Symetrix Releases Vista-Compatible Zone Mix 760 and Deuce 722 Software, Plus Smaart(Tm) Support

As part of its continued commitment to the professionals for whom their Integrator Series of cost-effective DSP processors are designed, Symetrix, Inc. has issued free software upgrades for their groundbreaking Deuce 722 and Zone Mix 760 single-rack space processors. Both units incorporate the proven technology of Symetrix' SymNet brand of open-architecture DSP systems and deliver the optimal feature set and I/O count needed for restaurants, hotels, sports bars, nightclubs, retail, public address and more, at an amazingly low price. Version 2.1 of the Deuce 722 and version 2.1.1 of the Zone Mix 760 are compatible with Microsoft's new Vista operating system and add support for EAW's Smaart software. In addition, the new Deuce 722 software adds a host of functionalities released in previous versions of the Zone Mix 760.

With the free upgrades available now at www.symetrixaudio.com, integrators will be able to directly control the Loudspeaker Manager, Limiter, and Output sections of either unit from within the Smaart software environment, simplifying sound system tuning and room correction. In addition, the Deuce 722 adds support for the ARC-K1 Modular Wall Panel Remote Control, which allows control over either, or both, of the Deuce's channel levels with one wall panel, even from multiple locations.

The new Deuce 722 software also adds a number of small changes already present in the Zone Mix 760 that increase its expansive function set. Its analog control inputs are now fully implemented with each of the two inputs supporting two switches, two control voltages or one potentiometer. The External Control Wizard software now allows for additional fader and mute linking for greater control flexibility. Like the Zone Mix 760, the Deuce 722 now permits integrators to designate "ON" and "OFF" presets that can be triggered externally, providing the ability to create preset toggles.

Finally, the Deuce 722 features improved third-party external control via Ethernet with a fully-documented control protocol.

The Zone Mix 760 offers twelve inputs (four microphone, eight stereo line level) and six outputs, whereas the Deuce 722 offers two inputs (selectable mic/line and dual mono/stereo) and two outputs. Both units are loaded with all of the most commonly-used DSP blocks, including microphone pre-amplification, compression, AGC, ducking, matrix mixing, paging, feedback elimination, filters, equalization, and Ambient Noise Compensation.

Setup is easy and efficient with a straightforward Windows(r) interface connected over Ethernet, now compatible with all of the contemporary Windows operating systems.
