WEBSTER, New York — Ashly Audio is once again upgrading its AquaControl™ software suite – and again, Ashly is making the upgrade free-of-charge. One of the major upgrades in the update is a virtualized version of the company’s popular, intuitive, and elegant WR-5 remote.
“The WR-5 remote is one of the most popular accessories added to systems featuring Ashly solutions,” said Noel Larson, EVP of Sales and Marketing at Ashly Audio. “It is constantly praised as an intuitive addition to an audio system that makes life easier for the end-user. The reason we virtualized the WR-5 within the AquaControl software stems back to our promise of being more innovative with our product line.”
The virtual WR-5 remote operates on commonly used touchscreen devices, allowing end-users to quickly and easily control their on-site audio systems with the tap of a digital button.
The software also includes additional notifications for preset recall and import, improvements to tips and warnings, and the ability to save and load individual presets to and from files and templates.
The upgraded software is part of Ashly’s commitment to long-term support of its overall audio solutions platform. In April, Ashly announced an overhaul of its ducker within the AquaControl software that brings improved flexibility and smoothness of operation, free from incorrect triggering and uncomfortable volume changes. This enabled greater customization of priority signal management to deliver a better customer experience in schools, hotels, retail stores, and restaurants.
“We told our partners we would listen to their needs, find solutions that work best for them, and help them win more business by using Ashly solutions,” Larson said. “This free upgrade is another step in the path to fulfilling that promise.”
The upgrades are part of AquaControl firmware release v1.2.4, available as a free download at www.ashly.com/firmware-updates
