The two brands have released the latest version of Lake Controller software (v5.7) with accompanying firmware for both the PLM Powered Loudspeaker Management products and the LM 26 Digital Audio Loudspeaker Processor.

New levels of functionality are provided as PLM Series products now support a new processing module type. The extensive filtering can be used to create both crossover and driver EQ, facilitating linear phase, minimum phase or arbitrary phase filters. The filters can also be used to create classic crossovers and specific driver EQ. The new module, among other benefits, is capable of supporting EAW Focusing through the direct recall of EAW Greybox files into any PLM Series device via the Lake Controller software.

This feature unites the loudspeaker optimisation of EAW Focusing parameters with the Lake Mesa EQ input stage on the PLM Series platform for the first time, thereby offering a fully integrated system solution for sound reinforcement. Users can now recall Greybox output processing files directly into PLM Series and then create groups and tune even the largest EAW loudspeaker system at any granularity, all via the Lake Controller – negating the additional expense and inconvenience of a separate system EQ processor.

“These latest updates represent the greatest leap forward in terms of innovation that Lake has witnessed since the company moved to Sweden in 2009,” said Håkan Gustafsson, product manager for Lake. “The supporting of EAW Focusing, coupled with the Lake Mesa EQ and the powerful performance of the PLM Series, means that we can provide the end user with the kind of functionality that is simply unrivalled in the world of pro-audio.”

Other benefits of this latest version are said to include general speed improvements for Windows 7, multi-core processors and high resolution screens, as well as faster synchronisation between Lake Controller and devices on the network. There are also enhancements to Dante routing, synchronisation and general stability.

Lake Controller v5.7 is available to download now from the Lab.gruppen website.
