Powersoft has announced a brand new app for mobile devices, called Snapshot Selector. The free and easy-to-use app, now compatible with Android devices, allows users of Powersoft’s X Series amplifier platforms to instantaneously recall a full slate of saved settings by simply connecting their phone to their amplifier with a USB cable. The app makes the X Series amplifier platforms an even more appealing solution for audio professionals, including in rental environments.

“We are always looking for ways to expand the functionality of our products to better meet the needs of our users,” says Francesco Fanicchi, head of Brand and Communications of Powersoft. “The X Series amplifier platforms are already among the most powerful and versatile amplification solutions on the market, and the Snapshot Selector app provides our users with yet another impactful tool that makes setup of Powersoft-driven sound systems easier and faster than ever before.”

When users connect a mobile device to their X Series amplifier platform via USB, a link to Snapshot Selector in the Google Play Store will automatically pop up. There, users may download the app for free.

Henceforth, upon connecting a phone to the amplifier, the app will launch automatically. A simple user interface allows the user to save and recall an exact snapshot of all settings on the amplifier, including routing, equalization, and limiting, at any time. The app also allows the users to select the source priority that will be applied after the snapshot has been recalled.

Snapshot Selector allows configuration of complete racks and system without connecting a computer, as long as the snapshots for the loudspeakers are already stored in the amplifiers. This provides valuable functionality for rental amplifier providers or users, enabling rental providers to apply application-relevant settings quickly to an amp before it leaves the warehouse.
