The NEXT LMS242 loudspeaker management system, brings a new level of audio performance and value to the world of fixed architecture DSP for live sound production and fixed audio installations. The "state of the art" 96kHz, 40 Bit Floating Point DSP Engine, the High Performance 24 Bit Converters, and the Precise Algorithms, guarantee high end audio quality.

The NEXT LMS242 has 2 inputs can be matrix mixed/routed to any or all 4 outputs; Ethernet, USB and RS232 connectivity for configuration, control and software/firmware updates is standard; Processor configuration can be accomplished in real time from the front panel or with a computer Both 2 inputs offer 650ms delay, 31-band graphic and 8 parametric EQs, a complete filter section (max 48dB) and a compressor. All 4 outputs offer 650ms delay, a 8-band parametric EQ, a complete filter section (max 48dB) and a true RMS limiter. The LMS240 configuration can be accomplished in real time from the front panel or, for ultimate control, with a computer, by using the supplied LMS software control GUI for XP, Vista and Windows 7. Connectivity over RS232, USB and Ethernet are standard. That makes the LMS240 wireless ready (through a standard wireless router) and able be connected to an Ethernet network, with max 16 units, and be real time controlled from any location. The LMS240 is an excellent choice among installers and live sound engineers that are looking for full features high-end audio quality processor.
