PK Sound has released a major update to its Kontrol product management software. Version 2.5 includes an upgraded user interface and streamlined menu system to add support for tablet and mobile device users.

PK Sound Kontrol 2.5Kontrol 2.5 software gives users the ability to make precise adjustment to PK’s products in real-time, including the robotic Trinity and Trinity10 line arrays. Also, v2.5 has increased compatibility with PK’s install and manual-series offerings, as well as some small tweaks to provide a more stable platform.

Part of what led PK Sound to upgrade Kontrol’s user interface was feedback from artists and FOH engineers: ‘There’s not a lot of space in front of house situations,’ says PK Sound Lead Developer, Pierre Bastianelli. ‘We found that our users were favouring tablets over desktop computers or laptops for their size and ease of use, so we’ve redesigned the UI of Kontrol to be more compatible with these and other touchscreen devices.’

Bastianelli maintins that, despite the changes, Kontrol 2.5 still has the same feature-set that users have come to know, as well as continued support for laptop and desktop users. ‘Although our new controls are being done with touch interface in mind, it is still compatible with all existing devices,’ he says. ‘We’re designing a system that people can rely on, and we also want to give our users a taste of what’s to come in future updates.’

In addition to the upgraded user interface, Kontrol 2.5 adds compatibility with the Manual and Install versions of PK Sound’s Trinity and Gravity speakers, giving users precise control over internal DSP.

The v2.5 update is available now to all Kontrol users.
