Supports 2.5.3+

This driver integrates the Sonance Sonamp Multi-Channel Power Amplifier with SONARC (DSP 8-130) into Control4 systems in 4x8 Mono mode.

Control4 does not natively support DSP devices (mixing channels) so the device operates as a normal matrix such that Control4 can understand it. If you wish to do DSP mixing (example: mixing a  hostess' microphone with the main channel), then it needs to be set up permanently in the web UI.

Note: Output Sources A-D in the web interface correspond to 1-4 on the device.

Driver Features:

  • Supports the 4x8 MONO output mode
  • Discrete volume control over each channel
  • Discrete mute capabilities
  • Input/output switching as needed for standard Control4 bindings to function
  • automatically
  • Set each channel EQ Preset (total of 50) as a Device Specific Command in programming
  • Set each channel Stereo or Mono also using a Device Specific Command
  • Basic Properties page with read-only information as possible (e.g.: read in device
  • firmware, make, model, etc.)

Driver License:  Site (one required per project)

  OVERVIEW
  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  This driver integrates the Sonance Sonamp Multi-Channel Power Amplifier
  with SONARC (DSP 8-130) into Control4 systems.

  Control4 does not natively support DSP devices (mixing channels) so the device operates as a normal
  matrix such that Control4 can understand it. If you wish to do DSP mixing (example: mixing a
  hostess' microphone with the main channel), then it needs to be set up permanently in the web UI.

  Note: Output Sources A-D in the web interface correspond to 1-4 on the device.

  Discrete volume requires firmware version 2.51 or higher. Please contact technical support at
  949 492 7777 x 5141 and they will walk you through the needed steps to update the amp. Please
  note that in order to perform the needed update you will need a Windows computer running Windows 7
  or Windows 8.0. More recent versions of windows are not currently supported.
