ArmoníaPlus 2.0 System Design

Clever Interaction – Lighter Installation

With ArmoníaPlus 2.0 System Design Clever Interaction – Lighter Installation system integrators now have the tools to easily manage even the most intricate Install Project, through a dedicated Install Skin. This new version brings more than what you’d expect from a software update. It redefines what our amps can do, delivering a plethora of new features and streamlining the ones that have been available up to now.

Live Sound projects maintain the same structure from the original iteration of ArmoníaPlus, while Install System projects reflect the needs of system integrators for sources and zones management, and allow the creation of fully customizable user interfaces and controls in the new ‘Views Designer’.

Clever Interaction – Lighter Installation

ArmoníaPlus 2.0 introduces Source Objects. These feature individual EQ and gain and are used to define an audio source that can be dynamically patched to amplifiers and zones. Sources can be fed to the amplifier’s analog, Dante, or AES3 inputs; and can be configured as mono, stereo, and multichannel (up to 64 channels).

In case you've missed the launch event, here is how it played out.

Embedded Matrix

Powersoft amplifiers are now capable of managing mono, stereo, and multichannel sources and zones. This allows for a decentralized system processing that eliminates the need for an external matrix in many applications, and can also reduce the number of cable runs, resulting in simpler and more effective installations.

Sources

Sources

ArmoníaPlus 2.0 introduces Source Objects. These feature individual EQ and gain and are used to define an audio source that can be dynamically patched to amplifiers and zones. Sources can be fed to the amplifier’s analog, Dante, or AES3 inputs; and can be configured as mono, stereo, and multichannel (up to 64 channels).

Zones

Zones

Sources and loudspeakers can be assigned to Zones so that the different parts of the system can be controlled with a touch of a button, or with the turn of a knob. Zones also have their own EQ and gain and can take mixed amplifier output memberships.

DynamicRouting

Dynamic Routing

Zones can be configured to automatically route signals from any mono, stereo or multi-channel source to the loudspeakers, without the need of any internal or external matrix configuration. When switching from a mono to a stereo source, for example, the signal routing will be automatically distributed according to the user’s configurations.

DynamicMatrix

Dynamic Matrix

Convert any analog or AES3 source into Dante signals and share them over the network straight from the Dante Matrix, which is now natively integrated in ArmoníaPlus.

DynamicPatching

Dynamic Dante Patching

Patching between amplifiers and Dante sources is only done when needed, allowing the creation of offline sources, and providing a lighter solution for systems that require the selection of Dante sources.

CONTROL

ArmoníaPlus 2.0 introduces a series of solutions aimed at remotely controlling key system functionalities: zone level control, source selection, and system scene selection.

Passive Controls

The WM Level and WM Select can be shared over the network, meaning that a passive wall controller can be connected to one amplifier via GPI and control the parameters of other devices in the same network.

WM Level controllers

WM Level controllers

WM Level controllers can be configured to adjust the level of an amplifier output, as well as of single or multiple zones.

WM Select controllers

WM Select controllers

WM Select controllers can be set to work as source selectors for a zone, or configured as scene selectors that allow users to choose from different system configurations with the turn of a knob.

WebViews

WebViews

The ‘Views Designer’ makes it possible to create dozens of customizable user interfaces (Views) to control and monitor the functionalities of multiple sources and zones. These can be accessed from any mobile device with a web browser.

Sys Control App

Sys Control App

A dedicated app that allows users to control their system Views and to quickly load their A+ project designs to the amplifiers and external controls. The app configuration is also done in the new ‘Views Designer’.

ADDITIONAL

Multiple Workspaces

Projects, especially install ones, can become quite large. To accommodate for the added complexity, it’s now possible to create multiple linked Workspace windows to de-clutter even the most intricate and extensive project.

Synchronization Modes

Until now, A+ had a single “live” state in which it was always connected to the amplifiers, whereas in the new 2.0 version there are now 2 system statuses:

Synchronization OFF – allows offline editing and configuration of a project without any actual exchange of information with the amplifiers. At this stage, matching with amplifiers discovered in the network remains only virtual and any changes made in A+ will not be sent to the amplifiers.

Synchronization ON – A+ communicates directly with the amplifiers, allowing users to control and monitor their system directly from A+.

Controls & Views Modes

With the introduction of the new controls, WebViews, and App Views, users will have the ability to choose how they control their system:

Stop – external controls and Views are deactivated. System control and design are possible from A+.

Run – the project design is frozen and loaded into the amplifiers and the system control handed over to any passive control, WebView, or App that has been configured as part of the system.
