Symetrix (Mountlake Terrace, Wash.) recently upgraded its SymNet modular audio mixing, routing and digital signal-processing system to Version 3.0, its fourth upgrade since the product was introduced in August 2001.

SymNet Designer 3.0 software, a PC-based package that allows CAD-style "drag-and-drop" control over audio-processing modules, now incorporates a new category titled Control Modules. By selecting and combining the 50 tools included in the new module, users can exercise a greater degree of logical control over the system involving programming, simple or complex decision-making, and processing sequential, triggered events.

"This is a quantum leap forward in terms of the power, flexibility and capabilities of this system," stated Jim Latimer, director of sales for Symetrix. "It gives our users a clear advantage in designing systems that will be more accommodating to the needs of their clients, as well as integrating more readily into third-party hardware."

Dynamics processors such as automatic gain controllers or compressor/limiters can generate control signals based on audio input, which can then be sent to VCAs watching over groups of audio signals. Also new are capabilities for Supermodules, which appear as user-definable processing objects but have multiple functions nested inside. Supermodules now support audio or control signal inputs and outputs, and can be protected with a password. In addition, a graphical control screen has been added that accompanies the module during import or export between designs.
