher sound quality

Support for 24-bit, 96-kHz audio achieves even higher sound quality for both recording and playback. Use of AES/EBU output connectors also enables high-quality digital output. XLR connectors have been added for audio output, enabling worry-free use in a wide array of applications.

Support SD/SDHC card

For storage, in addition to Compact Flash memory, the AR-3000SD is also equipped with a slot for an SD memory card. Using a single memory card as two virtual cards lets you record up to 2,000 phrases. You can even back up and restore data using a USB flash drive.In addition to uncompressed WAV, MP3 format has been added for use in recording and playback. By accommodating a full range of formats without sacrificing compatibility, the AR-3000SD meets a diverse array of needs and setups.

The Line Thru feature lets you mix in external audio during playback.

During audio-phrase playback, you can mix in audio from LINE IN and output the results. For instance, this lets you mix background music or other audio into in-store announcements. The volume level of audio input via LINE IN can also be adjusted independently, so you can even add fade-ins and fade-outs.

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.
