Avid Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processor Card
Extremely flexible SPQ Speaker Processor option card enables precision calibration of your mixing environment, so you can tune your room to monitor in any speaker configuration, from stereo to immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos.
Avid Pro Tools MTRX SPQ Speaker Processor Card is a hardware option card that brings comprehensive EQ and bus management to the already very powerful MTRX. It was designed to strike the right balance between flexibility and ease of use and gives you powerful monitor control for all configurations including stereo, 2.1, 5.1, 7.1, immersive formats like Dolby ATMOS and more.
The SPQ speaker processor card allows you to add up to 1,024 EQ filters across 128 channels at 48 kHz. You can use a maximum of 16 filters on each channel until the 1,024 limit has been reached. But if you work at higher resolutions, the system supports 96 kHz (64 channels), 192 kHz (32 channels) and 384 kHz (16 channels). Filters for all sample rates are available natively on the SPQ card when sample rates are changed.
The SPQ Card can be configured to various different filter characteristics and channel layouts via the DADman control software and is all integrated and easily managed by the Pro|Mon monitor control section in DADman. The SPQ Card supports all the system sample rates and will reconfigure automatically and fast when sample rates are changed, with equal filters and delay independent of the sample rate. Delay can be set individually per channel as well as generally for a whole set of speakers to also accommodate lip-sync applications.
Normally one card is installed, but if more channels are needed more cards can be installed. The SPQ card does not have any I/O connectivity as it is a pure processing card. The SPQ card provides filters for channel-based speaker EQ and well as Bass Management.
The SPQ setting is stored in the Pro|Mon monitor profile in DADman, and speaker settings can be recalled separately from stored monitor profiles for fast change of parameters.
