The demand for simple standalone DSP processing has led BSS Audio to introduce the new Soundweb Lite 3088 programmable digital audio system at this year's NSCA Expo. The new 8x8 unit draws on the technology of the larger networked Soundweb 9088iis and associated products, but provides a less-expensive alternative for situations where the design requires a maximum of eight inputs and eight outputs.
Ideal for houses of worship, theme bars, boardrooms, clubs and many other applications, the new 3088 possesses all the capabilities of the networked version - a totally free-design DSP layout, large palette of processing objects, custom control panels and more - and runs under the common Soundweb Designer platform. This means that consultants and contractors who are already familiar with Soundweb will immediately be able to incorporate designs using the 3088. It also means that the 3088 employs an incredibly stable set of hardware and software giving users peace of mind.
Control options for the 3088 are similar to the 9088iis and include PC control (custom control panels), simple control from the 9012 and new 9015 wall panels and control ports, or serial control from AMX, Crestron and other serial-based control systems. The 9015 panel features an eight-way switch for selecting presets and a pair of up/down buttons for level control and other functions.
All standard input configuration options are available for the 3088, including mic, line and AES/EBU digital I/O, and the product will also integrate with the recently released 9016 video/audio and 9026 audio matrix switchers.
The latest version of Soundweb Designer, V1.40, supports the new 3088 as well as features a set of example templates and macros to make designs even easier. Version 1.40 is available on the BSS website.
