The new Digitool digital audio processors from the Peavey Architectural Acoustics division bring NWare algorithms to mid-market contractor and live sound reinforcement applications.
The new Digitool Series is a trio of multi-channel digital audio processing and control systems. The Digitool MX16, which is available now, along with the Digitool MX32 and Digitool Live (available later this year), provide stand-alone or external GUI-based audio control in 8 x 8 or 16 x 16 I/O formats.
The new Digitool models share a common processing platform with the Peavey MediaMatrix NION processor, providing ample headroom for running the algorithms on an economical and efficient subset of Peavey’s processing technology.
The Digitool LIVE offers eight balanced XLR inputs and outputs for live sound applications.
All Digitool processors offer a full-color LCD display on the front panel, enhanced front-panel navigation, individual input and output mutes, and five-segment LED arrays for input and output signal monitoring.
The entire system may also be configured and controlled via a dedicated NWare-based GUI running on an external PC.
All three Digitool models feature a front-panel USB port that makes interfacing with a PC for software updates quick and easy.
The rear panel includes an Ethernet port for programming or connecting to a network; eight control voltage ports; and two RS-485 ports, allowing for a wide variety of external control.
All three models also include a globally compatible 100-240-volt power supply.
The Digitool MX16 is shipping now, while the Digitool MX32 and Digitool Live will be available later in 2012 from authorized Architectural Acoustics dealers.
