Powersoft has announced a new free app for mobile devices, called Snapshot Selector.
Compatible with Android devices, the app allows users of Powersoft’s X Series amplifier platforms to instantaneously recall a full slate of saved settings by simply connecting their phone to their amplifier with a USB cable.
“We are always looking for ways to expand the functionality of our products to better meet the needs of our users,” said Francesco Fanicchi, head of brand and communications of Powersoft. “The X Series amplifier platforms are already among the most powerful and versatile amplification solutions on the market, and the Snapshot Selector app provides our users with yet another impactful tool that makes setup of Powersoft-driven sound systems easier and faster than ever before.”
When users connect a mobile device to their X Series amplifier platform via USB, a link to Snapshot Selector in the Google Play Store will automatically pop up. There, users may download the app for free, and the app will then launch automatically upon connecting a phone to the amplifier.
A simple user interface allows the user to save and recall an exact snapshot of all settings on the amplifier, including routing, equalisation, and limiting, at any time. The app also allows the users to select the source priority that will be applied after the snapshot has been recalled.
Snapshot Selector allows configuration of complete racks and systems without connecting a computer, as long as the snapshots for the loudspeakers are already stored in the amplifiers. Powersoft says this provides valuable functionality for rental amplifier providers or users, enabling rental providers to apply application-relevant settings quickly to an amp before it leaves the warehouse.
