RocketGUI has released its Total Music 2 module for AMX, which is the second generation of the company’s module for providing cost-effective music server and streaming music services control to AMX control systems.
The new module has a redesigned interface to work more efficiently on smaller touchpanels and no longer requires the use of Logitech’s Squeezebox Server software for access and control of streaming music services like Pandora, Rhapsody, and Sirius Internet Radio.
The module provides complete multi-zone and multi-interface access and control of music for AMX-controlled residential distributed audio systems and a fraction of the cost of other solutions. Utilizing Squeezebox network music clients by Logitech, Total Music 2 supports from one to eight independent audio streams and provides cost-effective true music-server capability to browse, search, play, and create custom playlists from a locally stored music collection, plus full access to Rhapsody, Pandora, Napster, Sirius Internet Radio, Slacker, Last.fm, Live365, Radio IO, and several internet radio stations.
Total Music 2 for AMX includes code module and instructions for integration with any AMX project, plus interface files in resolutions to support many AMX touchpanels (sizes include 800×480, 800×600, and 1024×768). Multiple touchpanels can control a single zone, one touchpanel can control multiple zones, or any combination.
Limited Total Music 2 functionality can be accomplished via handheld remotes and wall keypads with the included commandset. Users can enjoy quick, one-button access to favorite Pandora stations and other content via wall keypads and from remotes like AMX R1 and R4.
