Built with Qt
Call Aurora Net by dBTechnologies the unsung hero of your concert experience. Think of it when those bass lines make the butterflies in your stomach flutter or the trebles make you tremble with excitement.
Aurora Net puts the control of your sound system at your fingertips. Arrange each amp and control its sound individually and remotely via touch-based controls and perform complex operations through a very simple and intuitive interface.
From the outset, Aurora Net was designed to be something special: Every action can be performed with a single click or touch on any touch panel or mini PC. To this end, their software had to be built with scalability, extensibility, and the capability to adapt to different form factors in mind.
One of the challenges was to develop a user interface that would function for both PCs and touch-based platforms. Qt helped dBTechnologies recreate the graphic designer's proposal with a minimum of time and effort thanks to the flexibility and customization options of the style sheets and widgets.
Another challenge was to find the most efficient and reliable way to put a real-time system on low-performance hardware in place. The requirements should at the same time match current hardware specs, be easily adaptable to future platforms, but also ensure continued backward-compatibility with legacy products. Thanks to the efficiency of C++ and Qt's object-oriented and multithreading structure, dBTechnologies could achieve the best performance for their software compare to other frameworks.
dBTechnologies evaluated and compared different toolkits and frameworks, some of them specific to the audio world, in terms of documentation, performance and development time. They chose Qt because of the extensive amount of information found online that helped them to quickly solve problems.
dBTechnologies designed a very unique interface, but thanks to the style sheets and widgets they turned out to be easy to develop.
