Updates for Ergo
KRK Systems has announced the release of firmware and software updates for Ergo.
Released in 2008, Ergo (Enhanced Room Geometry Optimization) is a stand-alone hardware room correction system that corrects recording studio acoustics and is compatible with all recording and monitoring systems. It improves studio mixing space by correcting for ‘real world’ acoustic problems. In addition to firmware and software updates, KRK Ergo now offers support for Microsoft Windows 7 (64 and 32-bit) and Apple Mac OSX Snow Leopard operating systems, making it fully compatible with all major operating systems used in recording and production.
‘We have been amazed at the response to Ergo, and in particular the RoomPerfect algorithm from Lyngdorf Audio. This method of room correction stand head and shoulders against anything else offered in the recording and broadcast sector. The new firmware ensures the compatibility with new and future revisions of operating systems and extends this fantastic solution to all,’ said Timothy Dorwart, CEO for The Stanton Group.
As an audio interface, Ergo not only provides room correction, but four monitor outputs, a headphones output, a pair of analogue line inputs and an S/PDIF input. The new firmware/software updates also allow the recording source to be dynamically switched between the analogue and digital inputs. Ergo’s documentation has been updated to highlight its possibilities as both an audio interface with built in room correction, or a stand-alone system which can be integrated onto the back end of any existing audio hardware. Ergo is capable of correcting two sets of studio monitors or a full 2.1 system with discrete control of the subwoofer. The room correction can correct both the sweet spot and the entire room, and the user can switch between the two when others are in the room.
Ergo uses the RoomPerfect algorithm licensed from Lyngdorf Audio. Developed in Denmark it uses complex test tones, multiple measurements and over 1,000 EQ points to control the audio environment. The system can derive data on room modes, power response, directivity and LF roll-off.
