Ashly Audio’s AquaControl software adds additional features in update

Ashly Audio has launched its first major update to its AquaControl software suite which comes with templates, additional filter types and link groups.

The free update is a result of partner feedback and a focus on adding capabilities that give the integrator more efficient and effective integrations.

“Part of the promise when we introduced AquaControl and the mXa-1502 processors has been that we are developing a platform for our solutions that will continue to make integrators’ lives easier, system set-up faster, and overall sound quality better,” Ashly Audio vice president of marketing and business development Noel Larson says.

“This update to our new AquaControl software does just that. It improves integrations for all, at no cost to the customer. We look forward to even more enhancements in the future.”

The template capabilities allow for mic/line input, stereo input and output DSP signal chain configurations to be stored and imported into other AquaControl-capable devices.

“These saved templates are available through a simple options menu above each channel’s signal chain in AquaControl,” Ashly Audio director of engineering Dan Szaba says.

“They can also be accessed in the new templates manager tab. We’ve made it so the navigation and organisation of templates is as intuitive and powerful as possible, as this has the capability to greatly improve installation times.”

It comes with eight new filter types for crossovers, HPF and LPF including Bessel 5th-order (30dB/octave), Bessel 6th-order (36dB/octave), Bessel 7th-order (42dB/octave), Butterworth 1st-order (6dB/octave), Butterworth 5th-order (30dB/octave), Butterworth 6th-order (36dB/octave), Butterworth 7th-order (42dB/octave) and Linkwitz-Riley 6th-order (36dB/octave).

“The additional filter types allow for more choices for blending speakers together and brings more precise control of the system frequency response. We’ve added more slopes (db/octave) per each popular alignment type, including Bessel, Butterworth and Linkwitz-Riley,” Dan adds.
