Galileo Callisto 616

Galileo Callisto 616 AES

The Galileo Callisto 616 AES primary array processor is an elegant hardware and software solution for driving and aligning Meyer Sound loudspeaker array systems. The 2-space, rack-mount Callisto 616 AES includes six inputs, 16 digital outputs with 8 mirrored analog outputs, and a fully digital matrix processor. The accompanying Compass® control software provides comprehensive control of all parameters from a Mac® or Windows®-based computer.

Callisto 616 AES is optimized to be a mastering tool that makes it easier to manage loudspeaker systems and shape overall system response. The U-Shaping® equalization comprises five bands with adjustable slopes, widths, and gain. Five bands of complementary phase parametric filters are available on each output. An additional five bands of parametric filters as well as standard TruShaping® equalization are available on each input.

Equalization parameters are easily edited in the Compass control software, with numeric entry or by graphically dragging frequency bands. Parameters can be adjusted while viewing multiple layers of equalization in a composite graphic plot to achieve the ideal equalization curve. The Compass software's intuitive user interface is the culmination of Meyer Sound's extensive experience optimizing complex loudspeaker systems.

The Callisto 616 AES features full digital operation with fixed latency across all output channels regardless of any applied processing. It can also be connected directly to the SIM® 3 audio analyzer, providing complete measurement and control for integrated audio systems.
