Berkeley, CA (October 7, 2015)—Meyer Sound has introduced Amie, the company’s first studio monitor in more than two decades.
Developed to meet the needs of Skywalker Sound, Amie is designed to deliver clarity in production environments—film, broadcast or gaming post production—where accurate translation to larger systems is key.
“Amie brings an incredibly smooth response across the spectrum,” says Leslie Shatz, Wildfire Post Studios sound designer and re-recording mixer who has worked with a beta version of Amie. “It is very accurate for dialogue EQ evaluation in post production and despite its light weight, it can handle as much power as I need even when monitoring very loud sequences. And most importantly, its translation is spot-on when I listen to my work in larger mix theaters including the Meyer Sound-equipped Wildfire South Stage.”
Amie has been designed as a linear sound system that extends the translation of the Meyer Sound Acheron screen channel line to studio monitoring. The new monitor features a waveguide design that, according to the company, offers uniform coverage and precision imaging. According to Meyer Sound, its flat frequency and phase response and low distortion allows sound professionals to listen for long periods of time without strain and fatigue.
Built in Berkeley, Amie will begin shipping in November. Orders can be placed directly via the Meyer Sound online store.
