    Posted: 27 June 2017 at 2:22pm
So were Powersofts programmed with SigmaStudio once upon a time?

The "expensive hardware" can just be a suitably programmed Arduino, cos all it's got to do is translate USB serial data into I2S signals and feed them to the DSP. FreeDSP used this method. Analog Devices do make a £99 programmer that is possibly a little more feature-rich but, not really necessary. And Sure seem to have managed to make a very cheap USB programmer for sale with this unit.

However, that makes me wonder if - with a VERY cleverly programmed Arduino - Armonia could be fooled into thinking this is a Powersoft module?

well, will see when the bits from Sure arrive - $64 for the ADAU1701 plus programmers etc. If it works, it'll be good enough for the application...

Very outdated software that also require expensive hardware to be able to program the dsp board. Even Powersoft abandoned it. All DSPs are now adopted to work with Armonia.

Sigma studio is absolutely horrible.

Still figuring out how straightforward to get it working so not pulled the trigger yet. Sigma Studio is interesting, but a lot more sophisticated than anything I have used before. Just been working through some tutorials etc. to get to grips with it. Looks promising though. Found a useful intro to some of the concepts on the Powersoft website...

I would argue that if you set your DSP up right before the show the only thing you should need during is EQ - which is offered by many other tools.

I just settled on a dcx run from an inverter... yeah there are some efficiency looses but never got around to hacking it for dc operation... there is a manual on the net for doing it.

mini dsp sucks.... needs windoze or mac for changing settings. have 2x8 one gathering dust in the drawer, dont fancy carrying a laptop with me to the gigs.
