I'm a Crown ITech user.
Usually I use 16 IT6000 at the same time, controlled by IQwiq Software.
Since the release of System Architect that I'm trying to build a control panel for my system. System Arcitect and IQwiq are quite good software but none of then as the ease of use needed for real world "on the road" applications. Let me put this scenario.
In the 16 IT6000 system, usually I use:
8 X IT6000 to drive 16 EAW SB1000 Subs (4 Amps 8 Subs per side) 6 X IT6000 to drive 24 EAW KF730 Line Array flown (3 Amps 12 boxes per side)
2 X IT6000 to drive 4 EAW KF730 Line Array front fill (1 Amp 2 boxes per side)
Now what do I need from System Architect or IQwiq?
I need one way to, really, link or group all the ITECH parameters. For example if I need to fine tune the eq on subs, I don’t have to do it in the 8 amps, one amp at the time. I can build a panel to control those amps, put a fader to control the delay and link that fader to each one of my sub amps. But instead of using those 8 amps for subs I need to use 10 amps for reinforce the subs, it's necessary to reprogram that panel.
I need to be able to link or unlink, group or ungroup, the ITECH amps in an easy way. The Group panel in SA is great and acts great, (we have the one fader that acts like an analog mixer "VCA") but it's not easy to add or remove one amp to that group. I think this is very for rental companies like us that use the sound systems in different ways, from day to day. I think the most difficult is made. A great (for me the best) Power Amplifier. What we need is the best way to use it on the road. Ask your software developers to find a way to solve that.
