Sound Hive Logo

The revolution in sound is here. Sound Hive brings you loud, clear sound generated from any PC or laptop. Using the Sound Horent with Saber Stinger powered Igniter 2™ sabers, you will be able to blast the sound of 2 full sabers and up to 16 sabers (professional) to any speaker setup, including a PA system!

Sound Hive comes in two editions – personal, which is free for anyone to use and download, and professional, which can be used by saber groups to broadcast sound from performances.

Sound Hive Personal

The personal edition of Sound Hive supports 5 mixing channels of 22050Hz audio, and up to 8 sabers connected. This allows the individual that wants to use a few sabers with friends or really wants loud sound at a con for some sabers to be able to bring a laptop and speaker setup.

The following are the features of the Personal Sound Hive

  • 16bit, 22060Hz crystal clear sound generated from the computer.
  • Supports all the features of Igniter 2 (expect Multi-Phase).
  • Supports five audio mixing channels using TruMix with Auto-Compressing Technology™.
  • Two dedicated hum channels so that two sabers can be represented.
  • Three effects channels that are shared, allowing all effects to overlap, providing a rich sound.
  • Up to eight sabers can run at a time, where sabers 3-8 will run effects only (no hum).
  • Requires a Windows 7 or higher OS to run. Now works on .Net 4.6.1+!

Saber Swarm

Sound Hornet is one part of the entire Saber Swarm system. This system is the entire wireless solution from Naigon’s Electronic Creations, allowing Igniter 2-powered sabers to communicate with a sound server utilizing the ZigBee mesh networking. If you are looking for the personal hardware to make a small speaker setup that does not require a computer to operate, then check out the Sound Hornet.
