An updated Display for the MLA Series
To ensure that its software its Display software package provides the most accurate prediction and array optimisation possible, Martin Audio has released version 2.2. Display is designed for use with the manufacturer’s MLA Series, delivering a numerical optimisation process to remove the need for tuning, DSP filter configurations and rigging information.
Operating on ‘the latest devices’ and Windows, Display 2.2 reportedly offers increased accuracy, with re-measured and recalibrated acoustic data, and an optimised hard avoid. The manufacturer states that improves sonic consistency is also supplied as elemental EQ is now full-band on all MLA systems, while the series’ arrays will demonstrate an almost flat average audience responses. Splay optimisation is also described as taking approximately 30 per cent less time than in previous versions of the software and the new Express Setup tool has been added for when standard arrays and default setting are used.
The update boasts a Matlab graphics system and enhanced usability with more room in the EQ tab provided for the audience and goal value graphs, simpler access to recent files, additional options for reference level, an auto-scale frequency response plot in the SPL view, and the ability to generate rigging reports for printing for any type of system.
Display 2.2 has been distributed to existing MLA owners automatically and has been released simultaneously with Martin Audio’s VU-Net 2.0 control and monitoring software, which allows for the adaptation of the input EQ to the new output from both updated software packages. It also supports CDD-Live, for comprehensive control and monitoring of the manufacturer’s systems.
