experience quality reliability TransLanTech Sound


TransLanTech Sound is proud to announce the latest additions to its increasing roster of dealers, Media Technologie Service in Nogent-sur-Marne, France, and Progressive Concepts, a radio broadcast equipment supplier outside of Chicago.

Media Technologie, based in the Ile-de-France region, is a provider of consulting, integration, and product sales to the broadcast industry. Manager Cedric Maufroy is pleased to provide top-notch digital audio processing to his customers.

Progressive Concepts was founded by Eric Hoppe in 1990 as a source for high-quality broadcast products and service. Hoppe says, “It is our philosophy that our broadcast equipment products are of such high quality that, when you try them, you’ll want to keep them. The Ariane Sequel fits right in.”

Today TransLanTech has announced a change in ownership. Co-founder David Reaves has moved on to pursue other interests, leaving the company in the hands of former partner Jim Huste.

In an interview with Paul McLane of Radio World, Huste said, “Although TransLanTech had established a strong reputation for quality and reliability, like many small companies, we found our progress slowed after the economic crash of 2008. David felt he needed more financial resources to secure his future, and his interests had shifted somewhat over the years. By the end of 2011, we had formalized the separation. TransLanTech remains a limited liability company, and at the present time, I am the sole owner.

“After 10 years in the market, there is still a strong demand for the Ariane product line, and I am looking forward to opening new markets in South America and Asia,” Huste continued. “We are also actively looking for new niche products. I’m certain that there is a hands-on CE out there mulling over an idea that could become the next Product of the Year. I’d like to use our expertise and reputation to bring it to market.”

The second-generation Ariane Sequel features TransLanTech’s signature sum and difference processing and can also work in conventional left and right stereo with adjustable coupling between channels, as well as in dual channel mono mode.

It's the unique multiband, release gated, 'windowing' feed-forward RMS control that sets the Ariane in a class by itself.

  • All digital all the way through - not a hybrid analog/digital design.
  • Same great gain and stereo image control as the original Ariane Stereo Audio Leveler.
  • Three processing modes: sum and difference (matrix); independent two-channel; stereo-linked
  • Output peak protection limiting
  • Adjustable output sample rate: 32, 44.1 or 48kHz (or synch to input)
  • 8 Savable user presets with contact closure remote activation
  • TCP/IP and RS-232 remote control
  • Expanded metering options: Peak and RMS reading on input and output
  • Analog and AES/EBU digital inputs and outputs
  • Software upgrade capability
  • Front panel headphone output

With units installed in broadcast stations throughout the world, the Ariane Sequel is also great as an IBOC/Streaming/Webcasting leveler for a more consistent, listenable sound. Use it on satellite or remote broadcast feeds, production, or mix finalizing. The Ariane Sequel is the heavy hitter of AGC levelers for Radio and Television. It makes things sound better!
