8.3.1 Fixes and Improvements

The following issues have been resolved or improved in Composer 8.3.1:

  • Control Server: In certain network configurations, Control Screens would not connect properly to the DSP.
  • T-Series: Added Remote Terminal command to calibrate T-5 screen on next boot (TCAL). You can also do ‘TCAL 0’ to erase an existing calibration and return to the factory calibration default.
  • T-Series: Horizontal meters configured with a custom scale did not display properly.
  • T-Series: Meters configured with a custom range didn’t turn all the way off properly.
  • T-Series: Symbol Images on Radio Buttons weren’t scaled to fit properly.
  • T-10: When booting in Portrait orientation, the Symetrix logo and some diagnostic messages were not displayed properly.
  • Additions and Improvements to Help File.
  • Other minor fixes and improvements.

What’s new in Composer 8.3

Composer 8.3 adds full support for T-10 Glass touchscreen along with many other enhancements and improvements:

Key Features:

  • Support for T-10 Glass – Systems can be designed using the new T-10 Glass touchscreen.
  • Updated ASIO Driver includes a variety of enhancements including improved support for Windows 11.
  • Composer: Added right click menu access and improved hot keys for changing font size on Control Screen items.
  • Touchscreens: The pop up explaining the touchscreen can’t communicate with the DSP has a new “ignore” option. Choosing this will cause the warning to not be shown again until the next power cycle. This allows T Series to be used
    for applications such as Image/Text only control screens without a DSP present.
  • Over 30 additional improvements and enhancements.

See the 8.3.1 release notes for detailed information.

Powerful, Easy-to-Use System Programming.  Award-winning Composer™ for Windows® handles end-to-end configuration of Radius NX, Prism, an Edge DSPs…including creation of customized GUIs, scheduling, presets, logic, security, and integration of Symetrix and third-party control solutions. A complete end-to-end DSP signal path can be designed using this single app.

In addition to programming one to many Symetrix DSPs, Composer™ works seamlessly with Dante®.  It natively configures the setup and routing of Symetrix Dante® I/O Expanders and third-party Dante video endpoints, enabling ultra-low-latency 4K UHD video over IP with the same Dante-enabled Symetrix DSP system you rely on for audio.

Composer™ is “open architecture”. Audio signal routings, DSP modules, and control signal processing are at the sole discretion of the programmer. Systems can be designed to perfectly match specifications and conform as requirements change or evolve. All classes of audio processing modules for signal routing and shaping are provided. Application-specific modules address special purpose requirements like conferencing and room combining.

Going Deep with Dante®. Symetrix Composer™ has helped Dante become a defacto standard for multi-channel audio over Gigabit Ethernet. Composer’s Dante tools generate network audio — and now video — connectivity that is flexible, dependable, scalable, and supportable. Dante network routings, patching, naming and subscriptions are established and maintained natively from within Composer™ without need for additional software.

All Symetrix Composer-programmed DSPs are ready for Dante DDM, Audinate’s network management software that enables user authentication, role-based security and audit capabilities for Dante networks. Dante Domain Manager brings IT best practices to AV, making audio and video networking more secure, more scalable and more controllable.

Composer™ integrates Visionary Solutions’ PacketAV Duet® Dante-enabled video encoder and decoder products, eliminating the drawbacks of conventional switch matrix systems. Within the familiar drag-and-drop Composer interface, you can now route video, assign end points, control video walls and take advantage of live previews for confidence monitoring.  Composer™ also has direct support of audio and video endpoints from Shure®, Audio-Technica®, Powersoft™, and Clockaudio™.

Flexible and Robust Remote Control. Composer™ supports a variety of Symetrix and third-party remote controls. Symetrix new T-5 high-definition touch screen, telco dialers,  ARC Wall Panels, ARC-WEB, Control Server, and SymVue Windows GUIs are programmed directly from Composer. Control of Symetrix DSPs from third-party RS-232, UDP/IP, and TCP/IP devices is enabled using Composer™ Control Protocol.

Composer’s Powerful Control GUI Generator. SymVue enables the creation of graphical user interfaces in minutes – not days. Commonly adjusted parameters are chosen and designed into sets of attractive, easily accessible and familiar screens, created and tested offline without any code writing.

The intuitive SymVue Export Wizard works on Windows computers/tablets and Symetrix Control Server: Virtually any browser-enabled computing device (an Apple iPad, for example) can connect to Control Server and control Symetrix DSPs, accessories, and select third-party audio and video devices.

Logical Solutions for Complex Problems. Control Modules can be assembled in various combinations to elegantly overcome unique application challenges. Logic chains may be driven by internal audio or logic signals, or external RS-232, RS-485, or GPIO signals to trigger internal functions (e.g. preset recall) or transmit strings via RS-232, UDP/IP or TCP/IP for control of external devices (e.g. cameras, screens, and lights).
