Avid Releases MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card

Avid has released the Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card for speaker calibration and bass management.

Built for the Pro Tools | MTRX audio interface, the Avid SPQ option card enables control of monitoring systems in stereo, surround and immersive audio production rooms. It allows users to tune rooms, manage bass and EQ monitors and cue signals for the most challenging music and audio post-production projects.

The Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card gives users precise control with 1,024 IIR filters across 128 channels per card (up to 16 filters per channel). It integrates with DADman and Pro | Mon software for MTRX, enabling customers to save and recall configurations for any audio format — from stereo to immersive audio, including Dolby Atmos.

In conjunction with Pro Tools | MTRX, the SPQ option card is an integrated speaker processing and I/O solution that streamlines workflows and eliminates the need for additional devices in the signal chain.

Developed in collaboration with Digital Audio Denmark (DAD) and designed for Pro Tools | HDX, HD Native, and other pro audio systems, it delivers the sonic quality of DAD’s AD/DA converters, as well as extensive, flexible routing and monitoring control.

Pro Tools | MTRX is modular and with eight card slots, and it can be customized to fit any workflow. With the addition of the SPQ card, there are now 10 different option cards that customers can mix and match to meet their needs.
