Symetrix is shipping new upgrades to the SymNet Audio Matrix product line, including Version 4.0 of the SymNet Designer software application and new hardware.

New features in SymNet Designer 4.0 include a revamped system architecture with 1,000 presets, dynamic feedback control with Feedback Fighter and notch filter modules, additional levels of security, power failure indicator and nine more matrix mixer modules, as well as improvements in navigation, labeling, communication, graphics and firmware.

SymNet now has digital I/O functionality due to the introduction of DigI/O 12x12DSP. This new DSP device supports 12 channels (six pairs) of AES/EBU and Toslink digital audio formats in and out. In order to maximize all 12 channels, an additional hardware piece, the HomerLink breakout, is coupled to the DigI/O 12x12DSP via standard CAT5 cable. This setup allows a digital console, for example, at the front-of-house location, to interface directly to a SymNet ring in a rack room up to 100 meters away with extremely low latency.

"This is the fifth significant upgrade to the SymNet system since its introduction in late 2001," commented Jim Latimer, director of sales at Symetrix. "We're constantly listening to consultants and system integrators from all over the world and doing our best to provide the solutions they're looking for. Our ongoing development initiative is to focus on making this system as powerful, flexible and intuitive as it can be."

Firmware upgrades are included in the Designer application release and are executed from the SymNet Designer environment. Site files created in previous versions of SymNet Designer are compatible with the new version and can be loaded directly into upgraded hardware. Software upgrades and additional information are available as free downloads from the SymNet page on For more sound reinforcement product news, visit
