Powersoft has launched a ‘radically redesigned’ version of its Armonía interface – ArmoníaPlus.

Powersoft ArmoníaPlus Representing real-world audio design of a loudspeaker system, ArmoníaPlus takes users from system design to Showtime through a simplified guided workflow. In an environment controlled via intuitive hotkeys and icons, ArmoníaPlus presents a single window with four main views – Workspace, System List, Operator View, and Events.

Workspace is divided into two parts, with amplifiers occupying the left-hand space and loudspeakers on the right. Here there are four main steps: Design, Config, Tune, and Show, each offering a variety of functions. Once the link function is completed, operations can be carried out directly at the loudspeaker. Auditioning different presets is as easy as selecting the loudspeakers to control, so that their applications can be changed through the Tune:Preset page.

The layout and all control is visually intuitive. Amplifiers can be added directly to a rack, while loudspeakers can be grouped together, vertically and horizontally as the physical realm. Arrays of loudspeakers can be ‘packed’ so that when linking amplifiers, an algorithm will auto-select the next item, based on proximity, model and position on the screen, thus avoiding manual errors.

Creating advanced groups of loudspeakers offers the possibility of adjusting Gain, Delay, Polarity and EQ. new Tune:EQ page allows monitoring of the overall curve applied to every speaker, including countless groups. A Headroom meter adapts its LEDs based on the limiters of the speaker itself, showing an at-a-glance view of how hard the speakers are been driven.

The interface is designed to be free from sub-menus, with every function available via either a right-click or hotkey. To set amplifiers to static IP mode, for example, devices are selected and ArmoníaPlus assigns the available addresses progressively, starting from the desired one. Damping subs is achieved from a single slider or selection until the punchiness of the low end is re-established. Each portion of a sound system project can be exported as a ‘template’, a building block for a bigger system that can be replicated in the Workspace as required.

Among new functions, the Shading function allows ArmoníaPlus to reduce the gain and the loudspeaker limiter thresholds coherently, keeping the balance between elements even if the system is limiting.

ArmoníaPlus will not replace the previous version, as the new version of the software can coexist with the previous one, allowing users to familiarise themselves with the new design’s workflow approach over time. Tutorial videos are available on the Armonía website.
