Sound System Management Software Streamlines Operations
LAS VEGAS, NV â Powersoft, an industry leading manufacturer of superior quality digital power amplifiers for the professional audio market, is pleased to announce the release of ArmonĂa Pro Audio Suite sound system management software at InfoComm 2010 (Booth C7798), June 5 to 11, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Designed by the Powersoft R&D team to work on any PC, ArmonĂa 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.
âPowersoft amplifiers are being used to power speaker systems for everything from high profile entertainment like the current Black Eyed Peas tour and Jazz Fest stages to major stadium and club installations, as well as major concerts the world over,â? says Claudio Lastrucci, managing director of Powersoft. âWe listened to industry feedback and developed ArmonĂa 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.â?
ArmonĂa 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. ArmonĂa 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 LiveImpedanceâ˘ 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, ArmonĂa delivers the new Active DampingControlâ˘ feature for vastly improved cone control for better sound, higher output and extremely tight bass frequency reproduction. The TruePowerâ˘ 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. ArmonĂa offers both offline and online modes using an Ethernet protocol, where connectivity is achieved using a standard CAT5e cable via Powersoftâs 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. ArmonĂa 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.
ArmonĂa is now also the only software of its kind available in seven languages. Including English, ArmonĂa’s vocabulary now includes Chinese, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish, making it a truly global tool for the pro audio industry.
