The Galileo loudspeaker management system is an elegant hardware and software solution for driving and aligning loudspeaker systems comprised of multiple zones. The system includes the one rack space Galileo 408 processor, with four inputs and eight outputs and a fully digital matrix processor, and the Compass control software for comprehensive control of all parameters from a Windows or Mac computer. The Compass software’s intuitive user interface is the result of Meyer Sound’s years of experience optimizing complex systems.
The Galileo 408 processor shares the same 24-bit, 96 kHz audio quality and 32-bit floating point internal processing as its predecessor, the Galileo 616, though with fewer inputs and outputs.
Designed as the perfect complement to Meyer Sound’s self-powered loudspeakers, the Galileo system includes array compensation for M Series array products, presets for Meyer Sound loudspeakers of various sizes and types, and digital implementations of popular features developed by Meyer Sound over the years for its acclaimed analog processors, including air absorption compensation filters and equalization.
The Galileo 408 can be connected directly to the SIM 3 audio analyzer, providing complete measurement and control for integrated audio systems.
Four inputs – analog, AES/EBU or a mixture – and 8 analog outputs with full matrix mixing and routing
