Rio Rancho, NM (November 29, 2018) Lectrosonics has released a firmware update for its Duet digital wireless monitor IEM/IFB system.
The 2.0 Firmware update includes new features, reportedly improved audio quality, front panel setup shortcuts, a volume lock and additional flexibility in setting the audio gain and limiter functions. With the new update, users can now do a front panel IR sync operation and similarly turn on or off the RF transmission without requiring access to the menus.
M2R receiver audio setup now includes an option for negative gain on the limiter screen, allowing adjustment to the maximum gain available, for instances where artists may be using extra sensitive earphones. The limiter screen now also features a meter showing the amount of gain reduction acting on the signal. Additionally, there is now also a “threshold off” setting, which allows users to bypass the limiter altogether for a more dynamic audio response.
The M2R receiver now lets users turn the LEDs on or off, by pressing the “up” or “down” arrow buttons on the pack, for cases where users might want to minimize the visual impact while worn on talent. And, since many users are employing the Duet system as an IFB solution for broadcast facilities, mono earphones may be used with the receiver.
The Duet system consists of the M2T dual-stereo half-rack transmitter and M2R diversity belt pack receiver. The Duet covers the UHF frequencies of 470-608 MHz in a single range, uses digital modulation for transmission, and can accept analog or Dante digital inputs. The Duet firmware V2.0 is available for download from the Lectrosonics web site.
