Introducing Jupiter

Jupiter packages powerful DSP into a zero learning curve, turn-key audio processing solution drawing its inspiration from the ‘apps' paradigm of smartphones like the iPhone. Standing on the shoulders of Symetrix' world-class SymNet DSP platform, Jupiter upholds our commitment to pristine sound.

Symetrix Jupiter DSP HardwareOne size never fits all

That's why there are three versions of Jupiter hardware: Jupiter 4 - four in and four out; Jupiter 8 - eight in and eight out; and Jupiter 12 - twelve in and four out. All inputs are software selectable for line or mic with phantom power. External controller support includes Symetrix ARC wall panels, binary or analog control voltage inputs and logic outputs, and control over IP of all app parameters. Software and DSP processes are identical across the three hardware platforms.

Sound matters

Jupiter's precision low noise preamps make your mics sound warm and natural. A full +24 dBu output ensures the hottest levels for the path to your amps. Jupiter's stellar 110 dB dynamic range makes for an unusually low system noise floor.

External control

Multiple external control options provide greater end user accessibility. You can use Symetrix RS-485 ARC wall panels for volume control, source and preset selection. Third-party control over IP is quick to implement because Jupiter's ASCII control protocol is humanly readable with short and simple commands. Logic inputs and outputs integrate with external control hardware like custom indicator panels, life safety systems and remote camera switchers.

The brains behind the brawn

The Jupiter system software is the bridge between the Jupiter app library and Jupiter hardware. Grab an app from the library, download it to hardware, and dial in your audio. It's just that easy.

Symetrix Jupiter AppsThere's an app for that

Using Jupiter predesigned apps for audio processing is like using productivity apps on a smartphone. With a simple download, tap into one of the multiple personalities of Jupiter - no design time, no learning curve.

DSP modules are the building blocks for Jupiter apps. A partial list includes: gain-sharing and gating automixers, matrix mixers, EQ and filters of all flavors, feedback fighters, compressor/limiter/expanders, SPL computers and, for the first time at such an affordable price point, FIR filters.

As easy as reading a book

A Jupiter apps' main screen displays its signal flow overview showing blocks of DSP modules placed in order of signal flow with input/output channels in numerical order from top to bottom. There's quick access to important controls like module active buttons, stereo linking and mutes. Meters for inputs and outputs are visible at the top of the screen. A single click on a DSP module opens that modules' clean and intuitive graphics as you put your creativity to work. Another single click returns you back to the apps' main screen. It's just that easy.

Keeping tabs on your universe

The Tools menu is home to Jupiter's wizards and managers. The connection wizard guides you through hardware discovery step by step. With the external control wizard, one or many operating parameters can be assigned to ARC wall panels or third-party controllers. With the preset manager you edit and create recallable presets and the event manager schedules those presets for timely automatic recall if you so desire.

The Jupiter system software and all apps are free and run on the Windows OS, XP or higher.
