LDI Product Preview: Compass 2.1 From Meyer Sound

Meyer Sound’s Compass™ control software for the Galileo™ loudspeaker management system has been upgraded to version 2.1, available for download on the company’s website. This version introduces a new tabbed interface that enables users to monitor the status of multiple Galileo 616 units in a single window. The interface can be scaled to fit any resolution display, and the colors 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. Functionality has been added for new and existing users, including those who use multiple Galileo 616 units to manage sound systems with more than 16 outputs. This version also provides a sophisticated 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 comprehensive context help system and full copy and paste of settings. Using TCP/IP protocol, the 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 software. Galileo 616 can also be controlled directly from its front panel for maximum flexibility.
