Metric Halo in Hopewell Junction, New York, is offering Version 5.4 of MIO Console software (Mac only) for the Mobile I/O audio interface as a free download. MIO Console software provides a virtual console that configures and controls all internal routing and DSP within Metric Halo’s family of FireWire hardware interfaces.

Version 5.4 adds support for infrared remote control, demos of Metric Halo’s +DSP upgrade and plug-ins, and smaller adjustments and improvements. It allows ULN-8 and LIO-8 users the ability to control input gains, listening levels and more using a standard IR remote control. The software/hardware has the ability to learn the remote control's codes and store them in the interface so that the remote control works when the computer is turned off.

In addition, users can now purchase single plug-ins without committing to the entire +DSP package. The first such offering is Metric Halo’s renowned TransientControl dynamics plug-in.
