In this video, the third of a series from BVE 2018, Mike Thornton talks to Jan Lykke from DAD about the SPQ DSP Speaker Processor card, the new speaker processing option available for the AX32 and how to set it up in DADman.
What Can The SPQ DSP Speaker Processor Card Do?
The SPQ DSP Speaker Processor card is a hardware option for the AX32. It brings comprehensive EQ and bus management to the, already very capable, AX32. It was designed to strike the right balance between flexibility and ease of use.
- 128 Channels @48kHz
- 64 Channels @96kHz
- 16 Channels @ Sample rates up to 384kHz, making the SPQ DSP Speaker Processor card suitable for DSD and high res workflows.
- 1024 filters assignable across all channels - typically 8 filters per channel. Maximum of 16 filters on any individual channel.
Analysis is done using third party tools, commonly Smaart. The correction curve is then input manually using the filters. This isn't an automated solution.
Delays on channels - up to 150 ms and a global delay for video sync.
