June 13th, 2012


The new Digitool® digital audio processors from Peavey® Architectural Acoustics® bring world-class NWare™ algorithms to mid-market contractor and live sound reinforcement applications.

The new Digitool Series is a trio of multi-channel, full featured, digital audio processing and control systems-the Digitool MX16, which is available now, along with the Digitool MX32 and Digitool Live-that provide stand-alone or external GUI-based audio controlin 8×8 or 16×16 I/O formats. The new Digitool models share a common processing platform with the Peavey MediaMatrix NION® processor, providing ample headroom for running the commercial audio market's leading processing algorithms on an economical and efficient subset of Peavey's market-leading technology.

Equipped with power and pedigree, the new Digitool models represent the new breed of state-of-the-art digital signal processing. The Digitool MX16 features eight inputs and eight outputs; the Digitool MX32 features 16 inputs and 16 outputs; and the Digitool LIVE features eight balanced XLR inputs and outputs for live-sound FOH applications. These all-new Digitool processors feature a full-color LCD display on the front panel, enhanced front-panel navigation, individual input and output mutes, and five-segment LED arrays for input and output signal monitoring. The entire system may also be configured and controlled via a dedicated NWare-based GUI running on an external PC.

All three Digitool models feature a front-panel USB port that makes interfacing with a PC for software updates quick and easy. The rear panel includes an Ethernet port for programming or connecting to a network; eight control voltage ports; and two RS-485 ports, allowing for a wide variety of external control. All three models also include a globally compatible 100-240V power supply.

The Digitool MX16 is now shipping, and the Digitool MX32 and Digitool Live will be available later in Q2 2012 from authorized Architectural Acoustics dealers.
