FIR Designer 2.4 now integrates with Powersoft amplifiers. Transfer a DSP signal chain directly from FIR Designer to Armonía for use in Powersoft amplifiers via our new DTP (Direct-To-Processor) functionality. Pre-existing FIR filters (from sources other than FIR Designer) can also be loaded – with or without resampling – and transferred in combination with FIR Designer’s IIRs, gain, delay and polarity settings.

DTP for Powersoft works via an XML file which can be loaded into the “Speaker EQ” or “Output EQ” on X, Ottocanali, Quattrocanali and DueCanali series amplifiers.

Powersoft is the second brand to offer close integration with FIR Designer (LabGruppen LAKE PLM, PLM+ & D series amplifier integration was released in FIRd v2.3). We’re hoping to provide direct integration with other amp/processor brands in the near future. In the meantime, FIR Designer can export data in a variety of formats for subsequent upload into most FIR-capable productsWe’d love your feedback: Which amplifier brands would you most like to see facilitating direct-to-processor FIR Filters/DSP chains from FIR Designer?
