NeuConsole Software Release – Version 5.3.8


Dear Xilica Supporters,

Just released is NeuConsole Software version 5.3.8 (and associated firmware 5.3.8).This version includes a significant feature improvement that enables much better support for 3rd party control programming. We are confident this will resolve the previous inconvenience regarding our control strings (NO MORE check sum and NO MORE mac address).You can download ver 5.3.8 of the NeuConsole software and firmware at www.xilica.com – Products – Neutrino Series (or Uno Series) – under Downloads at the right.

All ver 5.3.8 changes and improvements will be reflected in revised Help files and product guides as soon as possible. The following are some key highlights regarding NeuConsole version 5.3.8.

1) New 3rd Party Control Protocols.

We have designed and added new 3rd party control protocols which will make it more convenient to program and control our products. It also provides additional functionality so that the 3rd party controller can do more comprehensive control. This new protocol works on top of the existing protocols (meaning there is NO change to the existing protocols, we simply added one more TCP port to deal with the new protocols). As well, this NeuConsole ver 5.3.8 release removes the need of having to add and use our Centro SM1 device for simple 3rd party control.

(Technical details…It uses TCP port 10007 and can have up to 4 TCP connections per device. (max 4x3rd party devices – if they choose to always connect on their TCP connection). You can configure up to 100 control points per device. And for each control point you can put in a max 32 characters name for it. And in your control protocol, you simple say “SET name 10.0” to set a control point to 10.0 dB. Or you can do “GET name” to obtain the current value of this control point_.

2) New Side Chain Compressor and Side Chain Expander.

These features have been requested by customers, consultants, and distributors. Now we have it.

3) Improved Device IP Reset Indication

We found that some customers had issues with our original procedures for initiating a device IP reset (especially on Uno processors as they do not have a front panel LCD screen). We have enhanced the mechanism to provide more feedback. In this revised procedure, if you hold the IP reset button while turning on the device – the yellow Network LED on the front panel will start flashing to indicate it has detected an IP Reset Request. You now release the IP reset button while the network LED is still flashing and it will perform the IP reset operation. Once released, all LED’s on the device will start flashing indicating IP reset success. They are set to flash for 30 seconds and then stop but you do not have to wait for them to stop flashing before moving on as the IP Reset is completed the moment they begin flashing. (This applies to DSP devices as well as our Mini control).

If you have any further questions regarding version 5.3.8 changes or have any difficulties that we need to know about please contact support@xilica.com.
