The latest software release of Powersoft’s Armonía Pro Audio Suite brings ‘substantial’ enhancements for fixed installation customers looking to remote manage and monitor a network audio systems.

Powersoft Armonía Pro Audio SuiteArmonía v2.8 adds a further set of features including Operator View, which brings the ability to customise a new window tab depending on needs. There is a choice of pre-configured objects covering mute, gain, delay, scene recall, magnifier to EQ window, vu meter of a selected channel, status LED, background image and notes. Each object can be imported into the window as many times as necessary, and then be resized and organised depending on project design, and whether the final application is an installation or a touring situation. Notes and background pictures can be imported to help user navigation within a complex workspace.

The objects can be linked to any Advanced Group already present in the main workspace tab in order to expedite the customisation process of the layout. In addition to the Operator View, the Access Manager includes further access levels such as Admin, Engineer, Operator or Guest. Different access to a session will allow that user to interact/modify only predetermined functionalities within Armonía and this will result in a more extended flexibility in terms of overall main control.

The X Series is now fully integrated with diagnostic alarms that will show up in Armonía in real time, giving a more accurate overview of his system. Those alarms are linked to channel/hardware faults, power supply faults, fan faults, channel temperature, limiter activity and output load detection and input pilot tone detection on Ottoncanali series amplifiers.

Powersoft has introduced additional categories into which the presets are divided, allowing users to select from presets emanating from different sources – such as community or Powersoft-approved presets. The X series speaker preset library has also been largely expanded.

The latest version of Armonia also includes a number of other enhancements including Live Impedance on DSP4; History Monitor on DSP4; Management/availability of Dante/AES3 signal source on X Series models and Ottocanali DSP+D models. There are also improvements to GroupOverview – way names can be added to X series models and Ottocanali DSP+D models, while channels are now sorted by their amplifier name/channel index. There are also improvements on keyboard interaction without mouse usage.
