Theory Audio Design has followed its recent product announcements with a new update to its Automator software for the ALC-1809 amplified loudspeaker controller. Automator version 2.0 provides the ability to deploy high channel count Theory surround sound systems (up to 9.4.4 or 7.4.6) using two ALC-1809 units.
At the nucleus of every Theory loudspeaker system is the ALC-1809, 9-channel amplified loudspeaker controller. With 1800 watts and 96 kHz/32-bit digital signal processing, the ALC-1809 combines the functionality of five products in one: a multi-channel DSP processor, high power multichannel home theater and distributed audio amplifier, multichannel mixing amplifier, multichannel bass manager, and high-resolution loudspeaker processor, all in a 1U package.
Automator runs on the ALC-1809 and the interface walks installers through a five-step system configuration. With a single ALC, a 7.2 or 5.2.2 system can be configured from start to finish in just 15 minutes. With the latest software update, installers are now able to use two ALC-1809s to configure systems up to 9.4.4 or 7.4.6 just as easily. The new update also offers:
- A start up wizard that makes setting up your first system even easier
- New simplified wiring graphics and tabular wiring diagram that is printable
- New and improved speaker layout diagram
- Optimized Bass Management across two ALCs (with a minimum of two subs)
- Speaker distances can now be entered as feet or meters
Automator v2.0 is available now for download from the Theory website under the “ALC-1809” section.
