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.

How It Works

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.

Why It’s Better

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.

Quality that’s in the Details

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.

Release Notes
Version 3.2

Designer Version 3.2

Release Date: 6/12/2019

Important

When upgrading Designer versions, the installer will prompt that the destination folder C:\Program Files\Shure\Shure\Shure Designer is not empty; please change the Shure Designer folder name (e.g. Shure Designer 3.1) or delete the existing Shure Designer folder and it will automatically be re-created during the upgrade.

In order to push from virtual devices to online devices, or vice versa, the virtual device and online version must be of the same version. For example, all new virtual MXA910s created in Designer 3.2 are on version 4.0.12; those virtual devices can only be associated with online devices that are also on firmware version 4.0.12.

Improvements
  • Support for MXA910 firmware version 4.0.12 with IntelliMix® DSP
  • Bug fixes
Known Issues
  • When using MXA910 4.0.12 firmware, the Sync Status between the virtual and online device will appear as ‘Not Synced.’
  • If no NIC is selected, some features on virtual devices may not work as expected, e.g. deleting lobes from virtual MXA910s; select a NIC to fix the issue.
  • When using Windows 7, no more than five windows can be open simultaneously.
  • Templates that were created from a location will be empty when the project is exported and then imported. This does not affect locations that were not copied to templates.
  • With more than 20 devices in location or 60 on the network, some actions will take longer due to increased network traffic.
  • When pushing to many devices, the status may incorrectly show that the push failed. For most devices, if the Sync Status changes from ‘Not Synced’ to ‘Synced’, then the push was successful. However, with MXA910 version 4.0.12, the status will always say ‘Not Synced.’
  • When deleting a virtual device, Designer will warn that encryption and password settings will be changed; however, the discovered devices’ encryption and password settings will not be affected.
  • When working with virtual devices and presets, channel names do not revert to default values when “Restore Default Settings” is clicked, and location may take time to respond.
  • In Coverage Map, changing the unit of measurement will not be saved for the location; the unit of measurement will default to feet when the location is reopened.
  • When importing a Designer preset file into the MXA910 web application, attempts to immediately export that file out of the web application will fail if it is not first loaded and saved to the MXA910.
  • When changing an exported project file name and attempting to import the project file, an error message may appear although the project was successfully imported; switch tabs or close and re-open the app to view the project.
