Acusis Firmware Release Notes Latest

v1.1.2.1 (5/22/18)

This release adds some adjustments to input gain and a couple minor features:

  • Increase target level in AGC to optimize for longer distances
  • Additional fixed gain stage with soft clipping
  • Add 24-bit audio support
  • Add volume control capability
    • An adjustable volume slider should now show up in your OS's system preferences.
    • It's recommended to start with the input level at 100%, as the automatic gain control should keep audio at a reasonable level.
