Dynacord has extended the scope of its SONICUE sound system software with an update, which makes it suitable for smaller systems and day-to-day applications. With version 1.1, SONICUE now supports Dynacord L and C series amplifiers and includes an update to its Electro-Voice loudspeaker settings library, featuring almost all current commercial, portable, install and concert sound models.
SONICUE addresses the entire sound system and encapsulates Dynacord’s core design philosophies of simplicity, clarity and transparency. Its unique interactive design provides a clear and comprehensive system overview, making it quicker to set up, tune and operate sound systems with minimal effort.
SONICUE 1.1 includes a firmware 2.0 upgrade for Dynacord L and C series power amplifiers. Engineered to provide sound reinforcement for live music (L series) and permanent installation (C series), both series offer onboard DSP, advanced FIR-Drive and professional audio performance. The firmware upgrade expands the L and C series DSP structure to give users the same level of input or user processing as found in Dynacord’s tour-grade IPX and TGX amplifiers, with which L and C series models may now be combined. The user DSP block has been doubled to offer 10 bands of parametric equalization (PEQ); enhanced array processing features include five additional bands of PEQs and dedicated array delay. This enables L and C series amplifiers to be used for more complex setups requiring more options for system tuning and more flexibility when working (for example) with subwoofer arrays.
The expanded loudspeaker database allows users to utilize SONICUE software for a significantly larger range of applications. The software now features presets for almost all loudspeaker models from Electro-Voice, including the popular ZLX, ELX200, EKX and ETX portable series, and the EVID commercial family.
The database includes all parameters required by the amplifiers, including crossover settings, EQs and limiters for optimized audio performance. Expanding the variety of loudspeakers directly supported in the software means that more projects – from smaller installations all the way up to the biggest festivals – can now take full advantage of the benefits that SONICUE brings.
The software is available as a free download from the Dynacord website.
