At the recent NSCA Expo 2004 in Las Vegas, Lake Technology Corp. introduced a host of new features in its Contour Controller version 2.2 software, designed to increase the power and flexibility of the Lake Contour™ digital speaker controller. The software is provided as a free upgrade to all existing Contour customers.

Version 2.2 supports integration with the new Lake SmaartLive™ Controller version 1.22 software and adds SmaartLive metering information, with SmaartLive's peak meters displayed inside the Contour Controller when Smaart is running on separate computer.

Version 2.2 software also introduces stereo 2-way and 3-way linear phase crossover modules. The 2-way module also provides an auxiliary channel. Users can select the linear phase crossover slope to be Brick Wall (default) or 24 dB/48 dB, enabling simple replacement of existing crossover designs. Lake Contour may alternatively be configured as a 4-way linear phase brick wall (LPBW) crossover using a single unit.

A stereo AES/EBU digital input and output (24 bit, 44.1kHz to 96kHz) is now available for Lake Contour. An Input Autoselect function provides signal redundancy, switching from digital to analog to maintain a continuous signal. In version 2.2 software, Contour processors equipped with the stereo digital I/O option are provided with an independent gain offset for the digital input level, providing to compensate for level differences between analog and digital inputs.

Additional enhancements include user selection of the A or B input or a mono sum of both; Overlay A/B switching within the EQ Overlay interface; user selection of milliseconds, feet or meters on the Delay units page; Stereo Linking of Crossover and Output EQ selectable across stereo modules on the same frame, and Crossover bypass, allowing users to create custom crossover functions with HPF and/or LPF filters removed from an output channel.
