Symetrix’s Composer 7.2 DSP- and control-programming application adds a number of important features, including monitoring of Powersoft Duecanali, Ottocanali, X4 and X8 amplifiers and Panasonic WP-9XX amplifiers. A new emailer control output module, when triggered, can send an email message with predetermined subject and body copy to a predetermined email address via a predetermined email server. With version 7.2, the Input label of the output tab of a matrix selector now displays the channel name, instead of the input number, enabling source selection by text and drop-down menu. In addition, users can now change the unit type of an existing design in a site file and only the physical attributes of the unit (inputs and outputs) will change, while all other processes stay the same, including control screens.
Composer’s SymVue GUI authoring features also have been updated. Until now, level controls could be horizontal or vertical faders or a knob; now you can also choose up (+) and down (-) buttons that can be configured like other buttons in the control screen, enabling volume change without dragging a fader or requiring custom logic that turns a fader into a button. Text entry is faster with the latest version of SymVue: When one or more controls are selected in edit mode, typing text changes the text displayed on the control where appropriate, without having to select the text property in the properties window. In addition, dedicated hot keys make it fast and easy to increase/decrease the font size of a selected control in a control screen.
The upcoming version 7.3 update will also add integration for Attero Tech Zip4 paging stations and enable a Radius NX DSP to be a USB host for multitrack recording.
