The new Meyer Sound Galileo Callisto 616 AES primary array processor, which will begin shipping early February, is a powerful hardware and software solution for driving and aligning Meyer Sound loudspeaker array systems. Combining alignment tools like U-Shaping equalization and delay integration with a full suite of digital AES3 and analog inputs and outputs, the Callisto 616 AES serves as a flexible mastering tool for delivering digital audio to satellite Meyer Sound processors, including Galileo Callisto 616 processors and Galileo 616 and 408 processors.

The two-rackspace Callisto 616 AES includes six inputs, 16 digital outputs with eight mirrored analog outputs, and a full digital matrix processor. Working in tandem with the Compass control software, 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 and standard TruShaping equalization are available on each input.

Additional features include delay integration for automatic alignment of Meyer Sound line arrays, and atmospheric correction to maintain high frequency response regardless of changes in temperature and humidity.

To assume impeccable sonic performance for analog audio signals, Callisto 616 AES employs A/D/A conversion with 24-bit resolution at 96kHz sampling. Internal processing is at 96 kHz with 32-bit floating point resolution. Latency is fixed across all output channels regardless of processing applied, and dedicated connectors are provided for seamless integration of Meyer Sound’s SIM 3 audio analyzer.
