Lake Technology announced a host of new features in its Contour Controller Version 2 software, including full integration with the new Lake SmaartLive Controller V. 5 software, which is also now shipping. SmaartLive Controller software is available as a 30-day, fully functional demo on the new Lake Contour Website, www.contour.lake.com. Fully functional Contour Controller software and software user guides are also available for download. Contour Controller V. 2 software is provided as a free upgrade to all existing Contour customers.
The SmaartLive Controller software supports bi-directional communication between the Contour Controller and SIA SmaartLive, allowing SmaartLive's spectrum, spectrograph and transfer function measurement results to be displayed within the Contour Controller EQ and XOVER Overlay pages while also passing control information from the Contour Controller back to SmaartLive. The communication link can be provided on the same host computer or across an Ethernet network connecting two computers.
The new Contour Controller release supports user selection of the input signal to each Contour module. Either channel A, channel B or a mono sum of both A and B may be selected via the Properties page. Block diagram navigation has additionally been added, permitting users to jump to a location within the interface by clicking on a block in the diagram. Toolbar Context arrow buttons further allow the user to instantly jump from the current location to another in the Contour Controller interface to make quick changes.
Additional enhancements include overlay A/B switching within the EQ Overlay interface; user selection of milliseconds, feet or meters on the delay units page; stereo linking of crossover and output EQ selectable across stereo modules on the same frame; and crossover bypass, allowing users to create custom crossover functions with HPF and/or LPF filters removed from an output channel.
