The new beta of globcon provides several enhancements for existing plug-ins such as the Andiamo series, MA2CHBOX.XL and M.1K2
Beta version 0.6 of globcon, DirectOut’s global control software platform, introduces snapshots for the Andiamo series, MADI.SRC, EXBOX.MD, MA2CHBOX.XL and M.1K2, allowing the user to store and recall all parameters controlled via globcon. When a snapshot is taken, all current values are stored into a dataset. Users can either recall the whole dataset or create a so-called scope-set to only change distinct areas of the settings and leave the others untouched. Snapshots are supported for single devices and on a global level. The new beta of globcon also provides several enhancements for existing plug-ins such as the Andiamo series, MA2CHBOX.XL and M.1K2, an improved demo version of the Prodigy.MC plug-in and a new demo plug-in for the Prodigy.MP. The updated plug-in for the M.1K2 supports label management and includes a new feature called ‘globcon square meter’ which allows users to monitor in real-time all the 64 incoming channels of each single MADI port.
A major firmware update has also been released for Montone.42, DirectOut’s MADI/Ravenna converter. The transparent transport of AES3 audio data over IP is now possible through the newly added ST 2110-31 support – the audio signal can be transmitted over IP, while the meta data is preserved. As a result, remote Andiamo devices can be controlled through audio-over-IP streams. Switchable transparency modes in the Montone.42 allow users to safely transmit non-PCM data, such as Dolby E, over ST 2110-31 streams.
