Las Vegas, NV (June 6, 2018)—At InfoComm, Aviom has introduced its new Boom-1 Tactile Transducer Processor, which supplements an IEM mix by feeding low-frequency information to tactile transducers installed in musicians’ seats, platforms or stages.
Compatible with all personal mixers, the system allows the body to feel bass frequencies via the tactile transducers, adding realism to the mix.
According to Aviom’s CEO, Carl Bader, “As a drummer and a singer, adding a tactile transducer completes the sonic picture when monitoring. I’ve been fine-tuning the concept for my own rig for years. It’s now an integral part of my performance. What was always missing from off-the-shelf tactile transducer solutions was refined control, a way to make it feel natural; and that takes a lot of DSP. The desired result is a dynamic extension of your performance experience and not a gimmicky effect. A well-tuned tactile transducer system provides a more accurate performance and significantly less sound-level-induced fatigue; and most importantly, it makes playing and singing with in-ear monitors or headphones a lot more fun.”
Aviom recommends the unit for use with most electronic instruments, singling out electronic drum kits and guitar and bass amp simulators.
The BOOM-1 Tactile Transducer Processor is scheduled to begin shipping in Q3, 2018.
