FRONT of HOUSE December 2016 : Cover 2

“From mix position to any position in the room, it’s hard to mentally process how consistent it is and how easily we achieved it. Anya has the purest impulse response I’ve ever gotten off of a PA system. The acoustic phase response is just breathtaking.” Robert Scovill FOH Engineer, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Everyone knows all of that processing compromises fidelity. Right? “Anya sounds more like a giant pair of nearfield monitors than a typical concert array, with a transient response that allows for an extremely dynamic show. In the Paramore show there are a lot of subtle elements that don’t always translate well into the mix. But with Anya, everything was immediately present.” Eddie Mapp FOH Engineer, Papa Roach, Paramore “Anya is extremely musical, very powerful and can be custom-ized to match any environment. What else can I ask for in a system? This system should be on every rider.” Stanley Soares FOH Engineer, Juanes, Sepultura “I have been in a lot of challenging venues. It is amazing to experience how easily Adaptive Systems can blanket the seat-ing area and drop off everywhere else – and sound better than any other systems out there. Every show has sounded fantastic.” Jason Decter FOH Engineer, Blink 182, Bassnectar “I was hearing a really clean, pure vocal and a very natural open sound. As I said, I really love it when you don’t hear the speakers. For me, that’s the mark of a great system! Thank you!” Jerry Eade FOH Engineer, Placido Domingo “I have to admit, I have never been that impressed with a loudspeaker in my life – it’s a game-changer listening to those loudspeakers.” Joe Patten Project Design Manager, CDA photo © Mark Hanna, FxN Productions That depends on the machine. Conventional line arrays use few, relatively large sources – like ‘acoustic pixels’. Applying discrete processing to each source means adjacent devices produce very different signals. This ‘acoustic pixelation’ creates impulse response problems that you can hear. Adaptive Systems are different. With a large number of sources that are small for their bandwidth, these systems were developed to harness the power of signal processing without compromise. They apply sophisticated algorithms to the high resolution array of sources to ensure that processing changes from source to source are small. The result is unprecedented control, consistency and most importantly a pristine impulse response everywhere. Like rendering the same image with a lot more pixels. You don’t need better processing to fix your machine. You need a new machine. eaw.com/products/adaptive eaw.com
