Hopewell Junction, NY (December 10, 2010)--Metric Halo has upgraded its Mobile I/O (MIO) Console software, freely available for download at the company's website.
The software, which runs on Macintosh computers, provides a virtual console that configures and controls all internal routing and DSP within Metric Halo's family of FireWire hardware interfaces. Version 5.4 adds support for infrared remote control and demos of Metric Halo's +DSP upgrade and plug-ins, along with a large number of smaller tweaks and improvements.
This new version supports the infrared receiver on the front panel of the ULN-8 and LIO-8 hardware interfaces, reportedly allowing users to control input gains, listening levels and more using a standard IR remote control. The software/hardware is said to have the ability to learn the remote control's codes and store them in the interface so that the remote control works when the computer is turned off.
In addition, users can now purchase single plug-ins without committing to the entire +DSP package. The first such "a la carte" offering is Metric Halo's TransientControl dynamics plug-in.
