The Avid Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card is available now

Avid has released a new speaker calibration and bass management solution, the MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card. 

It was developed in collaboration with Digital Audio Denmark (DAD) and delivers the same sonic quality of DAD’s legendary AD/DA converters.

It integrates with DADman and Pro | Mon software for MTRX, enabling end-users to save and recall configurations for any audio format – from stereo to immersive audio, including Dolby Atmos. 

The SPQ option card enables control of monitoring systems in stereo, surround, and immersive audio production rooms. It also allows users to tune rooms, manage bass and EQ monitors, and cue signals.

The Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card provides 1,024 IIR filters across 128 channels per card (up to 16 filters per channel). 

“Immersive formats are now commonplace in film and television and becoming popular in music as well, and engineers need to monitor their work in multiple formats,” said Rob D’Amico, director, market solutions | Pro Audio & Digital Business Development, Avid. 

“With the Pro Tools | MTRX SPQ Speaker Processing Card, customers can maintain a consistent, high-quality sound when switching between different audio formats and speaker sets—enabling them to keep pace with increasing session complexity.”
