AquaControl Portal is for everyone!

Sub-Heading Here







Introducing AquaControl™ Portal. Not just for folks who have made the decision to purchase the mXa-1502 Mixer-amp for their projects (and we applaud you). AquaControl Portal now provides access to anyone who wants to explore all the really cool features that AquaControl software has to offer.


If you haven’t already heard the news, AquaControl is Ashly’s groundbreaking, browser-based user interface for controlling its next generation of networkable and DSP-enabled products, including the mXa-1502. Until now, AquaControl worked just a like a browser navigating a website (except that in our case, the “site” or webserver is in the actual unit). This can work with virtually any PC or networked mobile device. Normally, that means being connected to a physical mXa-1502. So, what to do if there’s no unit available? Well, we’ve been working diligently to make sure everyone has a chance to work with and get familiar with our new interface, not just when connected, but anytime, anywhere.

Perhaps you would like to check out the software to help you decide on the mXa-1502 (you know-on a plane on the way back from a business trip). You may just want to get a little practice in before taking on a project with it. Or maybe you’re an integrator needing to program a job in your office, but the unit is on the job-site, or maybe it hasn’t even been delivered yet. No problem. AquaControl Portal will let you easily configure every aspect of the DSP operation, completely off-line. Later, you can simply import the entire system configuration to the working unit and BAM! Ready to go.

Improved Workflow

AquaControl Portal is designed to provide a convenient alternative to working with the web-based version and it incorporates all the same features and ease of use we built into AquaControl is there, including:

• Auto-Mixing

• Advanced Priority Ducking

• Ambient Noise Control

• Input & Output (Speaker Voice) Template Import & Exporting

• Remote Control Page with the new Virtual WR-5 wall remote

• Comprehensive Event Scheduler

• The usual collection of Dynamics, EQs, Filters, Delays….

• And much more…

That means it can provide seamless workflow when transitioning from programming off-line to a connected unit. Nothing is missing. The key features and navigation are the same, so there’s no confusion, nothing is left out. All the DSP and programmable functions are there at your fingertips, allowing you to fully configure a unit for your project.

There are also “real-time” monitoring and functions for the front and rear panels that of course are not active without a connected unit. However, all settings can take effect once saved and loaded into an actual unit.

Free Download

So, with all it offers, did we mention that AquaControl Portal is FREE! That’s right, AquaControl Portal is a free-downloadable software (available at that will install on your Windows PC and it appears and works just like the browser version.

More to come.

If this weren’t good enough news, it doesn’t end there. To be sure, new AquaControl-based products are on the horizon and when they appear, AquaControl & AquaControl Portal will be ready to take on all those new tasks. In the meantime, we will continue to upgrade and enhance both AquaControl and AquaControl Portal to deliver the ultimate user experience and make your jobs easier and less stressful, more productive AND more profitable! Stay tuned…

Big box to bodega, mXa-1502 is perfect for retail. Control background music (low impedance or distributed), paging in different zones “Clean up on Aisle 2”, and sound masking. Control it all wirelessly from a tablet or PC.
mXa more than fills the audio needs of school lecture halls, auditorium, gymnasiums or multi-purpose rooms. Plug in up to eight microphones and two A/V sources such as laptops or DVD players.
An mXa-1502 is a winning combination for a school’s outdoor sports fields. Mics for an announcer, on-field presentations, or recorded music (if the band is out with COVID). 150 watts per channel drives the field’s speaker system with power to spare.
Background music throughout the restaurant, separate sound for the bar or lounge, patio, and waiting area. No other company makes a problem solver like the mXa-1502. It takes up minimal space, ­delivers plenty of power, and can be controlled with wireless tablets at reception and/or bar.
Divide and conquer hotel ballrooms with the mXa-1502. Plenty of mic inputs, A/V inputs for the presenter’s laptop, and 300 watts of power for portable speakers. You can even use one mXa-1502 to handle two separate, divided segments of a ballroom with mono sound.

Overview –

The mXa-1502 with AquaControl™ provides total control over four separate zones with a rich compliment of digital signal processing, including routing, auto-mixing, ducking, amplifier monitoring, event scheduling/triggering and more. All through our easy-to-use AquaControl™ that doesn’t require a week of tutorials to understand and configure. It lets you and your customers navigate using virtually any browser-enabled device. Trouble-shoot or re-configure it without having to travel to the client location. Or add our hard-wired WR-1.1 single-gang remote.
