Powersoft releases Armonia 2.3.0. Since its first release in 2009, Armonía Pro Audio Suite™ has been a new and unique bouquet of tools dedicated to significantly improving sonic performance and system reliability. The software is designed for remote control and monitoring of Powersoft amplifiers. System engineers can easily perform on-line or off-line system set-up and tuning, real-time management and monitoring of all vital functions from a remote PC via a single intuitive graphical user interface. The brand new Armonía 2.3.0. release includes a set of features that improves both usability and increases integration with the Powersoft product portfolio. Thanks to the improvement of the Graphic User Interface, Armonía can easily control and monitor a complex system in a smarter way. LivingWorkspace™ is a component that allows a quick overview of the whole system status on the workspace obtaining information about signal presence, muting, gain reduction and clipping instantaneously. Link state and alarms state are also visible looking at the amplifiers’ icons (border and background respectively).

It is now possible to identify the amplifiers at a glance directly from the “Remote Entities” window. Using the same window it is easy to check the firmware version and to receive notifications in order to keep the amplifiers always updated. There is complete integration of the Powersoft rack amplifiers product portfolio with the M Series and the Ottocanali in their DSP version. Powersoft power modules have also been integrated allowing control and monitoring of a mixed system consisting of passive and active speakers with the common Powersoft Class-D technology. The Network Manager allows quick and easy handling of a multi-network interface through functions of device start, stop and discover. A terrific effort has been made to provide users with a simple tool allowing monitoring and control of a complex system from a single window as this is mandatory in real-time touring applications or in large permanent installations.

“We consider this release a milestone in the development of Armonía,” stated Claudio Lastrucci, R&D director of Powersoft. “A further challenge in creating software which allows system engineers to efficiently maximize interaction between amplifiers and loudspeakers.” Armonía 2.3.0. Pro Audio Suite™ is now available for download from http://www. powersoft-audio.com/aforum/. www.powersoft-audio.com
