Neutrik has issued an update of its FOC Controller app for its compact, ultra-robust NA2-IO-DPRO I/O Dante interface device, that enables connectivity of legacy analogue and non networked digital audio equipment within Dante audio networks, in the most demanding application environments.
The DPRO Controller gives users remote control of device functions such as level, mute, gain, phantom power, input signal (including patching input signals to either output) and low-cut filter; as well as monitoring the status of the device and providing the ability to change the its network settings. DPRO also enables save, recall and loading of user presets. V2.0 introduces a completely new device discovery mechanism that dramatically improves the response speed of the software and enhances the user experience by separating ONLINE and OFFLINE devices. For optimal performance DPRO Controller V2.0 should be used in combination with the latest (v9.14) firmware and the website download bundles the updated controller and firmware.
Available in Windows and macOS versions, the Controller app requires a minimum of 2GB RAM, better than 1280 x 1024 pixel display resolution, and Windows 7 or later and macOS 10.12 or higher.
The NA2-IO-DPRO front facia features two inputs on XLR, switchable between mic and line level and AES/EBU, and two XLR outputs switchable between line level and XLR/EBU. The rear panel sports Primary and Secondary Dante ports, making it one of the most versatile and powerful portable Dante audio interface devices on the market. XLR connector and Ethernet ports are lockable and the ultra-rugged form-factor has a removable rubber safety casing for maximum reliability in field production applications. Optional mounting brackets or a rack panel, allow all three devices to be mounted on the underside of tables, in floor boxes, outboard racks or on a truss.
