Release Notes

Version 4.3.0

Important

  • Before upgrading Designer versions, it’s recommended to export project files to back them up.
  • If you encounter an installer failure during upgrade, allow the uninstaller to finish, then restart installation.
  • In order to push from virtual devices to online devices, or vice versa, the virtual device and online version must be on the same version. For example, new virtual devices created in Designer 4.3.0 are on version 4.3.0; those virtual devices can only be associated with online devices that are also on version 4.3.0.
  • Designer 4.3 is not backwards compatible with earlier versions of Designer. The database will not be maintained upon downgrading, and Designer 4.3 files cannot be imported into earlier versions of Designer.
  • Designer may not allow downgrading of some P300s due to a platform update to support future functionality and USB improvements.

Improvements

  • Support for new firmware versions
  • Export virtual MXA910 and MXA310 as preset file
  • Installer bug fixes
  • Usability improvements
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

Known Issues

  • With more than 20 devices in location or 60 on the network, some actions will take longer due to increased network traffic.
  • When a device is being firmware updated, it will disappear and reappear in Designer.
  • 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 soloing a channel on an MXA310, all channels will show as gated on
  • When one or more devices in a location are locked by Dante Domain Manager or Dante Device Lock, operations that affect Dante settings may be unreliable, such as audio routing, pushing virtual to online devices, or enabling audio encryption
  • Changing channel count of virtual IMX-Room device does not reset audio settings
  • When disassociating online devices from virtual devices multiple times, Optimize may not create expected routes; add new virtual devices and Optimize
  • Indications that show on the bottom of the Coverage map page may persist longer than expected
  • Forgetting a cross-subnet MXA910 on firmware version 4.1.41 may result in the device being rediscovered; close and re-open Designer or reboot device to see it as forgotten
  • When factory resetting a device from Online Devices > Device window, then attempting to add that device to a Location that’s already open and initializing it, the Location and Device window will close; reopen to continue working
  • Users with Astrill VPN installed will not be able to launch the app successfully; contact Shure support for help
  • When using IntelliMix Room, Designer may show a red dot and invalid software version for that device after installation. Close and re-open Designer or reboot the machine running IntelliMix Room to fix the issue.
  • Mute Sync will not work between P300 devices running version 4.2 and 4.3 firmware. Please make sure to update all P300s in a system to version 4.3
