Sound System Management Software Streamlines Operations

FARMINGDALE, NY, February 24, 2010 – Powersoft, an industry leading manufacturer of superior quality digital power amplifiers for the professional audio market, is pleased to announce the release of Armonía Pro Audio Suite sound system management software. Designed by the Powersoft R&D team to work on any PC, Armonía delivers a highly intuitive and comprehensive software solution for managing and controlling sound systems of any size or scope that rely on Powersoft amplifiers to drive the speaker systems.

“Powersoft amplifiers are being used to power speaker systems for everything from high profile entertainment like the Times Square New Year’s Eve celebration and the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center to major stadium and club installations, as well as major concerts the world over,? says Claudio Lastrucci, managing director of Powersoft. “We listened to industry feedback and developed Armonía to provide an easy to use but powerful control package that can handle all kinds of applications from the simple to the most complex distributed systems in real time.?

Armonía Pro Audio Suite is an Ethernet-based, auto-addressing software package that offers full control of all amplifier parameters while accommodating AES3 audio on the same cable. The package has built-in redundancy and extensive logging and alerting features for worry free operation. Armonía is designed to work with KDSP-equipped Powersoft K, Q, D, QTU and Duecanali series amplifiers delivering control and monitoring of all amplifier functions including AC mains current draw, headroom, protections and faults. The software also includes advanced grouping options.

The suite has a LiveImpedance™ measurement screen for constant visual tracking of the system impedance curve with graphs of the actual musical signal at actual power level. As Powersoft amplifiers are known for excellent, industry leading damping, Armonía delivers the new Active DampingControl™ feature for vastly improved cone control for better sound, higher output and extremely tight bass frequency reproduction. The TruePower™ Limiter feature yields controlled operation and longer driver life by maintaining safe output power levels depending on frequency and true load impedance.

Key features include comprehensive sound and system management, FIR and IIR filters, various available crossovers, modeling and import options, and multiple layer operation. Armonía offers both offline and online modes using an Ethernet protocol, where connectivity is achieved using a standard CAT5e cable via Powersoft’s AESOP (AES3 & Ethernet Simple Open Protocol) on an optionally installed KAESOP board. When used with the KAESOP board, a system engineer can extend the network to a virtually unlimited number of amplifiers through either auto-addressing with self-assigned IP addresses or end user configurable IP addresses. Armonía may also run over an RS485 remote control protocol, which comes standard on all K Series and Duecanali amps, and is an option available on Q and D series.

Armonía Pro Audio Suite is available as a free download to Powersoft amplifier owners at: www.armoniasuite.com.
