With the release of Armonía Pro Audio Suite 2.7.0, Powersoft’s proprietary digital signage monitoring and processing software has acquired further major features and DSP power. The update includes the new speaker preset v2 (.spk2) file format; this file can be copied directly onto X Series amplifiers with a USB stick, to be recalled later on desired channels via the WebApp interface.

Powersoft Armonía Pro Audio Suite 2.7.0X Series and Ottocanali DSP+D amplifiers are now able to act as totally configurable Dante sources, with the option to stream out eight processed or unprocessed signals. Standalone analogue-to-Dante converters are therefore no longer necessary in complex installations, and direct monitoring of the DSP processing can be easily achieved in third party measurement software such as Smaart v7.

A higher degree of loudspeaker supervision is achievable with the new Live Impedance curve, calculated in real-time and storable/displayable against a reference curve in the new spk2 preset files.

New RMS and Peak limiters with side chain Frequency-Shaping are now available on X and Ottocanali DSP+D Series amplifiers, allowing greater protection and performance. Frequency-Shaping, in conjunction with Live Impedance monitoring, safely pushes speakers even further in terms of overall SPL.

The entire communication protocol has been rewritten to achieve better performance. Thousands of parameters are now sent in a fraction of a second, allowing for lightning fast operation with X and Ottocanali DSP+D Series devices. In conjunction with the latest firmware the response to Advanced Groups raised cosine equalisation is faster, and synchronised across on all channels.

In addition to X Series and Ottocanali, the new Armonía release is also designed to offer improved functionality for the M-Drive and DSP 4 + IPALMOD models. The release of Armonía Pro Audio Suite 2.7.0 also coincides with new firmware for the X Series platform and Ottocanali DSP+D amplifiers.

Key features:
· Live Impedance tab in output section.
· Internal Dante Output Routing feature (eight Dante output channels fully customisable from Armonìa).
· Frequency-Shaping limiters feature for RMS and Peak limiters.
· LED animation during boot and firmware upgrades.
· Central ring LED shows the mains connection: Blue mono-phase, Red bi-phase, White three-phase.
· WebApp re-style.
· WebApp MAINS tab shows mains phases.
· Improved performance and filtering responsiveness (now synchronised across all channels).
· Third-party control protocol: Add ‘Save as’ command.
· Third-party control protocol: Add Ottocanali DSP+D GPO status report.
· Third-party control protocol: Fix on X4 communication.

The Armonía release is available to download on the Powersoft Armonía Forum together with the Ottocanali firmware. Otherwise, the new X Series firmware is available to download into the new forum designed exclusively for users of the new X Series.

Besides firmware updates, inside the forum it will be possible to access direct support from Powersoft engineers, discuss ideas and requests for new features, exchange customized speaker presets with other users and be kept up-to-date on all new developments regarding X Series amplifiers.
