Installed Sound Applications
|Allen & Heath has launched the latest version of the Windows based iDR Software Manager that configures iDR hardware components into an integrated audio distribution system. Version 3.3 has been developed to support the new iDR-4 signal processor and PL-9 "hub" unit, launched at PLASA and to reflect the familiar Windows style applications and navigation, including copy, paste and save functions between presets and DSP devices.
Version 3.3 provides the facility for custom Sys-Net and MIDI strings to be programmed into patch settings, triggering the operation of Sys Net or MIDI compatible equipment such as a CD player, lighting or effects unit, when a patch is recalled. Similarly, soft LEDs and logic outputs can now be controlled by level sensing within a channel.
The software also enables functions such as inter iDR paging and patch recall to be controlled across the network in larger installations involving more than one iDR system.
The matrix has been updated with the inclusion of a dB value to the cross-point faders, enabling the user to set up audio levels more accurately, particularly when designing the system offline on a PC.
