SEATTLE, WASHINGTON - MARCH 2011: The Symetrix Jupiter series of digital signal processors are unique. Inspired by the "apps" paradigm of smart phones, the Jupiter hardware effectively morphs to perfectly meet the needs of almost any sound processing application. Over sixty apps (and growing!) are available at Symetrix.co, each tailored to a particular need in a particular situation. But before the sheer number of apps becomes its own undoing, Symetrix is pleased to announce the new Jupiter App Finder utility on Symetrix.co. With this new utility, users can home in on the perfect app with only a few clicks of the mouse.
"The Jupiter App Finder was inspired by many eCommerce sites on which you can stack filters in a product category to narrow the list of products to those with the specific features you're after," explained Trent Wagner, senior product manager at Symetrix. With the App Finder, users can approach the Jupiter's app library from two directions; either by the intended market/system type for the App, or by a specific feature in an App. Wagner continued, "For example, you can see all Apps we thought were best suited for Sound Reinforcement. Or, you can just look at the Apps that have Feedback Fighters if that's a feature you can't live without. Going further, you can stack filters to see only Apps that have, say, Feedback Fighters and two-way Crossovers on the backend. The possibilities and permutations are endless."
But the intelligent filtering is only the beginning. Users can compare up to four apps side-by-side, with the option to hide similarities among the Apps under comparison to zero in on their differences. In both the full list view and the comparison view, users can click on a thumbnail of an App's main screen to view an intuitive block diagram (signal flow) for the App. "The Jupiter App Finder has turned out be a great asset not only for our customers," said Wagner, "but for us to use at Symetrix as well. When a customer calls in for more information on Jupiter, it's really quick and easy for our support staff to get a feel for what the customer wants, and then quickly narrow down some Apps to suggest."
As Jupiter's app library continues to expand, the App Finder's value will expand with it. The App Finder holds true to Jupiter's "zero learning curve" philosophy by making a vast app library quick, simple, and easy to navigate.
