E-6 Console/Control Surface6
E-Series E-6 is a console control surface that interfaces with Wheatstone’s WheatNet-IP networking and routing system via a single CAT6 cable. No audio is routed or mixed in the surface itself. As a networked system, the console can access any source in your entire complex, sharing remote codecs or bringing up another studio’s program bus on the console.
E-6 surfaces can be intermixed with all other surfaces in the same system, such as our LXE, LX-24, L-8/L-12, IP-12/IP-16, E-1, Sideboard or our Talent Stations. All surfaces include event save and recall. Set events for the morning show, normal programming, special events, remotes, weekly shows, whatever you desire. Easily recall the event to completely reconfigure the console: sources, bus assignments, and settings. Set levels of access so that the more experienced operators can accomplish even the most complex tasks.

WheatNet-IP Blade Extends E-6's Power
With WheatNet-IP BLADE-3s, you get a virtual rack room in a 1-rack space box. They handle all the I/O (AES/EBU, SPDIF, AOIP, MADI, SDI and AES 67) and provide full routing capabilities. Each BLADE-3 gives you two 8×2 utility mixers, 12 universal GPI/O ports, 128 software logic ports, silence detection, built-in audio clip player, stereo multi-band audio processing, and much more, assignable anywhere on the network. With it you can create workflows that would require a ton of third-party gear.
EQ & Dynamics
The E-6 offers comprehensive Vorsis-grade processing Includes 4-BAND PARAMETRIC EQUALIZER ; HIGH- AND LOW-PASS FILTERS, 24db/ octave, adjustable frequency 16-500Hz and 1-20kHz; SOFT-KNEE COMPRESSOR with adjustable threshold, ratio, attack, release, and EXPANDER/NOISE GATE with adjustable threshold, ratio, depth, and time constants.
E-6 GUI Screens
The full power of the E-6 console is accessed through the Graphic Display: Easy to understand even for the less experienced board op; power tools for the experienced production guru; setup and programming for the facility engineer. The VGA driver and software is embedded in the console surface so no external PC is required.
