Item: OASIS 12


Designed with your next-generation studio demands in mind.

Simply connect your microphones, source equipment, audio monitors — even a PC automation channel (no sound card required) — directly into Oasis and you’re on the air.Oasis allows you to cost-effectively and easily migrate from analog to digital whenever you’re ready. In addition to capabilities for all necessary audio and logic components, Oasis provides both analog and digital outputs that enable you to connect your facility with modern STLs and studio infrastructures.

An affordable solution for studios of any size and budget, Oasis is built with the combination of cost-efficient engineering and high quality you expect from Harris PR&E products.

Oasis has two basic input options — a balanced analog A/B input card and a microphone line A/B input card. Each hot-swappable card represents eight total inputs available to the four corresponding faders.

The console provides all the monitoring outputs you might need, including monitor and headphones for control room and studio. It even offers a remote level control option for the studio monitors, along with a direct “talk to studio” interface from the console.

Oasis features two meters, the second of which is switchable. It also displays an event timer with the controls necessary to track all your show elements.

In addition to the host of standard Oasis features, an optional 8x1 RLS module is also available as an option for input expansion. The control for this remote line selector is offered in a convenient console drop-in panel.

  • Output Sample Rate 44.1 kHz, system referenced
  • Processing Resolution 24-bit

Logic GPIO

  • Logic Inputs Opto-isolated, floating or referenced to internal +5 VDC via DIP switch
  • Logic Outputs Opto-isolated, floating or referenced to internal ground via DIP switch. Outputs are independently configured for pulse or continuous, open or closed operation

Audio Frequency Response

Audio Dynamic Range (referenced to FSD)

  • Analog Input to Analog Output 103 dB, 106 dB “A” weighted
  • Analog Input to Digital Output 107 dB

Audio Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise

  • Analog Input to Analog Output <0.005%, 20 Hz to 20 kHz, +18 dBu input, +18 dBu output

Audio Crosstalk Isolation

  • Adjacent Analog Inputs or Outputs >95 dB, 20 Hz to 20 kHz


  • Dimensions (H x W x D) Oasis-12: 5.49 x 28.4 x 17.25 in.

Power Supply

  • Type External, ‘line lump’ style, plug-in power supply
  • Input voltage 100 to 240 VAC, 50/60 Hz
  • AC input Detachable IEC cord with C5 (Mickey Mouse) connector
  • Output voltage +12 VDC
  • Power Requirements <100 W at 120 VAC/60 Hz

Test Conditions

  • FSD = Full Scale Digital, +24 dBu
  • Analog outputs measured with >1 k ohm load
  • Total Harmonic Distortion (THD+N) is measured at +18 dBu, using a 1 kHz or a swept signal with a 22 kHz low pass filter
  • 0 dBu corresponds to 0.775 volts RMS — regardless of the circuit impedance, which is equal to 0 dBm, as measured on a 600 ohm circuit
  • Noise specs use a 22 kHz measurement bandwidth. Using a 30 kHz bandwidth will increase the noise measurement by 1.7 dB
