Meyer Sound bolsters control software

AUTHOR: Inavate

Meyer Sound has upgraded Compass control software for the Galileo loudspeaker management system, introducing a tabbed interface, which enables the user to monitor multiple Galileo 616 units in a single window.

The Compass 2.1 interface can be scaled to fit any resolution display and the colours can be configured for night or day use. The interface and controls are the same for Windows PC and Macintosh OS X, so switching between platforms is completely transparent.

Compass 2.1 offers a channel linking system for setting control, simplifying adjustments of processing and output levels in one or more Galileo units simultaneously. The new version also includes a context help system and copy and paste of Galileo settings.

Using TCP/IP protocol, the Galileo hardware/software system provides all of the facilities required to drive and align sound reinforcement systems employing multiple zones. The system consists of the Galileo 616, a six-input/16-output, 2U, fully digital matrix processor and Compass software which provides comprehensive control of the Galileo 616 through a graphical environment running on a remote computer. Galileo 616 can also be controlled directly from its front panel for maximum flexibility.
