The German manufacturer has updated its Soundscape audio platform

A new set of performance-enhancing capabilities for the German manufacturer’s Soundscape audio platform have been announced. A Soundscape system has three elements: the DS100 Signal Engine, the hardware platform with matrix functionality that can operate in a standalone system configuration mode or be combined with one or both of two software modules; En-Scene, an object-based positioning tool; and En-Space room-emulation software. The latest feature updates are Scenes, hardware-based scene memory capabilities within the DS100 Signal Engine and for the Soundscape software platform; two new room signatures within En-Space; and a configurable “spread factor” for function groups in En-Scene.

Scenes enables snapshots of all DS100 and Soundscape parameters (Matrix, En-Scene and En-Space) to be stored within the DS100 hardware memory. Users can create scenes in R1, d&b's remote-control software, offline without the DS100 for later transfer to the DS100 hardware memory. These scenes can be recalled from there using R1, but also via OSC commands, either as a direct call to a desired scene number or by stepping through the Scene list step by step using the "Next/Previous" function.

Two new rooms join the existing seven concert and recital halls in En-Space. With the very short and "dry" reverberation of 1.3s from the Alegrie Theatre and the 5.6s from the Cathedral of San Vitale, users now have two distinctly different rooms from the concert halls already available and these are said to open up new applications and creative possibilities for existing designs.

Soundscape software allows for loudspeakers to be combined into function groups and the new “spread factor” increases the functionality of these groups. With an individual spread factor per function group, users can now adjust how the spread setting of the objects are handled by the various function groups, determining the energy distribution between the loudspeakers within the different function groups according to the specific needs of the setup.
