MACKIE PREVIEWS THE LP48 LAKE PROCESSOR EXPANSION OPTION FOR THE TT24 DIGITAL LIVE CONSOLE AT NCSA
March 10, 2005 – Orlando, FL – Mackie is using this years NSCA show to preview the new LP48 Lake Processor expansion card for the TT24 Digital Live Console.
Mackie collaborated with the industry–leading audio DSP innovators, Lake Technology Limited, to develop the LP48 Lake Processor card, which greatly enhances the TT24's functionality by adding Lake Technology's renowned Lake EQ and Lake Loudspeaker Processor tools to its already generous DSP capabilities.
The new Mackie LP48 expansion card brings a number of enhancements to the powerful TT24 in three possible configurations. First, the card can be configured in Lake Loudspeaker Processor mode as a 4 input by 8–output loudspeaker processor to provide eight channels of balanced analog output with line drive capability. Second, it can provide the user with up to 12 channels of Lake–designed insert EQ processing including the true response Lake Ideal Graphic EQ™ and Lake Mesa EQ™ with asymmetrical filters. Finally, users can configure the card with 6 channels of insertable EQ processing and a 2 input by 4–output Lake Loudspeaker Processor.
With the LP48 card installed, the TT24's onboard 5–inch LCD touch screen provides significant control of the Lake algorithms. In addition, the TT24's control interface for PC integrates a Lake–style GUI for easy access and configuration.
"Lake Technology is without question an industry leader in the development of exceptional DSP algorithms for audio processing," said John Boudreau, Product Manager for the Mackie TT24. "Incorporating their technology into the TT24 not only legitimizes its place among much more expensive consoles, but also affirms Mackie's commitment to providing high–level performance at an affordable price."
The entire Mackie product line is currently on display at the NSCA Convention in Orlando, Florida, March 10–12, 2005, booth # 0720.
