HiQnet Band Manager™ 2 software lets you turn the power of both the original Crown XTi and the new Crown XTi 2 amplifier Series loose while greatly simplifying system setup and management.
A smaller, streamlined version of HiQnet System Architect, Band Manager 2 uses the same XTi software plug in, but gets your amps configured with more speed and less work because it's tailored specifically to portable systems. Once it's automatically discovered up to eight USB-connected XTi or XTi 2 amps, represented in a virtual rack, the included JBL speaker tunings can be easily loaded into each amplifier. Band Manager features a sleek function-driven interface and intuitive browser-style navigation. The Home screen automatically configures and displays monitor strips for each amp in the rack plus front-of-house EQ and level control, and allows you to quickly access each amp's processing. Once you've set up your system, the amp settings can be saved for quick recall from the front panel. If you need more advanced control, any rack configurations saved in Band Manager can be opened in System Architect.
HiQnet Band Manager currently functions with orginal Crown XTi series and the new Crown XTi 2 Series amplifiers.
Band Manager is currently at version 2 which includes support for Crown XTi 2 Series amplifiers and a number of new amplifier preset files for JBL loudspeakers.HiQnet Band Manager™ 2.00.0.0-R1 FULL installer This installer requires Microsoft .Net 3.51 or newer
