You can connect a NC/NO contact to any of the GPIO pins. In DM Designer add a 'GPIO Select' object to the design and nominate that to be connected to whichever GPIO pin you physically connect the NC/NO contact to. In DM Designer add a ganged mute to cover all the outputs and in parameters check the box to add a 'control input'. In DM Designer, connect the last output pin on the GPIO select for NC to the control input on the ganged mute. Load up the design and you are done.
Klark Teknik DM DESIGNER 3.1 and DM KONTROL 3.1 are now available for download, via the downloads section on the DM8000 product page.

Appriciate that this is an old post, but just to note that the Klark Teknik DM8000 is a current product, it's not discontinued at all. 16x16 Ultranet as standard, 16x16 Dante + 0x16 Ultranet as an option. You could absolutley use it as a loudspeaker processor, 10x6 analogue on board, and an optional 8 channel Ultranet based output extender available too, the DM8008.
Actually the Klark Teknik DM8000 DSP does have a USB connection, allbeit just a 2x2 capable one. I use my MBP with one for playback, and conferencing. So you could bridge Ultranet to that USB using one of those.
There is an 8 channel Ultranet to analogue output device, a DM8008 from Klark Teknik. You can set this device to reveive either Ultranet channels 1-8 or channels 9-16. It's a 1RU device, though the outputs are presented on combicons, you could easily make an XLR patch panel if that works better for you. You can find this online for around £350GBP
