Lexicon Pro today announced that its PCM Hardware processors are now supported in Harman HiQnet™ System Architect™ 2.3. The new version optimizes Lexicon’s hardware and provides more enhanced control and functionality to live sound and studio users.
The new version of System Architect allows for more seamless control through real-time input and output meters, control of all parameters and the ability to change machine configurations, clock rates, and audio source. PCM hardware users can now also store and recall device files, create custom control panels and transfer presets.
The Lexicon PCM92, PCM96 and PCM96 Surround reverb/effects processors are designed to provide the ultimate in performance and flexibility. They offer industry-leading features including hundreds of factory presets that deliver classic Lexicon audio quality as well as extensive digital and analog connection options.
HiQnet System Architect version 2.3 includes an improved Custom Panel Designer and as a result, makes it easier for integration professionals to create customized control interfaces that reflect system functionality and usage requirements in system setup and operation. Improvements to the underlying design engine mean that System Architect version 2.3 doesn’t just look better – it’s also faster. Performance for meter controls is also improved so panel designers have greater versatility to monitor larger numbers of devices simultaneously.
