Meyer Sound conducts extensive upgrade to its systems design tool

Following the introduction of the MAPP Online software program in 2001, Meyer Sound has conducted the most extensive upgrade to its systems design tool. Using local processing with no internet connection required, MAPP 3D works on both the Mac and Windows platforms as a free download from the Meyer Sound website.

Creating a continuous workflow from initial design to onsite tuning, MAPP 3D provides 3D renderings of predicted sound system performance within wire-frame venue drawings and complete integration with the Galaxy Network Platform and Compass control software. Comprehensive processing parameters can be optimised using MAPP 3D predictions, with the resulting processor settings pushed directly into multiple Galaxy processors. In addition to traditional calibration test signal sources, MAPP 3D determines the maximum linear SPL for music, offering an accurate prediction of a sound system’s maximum capability when reproducing music.

The combination of a streamlined interface and integration with Galaxy processors together with the importation of SketchUp (SKP) and AutoCAD (DXF) files is said to afford time and cost savings in both systems design and onsite optimisation. With multiple views and fingertip control of a free rotation tool, audience areas can be quickly defined within complex architecture. Line arrays can be configured and automatically splayed for uniform coverage.

MAPP 3D also enables virtual system optimisation in the design phase. The inclusion of virtual Galaxy signal processors allows processors to be added, prediction results to be analysed and settings synchronised directly to the hardware processors onsite. Complete output processing functions of all Galaxy processor models are available. Because MAPP 3D includes precise sensitivity data for all Meyer Sound loudspeakers, it can display predictions as real-world SPL as well as attenuation. The inclusion of sensitivity coupled with M-Noise compatibility reportedly provide accurate predictions of system headroom.

MAPP 3D loudspeaker performance is based on more than 65,000 three-dimensional measurement points, taken in 1/48th-octave resolution in the Meyer Sound anechoic chamber. The predictions are accurate across the full bandwidth of all loudspeakers, down to 12.5Hz for the very low-frequency control element.
