It gives customers precise control and allows them to tune rooms, manage bass and EQ monitors, and cue signals for the most challenging music and audio post-production projects.

“Immersive formats are now commonplace in film and television and becoming popular in music as well, and engineers need to monitor their work in multiple formats,” said Rob D’Amico, Director, Market Solutions | Pro Audio & Digital Business Development, Avid. “With the Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card, customers can maintain a consistent, high-quality sound when switching between different audio formats and speaker sets—enabling them to keep pace with increasing session complexity.”
