Plan amazing audio.

Designer

System Configuration Software

Make conferencing workflow effortless. Bring your users together across a campus or an entire business. Designer System Configuration Software makes audio implementation faster, simpler and more intuitive. With the details managed, it becomes a seamless experience.

This free software lets you design remotely and collaborate effectively. If the AV professional is working offsite, Designer gives them the flexibility to preset room audio coverage layouts from anywhere in the world. Templates can be deployed and adjusted on the fly, making onsite installation and project management simple.

Step and repeat

Create templates based on common floor plans that can be reused throughout your campus.

Pass it on

Room configurations can be saved and shared with colleagues for smarter collaboration.

Seamless routing

Designer provides a single hub for Dante™ routing. So you can change settings and route audio for multiple Shure networked devices without switching between apps.

Designer System Configuration Software enables integrators and system planners to design and implement accurate audio coverage for installations using a variety of select Shure microphones. Designer allows online and offline design, routing, configuration, and push to live devices, all in one tool. You can accurately model meeting and presentation spaces by importing a floor plan, scaling your room, positioning devices around participant areas and arranging the pick-up lobes over the room diagram for precise coverage.

Designer allows you to create and edit coverage parameters before your devices are installed:

  • Identify the microphone positioning, room size and ceiling height
  • Add channels
  • Create accurate coverage areas
  • Adjust equaliser settings
  • Manage signal routing
  • Single hub for Dante™ routing

After completing your design work offline, you can push the settings to the live devices and fine-tune on site, all from within Designer. If you prefer, you can always export the device presets to upload and use each device’s web user interface.
