A new era of monitoring

The MA 1 consists of an individually calibrated Neumann measurement microphone and the corresponding software for Mac and PC

Neumann.Berlin has launched the MA 1, an integrated hard/software tool for acoustic calibration and room correction, tailor-made for Neumann studio monitors. Calibration algorithms, jointly developed with the world’s leading institute for audio signal processing, the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS), reportedly ensure superior monitoring quality in any environment – from acoustically untreated bedroom studios to professional control rooms.

The system consists of an individually calibrated Neumann measurement microphone and the corresponding software for Mac and PC. It is an integrated system that allows very accurate adjustments since all system-inherent parameters of the Neumann monitors are taken into account accordingly. In addition, the Automatic Monitor Alignment uses calibration algorithms that generate a room-adaptive target curve and make precise adjustments to correct the respective acoustic problem. Depending on user preferences, the target curve can be further adjusted manually to meet individual requirements.

The software guides the user step by step through the measurements and analyses the respective listening environment. The resulting correction data is stored and processed directly in the DSP-controlled monitors. The user does not have to load a plug-in and deactivate it again for audio export. After the alignment, the familiar workflow remains completely unaffected. KH 80 DSP stereo pairs can be controlled directly by the software. All other non-DSP-equipped stereo pairs in the KH series can be aligned by connecting them to the analogue outputs of the KH 750 DSP subwoofer. Owners of KH 120, KH 310 and KH 420 monitors reportedly benefit not only from an extended bass response, but also from the room correction and the phase linearisation of the analogue speakers.
