Audio Precision announced features of software upgrades for its 2700 Series and ATS-2 audio analyzers.
The AP2700 v3.30 and ATS v1.60 control software includes USB connectivity, native support for Windows Vista and improved user profile management. The company considers the 2700 its flagship.
It said the updates in functionality and connectivity of its audio test gear can be helpful as more engineers and product line testers move to laptops rather than tower computers for instrument control.
“In addition, the AP Test Signals and Resource Disc reference CDs have been revamped for the release with new tones and sample tests to make hundreds of audio tests faster and easier.”
USB will be the standard interface for new 2700 Series and ATS-2 analyzers. Current customers can buy a USB adapter kit separately; the APIB interface will remain available as an option.
Analyzers in the APx family of analyzers are already USB-enabled and Vista-compliant.
AP2700 v3.30 and ATS v1.60 control software update will be available as a free download from the ap.com Web site in August. The USB adapter will be available in September and will ship with new 2700 Series and ATS-2 audio analyzers. Customers can also purchase the USB adapter separately in an upgrade kit for $650 list.
