Firmware 2.4 now released. Once again, more functions added
Firmware version 2.4 for the SM30, SM50 and SM90 has been released. As always, the new firmware adds exciting new features to your instrument - and as always, it's free. Firmware 2.4 adds one completely new module: RTA logging. This module is designed for long-term logging of spectral data. It is also useful to generate spectrograms.
The functionality of the RT60 module was enhanced: it now implements both the interrupted noise method as well as the impulse method (both of which conforming to ISO 3382). This means that you can use either a spherical noise source (spherical loudspeaker) or an impulse generator (clapper, starter gun, etc).
Perhaps the biggest change is found only under the hood: a completely new remote control API was implemented. This means that third party applications (on PC, mac, Raspberry PI or any other platform) can now fully control the SMxx via USB. This enables powerful new applications and setups. Contact us if you would like to use this API; documentation (as well as a C# reference library) are made available upon request.
Overview of the new features in Firmware 2.4:
- RTA logging module added
- Impulse method added too RT60 module
- Powerful remote control API implemented
- Various smaller improvements and bug fixes (e.g. the status of the 48V phantom power is now continuously indicated).
The update package can be downloaded here (note that logging in is no longer required). The manual has also been updated. As always, the update is free for all existing and new owners of the Bedrock SMxx.
Your feedback and bug reports are (as usual) gratefully received and used towards future updates.
