Amp Editor V1.4.0-2 for Win 10/8.1/7

  • This version supports Windows 10/8.1/7.
  • Since this software was not designed to be operated via a touch panel in Windows 10/8.1, we cannot guarantee operation via a touch panel.
  • Use the Editor with the supported firmware listed in the following table.
  • If you have already installed an older version of Amp Editor, please un-install it first and then install the new version.
  • Amp Editor V1.4.0 supports XMV firmware V1.12 or later. If you are using an XMV unit that has firmware V1.11 or earlier, you must use MTX Editor to update the firmware to V1.12 or later.
  • Please do not use the EEE function (*) of network switches in a Dante network. Although power management should be negotiated automatically in switches that support EEE, some switches do not perform the negotiation properly. This may cause EEE to be enabled in Dante networks when it is not appropriate, resulting in poor synchronization performance and occasional dropouts. Therefore we strongly recommend that:
  • 1. If you use managed switches, ensure that they allow EEE to be disabled. Make sure that EEE is disabled on all ports used for real-time Dante traffic.
    2. If you use unmanaged switches, make sure to not use network switches that support the EEE function, since EEE operation cannot be disabled in these switches.
    * EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) is a technology that reduces switch power consumption during periods of low network traffic. It is also known as Green Ethernet and IEEE802.3az.

XMV V3.10

  • Added a function in which the input source could be set as digital or analog for each channel independently.
  • Added the following redundancy functions.
    • Backup mode: Switches to analog input when the pilot tone of the digital input is interrupted due to a broken connection or other problem.
    • Override mode: Switches the digital input to a specified analog input when analog audio is detected.

Fixed Bugs

Amp Editor

  • None

XMV

  • None

Known issue

  • If the power of the network switch located between the computer and the XMV is repeatedly restarted, there are rare occasions in which the XMV can no longer be recognized from Amp Editor. If this occurs, the XMV must be restarted.

NOTICE

  • It is not possible for an XMV unit assigned to a MTX system to be monitored/controlled from Amp Editor. After an XMV unit has been used within the MTX system, that XMV unit must be initialized if you want to monitor/control it from Amp Editor.
  • Amp Editor V1.3.3 or earlier is missing the function that allows selection of the input source of an XMV per channel. In the case synchronizing a file which was made using Amp Editor V1.3.3 or earlier with XMV V3.10 or later, the input source setting will be initialized.
