The new MTX Universal Driver by Blackwire allows integrators to use Control4 systems and Yamaha MTX DSPs together in their commercial projects. The two-way driver allows for audio matrix and zone volume control while providing the ability to mix in microphones into a zone. Blackwire has been distributing the Yamaha Commercial Installed Solutions (CIS) product line for the past year, with dealers reporting great success installing these solutions in the field. This easy-to-install MTX driver completes the integration between Yamaha and Control4 and allows end users to easily control an extremely complex system with minimal effort.

The driver also features more than twenty custom input buttons that allow the integrator to include simple, easy-to-use controls on a Control4 interface that won’t overwhelm the end-user. For example, a microphone can be muted or unmuted in a zone simply by pressing the appropriate icon on the interface. Since the driver is a two-way driver, native MTX keypads and interfaces can also be used alongside the Control4 system and everything stays in sync.
