LexiconÂ®, a Harman International Company (NYSE-HAR) recently updated the software to the PCM96 and PCM96 Surround to make them compatible with both Pro Tools 8 as well as Mac OS X 10.5.7. In addition, software version 188.8.131.52 represents a major effort towards the improvement of streaming audio and control functionality of both systems.
â€œThis new software update emphasizes Lexiconâ€™s commitment to provide PCM96 and PCM96 Surround users with regular software updates that expand DAW and Mac OS X support, along with providing enhancements to improve software performance and make the system more stable and reliableâ€?, said Randy Garrett, Director of Marketing for Lexicon. â€œWith this software update we have taken the industryâ€™s best processors, and made them even better.â€?
Featuring a wide array of rich, complex reverb algorithms with related delays and effects, the single rack-space PCM96 and PCM96 Surround processors integrate seamlessly into
the modern studio as a control-only DAW insert or FireWire streaming hardware plug-in. The updated software for both the PCM96 and PCM96 Surround has been optimized to be less processor intensive when using the hardware plug-in functionality, and the Configuration display has been upgraded to handle multiple PCM96 and PCM96 Surround processors.
â€œAs a daily user of the PCM96, I can tell you that it is a dramatic improvement,â€? said one Beta user. â€œI have noticed that the load time for the PCM96 plug-in is lightning fast, the latency is greatly decreased, and the overall burden on my system is greatly diminished.â€?
