SolaroConsole – Universal Software

SolaroConsole is the Neutrino and Uno Series DSP configuration software that replaces our previous NeuConsole software. SolaroConsole provides many operational improvements in speed, features, looks, layout, and new third party control enhancements that our customers will love. But SolaroConsole is much more that that….

SolaroConsole is the beginning of an entirely new universal software strategy for Xilica Audio Design. A software that provides three universal components – Universal Dante Configuration; Universal Protocol Control; and Universal Platform. Our first release version provides the Universal Dante Configuration and Universal Platform components. Subsequent release versions will eventually provide the Universal Protocol Control component. No DSP manufacturer has ever provided universal configuration and control from within one universal software before.  Until now.

SolaroConsole – Highlights

  1. Universal Dante Configuration:

SolaroConsoles universal Dante configuration is made up of three components. (a) It provides the ability to universally configure any brand of Dante interface device on the market; (b) It provides improved Dante Network Device management tools including – Dante configuration done graphically and saved into a project file with automatic audio routing of the Dante matrix along with an improved Dante View screen; (c) The user no longer has to also run the Dante Controller software application as everything is configured and managed from within SolaroConsole.

We use two methods to configure other manufacturers Dante interface devices. First, you will find an ever growing number of Dante interface device product brands already populating the SolaroConsole menu. You simply select the brand and model you want to use from the menu and drop it onto the Project View work area to be configured. Currently we have already integrated the following manufacturers and have their Dante enabled devices listed in SolaroConsole for an easier, more convenient way to build projects with their Dante enabled gear – Ashly Audio; Atterotech; Audio-Technica; Bose; Lectrosonics; RDL (Radio Design Labs); and Stewart Audio.  We will continue to integrate more manufacturers throughout 2016 including Dante products from Yamaha, Powersoft, Yorkville Sound, Focusrite, Vue, SSL, and others.

Second, for any Dante interface product brand not found in our SolaroConsole menu we provide a Generic Dante Device module that you drop onto the Project View work area and with ease, you are able to turn it into the brand and model you are using. Then configure it exactly as you would any of the menu derived product brands.

As shown in the Project View image below – an Atterotech brand 2×2 Dante interface model dragged & dropped  into the project from the device menu at the left and wired to the output side of the DSP.

As shown in the Dante View image below – the audio routing in the Dante matrix has been auto-populated based on the actions shown above – including the Atterotech 2×2 Dante interface device.

  1. Universal Platform:

Use our new SolaroConsole universal software on your Mac or Window’s PC

  1. Universal Protocol Control:

SolaroConsoles third universal component –  Universal Protocol Control (often referred to as 3rd party control) will come later in 2016 but represents the most important universal component of SolaroConsole. Imagine being able to drag & drop say, a projector brand and model, from our SolaroConsole menu onto the Project View work area and with that – being able to control that projector in your SolaroConsole project design using our SolaroControl and other control devices. More to come on this powerful and exciting universal control feature.

  1. SolaroControl:

The SolaroControl aspect integrated into our SolaroConsole software is all about “control devices” with a focus on wireless control devices. We continue to improve and refine our SolaroControl App (free of charge at the App Store or from this page) to provide the very best programmable, multipage, system control using iPads, iPhones, and Macs  and the same SolaroControl software for Android control devices.

We have also integrated a Web Browser Object within the control software. If you have other equipment that supports a web control page, you can integrate this control together with other control elements all within the same interface.

 

  1. Enhanced Third Party Control:

With SolaroConsole, we’ve done a lot of work in terms of enhancing what can be controlled via the Solaro family of apps. We’ve made this fully configurable so that the same software has the ability to control virtually any network based gear. That’s good. But what makes this spectacular is the ability to then add this control to SolaroControl. With one touch you can be adjusting your Uno or Neutrino. That’s old news. But now, you can also do anything you have the control string for.

  1. Creating a Design Project from Existing Physical Devices Found on the Network:

In the Network View of the application, you can now select desired devices by clicking on the device ICON (Ctrl-Click to select more than one device) and then click the “Create Project from Selected Device(s)” button to create a initial project design based on the devices selected. This function is a quick way for you to start a new design project based on an existing design.
