TouchStone controllers are fitted with low power consuming processors running on embedded operating systems depending on customer preferences. They are equipped with USB, Ethernet and RS 232 interfaces for communication with external networks and for technical control of radio shows from the same device. Profanity delays, telephone hybrids and outside broadcast codecs can be controlled and monitored from TouchStone controllers as well as audio distribution and routing.

These widgets can also be modified with your own individual graphics and can be located at any position on either the bottom or upper LCD monitor. The widgets can be configured to control any device connected to the control network such as routers, DSP engines and other third-party equipment.
