What is it?The latest version of L-Acoustics’ Network Manager remote control software offering control and monitoring of up to 253 LA4 and LA8 amplifier/controllers within the L-Net Ethernet network.DetailsLA Network Manager 2.0 has been completely rewritten to match the live sound engineer’s workflow: setup, tuning and live. Each phase of the workflow corresponds to a specific page offering a dedicated set of tools to make the interface intuitive and quick to use. Colour coding and streamlined designs have been carefully selected to maximise its clarity and usability. In addition to a number of bug fixes and updated tutorials, the latest version of the software offers a range of new features including improved reliability of preset loading functions, one hundredth resolution delay setting plus an “All Messages Acknowledged” message.The Setup page allows users to create all unit and group objects which may be freely placed in the workspace according to their true location in the field. Unit types, IP addresses, presets, input mode and routing can be easily defined for each individual unit as well as for a multiple selection of units. Copy/Paste functions allow for instantaneous design of symmetric systems and set-up can be carried out off line with virtual units or by going on line with connected units. The new network engine offers automatic discovery of all connected units including the new Unit Matcher feature for quickly matching the virtual system and the physical system. And another thing… Third-party devices detected on the network are indicated to avoid creating IP addresses conflicts. These time-saving features are further augmented by dedicated preparation tools such as the Custom Preset Builder and the Bank Preset Builder interfaces.
