Meyer Sound has announced the release of Compass Go By Meyer Sound™, a new app that turns the iPad into a portable control device for optimizing Meyer Sound systems seamlessly and accurately.
Compass Go provides a tablet extension to the Compass® control software, the primary control interface for the Galileo® and Galileo Callisto™ loudspeaker management systems. It enables users to adjust system delay, gain, and mute as well as the extensive U-Shaping™, TruShaping™ and parametric EQ filter sets, while moving about freely anywhere in a venue. This new mobility can speed up setup and tuning before a show as operators listen for the coverage and quality of their main arrays and fill systems from different seats.
“Any new tool that makes it easier to deliver an exceptional listening experience is good news to our customer base,” says Luke Jenks, director of product management. “Compass Go brings the familiar tools from the desktop Compass version, while adding an intuitive user experience and convenience that will surely be appreciated.”
To start Compass Go, users can simply connect their iPad to a Galileo or Galileo Callisto processor on the same Wi-Fi network. Compass Go displays the current parameter status and provides instant access to adjustments made at any control point of a device. Users can recall snapshots of prior user settings for modification and create, edit, and store new snapshot settings in the individual processors. To ensure mission-critical control continuity during a show, an active wired connection to the Compass desktop workstation is recommended.
Compass Go By Meyer Sound is available for iOS 8 users and can be downloaded from the Apple App Store for free. Download here.
Compass Go requires firmware version 3.6.0 in both Galileo and Galileo Callisto.
