Symetrix has released Composer 7.3 — the latest version of its powerful, yet intuitive Windows programming software for Edge, Radius NX, Prism, and Solus NX DSPs.
Symetrix Composer software enables integrators to program a complete end-to-end DSP signal path using just one application. New features in this update include multitrack audio recording, web-based event scheduler, support for new W Series remotes, new device integrations, and more.
Multitrack Audio Recording – Multitrack Audio Recording allows a Radius NX device to record up to 8 tracks of audio simultaneously to an external USB device. Audio tracks may be recorded individually or grouped into multi-channel modules of up to 8 channels per module.
The designer places one or more Recording Modules into the Design window of a Radius NX processor in Symetrix Composer. Each Recording Module has its own start/stop controls, assignable storage location on the USB drive, file naming configuration, and audio settings.
W Series Remotes – The W Series remotes expand Symetrix’s control options with versatile, IP-based remote controls powered by PoE. With four variants providing different combinations of rotary encoders, momentary buttons, and OLED displays, W Series remotes provide system designers with flexible control options that can be deployed with a simple Ethernet connection to a PoE switch or an inline PoE power injector.
W Series remotes leverage the same familiar programming interface used to program Symetrix ARC remotes and are available in black or white versions for both US and UK/EU form factors.
Web-based Event Scheduler – The Web-based Event Scheduler and all Control Server apps provide simple, direct access to system control from any device with a web browser regardless of the manufacturer or operating system of that device.
From any device with a web browser, a user can view existing scheduled events, make changes to existing events, or add new events. This eliminates the need for a dedicated computer running Composer software for adding/editing events. Users are able to easily control the functionality of the system without having access to modify the DSP programming of the system.
The Web-based Event Scheduler can also be accessed by any computer on the local network allowing administration of the system from anywhere within the local networking cloud.
New Device Integrations – Symetrix Composer 7.3 adds Intelligent Module support for direct integration of:
• Alcorn McBride V-Page paging station
• Attero Tech Zip4 paging station
• Audix Network Device Control DN4 & DN43 microphone interfaces
• ClockAudio TIM-1000 microphone
• Linea Research amplifiers
• Powersoft Mezzo amplifiers
• Visionary Solutions E4100 & D4100 encoder/decoder
Intelligent Modules allow Symetrix Composer to bring the same level of native control previously available only for Symetrix DSP devices to Symetrix I/O devices and non-Symetrix hardware. This includes direct integration with ARC and W Series remotes, real-time control of parameters, access to logic integration, and more.
