Audio Brains specs Powersoft X4 amps to combat noise pollution at Roppongi Hills
Powersoft amplification has been chosen to drive the newly upgraded audio system at the Roppongi Hills development in Tokyo. The outdoor area can be used for a variety of live entertainment with due consideration given to any noise pollution issues. After the careful deliberation, integration specialist for the project, Audio Brains, specified five Powersoft X4 DSP+D for the upgrade, which were carefully tuned to maximize the potential of the Martin Audio loudspeakers selected. A Symetrix Radius 12×8 was selected to feed the signals to the amps via Dante in order to ensure clear, pristine sound delivery with no loss of signal.
Using Powersoft’s specialized control software, Armonía, alongside the amps, all of the output signals can be optimized and the limiters adopted properly. A unique feature of Armonía is Operator View, which can help engineers during their daily operation of the audio system by enabling remote control from a smart phone, tablet or laptop, and using custom interfaces to control the gain value of any outputs. This tool also helps engineers to monitor the condition of the system all the time. “We now have control of the system’s output in all outdoor areas, adopting individual EQs and delay settings to create the best possible sound everywhere in the venue.”
